There is strength in numbers, and class action lawsuits prove it. Work with a Los Angeles class action attorney as you pursue justice.
When the same group or organization harms multiple people, the victims can team up to file a class action lawsuit. In many cases, class action suits can be more effective than multiple individual suits.
Los Angeles residents may come upon many reasons to file a class action suit. From unreasonable employers to chemical spills, these cases can take on a variety of forms.
But filing a class action claim can be difficult. A Los Angeles class action lawyer at Haffner Law is here to help you get justice.
Los Angeles Employment Class Action Suits
Employers in California and across the United States are subject to federal, state, and municipal rules about how they treat their employees. When Los Angeles employers violate these rules, employees may be eligible to file a class action suit.
Class action suits against Los Angeles employers could arise for a number of reasons:
- Improper wages
- No overtime pay
- Unfair work hours
- Violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act and California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act
A successful suit against your employer could land you back pay and permanent company policy changes to prevent future incidents.
Class Action Lawsuits for Defective Products
More often than not, manufacturers distribute their products across the country—or at least across California. That means countless people can be hurt when these products are defectiveor otherwise dangerous.
A multitude of laws obligate manufacturers to only sell products that are safe for use. When a manufacturer has failed to do that, you and anyone else who was injured by the product in question can file a class action suit.
Defective Medication Class Action Lawsuits
Class action suits for defective or toxic medications are all too common and often sparked by horrific injuries and even deaths. Similar to defective product lawsuits, these cases might call for compensation from the pharmaceutical company that produces the medication, a company that markets the drug, or even a healthcare facility that carelessly prescribed it to multiple patients.
If you’ve been hurt by a medication, a Los Angeles class action suit lawyer can help you determine whether other people have also been injured so you can decide whether to file a class action or individual claim.
Environmental Disaster Suits
When companies cause environmental disasters, they potentially put thousands of people at risk. Common examples of environmental disasters include water contamination, toxic chemicals seeping into soil or groundwater, and oil spills.
An environmental disaster that has affected your health or life may warrant a Los Angeles class action lawsuit.
