Class Actions

Class tort actions allow a group of people who have experienced similar harm to join in one action without personal obligation of payment of attorney fees or expenses. The individuals who are part of the class then qualify to be eligible for a share of the final award.

Our Indianapolis class action attorneys represent clients throughout the class action process in cases nationwide – handling certification, notice, and settlement procedures. We have expertise in tackling the most complex cases and aggressively oppose larger law firms and corporations on your behalf.

Consumer Class Actions

A consumer class action is a lawsuit that is brought by one or a few individuals on behalf of a larger class of people who share a similar issue. The class action seeks compensation for harm on behalf of the plaintiffs named in the suit as well as the members of the “class.”

We are consumers of hundreds of products manufactured by a myriad of companies. Some of those products are defective and cause economic injury. Some recent examples our firm has been involved in include:

  • Faulty GM ignition switches
  • Defective BP gasoline
  • Faulty airbags contained in many automobiles

Regardless of the product or the type of economic injury, our consumer class action attorneys are here to help. Our fees and expenses will not be your individual responsibility but will be taken from the total award to the class.

 

Property Owner Class Action

They are protected by the Fifth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. We are dedicated to the practice of preventing government and corporate infringements of private property, and can help infringed landowners obtain the compensation they deserve.

Our attorneys have led multiple successful class action lawsuits on behalf of property owners, including representing:
