Class action lawsuits are frequently mentioned in the news, but many people do not understand what they entail. At Quantum Legal LLC, located in the Chicago, Illinois, area, we are proud of our reputation as one of the country's top class action litigation firms.
If you contact us, either online or by calling 866-779-9610, we can answer questions for you like:
1. What is a class action lawsuit?
In basic terms, class action litigation involves multiple plaintiffs who have the same complaint against a defendant. All of the individual lawsuits can be combined into a large "class," or single lawsuit. At Quantum Legal LLC, we handle cases related to defective products that put many people physically and financially at risk, along with insurance companies that commit fraud by denying coverage to many of their policyholders.
2. How do I join a class action lawsuit?
In many cases, it may be as simple as not opting out of the case. Most importantly, you should discuss your potential claim with our lawyers to decide if you qualify and what your best options are for pursuing relief.
3. What are the benefits of joining a class action lawsuit?
In many cases, you may not be aware that you are part of a class, but you will be entitled to the same compensation as the rest of the class if the case settles or a verdict is rendered. Class action litigation allows you to avoid potentially costly individual litigation in favor of joining together with people who have dealt with the same issues as you.
4. Why shouldn't I just file my own lawsuit?
In some cases this may make sense. However, in many cases, the time and cost of individual litigation may not be worth the final award of compensation. With decades of combined experience in all types of complex litigation, our attorneys can help you determine the best way to proceed with your case.
5. How much compensation will I receive?
Ultimately, depending on the final settlement or judgment, compensation will be divided equally among all of the class members. We can help you determine if a settlement offer is fair before you agree to anything.
