Class action lawsuits are appropriate when a large number of people have been harmed by the action or conduct of an individual or a company. A class (or collective) action allows the entire group of victims to sue the wrongdoer for the same type of damages so that all members of the class can receive compensation for their injuries. Trief & Olk has represented plaintiffs in various types of class actions, including:
Claims on behalf of consumers who believe they were defrauded or harmed when they purchased a product or service; and
Claims on behalf of employees who believe they were deprived of wages they were entitled to receive.
