Some lawyers and law firms advertise that they are accepting class action lawsuits, only to refer the case to another lawyer. It's also important to make sure that the lawyer or law firm is willing to work on contingency fees only and won't get paid unless your case is successful. In order for a class action lawsuit to be filed, it generally takes at least 40 people with similar claims. If the court approves the request for class certification, anonymous individuals who have allegedly been harmed in the same way as the group's representative are notified of the class action lawsuit and are given the opportunity to participate in the class action as members of the class.
The lawyer who agrees to initiate and file the class action lawsuit will anticipate all the costs necessary to file and litigate the case. In deciding what incentive to grant, if any, to group representatives, courts consider factors such as the degree of participation of the group representative, the amount of compensation for the group, and whether there is a change in practice. Class action lawsuits have allowed individuals to take on powerful industries and hold them accountable for their actions.
