Huntsville Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys Fight Shameful Corporate Conduct

We have the experience and resources to handle complicated litigation

Chances are that at one time or another, a class action lawsuit somehow relevant to you has been brought to your attention, whether through a TV commercial, a news article, or by a notice in your mailbox. Perhaps you’ve heard of a pending or possible lawsuit involving a medical device that you have used, a current or past employer, or an incident, such as the BP oil spill, that somehow affected you.

Dozens of class action lawsuits are litigated each day in Alabama and elsewhere. At the law firm of Watson McKinney LLP in Huntsville, our knowledgeable Alabama class action attorneys are committed to staying at the forefront of contemporary class action litigation in the United States and fighting for the rights of our clients by helping them to join others suffering similar injuries. We take on those parties responsible for injuries and damages.

What is a class action lawsuit?

Class actions are created in situations where multiple parties have sustained similar damages in similar circumstances caused the negligence of a particular party or parties.

Generally, class action litigation is permitted when four elements are in place:

  • All of the plaintiffs have a common complaint against the defendant

  • The number of plaintiffs is so large as to make individual lawsuits impractical

  • The common complaint arises from a specific set of similar circumstances

  • The entire class of plaintiffs can be effectively represented by a representative few

Using these elements, class action litigation can thus involve a wide variety of disputes, including:

  • Manufactured products which cause injury to consumers, such as defective auto parts and medical devices, contaminated foods, or cigarettes.

  • Environmental torts such as the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.

  • Fraud, anticompetitive conduct, or other illegal activity by employers, insurance companies, banks or retailers; plaintiffs can include employees, consumers, clients, shareholders or competitors.

For example, our aggressive Alabama class action attorneys successfully pursued life insurance companies which priced policy premiums solely on the race of the policyholder—a discriminatory practice illegal under federal law.

What are the advantages of a class action?

Class action litigation is intended to prevent the strain on the legal system which can result when multiple plaintiffs each file individual suits in different jurisdictions against the same defendants. By combining all valid complaints into one class action, a class action lawsuit can allow many individual victims to successfully recoup their losses due to injury caused by large, powerful corporations and organizations by permitting them to pursue their claims on a significantly larger scale. Class action lawsuits are also a less costly and more efficient means of reaching a settlement and, often gaining compensation for plaintiffs in a far timelier manner.

However, because these types of lawsuits tend to be legally complex, often requiring both extensive investigation, as well as aggressive advocacy, it is important to choose an experienced Alabama class action attorney, backed with the resources of a firm equipped to meet the challenge of complex litigation, and a proven track record of success in such cases, to pursue your claim.
