Class actions are claims brought on behalf of potentially large numbers of people to resolve a single dispute. Sometimes it is too difficult or too expensive to sue a company, because that company is very big and powerful, or you may have a lot to lose. A class action enables a group of people with the same claim to stand together to demand justice in a situation where one person alone may not be heard. The claimants do not pay the costs of running this class action up front, as Chamberlains Law Firm has secured litigation funding.
