My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client realtionship.
A class action lawsuit is a civil claim filed on behalf of a large number of plaintiffs who have all suffered similar losses as a result of the defendant's negligent or fraudulent actions. One or more members of the group of injured plaintiffs will file the class action lawsuit and serve as representatives, seeking to recover damages that will compensate every member of the group.
In order for a lawsuit to be considered a "class action" case, it must meet the following requirements:
(1) Numerosity - There should be a large enough number of similar claims to make a class action lawsuit more practical than pursuing individual cases.
(2)Typicality - The individuals who serve as representatives for the plaintiff class must have claims that are "typical" of the average plaintiff's claim.
(3)Adequacy - The class representatives should be capable of successfully representing the interests of the rest of the plaintiffs.
(4)Commonality - All of the claims involved in the lawsuit must share common issues and common legal questions.
If you and other meet these requirements then yes you can file a class action lawsuit. I would recommend an attorney or firm that is very experienced in these types of cases as they can get very complicated.
