In Class Actions, are there any risks for the Plaintiffs? E.g. in case that the Plaintiffs loose in court. Can they e.g. be forced to pay the attorneys and other expenses of the Defendants?
No, there is absolutely no risk to being a class member and asserting a claim in a class action. A class member has no liability for attorney fees or litigation expenses.

Just out of curiosity. Who pays the attorney fees etc for the Defendants in case they win in court? Due to the class action they have had costs they would not otherwise have had.
The attorney fees are usually paid from a fund set up by the defendant.
