A class action lawsuit requires a group of plaintiffs to have a common injury against a common defendant. The idea is that the group is so large that to pursue individual cases would be overly burdensome on the legal system.
Each lawsuit has the named plaintiff and they receive more compensation than the general group.One first needs to locate a class action attorney. This can be done through the county bar association. Then if the attorney is interested they will typically advertise to determine if there are sufficient prospective plaintiffs to result in certification so the class action may proceed.
