Negligence cases are never made into class actions. You must handle your own claim and the other people have to handle theirs. However, they can all use the same attorney if they wish. It doesn't surprise me that Human Resources wouldn't get involved.

Is this the kind of case that an attorney will handle on consignment?

If you mean "contingency" which is a fee based only on a percent of the recovery, the answer is "no". The typical contingency fee is one-third. So if the damage to a vehicle is $2,100 and you have to hire an attorney you can only recover $1,400, so you won't come out with enough money to fix your car. Plus, attorneys don't want to be bothered with small cases that people can file in small claims court themselves. Cases like the one you mention are usually settled up between the companies that insure he vehicles and the company that insures the contractor who caused the damage.
