15 Years of Experience Advocating for Victims' Rights
Have you been wronged by a large company, bank, employer, or other entity? It's possible that you are not alone. Insurance companies can scam hundreds or thousands of individuals, an employer may discriminate against multiple employees, or a pharmaceutical company may manufacture a drug that injuries millions. At the Law Offices of Ryan W. Greene, we believe that class actions are often necessary when pursuing justice for ordinary citizens. We are not afraid of going up against large corporate entities and national organizations.
Give us a call today at (844) 217-2415 to speak with a compassionate US Virgin Islands class action lawsuit attorney about your legal options. We represent clients throughout St. Thomas, St. Croix, and St. John.
How Does a Class Action Lawsuit Work?
A class action lawsuit is normally filed when hundreds or even thousands of people are injured or negatively impacted by the actions of an individual or an organization. Class action lawsuits allow for one lawsuit to be filed on behalf of everyone, rather than filing a separate lawsuit for each person.
The steps for a class action lawsuit going to court require the following to occur:
- The class action must be "certified," meaning that there are enough claimants to justify filing a class action, and that there is a commonality between the claims of those who have been selected as representatives.
- A notice has been sent out to the affected parties who will be included in the class action and will be impacted by the results of the case.
If you have received a notice of being included in a class action, you will have the option to do nothing (and thereby be included in the results of the class action), or opt out, which will remove you from the lawsuit and any potential settlements that may occur. In addition, if you opt out of the class action lawsuit, you may still have the ability to file your own lawsuit if the class action is dismissed.
Types of Class Actions We Handle
A class action lawsuit is essentially a large-scale case which involves multiple individuals who have similar damages or injuries as a result of the same action or product. For example, if a certain type of laundry detergent causes burns and multiple people suffer injuries, those people can file a class action suit together to stand up for the rights of all who were affected. Individuals can often benefit from a class action suit without going through the entire process of litigation.
We handle a wide range of cases, such as:
- Defective product claims
- Consumer fraud claims
- Environmental claims
- Employment law claims
- Discrimination claims
- Mortgage fraud claims
- Auto dealer deceptive practice claims
- Auto repair shop deceptive practice claims
- Consumer protection claims
