WHAT IS A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT?

Oftentimes it is impractical or impossible for several individuals, suffering at the hands of a single organization, to file individual lawsuits. Whether because of court costs or simply the time involved in bringing a case to suit, these individuals may join together forming a 'class'.

There are many examples of class action lawsuits. For example, a class may consist of a group of employees subjected to race discrimination. It could involve a number of patients prescribed a drug with injurious side effects. Or, include a neighborhood of residents whose homes or families are injured by a toxic spill. It may be a group of consumers who purchased a defective product that caused injuries. Or corporate investors who suffered fraud in the purchase or sale of stocks and other securities.

Class action cases involve extensive research, even more than in the typical individual lawsuit. Attorneys must work to gather evidence proving that the defendant's product or conduct harmed the entire class. In addition to the gathering of evidence for proof, attorneys of a class action lawsuit must make every effort to locate and notify each and every individual affected in the case.

Currently, McShane and Brady Law is working to find members in a class action lawsuit against Valley Hope Treatment Centers. Should you know of anyone who sought treatment at Valley Hope, contact us at 816-888-8010.
