Class-Action Lawyers in New Orleans
The New Orleans class-action law firm of Irpino, Avin & Hawkins is committed to upholding the rights of consumers. When people are harmed — physically, financially or in some other manner — due to the negligence of a large corporation, that corporation must be held accountable. We have the resources and knowledge necessary to do just that.
How a Class-Action Lawsuit Typically Works
A class action lawsuit takes place when one or more people bring a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group. The plaintiffs filing suit are doing so on behalf of all others who have similar claims. The purpose of this type of legal action is to combine all claims into one lawsuit in order to find a remedy for all the people who comprise the larger group, known as the “class members.”
Our class-action lawyers in New Orleans will typically file the lawsuit on behalf of the plaintiffs and then work to get the case certified as a class action. We then notify the members of the class and give them the option to either opt in or opt out of the case. If someone opts out, he or she will not gain any benefits should the plaintiffs win the case. If someone opts in, he or she will be bound by whatever settlement or judgment may be achieved.
Most class actions are settled before they get to the trial stage. Once a settlement is negotiated, the agreement is then presented to the court for approval. If approval is granted or the plaintiffs win a judgment in court, the class members will be notified as to how they can make a claim. Clients are typically not responsible for litigation costs or attorneys’ fees. Our New Orleans class-action law firm will ask the court to demand that those costs are paid by the defendant.
