Chicago Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin
Class action lawsuits allow citizens to get justice when fighting against a large or powerful corporation. A class action lawsuit is where a person sues a group of people or a group of people sue another group of people. There can be multiple plaintiffs who are brought together in a common lawsuit, such as a product liability, mass torts or a consumer protection suit to name a few.
Class action lawsuits allow people to stand up for themselves against a large company that can hire attorneys who can drag out a case for a long time. This can be very costly for the plaintiffs. A class action lawsuit, however, allows the plaintiffs to hire RB Law to work their class action case on contingency which costs them nothing during the proceedings.
