A class action lawsuit is brought by one or more individuals on behalf of all victims who have suffered similar injuries caused by the same defendant. The group of victims is commonly referred to as the “class.” This type of lawsuit amasses all of the class members’ claims into one big case. Class actions are designed to compensate a large number of victims, and the award is allocated to the whole class. In consumer cases, class actions can combine claims that may otherwise be too small to rationalize bringing legal action. Pursuing a single class action is more economical and efficient because it prevents numerous individual lawsuits, all involving similar circumstances, details, and facts, from being pursued separately.

Subject to the particular details of the case, class actions are filed in either State or Federal court. Both New York State and Federal laws contain various provisions that are meant to safeguard consumers from deceitful and fraudulent practices. Some instances of dishonest company practices that can give rise to consumer class actions include:
- Manufactures of inherently substandard and unsafe products;
- Misleading sales practices, dishonest marketing, and false advertising;
- Deceptive pricing systems;
- Consumer fraud, including scams and misleading or unfair practices;
- Improper company-wide workplace and employment practices, such as employment discrimination or civil rights violations; and
- Unlawful, deceptive, or unreasonable contract provisions, including excessive liquidated damages and unlawful waiver of rights clauses.
The facts of every case are different. The best way to determine if you have a class action claim is to consult with a highly experienced Buffalo, New York personal injury attorney.

While the exact requirements for certification as a class are subject to the particular rules of procedure effective in the jurisdiction, even just one victim may be able to bring a class action on behalf of the whole class. Class certification in federal court is governed by Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Under Rule 23, to proceed as a class action, the class is required to meet the following conditions:
- Commonality: The issues of law and facts of the cases in each of the class member’s claims should be fundamentally comparable. A group of consumers who all suffered similar injuries from a dangerous medication would be able to fulfill this requirement.
- Numerosity: The number of injured victims should be comprehensive enough that it would be unreasonable for everyone to be directly involved in the lawsuit as named plaintiffs. Although no clear rules dictate how large a proposed class has to be, the class size generally depends on the nature of the cases. Under the appropriate conditions, classes as small as 25 have been certified.
- Typicality: The named plaintiffs who are representing the lawsuit on the class’s behalf are required to have individual claims that are fairly typical of the whole class.
- Capability: The court must be completely satisfied that named plaintiffs and their attorneys are equipped to competently and diligently litigate the lawsuit on behalf of the whole class.
