Current Class Action Lawsuits
Here is a list of the current class actions and mass torts being handled by Diamond and Diamond:
What is a Class Action Lawsuit?
A class action is where one person represents an entire class of people that have been affected in a lawsuit. By pursuing one claim instead of multiple claims, class actions can be more cost effective for the group. This promotes access to justice for all Canadians who have been a victim. The issue with a class action is that the issues have to be quite common. If the issues are too diverse, the matter often becomes a Mass Tort. If you or a loved one may be part of a class action lawsuit call us today at 1-800-567-HURT.
Class actions are settled on mass which means the settlement binds all of the members of the class. Members of the class have the option to opt out of the class and pursue their own legal action. However, if you do not opt out, you are deemed to be part of the class.
What is a Mass Tort?
A mass tort does not have one representative plaintiff, rather multiple lawsuits that are settled on an individual basis. A mass tort allows the individual to have complete control over their own case and can decide their own settlement. The common denominator is that the defendant is usually the same in all mass torts. If you or a loved one may be part of a mass tort lawsuit call us today at 1-800-567-HURT.
