The class action legal process | Burg Simpson Law Firm

What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit is a legal proceeding where a group of people collectively bring a claim to court. These individuals, known as class members, have suffered similar harm or injuries, often at the hands of large corporations and entities that might otherwise overpower a single plaintiff. Through class actions, groups of individuals can pool their resources and confront powerful defendants on equal footing.

More than providing justice for individual victims, class actions can drive significant societal change. By holding companies accountable for widespread harm or illegal practices, these lawsuits can lead to safer products, fairer business practices, and more responsible environmental stewardship. They serve as a powerful tool in correcting corporate wrongdoing, enforcing consumer rights, and enhancing public safety.

While important for victims and society, these lawsuits are not easy to win. Choosing a reputable law firm is essential when moving forward with a claim. The Colorado class action lawyers at Burg Simpson Law Firm have a proud history of securing legal victories against negligent corporations. We are here to listen to your story, discuss your options, and help you determine the best way to move forward with your claim.

Types of Class Action Claims

Burg Simpson’s team of Denver class action attorneys possesses extensive experience in a wide range of class action claims. We pride ourselves on our ability to handle complex and varied cases, ensuring comprehensive legal representation for all of our clients.

Class action claims we handle include:

Dating App Negligence

Dating apps match prospective partners based on various criteria but often fail to protect their users from criminals. Tragically, even after multiple reports of sexual assault against specific users, some dating apps have failed to take meaningful steps to address the issue. This type of negligence leaves victims without recourse and fails to protect future victims from harm.

Our Colorado class action lawyers are actively representing several women in a case against a Denver cardiologist accused of using dating apps like Tinder and Hinge to meet—and subsequently drug and sexually assault—his victims.

Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Trade Practices

In Colorado, unfair or deceptive trade practices are illegal (see Colorado Revised Statutes § 6-1-105). There are also federal laws that prevent deceptive and unfair business practices, which keep companies from using false advertising, bait and switch marketing tactics, charging for services not provided, inadequate disclosures, misrepresenting the nature of the business, and more. Victims of these practices are often entitled to take action as a class.

Breach of Warranty

A warranty for a product you purchase is a promise about the quality of that item. When purchasing some products, such as cars, the sales contract may include certain warranties. For example, the sales contract may provide that the parts of the car are guaranteed to last a certain period and if they do not, they will be replaced by the seller or manufacturer. When these warranties are not honored, victims may have the option of class action.

Other warranties are implied, not expressly written or spoken. These, too, can be breached, entitling victims to seek justice through a class action lawsuit.

Product Liability and Defective Products

Products that cause harm due to design flaws, manufacturing defects, or inadequate warnings can injure multiple people. These may include anything from defective medical devices and pharmaceuticals to faulty consumer electronics and automobiles. When a defective or dangerous product injures multiple people, victims may be able to file a class action lawsuit to streamline the litigation process.

Data Breach and Privacy Violations

Hackers are always on the prowl, trying to steal everything from your passwords to your Social Security number. Corporations know this, and if they are going to collect your private information, they must keep it secure. When a company fails to secure your data and it becomes compromised by hackers, you can hold the business accountable.

Colorado has robust consumer protection laws, but protections only work when companies act responsibly. When they fail to do so and several people suffer, a class action lawsuit can help bring both individual justice and systemic changes that protect others from future harm.

Other Types of Class Action Lawsuits

Additional types of lawsuits our Denver class action lawyers may handle include:

  • Antitrust Violations. Practices like price-fixing, monopolistic activities, and other forms of anti-competitive conduct harm consumers and the marketplace. They are also illegal. With the expanded Colorado State Antitrust Act of 2023, victims of these practices now have additional protections and enhanced options for seeking justice through legal action, including options to take action as a class.
  • Environmental Disasters. Communities impacted by environmental disasters or pollution may have cause to file a class action lawsuit. These may revolve around toxic spills, air and water pollution, and other environmental hazards that affect large groups of people.
  • Employment Law Violations. In cases of systemic discrimination, wage theft, workplace harassment, and other injustices, employees may be able to band together as a class for collective legal action.

The Colorado class action attorneys at Burg Simpson Law Firm bring a wealth of legal knowledge and a strong commitment to justice, working to ensure our clients’ voices are heard and their rights are vigorously defended. We do not just handle cases; we advocate for change and fight to make a difference in the lives of our clients and the community.

How Do Class Action Lawsuits Work in Colorado?

Class action lawsuits in Colorado are governed by both the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 23 and the Colorado Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 23. These Rules outline the requirements for certifying a class action, including:

  • Numerosity: The class must be so large that individual lawsuits are impractical.
  • Commonality: There must be common legal or factual questions in the lawsuit.
  • Typicality: Claims or defenses of the representative parties must be typical of those of the class.
  • Adequacy: The representative parties must fairly and adequately protect the interests of the class.

If these criteria are met, the court will certify the claim, enabling a class action lawsuit to proceed.

While each case is unique, class action lawsuits in Colorado typically follow a similar process. This includes:

  • Appointment of Lead Plaintiff and Representation: The court will appoint a lead plaintiff (or plaintiffs), who represents the interests of the entire class. This individual typically has a claim that is emblematic of the class’s issues and works closely with the legal team to guide the lawsuit.
  • Notification to Class Members: Once the class is certified, potential class members are notified, usually through mail, public notices, or even digital means. This notification provides details about the nature of the lawsuit, the class definition, and the rights of the class members, including the right to opt-out.
  • Litigation and Settlement Process: The lawsuit is then litigated on behalf of the entire class. If a settlement is reached or a judgment is made, it applies to all class members, except for those who have opted out.
  • Distribution of Settlement or Judgment: In the event of a successful outcome, the court will approve a plan for distributing the settlement or judgment amount among class members.

When these claims are handled by Burg Simpson, our Colorado class action lawyers work to ensure that the rights and interests of all class members are represented and protected. We have a proven history of securing significant verdicts and settlements in class action lawsuits, and a continuing drive to fight tirelessly for the justice and compensation victims of negligent corporations deserve.

What Types of Damages Are Awarded in Class Action Lawsuits?

In class action lawsuits—similar to other civil or personal injury suits—the awarded damages are intended to compensate for losses or harm suffered due to the defendant’s actions. These damages serve to restore what was lost, deter future misconduct, and provide a sense of justice for affected individuals.

While the nature of class actions involves representing a group, the essence of seeking damages remains aligned with the principles of individual claims: addressing wrongs and providing relief to those harmed. The damages you are awarded will depend on the nature of your case, the severity of its consequences, the number of victims, and the total amount awarded by the court.

Damages awarded in class action lawsuits may include:

  • Compensatory Damages: These can include both economic damages, such as medical expenses and lost wages, along with non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress.
  • Punitive Damages: These are imposed to punish the defendant for particularly harmful or grossly negligent behavior.

The court may also order:

  • Injunctive relief to prevent future harm or enforce certain actions, and
  • Restitution, which is designed to restore victims to the position they were in before the harm occurred.

Other types of damages may also be awarded, depending on the particulars of the case. The best way to determine what types of damages you may be able to recover is through a FREE case review with one of our experienced Colorado class action lawyers.
