Before You File
Before you file a class action lawsuit, there are a number of things that you need to do. First, you need to be able to identify all of the people in your claim who have suffered injuries. To do this, you may need to spend time seeking these individuals out, or you may choose to advertise your interest in finding these individuals using media, such as television or Internet advertising. You’ll also need to gather documentation to support your claim that you and others have been injured, and you’ll need to be able to identify the party responsible for the injuries.
Hire a Lawyer
While you can file a class action lawsuit on your own, the process of doing so can be long, complicated and expensive. Instead, most people feel that partnering with an attorney, such as Eric J. Hertz, is a better way to approach the situation. Working with Eric J. Hertz and the legal team at the Hertz Law Firm offers a variety of advantages over filing on your own, including experience and expertise in the legal field. The attorneys at the Hertz Law Firm understand exactly what needs to be done in order to file a class action lawsuit, and this will alleviate the stress and pressure you might feel if you try to file yourself.
As mentioned, you will need to gather as much documentation as possible together before filing a class action lawsuit, but you will also need to be prepared to back up that documentation before a judge and jury. Keep in mind that the person or entity you are suing will likely have an attorney or attorneys on their side, and these attorneys will be tasked with proving your claim as false. As a result, you will need to be prepared to be questioned if called to testify, and you’ll need to have your facts straight. Eric Hertz and his team can help you with this by ensuring that all of the necessary documentation for your case has been gathered and reviewed.
Individuals interested in participating in a class action lawsuit are urged not to wait too long to file. Various statutes of limitation may apply to your specific case, and depending upon who you are suing, there may be other regulations regarding time limits.
