Class Actions in Iowa
If you have a legal dispute with a company and many other people have a similar or identical claim, then a class action lawsuit may be the most effective way to resolve those disputes. In a class action, which can be filed in federal court, Iowa court or another state's court, the court hears a representative plaintiff's claim. The settlement or verdict then applies to all of the plaintiffs. Talk to a class action attorney today if you think you have a potential class action lawsuit.
How Can a Class Action Lawyer Help You?
Class action lawsuits are commonly used to resolve disputes in several areas of the law, including:
- Defective drugs
- Defective medical devices
- Other types of product liability cases
- Employment issues
- Environmental toxic torts
- Securities fraud
- False or misleading advertising
- Financial fraud
Because of the scope of class action lawsuits, as well as special court rules that apply only to class actions, not every litigation attorney has the necessary experience to handle a class action lawsuit. In fact, an attorney who represents plaintiffs in employment class actions may not ever represent plaintiffs in defective drug class actions. That specific, narrow expertise will ultimately benefit you, as the plaintiff, because your class action lawyer will have the necessary knowledge to try your case and potentially maximize the award you receive.
If you think you have grounds for a class action lawsuit, talk to a lawyer with experience representing class action plaintiffs. The attorney will ask you some detailed questions about your legal dispute. This will help the lawyer determine whether:
- Your case would qualify to be heard as a class action under the Iowa Rules of Civil Procedure
- Whether a class action lawsuit on the same issue has already been certified, or approved to proceed, in an Iowa court or other court
