What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?

class action is a type of court proceeding that allows a large group of people who have suffered similar injuries to pursue their claims within a single lawsuit. The court will only certify a class action if it meets certain requirements:

  • The group of plaintiffs is large enough that it would be impractical for them to each file a lawsuit against the same responsible party.
  • Each injured person has a similar or identical claim against the same responsible party.
  • The lead plaintiff in the class action has a claim that is typically representative of the other plaintiffs in the class.

How Do Class Actions Work?

In a class action lawsuit, one injured person is chosen to be named as the plaintiff in the lawsuit and sues one or more defendants, on behalf of the group, which is referred to as a class. This is different than a traditional lawsuit in which one party sues another, and all parties are present in court.

What Are the Advantages of a Class Action?

Class actions are common in situations where a large number of people have been injured by a single defendant in the same way. It allows for the claims of all class members to be resolved in a single proceeding. This is an alternative to each injured person bringing his or her own individual lawsuit, which may not be practical or feasible. 

Alternatives to a Class Action in Mississippi

As class actions are not allowed in Mississippi state courts, injured people have other possible options to recover compensation. These may include:

  • Filing an individual lawsuit against the company in a Mississippi state court.
  • Filing a class action lawsuit in federal court or in another state’s court.
  • Joining a class action lawsuit that has been certified in another state.
