Class action rebates are collective cases filed by claimants. It’s mostly done by people trying to claim compensation for a small item with a very little amount. People mostly file this case for defective products that doesn’t live up to its claim or promise. Any person in the US can file this claim and there is no limit to how many a single person can file.
Say for example, you bought a no-spill mug that is on sale for less than a buck. It claims a new patent technology will not allow any spillage regardless on whatever it is that you put on your mug and on any surface. You saw some reviews online and it worked great. On the same date that you tried it, you accidentally bumped on your spill proof mug, creating a domino effect on all your work papers as well as your laptop! Great, isn’t it?
Here’s the turning point: spilling coffee is sometimes common but for a non-spilling mug is uncommon, so it means that company that made the product failed on its claims. Remember, because of that spill, you have to do your work all over again. In this regard, because the item was very cheap, most people will just find it quits and will just throw the so-called spill-proof mug out the window and get on with their lives, because there is no point filing a lawsuit on a defective item that is less than a buck. An attorney’s fee costs more than that!
Getting back: But you see, there is a way to get back and it’s thru a class action. One might not be enough, but if you can find people that have the same experience as you, it can be something valid for a lawsuit, because now in a collective effort you now have this substantial claim and an attorney’s fee won’t be a problem anymore.
The facts when filing a class action case: The fact is that anyone in the United States can file a class action, if you are in a different country and a non-US citizen you might want to either file one if there is such a law in your country. Furthermore, if a claim is ordered by the court because the court found that your claim is substantial and valid in nature, you will receive your claim, but the amount will be determined by the court.
Class action cases are these cases that people that share the same problem over a product can claim. This is usually due to a defective product that is very cheap and if only one would claim wouldn’t make any sense. Because of the fees that will incur during a proceeding is higher that what that person paid for the item. But if many people bond together to file this case, money won’t be a problem and a case can be pushed thru. Not just to get a claim but also to the general public, not to have the same experience as the claimants have.
