What is the difference between a class action lawsuit and a personal injury lawsuit?
There are several different ways in which a person injured by a negligent party can legally pursue compensation. A class action lawsuit occurs when a group of people takes action against the same company for the same source of injury, typically a defective product. The compensation awarded by the judge or jury is then divided among the group. This is different from standard personal injury lawsuits in which one plaintiff files a case against a defendant. Thus, all compensation awarded goes to the plaintiff.
