The power of focused representation
The lawyers of Lewis Babcock LLP are among the most experienced in South Carolina in bringing class action lawsuits. These cases involve a group or class of people who have been injured or ill-served by the same company or individual. A class action lawsuit is a significant and essential legal mechanism. It allows our attorneys to prosecute the group members’ claims efficiently and effectively as a single case, seeking compensation for the group’s overall losses through a settlement or a verdict in their favor.
This strategy, when used in carefully selected situations, almost always yields better results than can be obtained through individual lawsuits. A class action can be a more effective approach when:
- Your case involves relatively small damages and is just not worth fighting alone. By joining with others in a class action, you can get compensation for yourself and others, and also send a message that wrongdoing has a price.
- The offending company or individual has superior resources that they could use to steamroll your individual case. A class action levels the playing field by joining together small claims into a much higher-stakes case for the defendant.
Knowledge and experience make the difference
Lewis Babcock LLP attorneys have represented groups of plaintiffs harmed by various kinds of practices, including:
Our attorneys have recently collaborated with others in writing the book Lewis & Sullivan on Class Actions, which will be used as a practice manual to help other South Carolina lawyers effectively put together class actions. At Lewis Babcock LLP, we recognize the vital role class actions play in protecting victims’ rights and we are committed to continuing leadership in this important field. Our firm has obtained millions of dollars for class members in a variety of class actions.
