Consumer class action lawsuits encompass a variety of issues including product liability, fraud, false advertising, and privacy rights. These cases can be derived from the impact of defective or incorrectly handled products that have caused injury to individuals due to design defects, faulty labeling, or manufacturing flaws. Pending the circumstances of the case, the responsibility falls on the designer, manufacturer, distributor, or retailer to ensure that the product does not cause harm. Party’s that collect and use consumer’s personal information breaching the protection of the individual’s privacy rights or companies that use false or misleading statements to influence the consumer into a transaction should be held accountable and brought to justice. The responsible parties can be held liable for damages in multiple markets and regions many times warranting a class action lawsuit.
