Class Actions: Combining Many Small Claims

When a big business defrauds a consumer, the consumer does not usually lose enough to take legal action – even if the consumer could afford to hire a lawyer and go through a long, expensive legal battle. However, when many consumers are victimized by fraud in the same way, they can be part of a class action lawsuit that represents all the consumers. These types of actions can not only provide compensation to those victimized by the fraudulent conduct, but also stop the conduct itself and deter that business and others from acting in a similar manner in the future.ned.

Class Action Lawsuit Attorneys

At Gray, Ritter & Graham in St. Louis, our lawyers have the experience and resources to pursue class action lawsuits against major corporations. Class actions are an important tool for making sure consumers are treated fairly. Using the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act and other laws, our trial attorneys are known for their ability to handle class action lawsuits. Below are examples of our representation in class action litigation.

  • A major Internet provider promised to deliver certain Internet speeds to consumers. When the company could not deliver the promised speed to all consumers, it capped the speed below the promised speed. No one consumer could take on a big company in a consumer fraud case, but our law firm was able to get the case certified as a class action.
  • A mobile phone system charged customers a 1.5% fee for late payments. Then the company decided it would increase that to a $5 minimum charge for a late payment, but did not change the contracts. That breach of contract case was certified as a class action.
  • Gray, Ritter & Graham, P.C. achieved a settlement in a class action lawsuit against the makers of a prescription pain reliever used for the treatment of certain arthritis conditions. The lawsuit sought more than $220 million in damages for all Missouri residents who purchased the drug.
