Main Street Law Firm handles a number of cases under the umbrella of “mass tort litigation.” We believe that we can help individuals by advocating against large companies, manufacturers and conglomerates that have little regard for the effect their products have on consumers. Even though our firm is not involved in the matters listed below, we still want to keep you informed about some class action lawsuits that may benefit you. If you are wondering what the difference is between class actions and mass torts, click here to read our blog post about it.

What is a class action lawsuit?

A class action lawsuit is a lawsuit filed by one or more plaintiffs on behalf of others who have a similar legal claim. Because they allow people to join together as a group in a single lawsuit against one or more defendants, class action lawsuits provide an economical and efficient method to recover monetary damages caused by others' wrongdoing. Class action lawsuits also encourage more responsible behavior on the part of corporate defendants.

Now let’s get to the important part, some current class actions from which you may be eligible to receive compensation:

1. Optical Disk Drive Settlement
