Rules allowing free riders to jump onto a class-action suit in pursuit of damages they do not deserve clog up the legal system, making it difficult for actual deserving victims to gain compensation.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 18, 2015
In an article published September 2nd on The Hill, the author advocated for a change in the rules surrounding class-action lawsuits to prevent the lawsuits from being over-populated with claimants who have not actually been injured. According to the author, some thresholds for determining who can join class-action lawsuits are so low that many of the people who sign on as plaintiffs have not actually been wronged or harmed in any way by the entity being sued. According to Los Angeles personal injury law firm the Law Offices of Burg & Brock, rules allowing these free riders to jump onto a class-action suit in pursuit of damages they do not deserve clog up the legal system, making it difficult for actual deserving victims to gain compensation.
Cameron Yadidi Brock, the head litigator at the Law Offices of Burg and Brock, notes that these large class-actions not only give trial lawyers of all types a bad name, they also serve as a breeding ground for attorneys who simply wish to profit off clients in the easiest way possible. Mr. Brock says that some lawyers will disregard the fact that many people joining the class-action are not morally entitled to damages if it means a larger payday for the lawyer when the case is resolved. This action is also problematic because, the more clients who are entitled to a share of the class-action, the less money each actual deserving client receives when the case is resolved.
The Law Offices of Burg and Brock reminds the public that, in addition to being mindful of these cases, they should also watch out for law firms that take on the cases of individuals, but only if they can be settled easily out of court. While the idea of not going to court may be appealing to some people, opting too easily for a settlement can result in a client getting a much lower compensation package than what they could have gotten if their lawyer was willing to go to trial. Mr. Brock is proud of the firm’s insistence on doing everything they can to get their clients the best possible result, even if that means going the extra mile to convince a judge or jury of the merits of their case.
With over 90 years of collective legal experience, and over 100 million dollars secured in compensation for their clients, the Law Offices of Burg and Brock have a tremendous track record of success that they continue to back up with new victories.
