Consumer Class Action And Mass Torts

Consumer class action litigation is a complex and demanding practice area. A class action is a civil action involving many plaintiffs against one or a few defendants. Class action involves litigation on behalf of a group of individuals who share common injuries and damages that resulted from the same source. Some examples of a class action are customers who bought merchandise with false and misleading labels, customers who overpaid for items, or employees subjected to discrimination.

We’re available to answer your questions, listen to your concerns and guide you through the ins-and-outs of your case as you determine what to do next.

We Are Prepared

Class Action is one of the few areas of legal practice which requires a great deal of financial backing. Handling multi-plaintiff claims requires a team of numerous mass torts attorneys, paralegals, and a large support staff. Heninger Garrison Davis has the financial strength, knowledge base, and extensive resources needed to sustain lengthy and complicated mass tort claims.

How Do Class Action Lawsuits Work?

You may have received a postcard in the mail at some point, letting you know that you are part of a potential class action lawsuit. Or, perhaps you have heard about large multimillion-dollar lawsuits that forced corporations to pay heavy judgments for various types of wrongdoing, such as consumer fraud, junk fees, defective products, recalled products, car / truck defects, and so forth.

UPDATE SEPTEMBER 2019:

On September 12, counsel for all parties attended the hearing with Judge Marks.  Judge Marks informed the parties that she was reviewing the pending motions, including Plaintiffs’ motion for class certification and Allstate’s motion for summary judgment.  She disposed of several ancillary motions and indicated that she has placed our case in her queue and will expeditiously review and resolve the class certification and summary judgment motions.  At this time, we have no expectation as to when the motions will be heard or resolved.

UPDATE MARCH 2019:

At this time there is no additional information to share.  The update from September 18, 2018 remains the most current.  Accepting clients.

According to our investigation, in July of 2013, Allstate Insurance Company notified many of its retirees that it would cease paying for retiree life insurance benefits, effective January 1, 2016. The retirees trusted Allstate to follow through on its promise of lifetime life insurance benefits, they relied on that promise, and they have planned their retirement accordingly.

Most notably, many retirees chose not to purchase their own fixed-cost life insurance at a younger age when such insurance was more reasonably priced. These retirees cannot find life insurance today at reasonable rates and may be forced out of their coverage as a result.

If you have received such a notification, or Allstate has stopped paying your retiree life insurance benefits, and would like a free evaluation of your legal options, then please contact Taylor Bartlett at 205-301-6115 or 1-800-241-9779.

On November 18, 2015, our team of Daily Fantasy Sports lawyers filed a federal lawsuit against daily fantasy sports websites DraftKings and FanDuel seeking the money lost by our clients. In many states, including Alabama, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee, gambling debts are unenforceable and a person can file a private civil lawsuit to recover any losses sustained through gambling that is not done through a state approved lottery. Anyone who has lost money to either DraftKings or FanDuel could get their money back if gambling is illegal in their state.
