When the average person hears the term class action they believe that someone is going to be held responsible for  something and that a big group has more clout than a small group.  A lot of people were injured and someone has to be made to pay and a class action provides the fastest and fairest way to make this happen.  Right?  This is a good theory that seldom works out in the manner we hope it will.

While Class Action lawsuits offer some benefits like efficiency, compensation for everyone involved and security in numbers there are also significant downsides.  When a group has problems it is expected that some are worse than others.  How do your issues stack up against the rest?  Will the person with minimal issues receive identical compensation for their injuries as you who may be more injured?  If the group judgment is large will there be funds to pay the judgment?  Class actions benefit people whose injuries are similar in nature such as a victim of a monetary fraud.
