Class Actions can avoid the necessity for hundreds, or thousands of people filing similar individual lawsuits to claim relief. This often means that a single person can commence a class action on behalf of hundreds or even thousands of people. Class actions promote access to justice and ensure that people with similar claims are treated similarly.
