Oklahoma City Lawyers: Class Action Lawsuits
When a wrongful action injures not just an individual but an entire class of people, a class action lawsuit or mass tort claim can be filed to recover financial compensation for damages.
The attorneys of the Tawwater Law Firm have represented clients in a variety of class action claims. For example, our law firm represented a woman who paid insurance premiums for maternity benefits she was prohibited from using until one year after her date of hire. We believed it was wrong for her to be charged for coverage she could not use. We filed a class action lawsuit on behalf of her and 8,000 other women who were similarly injured.

A class action offers a cost-effective option for compensating large groups of people who have suffered damages too small to justify individual claims. In a case against Ford Motor Company, for example, the auto manufacturer used a plastic part in an engine that melted during normal use of the vehicle. The cost of replacing the part was $700 — an amount to small to justify legal action on a case-by-cases basis. However, six million people were affected by Ford's mistake.
Our law firm was also successful in a class action claim against an insurance company that improperly figured the co-payments policyholders were charged.
