Class Action

At Nagel Rice, we are proud of our track record in class action lawsuits, having won some of the largest in New York and New Jersey history. We have the experience to take on large corporations when their negligence and/or greed has led to serious harm to the public. We have the special talents and strategies needed to pursue class action cases. Our successful advocacy has recovered damages for thousands of innocent victims of:

  • Deceptive advertising
  • Credit card fraud
  • Breached warranty
  • Illegally high interest or membership rates
  • Inadequate healthcare insurance reimbursements
  • Brokerage misconduct (e.g. investment manipulations) 
  • Automotive defects, unreported or unrepaired
  • Pharmaceutical/medical device defects

In filing a class action lawsuit, an individual or small group of plaintiffs represents a large group (even a multitude) of others who have suffered similar personal injuries. In this way, class actions make it possible to hold corporate defendants liable for the great harm they have done. By filing a class action suit, we provide our clients with a pathway to recovering the compensation they deserve in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
