Class Action Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits can be a powerful tool in protecting consumers against faulty products that cause harm, and illegal practices committed by the company that cause harm. Class action lawsuits are often thought of as those that involve multiple plaintiffs taking action against a single defendant. These types of lawsuits allow plaintiffs, or those that have been harmed, to join together in order to mount a case against a large company that likely has a sizeable legal team. While most plaintiffs don’t have the funds to take on such cases, when multiple plaintiffs work together, they can often recover a substantial amount of money from the company that harmed them. At Altman & Altman, LLP, our attorneys handle plaintiffs in class action suits regularly, and understand the types of challenges that can occur in a class action lawsuit. When you have been harmed by a product produced by a large company, the idea of taking the company on in order to receive compensation can seem like a daunting task. At Altman & Altman, we understand the concerns you have, and work hard to put those concerns to rest.

Some examples of the class action lawsuits we handle include:

  • Bank Fraud: In the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the government passed a number of laws increasing the type of scrutiny that banks received in order to protect against fraud. Unfortunately, some banks still engage in fraudulent activities that can hurt those that use the bank.
  • Pharmaceutical Fraud : Taking on many forms, pharmaceutical fraud can include best price fraud, distribution of compound drugs, good manufacturing practice violations, and off label marketing, among others. Most pharmaceutical fraud cases are brought under the False Claims Act.
  • Whistleblowers Claims : Whistleblowers, or someone that informs the proper authority of some sort of illegal activity by a company, are becoming more and more common due to the protections offered to them through federal law. While many whistleblower suits involve either bank or pharmaceutical fraud, as listed above, the protection is far broader. Whistleblowers are not only protected from losing their jobs for brining a lawsuit, they are also entitled to a portion of the amount recovered, should the lawsuit be successful.

Review: Altman and Altman LLP
  • ★★★★★
    I was coming home from work traveling on 95 south at a complete stop when a Jeep Cherokee traveling 65 MPH hit me from behind. Injuries suffered were a Torn Rotator Cuff, Torn MCL, Blood Clot with Neck and Back damage. I had no idea how complex the process was. Dealing with the Insurance companies, Surgeries, PT, legal issues, doctors and bills. It was overwhelming and time consuming. David Altman stepped took care of everything every step of the way in an incredibly professional caring way. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns including weekends. In 2 years there wasn't one time where a phone call wasn't returned with in 30 minutes. David kept me positive during the most negative times. 2 years later I'm pretty close to being back where I was and David is the reason why. I was able to just focus on getting better and he took care of everything else. He was very aggressive and professional with the insurance companies in this settlement of this case. He kept me up to date on a regular basis through the whole process. I can't thank David and his staff enough and strongly recommend them to anyone.

    I am not very good at words. I was involved in a horrible accident. David and his team (Thank You Asia & Rick) are wonderful, talented and compassionate. If it were not for their help, I don’t believe the outcome would be as good as it is. I am glad my case is settled, Altman & Altman are my go to team from now on. Thank you so very much.
