A Class Action is a lawsuit in which many claimants can join together to sue a company or person in one lawsuit, rather than multiple lawsuits. In many cases, these claimants wouldn't start their own lawsuits because the amount of money they could win would be too small to justify the legal expense. While it's not usually practical for any one purchaser of a defective product to sue a large manufacturer, the total of all the damages suffered by many purchasers may be very large.
