Class Actions

Southern Illinois and Missouri Class Action Lawyers

The most common class action lawsuits in Illinois are those involving business and consumer fraud. However, a class action can be about any damage claim that affects a large number of people, from defective drugs and medical devices to wage and hour claims.

At the law firm of Weilmuenster & Keck, P.C. in Belleville, Illinois, our lawyers have successfully handled a number of class action lawsuits, including:

  • A multimillion settlement against food service companies on behalf of all school districts in Illinois
  • A multimillion settlement against an insurance company on behalf of current and former agents
  • A multimillion settlement against a nationally known plumbing company for using unlicensed plumbers to perform plumbing repair work

In a class action lawsuit, the amount of damages typically is not large enough to make an individual lawsuit worth pursuing. The class action combines the claims of many individuals who have been similarly affected into one case that is worth pursuing. Class action lawsuits serve as a legal check against companies that would willingly commit fraud or other wrongful acts to increase their profits.

Illinois' Consumer Fraud Act makes the state a favorable venue for class actions involving deceptive trade practices such as predatory lending, fraudulent lending, unfair trade practices, mortgage fraud and insurance fraud.
