Auto Defect Class Action Lawsuits

Los Angeles Attorneys Serving Clients throughout Southern California

A class action lawsuit is different from a typical lawsuit in that a large number of plaintiffs bring a suit against a defendant or defendants based on a common set of facts shared by the plaintiffs. For example, hundreds of people who have suffered because of a defective auto part, like an airbag, may sue that manufacturer as a plaintiff class rather than file hundreds of individual lawsuits. The Los Angeles attorneys at The Law Office of Robert Starr, APC have extensive experience in class action lawsuits, and we may be able to help you.

Call (800) 561-8627 now or contact The Law Office of Robert Starr online to schedule a free consultation about your auto defect class action lawsuit.

Protecting Your Rights to Compensation

When many people are affected by the same manufacturing defect, filing individual lawsuits becomes impractical. A class action lawsuit allows you to bring a larger complaint against a manufacturer and receive settlements at once. The Law Office of Robert Starr, APC has taken on some of the world's largest automobile manufacturers—including BMW and Nissan—and recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for our clients.

We handle class action lawsuits involving problems such as:

  • Airbag recall: Airbags save lives. When they don’t work properly, the consequences can be devastating. Our firm can help you identify if your car’s airbags could be considered for class action litigation.
  • BMW water damage and defects: For BMW 5 Series owners, drainage problems left some models with serious electrical problems that are costly to resolve. Our firm can help you determine if proceeding with a class action lawsuit is in your best interest.
  • CVT: Continuously Variable Transmissions, a variation of regular automatic transmissions, have shown unique problems that are costly to fix. We can help you obtain what you need to get your car fixed or repurchased so you can buy a different one.

California Class Action Lawsuits

In order to avoid flooding courts with hundreds or thousands of individual lawsuits against the same defendant, class action claims are heard in one case with one attorney or a group of class action attorneys representing the entire class of plaintiffs.

In California, in order to qualify as a class, there must be:

  • Common questions of law or fact that are shared among the class
  • Shared claims or defenses with representatives who present the same factual and legal issues as the class
  • Class representatives who can adequately represent the class

The same standards as individual lawsuits apply here. Defendants must be found liable for causing injury to the plaintiffs. The main difference involves the procedures used to litigate the case. Class actions are complicated legal matters that require experienced counsel.

The Los Angeles attorneys at The Law Office of Robert Starr, APC have served as lead counsel on a number of notable class action cases. If you believe that you may have a class action lawsuit, we are here to protect your rights.
