The Power Of Class Action Litigation
Donner Applewhite files class action lawsuits on behalf of clients throughout Missouri. The firm’s attorneys Steve Donner and Tom Applewhite use the power of class actions to bring justice to individuals and businesses that have been wronged by a business or employer.
Unscrupulous businesses rarely cause harm to just one consumer, employer or even another business. Class action litigation allows multiple people who have suffered the same type of harm at the hands of a defendant to pursue compensation as a group. This helps level the playing field against the deep pockets of most large companies doing business in Missouri.
Donner Applewhite does class action work in the following areas of law:
- Consumer law, especially related to the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act (MMPA), Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and Telephone Consumer Protection Act
- Employment discrimination and other employment law issues
- Business law
- Personal injury law, particularly products liability cases involving dangerous or defective products
Class action is a specialized area of law that requires highly detailed and technical legal representation. Donner Applewhite works within the class action system to deliver needed compensation to people affected by fraud and illegal employment practices. When corporations mislead the public in their advertising or otherwise break the law, the attorneys of Donner Applewhite are here to provide a measure of justice to those who have been harmed.
Class Action Litigation Is Affordable
Donner Applewhite takes class action lawsuits solely on a contingency fee basis. This means that there is no upfront cost as the attorneys’ fees are paid by the defendants in a class action verdict or settlement. This reduces the risk to plaintiffs and makes it easier to pursue a rightful claim.
