New Short White Paper on Lawyers on
the Internet and Class Actions
Does the Internet help facilitate justice in America by
allowing people to join a class action lawsuit?
Some people would argue that the Internet would allow momentum
and information (regarding dangerous products) to be discovered
more quickly and companies to settle with victims of class
action lawsuits at a much faster pace. What used to take
years is now only taking months. Injured people are now
searching on the Internet for the very thing that caused
their injury. Or, people are searching and finding legal
help, specialists and attorneys or advocates much quicker.
Therefore, the dangerous actions may be stopped more quickly.
Does the Internet or Web Promoted Class Action Lawsuits
protect the public?
This is easily argued in that the public can search for
the side affects or dangers of any given product or medicine
now with relative ease from the comforts of their home.
As an example, it is fairly simple to find recall information
on the Internet. Moreover, once a reasonable amount of people
sign up for representation against a company that is selling
something potentially dangerous, then, that company may
be more careful in the distribution of the product or even
improve or modify the product so that it is safer. Example:
Warning Labels & Disclosures
Q. Will the Internet protect people from further injury
and danger from defective or unsafe products or drugs?
Probably so. If the Internet speeds up the process of companies
removing or fixing unsafe products (for example) then, less
people will result in injury. Overall, it is the people
who should be applauded for searching the Internet, making
complaints, and giving valuable feedback as to what is wrong
with the product and the potential problems and injuries
that may result from use. Companies should be thankful for
this as it may even prevent a class action lawsuit. Stockholders
should also be glad that the feedback is coming in at a
rapid pace which may prevent catastrophic losses to corporations,
insurance companies and owners.
Is it bad that law firms are advertising for class action
lawsuits on the Internet?
Some may argue it is not suitable or conservative. However,
there are many more people today who are apprised of the
dangers and their rights and who are compensated for their
injuries due to the broad use of the Internet. Thus, less
people may become a financial burden to society if they
are treated fairly by those who have injured them and the
