Experienced Class Action Lawyers & Mass Tort Attorneys

We Are Your Trusted New York Medical Malpractice Attorneys

Most of the time, when you as a consumer experience a problem with a product or a service you have purchased, the business that provided it willingly resolves the problem. Sometimes, however, the business refuses to address the problem. There is a wide range of options in the United States for federal and state consumer protection laws that can be used to force the business to right their wrong.

In some instances, the problem that you are experiencing is one that many other consumers have had with the same product or service. Those are cases in which a consumer class action might be an option.

The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm has over 40 years of experience litigating class action and mass tort claims. Our class action attorneys will review your circumstances and will investigate the personal injury that caused you harm. If you’re part of a potential class action or mass tort claim, our class action lawyers will discuss your options with you.

What Is a Class Action Lawsuit?

A class action is a lawsuit that is brought by one or several people on behalf of everyone who has suffered the same problem with the same business. The group of people is called the “class.” The action collects all of the class members’ claims into one larger claim. If damages are awarded, the entire class shares in the award.

The advantage of a class-action suit in a consumer case is that it aggregates claims that individually may be too small to justify pursuing legal action. Bringing a single action is more efficient and cost-effective because it avoids numerous individual lawsuits that all involve the same facts and circumstances.

Consumer Class Action Claims in New York

Depending on the circumstances, class action cases are brought in either federal or state court. Federal and state laws contain numerous provisions that protect consumers from fraudulent and deceptive practices.

Examples of the kinds of business practices that can lead to consumer class action include:

  • Manufactures of inherently defective products, recalls, or unsafe products, such as drugs, supplements, medical devices, automobiles, and appliances
  • Deceptive sales practices, including false advertising and marketing and bait-and-switch tactics
  • Deceptive pricing practices, including hidden and unauthorized or illegal charges for goods and services
  • Sexual harassment
  • Abusive tactics by a business, such as those sometimes used by debt collectors, credit card companies, and financial services companies
  • Consumer Fraud such as unfair or deceptive practices and scams, like those used by some credit card or banking companies
  • Securities fraud
  • Illegal, misleading, or unfair contract provisions, such as unlawful waiver of rights or excessive liquidated damages clauses
  • Unlawful business-wide employment and workplace practices, including civil rights, and employment discrimination classification of pay practices

New Jersey and Connecticut also protect consumers through federal and state laws. Our personal injury attorney has extensive experience with a track record of over 40 years in class action settlements. Our law office will help you understand your rights regardless of where you live and where the problem occurred.

Our Clients’ Reviews


I cannot rate the firm any higher! we are extremely happy with the service we received from Brad, Chris and the team. We are northern Irish citizens and as such had no experience of the US justice system, Chris and Brad helped us navigate this and made sure we understood every step of the process and we were kept informed of what would happen with the case.

We also felt that Brad and Chris had a genuine interest in our story, what the implications for us as a family were and they were genuinely invested in how they could help our situation.

We were reassured by the manor in which Chris and Brad dealt with us and trusted that the advice we were given was always well balanced and in our best interests. We were extremely happy with the outcome the firm achieved for us and feel that we only got this outcome due to the hard work of Chris and Brad. I would not hesitate to recommend the firm to anyone who is considering a case and wants to feel as though they are really valued as a client.

Many thanks to the firm for all of their hard work on our behalf it truly is appreciated.

Let’s go to the beginning when I realize that I was going to need legal assistance because I was shocked that I was actually injured I called my fiancé and told her that I was going to need a lawyer, so she googled the top 5  personal injury law firms in NY and The Jacob Fuchsberg Law Firm came up. One of the representatives from the firm took the time to come personally to my home to see me, that immediately showed me that I was going to be able to make it through my pain and suffering they understood what I was going through and with patience, persistence, and diligence they were able to get the best results possible in settling my case. I highly recommend the Jacob Fuchsberg Law firm when the unexpected happens you will not be dissatisfied with the kind, courteous and professionalism that you would expect from a law firm.
