Class Action Settlements

Claim your rebate today

Every year, millions of dollars are left on the table in unclaimed settlement funds. In some cases, this is simply because people are unaware of their rights to claim settlement money – or are confused as to what's involved in staking their claims.

At ClassAction.org, part of our mission is to break some myths about class action lawsuits and to provide insight into what actually goes into the filing – and resolution of – a lawsuit.

Class Action Settlements:
Millions Left on the Table Every Year

When a class action lawsuit settles, people who could collect part of the settlement may receive a letter in the mail or an e-mail that contains instructions on how to claim their money or refunds. In some cases, however, attorneys working on the case have no way of gathering the contact information of people who could claim part of a final settlement. In these cases, notice of the settlement may be posted in newspapers, magazines or online. In either case, there is no guarantee that everyone who could collect their portion of a settlement will come forward to claim their money.

What happens to money that’s left on the table after a settlement deadline has passed?

In some cases, it goes right back to the company that was sued.

Class action lawsuits are designed to hold companies accountable for misleading and deceiving their customers. When a case settles, the attorneys who handled the case will collect a percentage of the settlement or receive a fee award separate from the settlement. The lawyers get paid, and so should you. Don’t leave your money on the table – it could very well be returned to the defendant, leaving little encouragement for big corporations to change their ways.
