That was pretty good to hear, really got a nice letter in the mailbox recently from a group who are seeking a lawsuit against Straight Talk for pulling this garbage. Straight Talk did not go over to the opposite extreme, because most consumers raised hell about their tactics. This lawsuit is probably going to be more about violations of consumer rights than it is about straight talk being wrong.
Lawsuit Against Straight Talk
In any class or settlement lawsuit, if the class action is an option, each plaintiff will be assigned an attorney who represents only that person or class. Class actions are intended to allow multiple plaintiffs to join together to pursue a common cause, thus protecting them collectively against fraud and other abuses by those who would defraud the public. In a normal lawsuit, attorneys must separately seek representation for each plaintiff on the same lawsuit, which can make the process quite lengthy and confusing. Plaintiffs often lack patience, have existing legal issues or are simply unwilling to spend additional time and money on the lawsuit. For these reasons, class action lawsuits are often a better choice.
As a straight talk fan myself, I have attended many legal proceedings where a class action lawsuit has been claimed against a particular product.
One company in particular has put many innocent victims on the stand as they attempt to sue over their claims of having been scammed. The defendants in these lawsuits often deny wrongdoing, try to avoid trials, etc. In one case, the defendant’s lawyer actually said that the claim was “frivolous and worthless.” Needless to say, the lawsuit was eventually thrown out and the plaintiff lost her lawsuit against the company.
There have also been many instances where plaintiffs have won a lawsuit against straight talk because they were able to prove that the company was liable for its conduct.
The issue with these lawsuits is often that defendants deny that there was any wrong doing. Thus, the plaintiff is forced to relive the evidence of the company’s misconduct at trial, often waiting years before obtaining a verdict.
There have been other instances in which plaintiffs have won class action lawsuits against straight talk.
Unfortunately, these cases have been few and far between. In some of these situations, the defendant’s counsel was ineffective. They failed to adequately train their attorneys so that they could adequately defend their client. Sometimes the attorneys failed to establish or maintain adequate discovery, or otherwise failed to obtain and preserve crucial evidence that might prove damaging to their client.
Such cases are not isolated. Anecdotal evidence suggests that attorneys often have a difficult time defending their client’s claims. This is perhaps the main reason why class action lawsuits are preferable to lawsuits against straight talk companies. If you have sustained an injury due to the carelessness of another person, you may want to consider a lawsuit against the individual who caused your injury. If you have sustained injuries as a result of that carelessness, you may also want to pursue a lawsuit against the entity responsible for your injuries. These are particularly appropriate in situations where there is a likelihood of significant personal injury as a result of the recklessness of another person.
There are many reasons why it may be more efficient and advantageous to file a lawsuit against straight talk than another individual.
First, you may want to retain counsel to help guide you through the litigation process. Second, if you have sustained an injury because of the carelessness of another person, you may be entitled to recover damages from that person. Third, it may be more helpful for you to pursue a lawsuit against the entity than against someone else who has provided services that caused the injuries.
It should be clear to see that a lawsuit against straight talk companies can be an appropriate means of protecting yourself. However, it is also important to bear in mind that the expense of filing a lawsuit against these organizations can be quite expensive. You may not necessarily be able to afford to hire a personal injury attorney to represent you. Therefore, it may be advisable for you to seek representation from an attorney that can provide you with a free consultation. If the representation provided results in you successfully obtaining monetary compensation for your injuries, you may want to consider pursuing a lawsuit against straight talk in the area of negligence.
