They're Out There: How To Find Eligible Plaintiffs For Your Class Action Lawsuit

Posted on

If you're a personal injury attorney, you know that people get injured by defective products every day. But, manufacturers aren't always willing to acknowledge the problem, especially when they're still making money from the defective product. Even when they're faced with personal injury lawsuits, these manufacturers usually stand firm. That is until they're faced with class action lawsuits. Class action lawsuits allow a large group of people to sue one specific entity. It's the class action suits that usually get the attention of the manufacturers. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to find plaintiffs for class action suits. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to find plaintiffs for your class action suit. Here are four steps to help you find eligible plaintiffs for your class action lawsuit. 

Create a Website

If you're trying to put together a class action lawsuit, and you need to find plaintiffs for your case, the first thing you need to do is create a website. Potential clients will need a one-stop spot to find information regarding the lawsuit. This website should provide details about the class action suit, as well as information on how to determine eligibility for inclusion in the lawsuit. This website will be your main source of information during the initial stages of your class action suit. 

Get Active on Social Media

If you want to jump-start interest in your class action suit, you need to get active on social media. The right social media presence will help you to drive traffic over to your website. One of the great things about social media is that it only takes one person to turn your social media campaign into a viral presence. As part of your social media presence, you'll want to include a public forum for potential plaintiffs to join. These social media forums are an excellent way to identify eligible plaintiffs for your class action suit. 

Expand Your Advertising Campaign

Once you have your website running, and you're active on social media, you'll need to expand your advertising campaign. If you're looking for a large plaintiff pool, you want to reach as many potential plaintiffs as possible. The best way to do that is by taking a multi-avenue approach to your advertising. One way to do that is through media streams, such as radio, television, and print ads. 

Utilize a Class Action Plaintiff Finder

Finally, if you want to improve your chances of locating eligible plaintiffs for your class action suit, utilize the services of a class action plaintiff finder. These services will take the work out of finding plaintiffs for your class action suit. In fact, every plaintiff they locate will be carefully vetted for eligibility, which will increase your chances for a successful class action lawsuit. To get started, reach out to a local class action plaintiff finder.
