Class actions are typically filed when the amount of money in dispute for a single plaintiff would not justify the expense of litigating the case, but where the amount of damages of the entire class of plaintiffs would justify the cost of litigation. Basically, it’s more cost-effective to get justice for many at once instead of individually, saving everyone massive amounts of time and effort.
