The Judge will identify the class and notify them. This will occur via letter, email, phone or media or via the Internet.
If you don’t receive notification by any of these forms but still believe that you might be eligible to join the class action, don’t despair – eventual compensation will be offered to all people affected unless they are formally ruled out by the court.
Class membership is automatic in all but a very few cases. Everyone affected by the action or product complained of will be part of the case unless they choose to opt out. One member of the class will be chosen as the lead plaintiff, whose circumstances are used by the lawyers involved to prove up their case and get the court to award damages and compensation.
The eventual compensation awarded is subject to deduction from the class counsel, the law firm representing the lead plaintiff and the rest of the class. Once these deductions are made the rest of the proceeds are divided evenly between those eligible.
In some cases the court can rule that the settlement be extended to affected persons outside the class of plaintiffs. It’s by no means guaranteed and to be assured of receive settlement proceeds it is best to stay vigilant and ensure you sign up to join the relevant class action at the earliest stage possible.
