Unlocking Justice: The Power of Class Action Lawsuits in Georgia

In the world of legal battles, class action lawsuits stand out as a potent tool for justice. As lawyers in the state of Georgia, Lober and Dobson, LLC, understand the intricate nuances of Georgia law and champion the benefits that class action lawsuits can bring to the forefront. Let’s take a look at the advantages of pursuing a class action lawsuit while highlighting the expertise of our Georgia lawyers in handling complex cases ranging from insurance disputes to securities fraud to environmental harm.

The Dual Goals of Class Action Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits are a legal mechanism that serves two pivotal goals. First and foremost, they provide an invaluable avenue for prosecuting the claims of numerous consumers whose collective damages might be substantial, yet individually might not warrant the expense of pursuing individual lawsuits. This unified approach allows individuals with similar grievances to pool their resources, presenting a formidable front against the companies or organizations that may have wronged them.

At Lober and Dobson, LLC, we recognize that our clients may have suffered financial losses due to various reasons, ranging from insurance company overcharges to deceptive billing for unwanted insurance coverages. Our seasoned team of Georgia lawyers is adept at navigating the complex landscape of class action litigation, ensuring that the voices of those wronged are not drowned out by legal complexities.

Legal Expertise in Complex Cases

Our firm takes pride in its extensive experience in handling a diverse array of complex cases, each requiring a unique set of skills and knowledge. Here are some key areas where our Georgia lawyers excel:

Insurance Company Practices: Unscrupulous practices, such as overcharging or deceptively billing for unwanted insurance coverages, can wreak havoc on consumers. Our legal team has a proven track record of holding insurance companies accountable for such practices.

Banking Wrongs: Banks unlawfully charging above-market rates for Forced Place Insurance is a violation that demands swift and decisive action. Lober and Dobson, LLC, possesses the expertise to challenge such practices and seek restitution for affected individuals.

Utilities, Phone Companies & EMC Overcharges: Overcharges by utilities, phone companies, and EMCs can often go unnoticed by individual consumers. Through class action lawsuits, our firm aims to address these grievances collectively, ensuring that justice is served for all affected parties.

Securities Fraud: When purchasers of a company’s stock or securities suffer due to fraudulent representations about products, business prospects, or financial and regulatory filings, our lawyers in Georgia step in. We understand the complexities of securities fraud cases and strive to secure the rightful compensation for our clients.

Toxic Exposure: Illegal dumping of chemicals leading to toxic exposure is a severe offense. Our firm is committed to representing those harmed by environmental negligence, advocating for compensation and accountability.

Lober and Dobson’s Impactful Class Action Cases

Our commitment to justice is not just rhetoric but is evident in the impactful class action cases we’ve successfully handled.

We initiated a national class action against Met Life, accusing them of improperly placing life insurance proceeds into retained asset accounts. Following several years of legal proceedings, a settlement was reached for $80 million. Additionally, we successfully resolved individual claims against Jackson National Life and New York Life for mishandling retained assets, with settlement amounts remaining confidential. Notably, New York Life adjusted its business practices in response to our legal action.

In another legal pursuit, we filed a Georgia state law class action against Beneficial Life Insurance for adding improper forced-placed insurance to consumer loans. The Georgia Court of Appeal upheld the trial judge’s class certification, leading to a $7 million settlement at mediation.

Furthermore, we undertook various class actions against those engaging in junk fax practices, securing settlements ranging from $250,000 to $900,000. All defendants agreed to modify their advertising practices to align with the Telephone Consumer Protection Act. We also settled numerous individual junk fax cases, recovering substantial amounts for our business clients.

An action against Liberty Savings Bank was initiated for force-placing insurance on consumer auto loans in violation of Regulation Z of the Truth in Lending Act, resulting in an excess of $750,000 for our Georgia-only class.

Cash Advance faced legal action from our Georgia lawyers for allegedly charging excessive and illegal fees. After the trial judge denied the Defendant’s Motion for Summary Judgment, Cash Advance closed all its Georgia locations and paid damages totaling $250,000.

We sued Green Finance in a state court class action for unlawfully adding “motor club” charges to small consumer loans, even if the borrower did not own a car. The class’s value exceeded $1 million.

Finally, CVS Pharmacy was taken to court for overcharging law firms and others requesting prescription records in violation of Georgia’s medical records statute. Our class action sought to stop the overcharging and claim damages, resulting in a settlement with a value exceeding $1 million for the class.
