GHI—part of EmblemHealth—is the largest provider of health insurance to New York City employees and retirees. We have filed a class action with the Susman Godfrey law firm alleging that GHI has deprived members of benefits worth in excess of $1 billion. As part of this case we won a major decision from New York’s highest court expanding the protections of the State’s consumer protection laws.
A class action lawsuit is a way for a group of people who have suffered similar harms to bring a single collective case and share in any potential award. You become part of a group, with far more potential power than filing a lawsuit on your own—and at no cost to you.
Filing a class action lawsuit allows us to consolidate evidence, witnesses, and litigation expenses to make the lawsuit more efficient and effective. The collective “clout” of the class is typically far more effective than an action by any individual plaintiff.
No! The attorneys work on contingency, and only get paid if the case is successful. Any fees they may be awarded are determined by the court and paid by the defendant.
