Hertz: False Arrests
If you don’t return a rental car on time, it’s late. But at some point, it stops being late and becomes a stolen car. But while Hertz is apparently good at reporting cars as stolen, it isn’t so good at reporting cars as un-stolen. Sometimes the car later gets returned and then the next renter gets arrested for driving a car that had been reported stolen.
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.
