We have previously covered Verizon’s unlimited data plan, and how it compares to the rest of the industry. Now we will take a look at Verizon Wireless’ class action lawsuit clause. What is a class action lawsuit, you ask? Essentially, when a lawsuit is filed, and people sue other people (classes) for injuries they have sustained as the result of another person’s negligence, then everyone who was a part of the negligence lawsuit is included. So if you were in a car accident caused by the negligence of the driver, you can sue that driver and gain damages on top of the purchase (you may be able to recover vehicle expenses and loss of income, but this depends on the court’s rules).
You may be thinking to yourself, Verizon Wireless already has a class action lawsuit-proof program. And indeed, Verizon Wireless has long had class action litigation policies. In fact, Verizon has been aggressively marketing their class action lawsuit protection plan for years. However, they still seem to have some catching up to do. This article will briefly review Verizon Wireless’ existing class action lawsuit policies, and why class action lawsuits are a good way to go about Verizon’s efforts to protect its customer’s rights.
Under Verizon Wireless’ policy, once you sign up with Verizon Wireless, you automatically become a member of the Verizon Wireless Group. This group consists of all the customers and users of Verizon’s service who have either signed up or have proof of agreements with Verizon Wireless. If you belong to this group, you should receive a notification from Verizon Wireless informing you that your case has been accepted into the Verizon Wireless class action lawsuit process. If you are not part of the Verizon Wireless Group, but are a customer of Verizon Wireless, you should receive a request for information from your Verizon Wireless agent, or from their Customer Service desk regarding your case.
Once you have received a request for information from one of their representatives, it is important to gather all the necessary documents needed to file your complaint. The legal paperwork you need will depend on what type of case you are filing. For instance, if you are filing a complaint against a Verizon Wireless driver for texting messages while in a car, there is a specific case number you will need to write down. Furthermore, there is also a specific complaint form you must fill out with all the necessary personal information. All you need to do is find your case number, write it down, and then complete the necessary paperwork to file your complaint.
If you are a Verizon Wireless customer and you want to join the Verizon Wireless group, all you need to do to join is to call any of their customer service agents. You will need to provide your case number, and then ask to join the Verizon Wireless class action lawsuit process. Once you have been admitted into the program, you will be notified by phone, email, or both. Then, Verizon will schedule a court date, at which time you will have to attend in person to present your case before a judge.
If you decide to join the Verizon Wireless class action lawsuit program, it is important that you research your lawyer well. It is not enough to simply pick any attorney off the phone book – you need to make sure that they have experience in litigating Verizon Wireless lawsuits, and that they are willing to take your case before a judge. Additionally, you may want to hire an attorney who has previously worked with Verizon Wireless, so that he/she can better explain to you what you can expect during the class action lawsuit process. If you do your research and trust your lawyer, you can rest assured that you will win your lawsuit.
