Successful CasesThe following is a list of some of the complaints that people have filed on LawyersandSettlements.com (formerly BigClassAction.com) that were successfully resolved.
General Motors. I was contacted by a law firm regarding the complaint I filed on this website. I have signed a contract with them to act as a class representative. I was informed of the risks and benefits of participating in the Class Action lawsuit as well as the expectations and projected timeline of the suit. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to participate. If it weren't for this website I would have no means to resolve the problem with GM. I had exhausted all of the resources available and known to me including the GM Customer Complaint line, Better Business Bureau and the Minnesota Attorney General's Office. Thank you so much for providing this valuable service. I have given this website to my friends.

Daimler Chrysler. I submitted a proposal for class action against Daimler Chrysler about the paint job on Dodges year 93-97. The paint on them becomes chalky and peels. I'm in a car club which is for Dodge Avengers and Chrysler Sebrings. A great number of us have had this problem with our paint jobs. We had a lawyer contact us and at least 13 of us have gotten new paint jobs from dealerships in the Chicago area. Thanks so much for helping us out.

Kia. I filed a complaint against auto car maker Kia. And I won a cash settlement thanks to LawyersandSettlements.com. It was so easy. I couldn't have done it as pain free without your assistance.

Fujitsu. A $42.5 million settlement has been reached and is pending approval in the class action lawsuit alleging that the company had sold faulty hard drives. The class includes US citizens who bought some models of Fujitsu 3.5-inch IDE hard drives. The suit also listed Gateway, HP and others as defendants. (Oct-21-03) [SETTLEMENT WEBSITE]
Fujitsu. I cannot express how impressed I am with your website. I lodged a complaint approximately 2 years ago on abnormally high hard drive failure rates. I was contacted with a weeks time and informed the lawyer further on what I had experienced as a computer technician. I had found that there were people all over the world having these same issues. I forwarded the web links to the lawyer and they found enough cause to file the case in California. In the end a settlement was reached and the hard drive company ended up paying out around $42.5 million. I am elated to see that the billion dollar companies didn't get to shaft the public again. Thanks for giving the little guy a place to lodge a complaint and actually see results. About $42.5 million worth of results!

Contact Lens Provider. I filed a class action suit against a contact lens provider which I felt I was wronged. LawyersandSettlements.com pursued this and won the case for us.

CDs. When I came across LawyersandSettlements while surfing online I was a bit unsure, but when I began to work my way through the site I was very interested. I decided to look for any type of case that also pertained to myself. I filled out multiple cases, and never bothered to follow up on the status of those claims. Six months later I got a letter in the mail containing a check for just over $10. I know that that is not very much, but when I read that it was a settlement against the CD industry for overcharging for CD's that I had purchased in the past. It may not have been much, but it was ten dollars that I did not have prior to that day. I have other close friends that also collected on various settlements, some in excess of $300. It only takes a minute to fill out the forms, and it could pay off pretty well.

CDs. LawyersandSettlements alerted me to Compact Disc Case and I was able to recover $15.00.

Rezulin. I did not even know that there was a class action against Rezulin until I saw it on your web site. I entered my dates of taking this and you folks took my notes and records and now I am going to receive 4280 dollars from this action. I am so pleased with these results. Since I am on a very limited budget due to being handicapped, this money that I did not know was out there is really going to help.
- D. Shanstrom, IA
Fen-Phen. With the help of Online Legal Services, I was able to pursue and receive a settlement for injuries sustained due to taking Fen-Phen diet pills. This was a class action lawsuit that I was able to participate in and reap from, thanks to the information posted on the Lawyers and Settlements website.

Celezene. Your website and newsletter are my favorite. We would never have known about all the injustices in the world currently going on without this fantastic site. I have forwarded your newsletter on to many of my friends and relatives who are also loyal fans of your website. I had filed a claim for celezene (pills that were advertised to rid yourself of cellulite) and received $150 settlement for the class action filing. I know this isn't a hugh settlement, but it is the principal of the matter. I am sure there will be future injustices that I will be able to file due to having the knowledge you have given me. Please keep up the good work and your awesome website. Thanks again!

Neurontin. I recently received information from a lawyer about my case against the people who make the drug Neurontin. I cannot believe the fast response I got. I got better and quicker service from you people than I ever did before if I needed a lawyer. The information you provide on your site is fantastic, there are so many class action law suits that people don't know about, and they should. I would recommend your site to anyone, before I recommended a lawyer from my past or the phone book. You people are great, and very informative. Thank You For Helping Me Out, and for informing me about Neurontin. Thank You.

Just to let you know how great this program is, I wanted to tell you about some of the class action suits I have been awarded payment on. I have received 4 different checks and 2 certificates for discounts on products, directly from your efforts. I want to thank you for providing this service as I would not have had any way of knowing about these class action suits if you had not been here. I have seen many attorneys on TV talking about different class action suits, but you have to pay a retainer up front to be involved. They are only the big ones, moneywise. With this legal service, all I had to do was give some information and I am included. Note: I still have several more out there waiting for settlement, if anyone reads this and you have had any experience with these products or services, sign up. It is the best way to do business with attorneys, (no offense) on class action suits.

Yes we received a settlement from the associates we found on your website and never would have been part of the settlement if I had not signed up on your web page and found out about it, the settlement was for around 256 dollars but it helped at a time we needed it.

Metropolitan Life. I am writing to let you know that this website has truly been a blessing to me and my family. Recently , I inquired about information regarding the Metropolitan Life class action case on behalf of my mother. We were able to get helpful information, as well as be linked to other sites with information about the case. As it turns out, my mother received 3 checks for 3 policies which were held by my deceased grandparents, and another close relative. Thank you so much for providing such a valuable and worthwhile service that really makes a difference!

PayPal A $9.25 million settlement has been reached in the class action lawsuit filed on behalf of users who opened a PayPal account between October 1999 and January 2004. The suit alleged the company was understaffed, hid its customer service phone numbers to save money, had rude and unhelpful phone staff, did not answer customer service email, and "without notice or warning, erroneously and unnecessarily" limited or closed accounts and then made it difficult to restore the accounts. (Jul-30-04)
Sprint. I was denied long distance service by Sprint based on a credit rating system. I found out from Lawyers and Settlements that the company was not within its rights to deny long distance service to customers and that there was a class action lawsuit against Sprint on behalf of all customers who were refused long distance service. I signed up and am scheduled to receive a long distance calling card from Sprint to compensate for being denied long distance service. I wouldn't even have known about this class action suit if Lawyers and Settlements has not contacted me. Thanks, Lawyers and Settlements!

Verizon. Went up against Verizon and Won!! Never made it to court but did threaten to file cicil suit against them for the $175 early termination fee they assess. I made my way up the ladder and FINALLY got justice!! I showed them the contract does not state 175 per line, ONLY PER CONTRACT!! So anyone prior to July 2004 might wanna look over the contract and if you have more than one telephone line on your contract and want out, you only have to pay the 1 fee, not per line!!
