How many people are needed to bring a class action?

By: LawInfo
A single person who has been injured may bring a class action on behalf of everyone who has been harmed. It is common, however, after the action has been started for many other injured people to join the class suit.  In some situations, there may be a minimum number of class members specified by law in order for the lawsuit to proceed as a class action.
