Enabling attorneys and settlement administrators to quickly define, analyze and facilitate successful class action lawsuits and settlements
When a class action lawsuit arises, it is paramount that the defendants and plaintiffs have access to accurate, comprehensive vehicle and owner data to properly analyze and define the size and value of the class to assist in supporting the litigation process. Once the class action settles, it is important to be able to identify the current and historical owners included in the class to support quick, accurate notification.
- Identify the number of vehicles and owners in a class action
- Analyze the class and define the value of the settlement
- Identify current owner name, address and contact information
- Ensure execution of class action notification and reporting
