In present-day society, many people are jumping on the legal bandwagon and are willing to sue just about everyone: people, companies, and even governments. So it shouldn’t be a surprise that there is an increase in the companies offering to represent clients in suits against timeshare organizations like Disney and the Villa Group Timeshare. However, what they fail to let us know is that the only one who mostly benefits from this arrangement is the legal team and not us.
When a group of people get together to sue a person or a company at the same time, that legal action is called a class action suit (or representative action). Class action suits are perfect for situations in which many people share the same solid case against another person or company—as is in the case of most medical and fraud suits. As long as there is the probability of a failure to uphold an agreement (or contract), then a class action suit will prove to be beneficial to those involved.
If you are planning on filing a class action suit against a timeshare company, your first priority is to make sure you have a potential case and make sure the legal company you use is a legitimate company. Most of the class action suits filed against the Villa Group have been unsuccessful because fraudulent legal agencies are conning innocent clients into believing their legal services will help them win the case. Instead of trying to resolve the issue with the timeshare company, many people mistakenly are encouraged to participate in a class action suit.
There are some disadvantages to trying to file a class action suite against timeshare companies. For example, let’s say your case against the company is strong, but most of the other people in the group have a weak case. If this is the case, then you will lose the class action suit because your case is only as strong as your weakest claim. Another thing to remember is once you lose in a class action suit, you can not go back and file an individual suit. So consider the cost when it comes to taking on a class action suit.
One thing to keep in mind is that most failed class action suits originate from fraudulent legal representation. These companies know they will get paid even if you lose your suit. Also, be suspicious of any company trying to offer non-cash awards like coupons to exchange for other products.
It is highly recommended you get in touch with an upper level administrator if you ever have any problems with the Villa Group Timeshare. That way, you give them a chance to live up to their promise to provide high quality service—a trait they have been known for doing (which is why there are not many cases won against them in that area). So just spare yourself the headache of potentially being scammed by dealing with the Villa Group directly.
