How Much Does A Class Action Cost?

Generally,  class action attorneys advance all the costs of the litigation and get paid on a contingent basis (i.e., they only get paid if they win).  If the class action lawsuit is successful, the class action attorney will petition the court to award attorney fees and reimbursement of costs, which are usually paid by the defendant or out of a common fund  that is recovered on behalf of the class.  If the class action lawsuit is unsuccessful, however, the class action lawyer might not get paid anything.

    I would like to know about this class action. I am one of the many who involved in rescue – recovery and clean up. I was working in ground zero from 9/12/2001 to 11/25/2003. Right now I am sick with sinus, GERD and other respiratory problems. I wonder whether I can talk to someone about the posibility of joining the class action. Thank you
