The Haeggquist & Eck team is devoted to helping persons who have been injured or wronged by the conduct of another.
A class action lawsuit is a legal action in which one or more “named” plaintiffs sue a defendant on behalf of a larger group of people. The group is known as a class and the named plaintiffs are referred to as representatives of the class.

ORANGE COUNTY ATTORNEYS REPRESENTING VICTIMS OF CONSUMER INJUSTICE, PERSONAL INJURIES, AND EMPLOYMENT LAW VIOLATIONS
As the sixth-most populous county in the United States, Orange County has more than its share of consumers. Unfortunately, it also has more than its share of victims who are deceived by false advertising, billed for unlawful bank and credit card charges, and subjected to needless anxiety as the result of data breaches.
When Orange County consumers have had enough, they turn to The Haeggquist and Eck Firm to help them fight back. By bringing class action lawsuits, consumers are able to obtain remedies that assist thousands of others who suffer from credit reporting errors, annoying telemarketing calls, unlawful debt collection practices and other consumer violations of consumer protection laws.
Orange County employees also get help from The Haeggquist and Eck Firm when they are victimized by employers who withhold wages, fail to pay overtime, discriminate on the basis of race, nationality or sex, or permit unlawful workplace harassment.
Orange County residents and visitors alike obtain the legal services of The Haeggquist and Eck Firm when they are injured in traffic accidents. We also represent victims who are injured by hazardous property conditions and unsafe or defective products.
Orange County Attractions
Orange County attracts residents, workers, and visitors for many reasons. Visitors come for its many attractions, including two of the world’s most famous theme parks: Disneyland and Knott’s Berry Farm. For a slightly more low-key experience, visitors combine entertainment with shopping and dining at the Irvine Spectrum Center.
Whale watching tours begin at Newport Landing and Dana Point, but the views of the California coastline are just as impressive as the chance to see whales. For a shorter excursion, the Balboa Ferry takes visitors to the charming resort community of Balboa Island.
Sightseers who want to stay on land can enjoy 42 uninterrupted miles of Orange County beaches. Wide expanses of sand are found in Huntington Beach, while Newport Beach prides itself on having the cleanest beaches. For dramatic beauty, however, it’s hard to beat Laguna Beach.
Impressive historic architecture is easy to find in Orange County, from Mission San Juan Capistrano to the historic buildings in Orange, Tustin, and Crystal Cove. The Segerstrom Center for the Arts in the Costa Mesa Theater & Arts District hosts concerts, ballet, and Broadway shows, while Santa Ana’s Bowers Museum showcases the history of Southern California culture.
Orange County Consumer Class Action Attorneys
Consumer protection laws that regulate debt collectors, credit reporting bureaus, and telemarketers do not assure that businesses will obey them. The same is true of laws that regulate the charges and fees that banks and credit card companies are allowed to impose.
Any deceptive or fraudulent activity that harms an Orange County consumer is likely to violate a federal or California law. False advertising and deceptive labeling cause consumers to waste money on products that fail to match their advertising or labeling claims. “Made in the USA” labels attached to goods made in China and “sugar free” drinks that are full of glucose are among the common advertising or labeling claims that deceive consumers.
Data breaches are also a growing concern for consumers. A company that fails to safeguard the personal data of its customers exposes those customers to the risk of identity theft and financial fraud when their data is stolen. Too often, consumers are not timely notified of the breach.
The burden and cost of suing a business often outweighs the financial loss a consumer experienced. Fortunately, class action lawsuits allow consumers to join together. The combined value of thousands of individual claims forces businesses to take their complaints seriously. The consumer class action attorneys at The Haeggquist and Eck Firm help Orange County consumers fight for justice in a way that changes deceptive or unfair business practices while compensating consumers for their losses.
Orange County Personal Injury Attorneys
Heavy trucks are a common sight in Orange County. Traveling from ports and distribution centers to warehouses and stores, heavy trucks crowd the county’s roads. They are also responsible for some of the most devastating traffic accident injuries on Orange County highways.
The personal injury and wrongful death lawyers at The Haeggquist and Eck Firm help Orange county accident victims. Drivers and passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians who are injured by negligent drivers all find effective and compassionate representation at The Haeggquist and Eck Firm.
When injuries result from dangerous products, the Haeggquist and Eck firm helps Orange County residents recover compensation under product liability laws. We also help victims of injuries that were caused by a negligent property owner, such as a business that fails to prevent customers from slipping on a wet floor or tripping on frayed carpeting.
Orange County Employment Lawyers
Orange County employees continue to be plagued by discrimination for unlawful reasons, including their national origin, sex, race, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, or religion. Employees face hostile work environments and harassment because of their sex, race, or ancestry. Employers often refuse reasonable requests to accommodate disabilities.
When an Orange County employer violates a law that protects an employee from discrimination, The Haeggquist and Eck Firm can help. We stand up for employment discrimination victims in every Orange County community.
The Haeggquist and Eck Firm also assists employees who are not paid the wages they earned, including overtime. We help salespersons collect their commissions and, when they are entitled to it, minimum wage and overtime. We also help Orange County employees who were denied the rest breaks and meal periods that California law requires, or who did not receive their final wages on their last day of work after being fired.
Many Orange County employers attempt to avoid federal and California wage and hour laws by misclassifying employees as exempt or as independent contractors. The Haeggquist & Eck Firm helps employees fight back against misclassification. When an employer is large and many employees are affected by a wage violation, we use the power of class action lawsuits to gain justice for all affected employees.
