North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association has partnered with Class Action Capital, a market leader in class action settlement claim management. Class Action Capital is already successfully working with a very large number of hotels and state associations across the country helping to recover substantial refunds on their behalf from a number of recent class action settlements. NCRLA will now offer these value-added services to its members.

Many hotels do not have the time, resources or relevant data available to file a settlement claim, and Class Action Capital will work with them to submit a fully comprehensive claim recovery, while minimizing the use of their employees’ time, internal resources and the risk of errors when managing claims themselves.

Class Action Capital’s pricing model is simple in that we work on a commission basis whereby we receive a percentage of the client’s financial recovery and only receive our fee when our client recovers. Once you sign up for our claim management service, we will immediately get to work building and preparing a comprehensive claim.

The bottom line is we work to best position each client’s recovery from a settlement while minimizing our client’s time, use of internal resources and the risk of mistake if they were to take on claims management on their own. Please see below for a listing of applicable settlements and our claim authorization form.
