Either way, you might think you know how suing Verizon Wireless works. Especially if a bunch of people have the same problem, wouldn’t you find a lawyer and bring a class action suit against Verizon Wireless?
Well, that’s where an obscure term of company contracts comes in — it’s called consumer arbitration — and it’s incredibly common.
If there’s a consumer arbitration clause in your contract with Verizon Wireless then you probably can’t sue Verizon Wireless in a “real” court — like state or federal court. And you probably can’t sue Verizon Wireless as part of a class action.

If your contract has an arbitration clause it gives you the right take legal action against Verizon Wireless through an officially-designated, independent dispute process that’s not a court and won’t require showing up in person. This can be a better option for a lot of regular people.
