Frequently Asked Questions

What is this case about?

Fortnite exposed children to deceptive gaming features. As a parent, you may have noticed how addictive Fortnite is. But you may not know that Fortnite is designed to maximize the amount of money it extracts from players. Fortnite limits a player’s progression unless they purchase “loot.” A player can only purchase loot unless they first purchase Fortnite’s virtual currency called “V-Bucks.” This leads players, most of whom are children, to feel as though they are spending monopoly money and purchase increasing amounts of V-Bucks. Further, Fortnite places insufficient parental controls over in-game purchases.

We are a private law firm helping parents recover what they or their children spent on in-game purchases in Fortnite. It is free to sign up and only takes a couple of minutes to apply. If successful, we could recover what you spent on in-app purchases in Fortnite and up to three times that amount depending on where you live.

In certain States, parents of children who spent money on Fortnite can recover the money they spent. In some cases, they are also eligible to recover up to three times the amount they spent.

When your child created their Fortnite account, they agreed to resolve disputes with the company individually, through private arbitration. We want to be your lawyers for that process and would fight to get back every penny you are owed. The fact that this is an individual case means we ask for more information than is normally required when signing up for a class action settlement.

There is also a Fortnite class action settlement that we aren’t affiliated with. The deadline to submit a claim to the settlement is April 26. We don’t think that settlement is fair for parents or will result in meaningful refunds for anyone and that signing up for arbitration is a better option. Read on to learn why.

No. You may have received an email about a Fortnite class action settlement. On February 26th, a class action settlement was preliminarily approved in the North Carolina state court. Our firm is not affiliated with this settlement. In fact, we think it is a bad deal for parents of Fortnite players. If finalized, it will take rights away from every Fortnite player in the United States who bought or used virtual currency in the past five years – including your child, without adequate compensation in return.

Fortnite’s biggest contribution in the settlement was giving some current players 1,000 V-bucks. To even be eligible to receive cash under the settlement, parents need to submit their child’s Fortnite account information, the dates and amounts of their virtual currency purchases, and an explanation for why they believe they were harmed to a settlement administrator before April 26. The settlement administrator doesn’t have to give you anything, or even an explanation of why your claim was denied. Regardless of how much your child spent on Fortnite’s virtual currency over the last five years, the settlement administrator can’t refund you more than $50. And, the more people submit claims, the less everyone will get.

The settlement doesn’t require Fortnite to change any of its practices surrounding virtual currency. The lawyers who settled with Fortnite will ask the judge to approve up $11.3 million in fees for them.

If you don’t want to file a claim in the class action settlement but want to still try to recover from Fortnite for your child’s in-app purchases, answer the above questions. Then, sign our attorney-client agreement so we can work on your individual case. All information can be provided through our secure client portal. Our lawyers will then get to work. The whole process takes only a few minutes.

All information is confidential and will only be used for your case.

The choice is yours. You can either join the settlement, sign up with us, or do nothing. However, we strongly recommend that parents of Fortnite players who spent more than $50 on virtual currency over the last 3 years sign up by filling out the questions above. You will then have the help of our firm as you consider your options.

Fortnite’s unfair and deceptive business practices, like loot boxes, have earned the company billions of dollars.  It has also placed many children at risk of gaming addiction.  If Fortnite can settle its case with no opportunity for parents to recover the full amount of what their children spent, it can continue to engage in these practices without being held accountable. 

No, your child’s participation is not necessary. There are no in-person hearing requirements, and this is not court. You can provide all documents and information we need for the process through our secure client portal.

Our fees will be a percentage of the settlement or recovery we obtain for you. That amount will depend on the rules in the state you live in. We only receive a fee if you win, and you will never owe us any money.

Arbitration is one way to resolve your disputes with companies other than filing a lawsuit in court. It is a private process that is generally faster and less formal than court. Your claim will be decided by an arbitrator, who is a neutral person chosen by you and the company. We can select an arbitrator for you who is fair and neutral.

Many consumer agreements or services, like T-Mobile’s Terms and Conditions, have mandatory arbitration provisions in their agreements and/or terms of use, along with class action waivers. You probably signed these agreements, such as with banks and credit card companies, even if you’ve never seen them or do not remember. They are also found in many online click-through agreements, such as travel, shopping, gaming, or entertainment sites. These clauses not only require you to arbitrate your claim, but to do so individually.
