What Is a Mass Tort Case?
A mass tort arises when many plaintiffs file individual lawsuits against a defendant, alleging they caused all of their similar injuries. In most situations, the plaintiffs file suit against the same defendant or multiple defendants. However, mass torts can include plaintiffs filing claims against different defendants with similar products or services. Attorneys working on the case can share resources and use that knowledge or information for their client’s benefit.
A few examples of mass tort lawsuits include:
- Consumer product claims: Mass tort claims for consumer products typically involve dangerous or defective kid's toys, car parts or harmful food.
- Pharmaceutical claims: Pharmaceutical mass tort claims deal with dangerous drugs and medical devices that result in severe, or fatal, consequences for patients. Current cases include Nexium, Invokana, Essure and IVC filters.
- Environmental torts: When a corporation causes harm to the environment, a mass tort lawsuit may be filed if a large group suffers injuries. An oil spill is a great example of an environmental tort.
