What Is a Mass Tort?
A mass tort arises when many plaintiffs file individual lawsuits against a defendant. The victims allege that the defendant 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 that we handle include:
- Consumer product claims: Mass tort claims for consumer products typically involve dangerous kids’ toys, defective 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’s actions harm 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.
