Mass Torts

What is a Mass Tort?

 A civil action perpetuated by one individual or person which causes harm to another is called a tort. Legally, corporations are considered to be a “person.”

A mass tort involves numerous victims working with a personal injury law firm who sue one defendant or multiple defendants. All individual plaintiffs need to sue as a result of damages and/or injuries originating from a common product.

A mass tort action is created when the lawyers or personal injury law firm for a group of plaintiffs request the court for permission to file. The court then reviews the following criteria as well as various other issues prior to giving permission:

  1. The amount of plaintiffs involved;
  2. Where plaintiffs are located;
  3. If injuries are similar in nature and suffered by plaintiffs
  4. If claims of plaintiffs have a commonality, i.e. an individual product or incident.

Mass tort actions handle each plaintiff as an individual.  Each Plaintiff will have their own individual trial.

If it is determined that your injuries were caused by the negligence of a corporation, manufacturer, or retailer we will file a lawsuit to pursue the full compensation you deserve.
