What Are Mass Tort Lawsuits?

Ongoing Mass Tort Lawsuits Handled by Our Firm

Mass tort lawsuits are legal proceedings that involve a large number of plaintiffs who have been injured by the actions of a defendant or defendants. These cases are often complex, as they require several parties to prove their individual claims in court. Mass tort law can be used for various types of injury-causing events, including product liability, medical malpractice and environmental disasters. In mass tort lawsuits, each plaintiff has an individual claim but must participate in the same suit against the defendant or defendants. This is different from class action suits where all the plaintiffs share one common grievance with the same defendant or defendants.

Benefits of Joining a Mass Tort Lawsuit

The primary benefit of pursuing a mass tort lawsuit is that it allows multiple plaintiffs to join forces and fight for compensation collectively instead of having to pursue separate claims. This can be especially useful when many of the plaintiffs have suffered similar injuries or losses due to a defendant’s negligence. The collective action of multiple plaintiffs can help strengthen the claim and lead to a bigger settlement for all involved parties. In addition, with mass tort lawsuits, each plaintiff retains his or her own individual case, meaning that they are not bound by the outcome of any other case.
