How Do I Know If I Have a Mass Tort Lawsuit?

Mass tort claims are filed by numerous people who have been injured by the same defective or dangerous product. It is a civil lawsuit that is commonly filed against a manufacturer, pharmaceutical company, or other party who marketed and sold harmful products. If you were injured by a defective or dangerous device, and there are several others who have also suffered injuries from the same product, you may be able to file a mass tort claim.

Unlike class action lawsuits, which combine all individual claims into one and divide the settlement evenly, mass tort lawsuits allow each individual to file a separate claim to receive compensation. This is typically due to the fact that each person may have suffered different injuries from the same product, and that they should be able to receive different amounts of compensation.

The injured parties are allowed to combine evidence, as well as other information and resources in the pre-trial phase. This speeds up the process and helps each person receive a fair amount of compensation in a timely manner. In essence, mass tort lawsuits are several lawsuits filed against the same company for injuries caused by one of its products.

They commonly apply to:

  • Dangerous drugs or pharmaceuticals
  • Dangerously designed or defective consumer products
  • Dangerous or defective medical devices

Furthermore, mass tort lawsuits allow injured clients to obtain more compensation than they would receive in class action lawsuits. They will be able to obtain individual settlements that meet their specific financial needs, instead of having to share a settlement with other clients.
