Mass Torts Attorney

Fighting for Justice on Behalf of Our Clients

Have you been seriously injured due to a defective product, dangerous drug, or toxic exposure? If so, you should immediately contact our team of Mass Torts lawyers to discuss what legal options are available for you. When a defective product is allowed to be sold to consumers, thousands of people can potentially end up suffering a serious injury. If others have suffered injuries caused by the same defective product, you might be able to to bring a mass tort claim against the negligent party.

However, mass tort actions are different than other types of lawsuits, which is why you need an attorney who is familiar with the procedural rules. Our legal team is here to guide you through the legal process and make sure you understand your rights under the law.

What Is a Mass Tort?

Most Mass Tort cases are usually filed when numerous people have filed individual lawsuits against the same defendant for similar injuries. With a Mass Tort case, attorneys represent multiple injured parties and combine their resources and evidence to make sure that all plaintiffs can obtain maximum compensation for their injuries.

Common Mass Tort Claims

  • Defective medical devices
  • Transportation disasters
  • Defective pharmaceutical drugs
  • Environmental disasters
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals

What to Expect From Your Mass Tort Case

Most Mass Tort claims are filed with federal courts, but you can also file at the state level. Where your case is heard will depend on the circumstances of the injuries in question. To determine if your case can be part of a Mass Tort lawsuit, your attorney will need to first get permission from the court.

Courts look at the following things when determining the status of a claim:

  • The number of plaintiffs involved
  • The location of the plaintiffs
  • Whether the plaintiffs have suffered similar injuries
  • If the claims were brought forth from similar circumstances
  • Where the defendants are located and conduct business

If your claim is approved by the court, a judge will be assigned to oversee the Mass Tort case.
