What is a Mass Tort?
Mass torts injuries to a wide group of people caused by one or more common at-fault parties. Mass tort lawsuits are legal actions that enable a large group of plaintiffs to collectively address grievances against one or several defendants. These actions often arise from environmental hazards, defective medical devices, consumer product defects, and more.

Damages in Mass Tort Litigation
Victims of mass torts may often seek damages for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, out of pocket expenses, and punitive damages, where applicable. Our goal is to fight to help ensure you are fully compensated for the losses you’ve endured.
Multidistrict Litigations (MDLs)
Multi-District Litigation (MDL) in federal court is a legal procedure designed to efficiently handle complex cases that involve multiple plaintiffs across different jurisdictions, typically in cases like mass torts or large-scale product liability suits. In MDL, similar individual cases are transferred to a single federal court for pre-trial proceedings, including discovery and motion hearings. This consolidation often streamlines the process, reduces conflicting rulings, and conserves resources. Each case retains its individual nature, and if a settlement isn’t reached during the MDL process, cases can be sent back to their original courts for trial. We have experience in navigating these consolidated proceedings.
Class Actions vs. Individual Claims
Class actions are consolidated cases, but often decisions on settlement are made by the lead Plaintiffs, which may be ratified by class members. Class actions could be opt in or opt out, and can take many years to resolve. While class actions are a form of litigating a mass tort, they are not the only option. We assist clients in determining whether to join a class action or pursue individual litigation, based on what is most advantageous for their unique situation.

We can work with local lawyers to help prosecute product liability lawsuits throughout the US to help level the field against these large corporations.
