Mass Torts

Mass Torts Legal Help What is a Mass Tort?

You see the multitude of commercials on TV and also a single Mass Torts law firm Google search will lead to thousands of law firms vying for your mass tort injury case but what exactly is a mass tort? Mass torts are a type of civil lawsuit that help families and individuals get compensated for the deaths and injuries they sustained as a result of a dangerous drug, product defect or environmental issue.

What is a Mass Tort?A mass tort is when that same problem causes lots of deaths or injuries to a group of people—or to a mass of people. For instance, a prescription drug that causes injuries or deaths that could have been avoided had the drug company done further or better testing or provided better warnings (or even any warnings) to its users.

Common types of mass torts include the following:

  • Round-up and Monsanto claims
  • Mesothelioma (aka Meso) cases
  • IVC Filters
  • PPI chronic kidney disease and gastric cancer
  • Hernia Mesh
  • Talcum Powder Ovarian Cancer Cases

What is the Difference Between a Mass Tort and a Class Action Case?

What’s exactly the difference between a mass tort and a class action case? Victims of mass torts have a very individualized set of damages exclusive to them that requires careful and experienced work-up and preparation whereas a class action case is a single trial with a more uniform distribution of compensation among the various victims and claimants.

Common Types of Mass TortS

While your injuries and case are unique, mass torts usually can be classified into three (3) general categories:

  1. Drug Injury Cases: Xarelto, Taxotere and Essure are just a few examples of pharmaceutical drugs that have lead to major mass tort cases. Injuries and deaths as a result of a prescription drug or over the counter drug are often avoidable when the drug maker acts responsibly and does adequate testing and provides users with sufficient warnings—but when they don’t and you are injured from them, we can make a claim to get you paid for their errors and negligence.
  2. Consumer Products: Everything from a car part to “Round-Up” and asbestos exposure and Mesothelioma (Meso) cases can fall into the consumer product category of mass torts.
  3. Toxic Environmental Exposure: When a large (or small) company or government entity causes an environmental issue that is toxic for those around it, it is hard to escape and many individuals end up with life-altering injuries or die from toxic environmental exposure to things like oil spills and dirty or toxic water.

Whether you know you lived in an area with a toxic issue or you think that something around you is making you sick, call us today (or send us an email) and then let’s talk about what’s going on.
