What Is a Mass Tort Lawsuit?
Mass tort claims involve a single "tort" or civil - not criminal
- wrong that results in injury or damage suffered by many people. Examples
of common mass tort cases include defective or
dangerous product claims and pharmaceutical injury claims. Class action lawsuits are similar
but must adhere to a more narrow set of restrictions and specifics.
Many mass tort claims involve complex matters such as:
- Asbestos exposure
- Mold exposure
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Hip replacement injuries
- Table saw accidents
- Dangerous drugs
Process of Filing a Mass Tort Claim
The attorney representing the injury victims must petition the court in
order to file a mass tort action. Various factors will be examined before
permission can be granted, including the number and location of plaintiffs,
and the similarity of their injuries and their cause. If permission is
granted, a judge will most likely be assigned to the case.
