A mass tort is a single tort that results in injury to many victims, and therefore involves numerous plaintiffs suing one defendant (or several defendants) who acted negligently. In most mass tort cases, the various individual plaintiffs must be suing based on harm caused by a single common product. Two of the most frequent mass tort claims are:
- Consumer product claims: Many plaintiffs might sue together seeking compensation for injuries (or even deaths) caused by dangerous products; and
- Pharmaceutical claims: Unfortunately, even medical products such as drugs – both prescribed by a doctor and over-the-counter-intended to help you can be dangerous or deadly.
For a plaintiff, there are advantages to taking part in mass tort litigation. One is that the investigation and preparation that goes into a mass tort case can often be transferred from one client to another, which can vastly increase efficiency.
