Mass Torts


When corporations act negligently, they can end up harming thousands of consumers across the United States. As a result of the same negligent actions or inactions of these corporations, these consumers can suffer similar or distinct injuries. When this occurs, these consumers have a right to bring individual claims against the corporations. However, for economy sake, courts can consolidate these cases into a coordinated proceeding typically referred to as "multidistrict litigation" or "mass tort litigation." In most cases, mass tort litigation involves parties injured by the same defective medical devices, drug, or automobile. These types of cases are different than class action lawsuits in that while the cases are consolidated similar to class actions, in mass tort litigation each client maintains control over their own individual case. Class actions typically have just one lead plaintiff representing a "class" of other unnamed plaintiffs.
