When many individuals have a similar injury or claim against a company or other entity, they can enter into a mass tort, which allows them to collectively file a personal injury claim against the negligent or reckless party in order to seek compensation for their injuries and losses. While mass torts can take the form of multidistrict litigation (in which the preliminary process – the discovery process – for all cases is consolidated to expedite the lawsuits), they may also be filed as class action lawsuits, in which multiple plaintiffs with similar claims come together to file a single lawsuit against the negligent party.
Because mass torts can be extremely complicated cases, particularly when thousands of plaintiffs are involved, it’s crucial that individuals with mass tort claims work with experienced lawyers who can:
- Fully protect their rights both in court and during mediation or arbitration proceedings
- Help them secure the maximum possible compensation for their injuries, medical bills and losses.
