Though many companies follow rules and regulations to keep customers safe, some do not. Either through error, lapses in quality control, or purposefully disobeying regulations, companies can easily cause significant harm to individuals. If this happens, those who have been affected have the right to file a mass tort claim.
Mass tort law is complicated, and as such many people miss the opportunity to seek legal action when they suffer injuries from these types of situations. This leaves many innocent victims to face damages caused by the poor behavior of companies and large corporations.

A mass tort is a civil action involving numerous plaintiffs against one or a few defendants in state or federal court. The lawsuits arise out of the defendants causing numerous injuries through the same or similar act of harm, for example, a prescription drug, a medical device, a defective product, a train accident, a plane crash, pollution, or a construction disaster.
The main categories of mass torts include:

Many people believe that they do not need an attorney of their own because mass tort cases involve several victims rather than just one or two. However, this is not the case. Though there may be attorneys leading the claim, it is still extremely beneficial to have your own attorney to help you navigate the process.
A primary reason for hiring your own attorney is the ease of communication. Many people find it difficult to properly communicate with the lawyers who are leading mass tort cases. This results in individuals being left behind or excluded because the attorneys do not have time to address the sheer amount of questions and concerns from all affected individuals.
In a mass tort case, you will still need to make your own claim and will be judged individually. Like any other serious legal case, your claim will require proper legal representation.
It is also important to note that the defense will have extensive legal resources at its disposal. Many companies responsible for mass tort incidents are large corporations with seemingly endless funds. As such, corporations have access to serious legal services that will be difficult to face on your own without legal support.

Many people use mass tort and class action cases interchangeably, but there are important distinctions. If you are entering into either a class action or mass tort claim, it is important to understand both so that you can make empowered choices about your claim.
In both mass tort and class action claims, many people are affected by one event. Usually, the event is caused by a company or business’s mistake or negligence. The effects may range from physical injuries to chronic diseases like cancer and mesothelioma.
In class action claims, the court assesses the situation as a whole and makes a collective judgment that will apply to everyone who was affected by the company’s negligent actions. This is in contrast to mass tort claims, where the court views each case individually as part of a group claim. It also means that two victims in a mass tort claim may receive different judgments based on their unique situations.
There are many people involved in a mass tort claim, and as a result, it may take years for your claim to fully resolve. Often, this time is spent waiting for the court to review all necessary information and work through the complex details of the claim.
It is important to know that the mass tort system exists to expedite the process. Though years may seem like a long time, navigating the situation as a group rather than as a personal injury claim can result in a faster and easier process for you individually.
The litigation for a mass tort goes through the same court to ease the process. However, this may mean that your case is happening in another state or that other victims are from different states. This can complicate things and make it difficult to receive answers when you need them. Having an attorney to represent you can significantly help with this by giving you a single source for your questions and information.
Our team at BLG has been helping individuals and groups with their mass tort litigation for years. We aim to hold companies accountable when they do something wrong, and we can help you to get the support and settlement that you deserve after you have been injured by a company’s product or poor behavior.
