What Is a Mass Tort?
A mass tort involves a large group of individuals who have suffered harm by the same toxic exposure or defective product but not in the same way. In some ways, a mass tort lawsuit is similar to a class action. Both involve a group of plaintiffs seeking damages whose claims are combined into a single legal action rather than filing many individual lawsuits.
However, these proceedings have distinct differences. First, mass tort claims rarely consist of a single class of individuals. Also, each claimant is treated as an individual even though they are part of a larger group. Ultimately, each must prove they have suffered harm by providing convincing evidence, such as medical tests and scientific studies.
Toxic Substance Mass Torts
Toxic torts are personal injury claims brought against responsible parties for injuries caused by exposure to harmful pollutants through contaminated groundwater, soil, air, and chemicals in consumer products, such as:
- Lead paint
- Petroleum fuels
- Talcum powder – baby powder and other products
- Toxic mold
- Dangerous pharmaceuticals
- Cleaners and degreasers
Toxic torts typically involve life-threatening injuries and illnesses, including:
- Respiratory ailments, such as asthma
- Developmental disorders in children
- Cancers caused by exposure to known carcinogens
- Brain or nerve damage
Toxic substance mass torts can arise from a single incident of contamination or after a hazard is discovered in the environment that has been lurking for years, such as water contamination at Camp Lejeune Marine Corps Base in North Carolina. If you or a loved one has developed a medical condition due to toxic exposure, the Law Office of Mo Abusaft can help you obtain just compensation.
Medical Device Mass Torts
Many patients who receive medical devices, implants, or products to improve their medical condition experience unforeseen injuries and side effects from defects. Our legal team has successfully handled mass torts involving medical devices such as:
- Hernia mesh
- IVC filters
- Metal-on-metal hip implants
- Transvaginal mesh (TVM)
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury due to a defective medical device, we will fight for the maximum compensation you deserve through a mass tort lawsuit.
Medication Mass Torts
People rely on prescription and over-the-counter drugs to treat illnesses and injuries; however, pharmaceutical companies often bring new drugs to market without adequate research or monitoring trials and fail to warn consumers about the potential side effects and risks. Our mass tort attorney works to hold drugmakers accountable for causing consumers who use their products harm.
