A Tort is a wrong. It involves any damage, injury, or wrongful act done willfully, negligently, or in circumstances involving strict liability. Mass Tort litigation arises from civil actions involving numerous plaintiffs suing a few, common corporate defendants in state and/or federal court for actions arising from a single accident or exposure to some product or substance.
Not all torts are the same. They must be classified and managed according to its unique qualities and characteristics. There are three types of mass torts:
- Mass Disaster Litigation – claims based on injuries allegedly resulting from a single, isolated accident or disaster.
- Mass Toxic Tort Litigation – claims of financial damage that allegedly arise from business practices.
- Defective Products Litigation – claims of injury allegedly due to a common, harmful condition that cannot be attributed to a single accident or disaster.
Often, drug makers, regulation agencies and corporations rush approval of a certain products based on demand or financial gain. Our job as Consumer Justice Attorneys is to see that those manufacturers are held accountable and take responsibility for injuries to consumers that could have been prevented.
