Mass Torts

When a manufacturer sells a defective or dangerous product, they place their customers in danger of serious injury or death. When that product is sold across a wide geographic area, and the same or similar injuries affect numerous victims, the manufacturer may become the target of a mass tort lawsuit. A mass tort lawsuit allows victims of similar injuries from the same product to pursue compensation against the manufacturer of a faulty product.

How Mass Torts Work

A tort is an unjust action, excluding a breach of contract, that leads to physical, financial or emotional harm to another party. A tort implies that the injured party should receive compensation from the party who committed the wrongful action. Mass tort lawsuits typically involve multiple plaintiffs with a shared claim regarding a specific product, practice, or action. Since the party who committed the injury has injured several other parties, the injured parties can work together in a mass tort lawsuit.
