Class action vs. mass torts

Most people have heard of a class action lawsuit, but not everyone is familiar with the differences between class action and mass torts litigation.

Both mass torts and class actions lawsuits arise when a large number of people suffer injuries or other damages because of a single cause, such a single defective product, a disaster, an unfair business practice, etc.

With mass torts, each plaintiff’s case is handled on an individual basis. In a class action claim, however, one or two of the injured parties will act as representatives for ALL those who suffered damages.

Common Mass Torts Cases Include:

  • Consumer Products
  • Medical Devices
  • Toxic Torts
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Disasters
