Mass Tort: What You Need To Know
The vast majority of corporations are responsible, ethical members of the business community. However, every so often a corporation cuts corners, and it is typically the customers and the general public who pay the price. When this happens, it can lead to a class action lawsuit or multi-district litigation. This, in a nutshell, is “mass tort.”

Mass Tort Vs. Class Action; What’s The Difference?
While both types of cases are similar, they are handled differently. In both instances, lawsuits are consolidated into one case instead of separate claims. This is in order to cut down on the number of court cases that are dealing with the same problem. The biggest difference is that mass tort cases often involve people in the same geographical area. Regardless of how many people are included, each member is treated as an individual.
In class action suits, the group is typically larger and is considered a “class.” The entire group is represented by an individual who stands in for everyone to make their case. Everyone involved is treated as a group, or one plaintiff. We will help you determine what steps are the best to take based on your situation.
