Current Mass Tort Cases
What is a Mass Tort Case?
A tort is a wrongful act that causes harm to another individual or person that often leads to civil legal liability. When a wrongful act causes harm to multiple people, usually by a large corporation, a mass tort lawsuit is the most effective way to make sure your rights are protected and that justice is served. More often than not, mass tort occurs when individuals have been endangered by a pharmaceutical or defective product.

Types of Mass Tort Cases
There are a few types of common mass tort cases. If you are unsure which category that best fits your case, explore the top 4 types of mass tort cases below:
- Pharmaceutical – Pharmaceutical mass tort occurs when a defective drug or medical device causes dangerous side effects with no prior warning to neither the physician or consumer.
- Toxic Substances – Victims of a mass toxic tort have faced illness or injury* due to being exposed to hazardous chemicals either at work, at home, or through their environment. Oftentimes, the plaintiff is directly exposed to the toxin, the toxin is ingested, or becomes exposed through a defective product.
- Product Liability – Perhaps the most common mass tort lawsuit, a product liability mass tort is a result of a manufacturer’s negligence in selling a faulty product, or failing to provide adequate information.
- Disaster – Disaster mass tort can be caused by either a natural disaster, such as flooding, or a man-made disaster, like an oil spill. While the disaster itself is the cause of the plaintiff’s illness or injury*, a corporation can be held accountable if the man-made disaster occurred on-site, or if the company did not pay out claims following a natural disaster.
