What is a Mass Tort?

A tort is defined as a wrongful act that causes harm to another person. Therefore, a mass tort is a wrongful act that directly causes harm to several people. Personal injury lawsuits surrounding mass torts are often filed against large companies. These companies collectively engage in wrongful acts that cause damages to several independent litigants.

When multiple people suffer injuries and damages that are similar following the use of the same product, they are able to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer under mass tort. This type of lawsuit allows each plaintiff to file a claim to recover compensation in the full amount of their individual damages.

We often hear people joining together to file class-action lawsuits. Although this type of claim can be helpful for a large number of victims, class action claims do not allow victims to recover compensation for their action damages. Class action lawsuits receive one award that is divided equally among each plaintiff. Alternatively, mass tort claims allow several plaintiffs to use the same evidence and information to seek compensation in the amount of their actual damages.

By filing a mass tort claim, victims are able to save time and money by sharing the evidence collected against the manufacturer. Furthermore, if one person has their personal injury claim thrown out, it does not affect another personal injury litigation. Each victim has their own chance to prove their injuries and damages and demonstrate why they deserve compensation.
