What Is a Mass Tort?
You may have been injured, but you may not be the only one. You may have been one of many injured parties, all because someone was careless with your safety. Now, you may be considering joining a collection of people planning to sue.
But what is a mass tort, and how could it affect your chances of success? Reach out to the personal injury lawyers at Kohan & Bablove LLP for your answers.
Joining Others for Compensation
When you’re injured by someone’s carelessness, you may not have been the only one harmed. Let’s say your medication caused dramatic side effects that left long-term damage. Other people taking that same medication may have suffered similar losses.
Because your injuries were caused by a single party’s action, such as a manufacturer, you may be eligible for a mass tort claim. That means you and other injured people may join together to sue all at once, as you’ve all suffered from a single at-fault party.
That may make proving your injuries easier, too. Now, you’ll have evidence from multiple parties of wrongdoing, which may give you a better chance to prove the at-fault party harmed you.
Types of Mass Torts
Mass torts are a chance for you to receive compensation because a company, corporation, or supplier, among others, hurt you. That includes the following types of claims:
- Toxic contamination
- Medical device defects
- Defective products or medications
- Accidents involving mass transit
- Construction disasters
