What Is a Mass Tort Lawsuit?

When a significant number of different people are hurt, harmed, or injured in the same or similar way by the same or similar product, it falls under the umbrella of mass tort litigation. Every lawsuit is brought separately by each person, and the outcome is reached on an individual basis.

You need more than multiple lawsuits for a mass tort to be established, though. The facts between each person’s case must be factually similar. In most situations, mass torts are established when there is large scale injury by defective products or medications.

A mass tort lawsuit provides a path toward financial resolution for a serious accident or injury. However, these types of cases tend to be more complex and challenging than a typical personal injury case. This is because mass torts tend to involve particularly catastrophic events, such as:

  • Train and plane crashes
  • Defective medical devices
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Toxic substances

It is important to have the guidance of an experienced attorney who is prepared to meet the challenges most commonly associated with mass tort litigation. Otherwise, you risk missing out on compensation that is essential to your recovery—or missing out on compensation altogether.

Albuquerque Mass Tort Lawsuits and Class Actions – What’s the Difference?

Although you might have heard the two terms used interchangeably, “mass tort” and “class action” refer to two different legal processes.

Whereas mass tort litigation is established by the filing of many individual lawsuits by people who have similar injuries stemming from the same cause, a class action lawsuit is when one or more plaintiffs file a single lawsuit on behalf of other people. Sometimes multiple lawsuits are combined into a single class action. This suit is then settled or litigated as one, and any award is then split among all class members.

What Does the Mass Tort Litigation Process Involve?

There are four main phases of a mass tort lawsuit. These are:

  1. Initial filing. Our law firm will file your suit against the negligent or at-fault party on your behalf. By filing the suit in a mass tort action, you can expect your case to be strengthened by the collective power of all cases filed in this way.
  2. Your attorney will gather evidence and information related to your case during the discovery phase. This may involve reviewing medical records, interviewing eyewitnesses, working alongside expert witnesses, and preserving important information.
  3. As a multidistrict litigation, mass tort allows for your claim to be filed in a federal court. A small number of “bellwether” cases may be tried first. The outcome of these trials gives attorneys and plaintiffs a better idea of what to expect.
  4. Your case will be resolved, either with an out-of-court settlement or a jury verdict. In general, settling outside of court typically leads to faster resolutions. However, if a settlement that fully addresses your damages cannot be reached, our attorneys will not hesitate to elevate your case to the courtroom.

Navigating the collection and preservation of evidence, federal court filings, and negotiations without the backing and support of a qualified legal representative is more than just challenging—it can be nearly impossible. At every turn, your version of events will be questioned and scrutinized. If you’re not knowledgeable in all the laws, statutes, and regulations that apply to your case, you will have little to no footing to recover the compensation you need.

Powerful Legal Representation for Life’s Most Difficult Times

Life is unpredictable. While you might do everything in your power to minimize the chance of serious injury or illness, your actions only go so far. When a company, entity, or person is negligent and causes significant harm, you may have the legal right to recover compensation for all of your losses and damages.

Don’t let your opportunity to find justice pass you by. Taking part in Albuquerque mass tort lawsuits can open up a path to a sense of justice and financial security. And the legal team of Barrera Law Group LLC is prepared to provide unparalleled guidance and legal representation no matter how challenging your case might be.
