Mass Torts Class Action Attorneys | Romanucci & Blandin

Class action lawsuits and mass torts have similarities but they are not exactly the same. Class action lawsuits involve one suit being filed on behalf of a group of plaintiffs who are similarly situated. When plaintiffs join a class action suit, they sign away their right to filing an individual lawsuit.

Mass torts are when there are several cases that are similar and they are combined into a single trial, but each case is preserved as an individual. Mass torts lawsuits have a great benefit in saving time and money on legal resources with the other plaintiffs.

Mass torts are categorized under a personal injury lawsuit. Many times, mass torts stem from just one act of negligence or wrongdoing that had extensive damage. Mass torts can involve plaintiffs who live in different legal jurisdictions. The different types of mass torts include:

  • Dangerous or defective products-injuries or deaths that were caused by a dangerous or defective product
    • Automobile defects
    • Faulty medical devices
    • Unsafe pharmaceuticals
  • Disaster torts-injuries or deaths that were caused by a large event
    • Aviation accidents
    • Bridge collapses
    • Chemical spills
    • Train accidents
  • Toxic tort-injuries or deaths that were caused by an exposure to a toxic substance
    • Asbestos
    • Diesel fuels
    • Pesticides
