A mass tort is a fancy way of saying something terrible happened to a group of people. Sometimes that means a chemical spill that impacts property. Or an FDA recall of a particular medical device that should not have been approved for the market. Or a train derailment where many passengers sustain injuries at the same time.
At Meshbesher & Spence, our mass torts law firm is determined to protect the rights of people harmed by the wrongful acts of corporations, insurance companies, and other businesses.
Our mass tort/class action attorneys represent large groups of people who collectively bring a claim to court.
Our practice focuses on consumer fraud, private attorney general actions, multidistrict litigation (MDLs), and class actions.
A class action lawsuit is a type of lawsuit where one of the parties is a group of people who are represented collectively by a member of that group. In a typical class action, a plaintiff sues a defendant or a number of defendants on behalf of a group, or class, of absent parties.
Although standards differ between states and countries, class actions are most common where the allegations usually involve at least 40 people who have been injured by the same defendant in the same way.
The United States Supreme Court promotes cost and time saving by coordinating certain cases to be heard together. For example, during Multidistrict Litigation (MDL), all plaintiffs who file similar lawsuits in the federal court system will be consolidated and grouped with the other lawsuits filed in federal court.
At Meshbesher & Spence, our class action lawyers evaluate each case individually because we understand that every situation is unique. To learn whether participating in the MDL or pursuing your lawsuit on an individual basis is the right strategy for your case, contact us for a free consultation.
Each state has its statute of limitations that sets the maximum period after an event in which legal proceedings may be initiated.
You must file a claim against the companies and persons who may have caused your injuries (e.g., the manufacturer, marketers, sellers, or healthcare providers) before the statute of limitation expires.
