Medical Device Lawsuit Questions
• What is a “Mass Tort?”
A mass tort is a fancy way of saying something bad happened to a group of people. Sometimes that is a chemical spill that impacts property. Or an FDA recall of a particular medical device that should not have been approved for market. Or a train derailment where many passengers are injured at the same time.
At Meshbesher & Spence, we’re dedicated to protecting the rights of people who have been 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 actions, private attorney general actions, multi-district litigation (MDLs), and class actions.
• What is a “Class Action Lawsuit?”
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.
• What is an “MDL?”
The United State Supreme Court promotes cost and time saving by coordinating certain cases so they can be heard together. 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 the mass torts law firm of Meshbesher & Spence, we evaluate each case individually because we understand that every situation is unique. Contact us to discuss whether participating in the MDL or pursuing your lawsuit on an individual basis is the right strategy for your case.

After realizing I needed help, a friend recommended me to Ashley. Meeting Ashley for the first time, I felt the support and understanding I so desperately needed! Ashley made me realize the life I was missing out on. She told me from day 1 to trust her and throughout the process, she always made me feel that she had my best interest in mind. I will forever be grateful for Ashley and how she saved my life!
I worked with Lindsey Carpenter on a car accident injury after my previous attorney had unexpectedly passed away. I had a wonderful experience with Meshbesher & Spence. Lindsey kept me updated every step of the way. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and definitely fast to get results. I highly recommend using her.
Jim and staff were very professional, sympathetic, kind, understanding, explained everything to me in a timely manner. Jim was available at any time I needed him with quick responses. They also explain everything in detail and made the process a better learning experience. In addition to great personal interpersonal communication skills, they also got me the maximum settlement. If you ever need an Attorney Meshbesher is your trusted partner time and time again! Thank you!
