What Are Mass Torts?

Experienced Greenville Injury Attorneys

Torts are a legal term used to refer to a negligent or wrongful act by one party that injures another. When pursuing legal action for personal injury, victims may either take the route of filing an individual claim or lawsuit, or becoming part of mass tort legal action. Mass torts occur when the action of an individual or entity, such as a corporation, causes injury to a large number of people.

If you think your case may fall under a mass tort or class action lawsuit, contact Christian & Davis LLC at (864) 408-8890 to learn more about your rights and your legal options.

Common Types of Mass Torts

Mass tort lawsuits are different from individual lawsuits, and are useful in reducing the number of cases being processed through the legal system. This type of action allows attorneys to represent multiple parties in individual cases for damages that they each suffered from a single source.

From pharmaceutical drugs to defective auto parts, there is an extensive range of products that are currently on the market and capable of causing significant injury or death to far more than one individual.

Some of the mass torts that our firm can help you take legal action against include:

  • Defective pharmaceutical drugs
  • Defective medical devices
  • Defective consumer products
