When large masses of people are similarly injured, damaged or harmed by the same product or service, a mass tort or a class action lawsuit may be the more appropriate lawsuit to initiate in either federal or state court. 

Examples of mass tort or class action cases include:

  • OxyContin
  • Breast Implants
  • Cigarettes/Tobacco
  • Asbestos
  • Mesomethiolama

A mass tort lawsuit includes many plaintiffs with similar cases, but each plaintiff's case is treated individually.  A class action lawsuit is the same as a mass tort lawsuit except all plaintiffs' cases are not treated on an individual basis, but rather on a group basis. Regardless of the method chosen, either method allows an attorney to collectively represent many plaintiffs simultaneously, while litigating the matter as one large case.  This also allows for a more effective and efficient use of legal resources for the betterment of all involved, including plaintiffs, the court system and all defendants.
