Find out if you have a good case
A mass tort is when many people or entities are harmed in some way by the actions of someone else, usually a business or corporation. Mass torts are sometimes referred to as class action lawsuits, although the two are technically different. In a class-action lawsuit, all of the victims are represented collectively and have the same injuries or losses. In a mass tort, every victim has an individual claim and does not necessarily have the same injuries or losses.
Mass tort cases can happen in many settings and many industries. For example, contaminated foods or pharmaceuticals and defective medical devices or products can all harm hundreds if not thousands of individuals per instance. For each case, the harmed individuals would be the victims, and the at-fault corporation would be the defendant. If you were harmed in any way by the actions of a business or corporation, speak with a dedicated Essex County mass tort litigation attorney from Birkhold & Maider, LLC, today.
As unfortunate as it is, it is not uncommon for products that are meant to help people to end up hurting them. People can be injured or become ill due to manufacturer negligence, poor worker training, unclear product labeling, poor product testing, product contamination, and blatantly false advertising.
For example, new drugs and pharmaceuticals can be highly profitable to produce and can lead to significant profits for the first company to produce a certain drug. However, this may entice a pharmaceutical to skip important safety tests or rush to production before ensuring that the drug in question is even safe. The same applies to products, devices, and services of every kind, from cars and home appliances to foods and more.
