When individuals participate in a medical procedure, buy a product, or put themselves in a situation where they expect their lives to be changed for the better, they deserve to receive the anticipated and promised results. Unfortunately, every day across the United States people become the victims of others’ negligence and suffer physically, mentally, and emotionally as a result.
Those who become the victims of negligence at the hands of a company, corporation, or organization are entitled to a settlement for their sufferings. Sufferings may include personal injury, illness, lost wages, and/or medical bills. And, when a common group of people experiences hardship as a result of a common occurrence, they can file a class action or mass tort lawsuit.
Understanding Mass Tort vs. Class Action
Although class action lawsuits and mass tort lawsuits are very similar and both involve multiple victims of negligence, there are a few major differences to understand.
- In class action claims, all of the victims experience the same (or extremely similar) personal injury or hardship as the result of negligence.
- In mass tort claims, all plaintiffs are victims of the same negligence, but their hardships or personal injuries significantly vary.
In both cases, class action and mass tort claims, the victims are likely entitled to a settlement from the negligent company or organization, however, the defense is approached differently.
The Karnas Law Firm has significant experience representing companies, individual clients and classes of people in mass tort litigation throughout the United States. From litigation on behalf of residents following disasters caused by a corporation to large dangerous product claims, we have successfully represented clients throughout the nation in significant class action lawsuits.
Do You Have a Case for a Mass Tort Claim?
Across the United States, countless mass tort and class action lawsuits are filed each year. The most common types of mass tort claims include:
- Defective Medical Devices
- Man-made Disasters
- Defective Drugs
- Toxic Contamination
If you or a family member has experienced personal injury or hardship as a result of one of these situations, you might be entitled to financial compensation for:
- Medical Bills
- Pain and Suffering
- Lost Wages
- Future Loss of Wages
- Mental and Emotional Damages
Discussing your case and circumstances with an experienced lawyer is the best way to determine whether or not you are entitled to a class action or mass tort settlement. In addition to the major differences between the two types of cases, a trusted attorney will understand the intricate details that help them understand the best way to present your case.
