Fighting for Justice for the Injured in Mass Tort Claims
When a defective product injures a person, it is common to file a personal injury claim. There are times, however, when many people all suffer the same or similar injuries while using the same product. In these cases, it's more practical from the court's point of view to handle them as a mass tort. Instead of many individual lawsuits being brought and each being handled individually, it's less complex to file a mass tort claim. There are advantages to this type of lawsuit, and the attorneys at Nielsen & Mukerji, LLP are skilled litigators in mass tort claims. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as a result of a defective product, you need quality representation to maximize your chances of being fully compensated.
The basis for a mass tort claim is that each person involved was injured while using the same product, and the harm was caused by the negligence or recklessness of another. The responsible party could be the manufacturer, designer, distributor, retailer, repair facility and possibly others. As these injuries happened to a significant number of people, it can be handled as a mass tort lawsuit. Examples of mass tort claims have been for dangerous drugs injuries, defective medical machines,
Mirena IUD lawsuits, Agent Orange poisoning, and other consumer products.
These are not the same as class action suits. In the latter, all the individuals represented share equally any compensation that is won through a settlement. In a mass tort claim, there can be several different suits being handled as one single case. Any compensation awarded to the individuals represented is proportionate to the value of each person's claim.
