Houston Mass Tort Claims
What is a mass tort?
Mass tort is a claim that is filed when many people are injured by one product. The injuries caused by the said product are usually similar in all victims and by filing a mass tort claim, all their voices will be heard together. To be considered for a mass tort claim, a single product must have injured multiple people in a similar fashion. The injuries must be factual and have evidence such as medical proof backing that they are legitimate and there must be interdependence between different claims.
Chances are, you may have heard of mass tort lawsuits or you yourself may have been involved in one. Popular mass tort lawsuits include pharmaceutical claims and claims for defective medical devices such as Yaz and Yasmin, the
transvaginal mesh, and OxyContin. Tobacco industries have had a few mass tort claims as well as the chemicals known as Agent Orange, Asbestos and DDT. There are some products that consumers have been injured using that have all been involved in mass tort claims. An example of this would be the rising number of transvaginal mesh and Mirena IUD lawsuits. If you feel that you are a victim of a product that may have caused significant injuries to other people, it is important that you contact a
Houston personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
