Mass Tort

If you or a loved one have been harmed by a defective product, medical device, or hazardous substance, you may be eligible for compensation through mass tort litigation, which consolidates numerous claims, allowing victims to seek justice and fair restitution collectively. Consult with Mr. Guajardo to explore your legal options for a mass tort.

You Have The Right To Seek Collective Restitution

A mass tort is a legal action involving multiple plaintiffs who have suffered similar harms from a common defendant. These cases often arise from defective products, environmental disasters, pharmaceutical drugs, or other instances of widespread harm. Unlike class action lawsuits, where plaintiffs are treated as a single entity, mass torts allow individuals to maintain their separate claims while consolidating certain aspects of litigation. Plaintiffs in mass torts retain their autonomy, allowing them to pursue compensation tailored to their specific injuries.

Common Reasons For Mass Torts:

  • Defective medical devices, such as faulty implants or surgical instruments
  • Dangerous pharmaceutical drugs with undisclosed side effects or inadequate warnings
  • Environmental contamination, such as chemical spills, pollution, or toxic exposure
  • Defective consumer products that cause injuries or property damage on a large scale
  • Occupational exposure to harmful substances or unsafe working conditions, leading to widespread injuries or illnesses

Mass Torts Vs. Class Action Lawsuits

Mass tort involves individual claims consolidated into a single action, allowing plaintiffs to maintain autonomy over their cases and pursue compensation tailored to their specific injuries. In contrast, class action lawsuits represent a group of plaintiffs collectively suing a defendant for similar harm, with one or more individuals representing the entire class.

While both seek justice for widespread harm, mass tort offers greater flexibility, whereas class actions provide efficiency in managing large-scale litigation but offer less individualized compensation.
