Mass tort litigation allows groups of people who have suffered harm in a similar way to pool their resources to hold a big corporation accountable for their injuries. These cases may involve defective medical devices, unsafe prescriptions drugs, asbestos exposure, and man-made disasters caused by toxic chemicals or emissions. This type of litigation is complex and usually involves a pattern of facts that makes the cases similar enough to be joined together. The cases involve extensive research and preparation. The legal experience of the attorney counts.

Mass tort litigation may be an effective legal option if you and others have been injured by the same product such as a recalled medical device or an unsafe prescription medication. It would allow you to pursue compensation for your injuries. These claims allow victims with similar patterns of injuries from a single product to take advantage of the strength of numbers to proceed against a defendant, usually a large corporation, and have the potential for a greater impact.
Our Kentucky mass tort attorneys of Becker Law Office have appeared in courtrooms from Massachusetts to California representing clients in class action litigation.
These claims are often consolidated in multi-district litigation before one judge for the purposes of pre-trial proceedings. Each individual plaintiff is represented by his or her own attorney. If the cases are not settled, each case proceeds to trial on its own. But you benefit from the work that legal professionals do for others during the pre-trial phase of the case. Documents, evidence, investigations, and other key pieces of the case may be shared among the plaintiffs. This helps ensure that your claim will have access to evidence that others have gathered.
Mass tort multi-district litigation allows damages that are tailored to the individual plaintiff’s injuries. This means that if you were seriously injured, you may demand the maximum amount of compensation possible based on your specific injuries. In this type of litigation, our attorneys will fight to make sure you get the compensation you need.

A mass tort case begins with a series of cases that focus on a single factual problem. For example, victims who all were prescribed the same drug for a medical condition and suffered harmful side effects as a result. These cases often arise after an event such as a product recall or product warning by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, indicating a link between a product and some type of injury. Plaintiffs involved in a class action case are allowed to share research, discovery, and other related matters.
Mass torts are often consolidated into a multi-district litigation (MDL). Parties will file with the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation which will review the claims and decide whether the case should be handled as an MDL for more efficient use of the court’s time and resources. If the panel decides that an MDL would serve the interests of the parties involved, the case will be transferred to an appropriate court to administer. The court will form a steering committee to represent the interests of all plaintiffs.
