These types of cases involve claims of numerous claimants grouped together. Class actions involve a large group of people who have allegedly been harmed, common defendants that have allegedly caused the harm, and a lawsuit that is grouped into one claim, and not into separate claims. Mass torts are individual claims against a common defendant that are not able to proceed as a class action. However, these individual claims are grouped together in the interest of saving time and money. Essentially, mass tort cases occur if the facts between the claimants are too different and outweigh the common issues of fact and questions of law required to proceed in a class action.
Mass Torts & Class Actions We Handle
Asbestos, Mesothelioma, and Asbestosis Lawsuits – Asbestos is a dangerous substance that has been connected to a number of deadly diseases such as mesothelioma and asbestosis.
Mesothelioma Lawsuits - Mesothelioma is a rather aggressive form of cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs, as well as the heart and abdomen. It is caused by exposure to asbestos. Prognosis is generally poor, but hope persists for those who treat in the early stages. Mesothelioma claims generally depend on several factors, including how the exposure happened, the duration of exposure, and the effects of exposure.
Asbestosis Lawsuits - Asbestosis is a chronic, gradually progressive lung disease that greatly hinders a person’s ability to breathe. The sole cause is asbestos exposure. Symptoms worsen over time and often lead to respiratory failure and other deadly complications. Currently, there is no known cure for asbestosis.
