Understanding Mass Torts
What is a mass tort?
A mass tort is an act or failure to act that harms many people. There are many victims of a similar circumstance or type of harm.
How do mass torts work?
In mass tort litigation, many victims have common harms but individual circumstances and losses. They may combine parts of the legal process to investigate the case and share evidence more efficiently.
What is the difference between a mass tort and a class action?
A mass tort is not the same thing as a class action. A class action groups all the litigants together throughout the case. A mass tort still treats litigants as individuals with distinct damages and circumstances. Mass tort claims may be joined in multi-district litigation for pretrial efficiency, but litigants do not lose their individual status in the eyes of the court.
Mass torts do not follow uniform case processing. As a result, cases may be especially complex compared to traditional claims. Our experienced legal team is equipped to handle these claims, leading in mass tort litigation in Florida and nationally.
Types of Mass Torts
A mass tort involves many victims. It occurs when many people suffer harm in common circumstances. Sometimes, it occurs in a singular event in one place. In other situations, like a dangerous drug or pharmaceutical product, the victims are all harmed in a similar way by using the product.
Types of mass torts include:
Prescription drugs may have unacceptable side effects and related harm. These risks may not be acknowledged until the drug has been released to the public. Mass tort litigation for dangerous drugs can help victims investigate the actions of the pharmaceutical manufacturer.
Medical device injuries
Medical devices often cause serious – even fatal – problems. Medical companies aggressively market these devices, and victims may suffer serious medical complications from the very products and devices meant to help them.
Motor vehicle defects
A motor vehicle defect may cause an accident or make a crash more severe. A defect may be the result of a design error. Simple actions on the part of the manufacturer could have prevented serious harm.
The products we use each day can be unreasonably dangerous. Mass tort litigation allows victims to efficiently pursue justice when they have physical injuries and other harm.
Toxic pollution can occur in bodies of water, air, and soil. Victims may suffer acute and chronic illnesses from industrial waste and other substances.
A transportation accident involving a train, airplane, ship, or motor vehicle can result in many injuries and casualties. These victims and their families need an efficient way to investigate what occurred and have top representation in the appropriate litigation.

Help Starting a Mass Tort/Defective Drug Case
With a mass tort, each victim recovers their own set of damages. Damages may be economic and non-economic. Depending on the circumstances and applicable law, a victim may receive compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Prescriptions and costs of medical devices
- Future medical bills, rehabilitation
- Lost wages, lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental health injuries
- Emotional anguish
- Disfigurement and disability
Damages are unique to the losses that the person has incurred. Future damages may be a significant part of compensation for a mass tort and must be pursued as part of the comprehensive treatment of damages in mass tort litigation.
