What is a Mass Tort Case?
A mass tort is a civil action that arises when many people are injured or killed by the same defective product. The claimants in these personal injury cases have suffered similar injuries, and often live in different parts of the country. Mass tort cases are usually complex, and require the attention of experienced lawyers to secure just compensation for the victims.
Why are Mass Tort Cases More Complex?
Product liability cases, in general, can be complex. But when you have many claimants with similar personal injuries, it can be difficult to consolidate the cases and prove commonality. In some instances, a mass tort will become a class action lawsuit.
But not all class action lawsuits are created equal. If your injuries are serious or you have lost a loved one, you need an attorney who will fight for your best interests—not the interests of the class as a whole.
What are the Injuries in Mass Torts?
The injuries suffered in mass tort cases can be catastrophic or even fatal. They can range from heart attacks and strokes to organ damage and cancer and everything in between. They may be caused by defective medications, harmful chemicals, faulty medical devices, or unsafe consumer products.
If you or a loved one has been injured by a defective medical device, dangerous product, or a defective drug, our mass tort attorneys can help. Contact us today to schedule a free case evaluation.

What Mass Tort Litigation Means for You
There are few people we trust more than our physicians, but they are only as effective as the tools they use. When a medical device that is meant to make your life better causes irreparable injury or suffering, you should be compensated for your pain and the changes to your life.
Sometimes, this is a failure of a medical device, sometimes it is a dangerous product, and sometimes it is medication that contains side effects that you should have known about.
Faulty Medical Devices, Products, or Medications
Unfortunately, the devices doctors and medical companies use are often sold in batches, and if one has malfunctioned it may mean the entirety of the lot is faulty. You may not know that the defective medical device that harmed you has harmed others, and if that is the case, someone should have known about it before it reached you.
The same is true with consumer products and medications. It is unlikely that the injuries or adverse effects you experienced after using a consumer product or taking a prescribed medication caused harm only to you. Consulting with an attorney about your specific case is the best way to discover if your incident should be, or already is, part of a mass litigation.
Example Mass Tort Claim in the News
One example of a well publicized ongoing mass tort case has been the lawsuits against Johnson & Johnson. The company is being sued by women who developed ovarian cancer after using their products that contain talc and has $3.5 billion in verdicts and settlements. This included one in which twenty-two women were awarded more than $2 billion. There are 38,000 pending cases according to Reuters.

Get Help from Long Island Mass Tort Attorneys
When you contact Rosenberg & Gluck L.L.P. for a free case evaluation, you may not know if your claim is a mass tort. Tell the attorney if you believe other individuals have experienced the same problem with a product or medication. If you or your attorney has reason to believe that other individuals have suffered, your attorney may do some research to see if a mass tort claim makes sense.
How Mass Torts Work
Working alone or with a group of attorneys, your claim will move forward in much the same way as a single-claimant case would. After discovery, your attorney will work collaboratively with other claimants with similar claims to uncover all the evidence needed to prove significant harm.
The defendant may settle the case out of court, or you may have to go to trial in state or federal court. The court will hear the details of every plaintiff’s claim and award damages on an individual basis.
How Long Will My Case Take?
Mass torts can take time to build, and often require a law firm with a strong support staff and resource network. Not every personal injury law firm that advertises class action or mass tort experience has the ability to obtain a fair settlement on your behalf.
