What Are Mass Torts?
Mass torts are similar to class action lawsuits, except instead of all plaintiffs beings treated as one “class,” plaintiffs can file individually under a mass tort.
What Are Class Actions?
Negligent parties routinely adopt policies, enter into standard form contracts, or otherwise engage in uniform transactions which affect large groups of individuals in the same or similar ways. The uniformity of a defendant’s treatment to the class members gives rise to common issues among them. These common features often render a class action the most efficient means to resolve a dispute.
Most situations where misconduct targets a large group of individuals does not justify bringing individual cases. Given the unfortunate realities of the costs of litigation, individual lawsuits are not economically viable unless a minimum of tens of thousands of dollars are the issue.
Our class action defense attorneys have represented banks, corporations, insurance companies, and governmental entities, and many others in class action and mass tort lawsuits.
While class action lawsuits are not well-suited for all controversies, in many circumstances they can be an indispensable tool in protecting consumers and discouraging corporate misconduct. A class action usually demands the commitment of financial and other resources and before pursuing a case as a class action, Lavender Hoffman Alderman, LLC will carefully analyze the suitability and advantages of this approach to your case.
