Taking On The Complexities Of Mass Tort Litigation
With the manufacture and sale of a product comes a legal obligation to ensure that what the manufacturers introduce to the market is safe. When they fall short in those obligations, they are putting consumers at risk. Knowing the risks and failing to inform the public takes away informed decision-making and puts buyers at risk.
Mass tort litigation is a complex area of the law involving several consumers suffering harm from the same product, regardless of the individual outcomes. Unlike class action cases, mass tort involves multiple plaintiffs filing individual claims pursued separately.
