Class Action Mass Torts

Defective Products And Class Actions

If you were injured when using a defective product such as a medical device or defective car part, you may have a claim for compensation against the manufacturer. One problem with this kind of legal action is the large expense involved in conducting an appropriate investigation. Individual claimants often cannot afford the risk involved in preparing to sue a large corporation for compensation after suffering harm caused by a defective medical device or car part such as an accelerator or brake system.

A solution that has helped many injured consumers is a class action lawsuit brought by a large group of injured claimants. You may be able to recover compensation cost-effectively through "mass torts" (a class action lawsuit) if you suffered injury and economic losses because a hip implant or medication was defective. Alternatively, the facts of your case may indicate that you stand a good chance of a good outcome through a traditional direct lawsuit on your own against a manufacturer.
