Mass Torts

Mass torts are acts or omissions that harm or injure many people like defective products or dangerous drugs where groups of individual lawsuits are filed against the same defendant. Stein Law is currently evaluating claims for several mass torts including toxic baby formula, talcum powder and Elmiron.

A mass tort is some act or omission that harms or injures numerous people. Some examples of this kind of activity include dangerous drugs or products, commercial plane crashes, groundwater contamination due to toxic waste disposal, or noxious pollution emanating from industrial factories. Mass tort actions are not single cases but rather groupings of individual lawsuits alleging the same issues against the same defendant(s), and as such, they frequently involve multidistrict litigation. 

These actions are used to seek remedies in situations where a class cannot be certified or there exists some benefit over filing a class-action lawsuit. This type of tort can also give rise to mass tort class action lawsuits, where a complaint from a class representative, a person representing a class of injured individuals, is heard in one suit by federal courts under Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, so long as the involved parties establish minimal diversity.
