Mass Tort If You've Been Injured by a Harmful Product

harmfulproducts collage 650

 

Mass tort is a civil action involving a number of plaintiffs who are suing one or more legal persons (companies). This civil litigation can take place in state and federal courts. The person(s) who commits the tort (the defendant) is held legally responsible for damage or injury done to the victim(s) (the plaintiffs). The typical mass tort case usually involves several plaintiffs and one defendant who has acted irresponsibly and negligently thus causing harm to the plaintiffs.

For example, residents near an industrial facility can sue in a mass tort action on the account of their exposure to toxic chemicals that are released into the underground waters. Only recently, a Japanese pharmaceutical company has agreed to pay out a mass tort settlement worth $2.4 billion as a compensation for patients and their families who claimed that the company’s diabetes medication caused bladder cancer. The Louisiana plaintiffs in this mass tort action were awarded with $36.8 million.

Even corporate giants like British Petroleum (BP) are not immune to having to pay for the damages their actions have caused. You probably remember the 2010 incident when the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded, causing 11 deaths and immense environmental damage, as well as forcing many seafood companies from Texas, Alabama, Florida and Louisiana out of business. After five years of litigation, BP agreed to pay out $18.7 billion.
