Lafayette, Louisiana Mass Tort Attorney
What Is a Mass Tort?
If a large group of plaintiffs have been injured by the same business or
product, they may be able to file a single mass tort action seeking damages.
A court will typically only allow plaintiffs to file mass tort claims
if their injuries are similar, if a large number of plaintiffs are involved,
and if the cause of the injuries arises from the same product or act.

Difference Between a Class Action and a Mass Tort
The difference between the two comes down to how the cases are handled
by the courts. In a
class action, the lawsuit is represented by a class representative and all the plaintiffs
are treated as a single plaintiff that results in a single judgment. In
a mass tort case, each plaintiff's case is treated as an individual
with individual rulings for each case. Learn more about the difference
and how you should file your claim by talking to an experienced attorney.
