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.
