If a company’s product or service has injured you or a loved one, you may not be alone. Mass torts and class action lawsuits allow many people to sue a company for different reasons.
Sometimes the allegations include:
- Flawed product designs
- Defects in the manufacturing process
- Lack of appropriate information
- Products that didn’t meet state and federal guidelines.
Any of these could cause serious damage or harm, and it’s not your fault.

What is the difference between a Mass Tort Claim and a Class Action Lawsuit?
The biggest difference is the size of the group suing the company over a product recall or failed service.
- Class Action Lawsuit:
A large group of people who sue because of damaged products or not receiving promised services. All people involved are treated as one “class.”
- Mass Torts:
Mass torts are smaller groups of people suing a company for personal injuries. During a mass tort, you are treated individually rather than as a group.
Does a Class Action Lawsuit Affect My Compensation?
Mass tort claims differ from other types of cases in that all of the plaintiffs split any financial compensation awarded in the case.
What Companies Might Have Product Recalls or Services?
Some examples of mass tort claims and class action lawsuits include, but are not limited to:
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- Medical devices
- Automobiles or automobile parts
- Children’s toys
- Home goods
Additionally, people can file a claim against their employer over issues such as lack of overtime pay or exposure to harmful chemicals.
