Definition of a Mass Tort

The Boynton Beach mass tort lawyers at Kogan & DiSalvo handle many types of mass tort litigation, including:

  • Pharmaceutical products
  • Medical devices
  • Products and other devices
  • Toxic torts involving environmental and catastrophic events

A mass tort is a collection of individual claims filed by multiple people against one or few defendants. All of the people who filed the claims are seeking damages for injury or harm caused by a product or an event (such as an environmental spill). Although mass torts are similar to class actions, the important difference between mass torts and class actions is this: each mass tort plaintiff has an individual and unique claim and distinct damages.

Listed below, you will see some of the specific products that fall under the categories above.

Pharmaceutical Products
