If you or a loved one in Nashville has been injured by a company's product or service, you may not be the only one. Mass tort claims have been filed against dozens of companies over allegations that product designs are flawed, the product was made defective during the manufacturing process, the label on the product did not fully inform consumers of risks, or that a company failed to adhere to state or federal guidelines for the industry it is involved in.
At Bart Durham Injury Law, my team of attorneys and I are passionate about protecting your rights. Our aim is to be your legal watch dog and keep you informed of the latest mass tort claims that have been filed.
What Is A Mass Tort Claim?
Essentially, a mass tort claim is filed when a large group of people have received similar injuries when using a product or receiving a service. Not only does a mass tort case simplify the legal process by consolidating these claims, but it shows the pattern of injuries associated with that company. Mass tort claims differ from other types of cases in that all of the plaintiffs split any compensation that is awarded in the case. Furthermore, the injured victims may come from different jurisdictions, rather than from one localized area.
Identifying Types Of Mass Tort Cases
Mass tort cases can be filed against any company that provides a product or service to the public. Some examples of mass tort claims include, but are not limited to:
- Pharmaceutical drugs
- Medical devices
- Automobiles or automobile parts
- Children's toys
- Home goods
Additionally, people can file a mass tort claim against their employer over issues such as lack of overtime pay or exposure to harmful chemicals.
