Metro Detroit Mass Torts Attorney
Mass tort lawsuits are similar to class action lawsuits, but they aren’t exactly the same. With a class action lawsuit, a large number of people are all negatively impacted by something in the same way, such as being overcharged by a cable company or injured in the same way by a defective product, and one lawsuit is filed on behalf of many people.
But in some cases, many people are harmed by something, often a defective product or a dangerous drug, but they aren’t harmed in the same way, making it difficult to form one class for a class action suit. These types of situations are handled as mass tort suits.
