What Is A Mass Tort?
A ‘tort’ is the legal term for and injury caused by the negligence of another party. When multiple people are injured and suffer from the negligence of the same party, each individual can seek unique compensation from the responsible party through a mass tort claim.
A Mass Tort is similar to a Class Action lawsuit, but mass torts allow victims to seek individual representation to recover compensation that is not split amongst others who were injured by the responsible party. Class action lawsuits are collective representation from all injured victims and final settlements are split between all the injured victims.
