A “mass action” or a “mass tort” allows thousands of individual lawsuits to be grouped together and, sometimes, resolved in an orderly fashion. Many of the mass tort actions brought across country involve claims for injuries from defective medical devices and pharmaceutical drugs. Other types of mass tort actions often include contaminated waters from chemical polluters, or products like baby powder.
As with class actions, there is strength in numbers, and mass actions can hold drug companies and device manufacturers accountable for the way their product injure, or even kill, unsuspecting patients. An important difference between class and mass actions is that in a mass action, each injured person must file his or her own lawsuit.
