Mass Tort Attorneys in Memphis
Helping Thousands of Clients Get Paid since 1970
When corporations that do business on a regional, national, or international scale put profits ahead of the health and welfare of the people who buy or use their products, they cause an enormous amount of pain and hardship.
What Is Mass Tort Litigation?
Mass tort litigation is when a group of people who have the same complaint against a company or corporation file a civil suit together. The damages awarded are divided among the plaintiffs.
The three main categories of mass tort litigation are:
- Mass disaster torts
- Mass toxic torts
- Product liability torts
Below are a few examples of current mass tort suits:
- Transvaginal mesh. This net-like implant was designed to treat pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence. It has been linked to organ damage, chronic pain, bowel and bladder perforation, and urinary problems and infections.
- Xarelto. This drug is a blood thinner linked to uncontrollable internal bleeding and deaths in patients. To learn more, visit our Xarelto page here.
- Zofran. This is a drug typically used for anti-nausea. It was illegally marketed off-label to pregnant women, who then gave birth to deformed babies
- Syngenta GMO corn. This lawsuit is related to the commercialization and marketing of Agrisure Viptera and Agrisure Duracade corn seeds.
- IVC filters. This is a temporary filter inserted into a large vein that carries deoxygenated blood into the heart. It’s been known to fracture and shift, puncturing the heart and lungs.
In mass tort litigation, a group of people who have been harmed in some way by the actions of a defendant (or several defendants, e.g., asbestos manufacturers) agree to join their individual claims into one lawsuit.
