What is a mass tort lawsuit?
Mass tort lawsuits entail a large number of plaintiffs who were affected in similar ways, one example being by the side effects of pharmaceutical drugs.
Mass torts will entail a large number of similar cases brought to one court where the relevant evidence is shared amongst each individual case.
Mass torts are often confused with class-action lawsuits, but there are significant differences between these types of litigation. The main differentiation is that the plaintiffs involved in a class-action suit will be provided the same judgment, whereas each individual case is valued within mass tort lawsuits.
How do you know if you qualify for a pharmaceutical drug mass tort lawsuit?
Defective drug lawsuits are much more common than most people would originally assume, and if you have been injured at all by a prescribed pharmaceutical drug then you very well may be entitled to compensation.
Our legal team is comprised of product liability experts who have helped countless victims hold ‘Big Pharma’ companies accountable for their injuries.
We’ll be able to help answer your questions pertaining to your overall qualifications for litigation because we’ve been there for so many past clients, and know what qualifies within mass tort lawsuits and what doesn’t.
What challenges do plaintiffs face in obtaining compensation?
Pharmaceutical companies will always have a tremendous amount of resources available to them, including very large, experienced legal teams on their side. These massive entities are always ready to defend themselves within these types of mass tort litigation processes, which is why it’s crucial that you’re working with equally skilled legal representation when presenting your injuries in court.
Proving your case against pharmaceutical companies can potentially be rather difficult, and this is predominantly because the manufacturers of these drugs will almost always have placed warning labels and side effect lists on the drug’s bottles. These warning labels will be the pharmaceutical company’s main defense, but it undoubtedly doesn’t get them off the hook when their general negligence is a significant factor.
There are many instances in which a drug’s labels aren’t properly placed or generally noticeable, and after years of research, these companies should know better as to not publicly distribute drugs that are potentially very harmful.
We’ll never deny the blatant challenges that go with this type of mass tort litigation, but we’ll also always undertake a case in which any individual is rightfully owed compensation for their injuries.
When we review the facts of your specific case in your initial consultation, we’ll help you better determine what specific parameters are at stake within your mass tort claim.
