A mass tort is a case where many people are injured or harmed by a product and they each sue the corporation individually under the same claim. While there are many separate cases, they will most likely share characteristics or be based on similar injuries.

2017 saw many products with negative consequences. Many of these lawsuits are expected to continue to develop in 2018, but other new cases will develop and make headlines as the year continues to unfold.

When you need medical treatment, taking prescriptions drugs is usually part of it. By the time you’re an adult, you have a good idea of what drugs you’re allergic to or what side effects you experience when you take a specific drug.

But your body changes as you age. Older adults might have a stronger response to a drug than a young adult. This reaction could lead to further health complications.

Drugs sometimes have adverse effects that aren’t clearly advertised on the bottle. Or, pharmaceutical companies might have cut corners with research to push the drug to the market faster. These actions can hurt the people who take them. In these situations, you need an Atlanta product liability lawyer. Bey & Associates will stand up for your rights when a product is defective or dangerous.

How Can a Mass Tort Claim Help Me?

Every year, Georgia residents are injured, harmed, and suffer because of dangerous products like medical devices and drugs that are not properly tested or were rushed to market too quickly. When this happens, individuals harmed by these products can file what’s referred to as a product liability claim against the manufacturer. Doing so may award a suffering or struggling family with the financial compensation they need to move forward.

More times than not, when a product or drug is discovered to be dangerous, multiple victims will come forward who have experienced the same symptoms, injuries, or negative consequences. In cases like this, it’s common for legal teams to form what’s known as a mass tort or multidistrict litigation (MDL) claim.

If you were injured, harmed, or suffered due to a defective or harmful product, drug, or device, you may have a right to file what is known as a product liability claim or lawsuit against the manufacturer of that product. Doing so can let you and your family receive the financial compensation you need to recover as well as send a message the manufacturer can’t ignore.

Product liability claims in Georgia can be quite complex. When filing a Georgia product liability lawsuit, you need to prove or “demonstrate” strict liability. What this means is that you don’t generally need to prove negligence or intent. You will, however, need to prove the following points:

The Most Important Mass Torts in 2017

Mass tort law is an aspect of personal injury law which involves cases with a large number of plaintiffs that share a common claim against a common group, company, or manufacturer. The most common types of personal injury mass torts involve pharmaceutical drugs, defective medical devices, and dangerous products. Mass tort claims make it infinitely easier for a law firm to help multiple clients at once and ensure action is taken to remove a defective or dangerous product from market.

Like many of the most complex types of civil lawsuits, mass torts can take years to fully settle. This is because most cases have strict deadlines that need to be followed. Also like most types of civil lawsuits, civil torts sometimes award settlements that offer both punitive and compensatory damages. These damages are rewarded to help victims recover as well as deter the defendant from repeating the same mistake.
