Filing a Product Liability Claim

In general, there are three different kinds of product liability claims:

  • The product was manufactured with a defect
  • The product has an inherent (and dangerous) design flaw
  • The product has insufficient instructions and warnings regarding proper usage

Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.

A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:

  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)

Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.

Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.

In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual’s claim “value” is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.

A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.
