Class Action Lawsuit Lawyer
Mass tort is a term that refers to the grouping together of a number of individual civil cases with similar causes of action or injuries. These cases are grouped together for the purposes of pretrial discovery and are collectively referred to as a mass tort. Each plaintiff still maintains his or her individual case but common issues such as discovery and court rulings are handled together to promote judicial efficiency and manage cost. Mass tort actions typically involve defective drugs or defective products that have injured a large number of people in similar ways.

A class action is a type of lawsuit where one of the parties is a group of people who are represented collectively by a member of that group. The grouping of people who were hurt, victims of fraud or injured by products and services can increase their power and reduce legal costs. These suits can help people who were hurt by getting them compensation much faster than individual claims.
The class action began in the United States and is still mostly a U.S. practice, but several countries in Europe, have made changes to allow consumer organizations to bring claims on behalf of consumers.
