What is a Tort?
Class Action Torts
All class action cases are civil torts to some degree. There are often court rulings that require stopping the production of targeted products when they have been proven defective and dangerous. The Takata airbag class action suit is a prime example of this type of case. Commonly available products like Roundup, Zantac, Valsartan, 3M Military Earplugs, and JUUL Vaping Products, are just a few examples of how actions that start life as individual cases of civil tort can rapidly become mass-tort class-action cases with major legal movements involving many individuals who are harmed by products released on the market without sufficient testing.
Mass Tort Claim Technicalities
It is always vital to have an experienced civil tort or class action lawyer involved in pursuing damages where defective products have the potential to cause or have caused, injury to multiple claimants. Tort cases involving defective products are recognized in the legal industry for their complexity and significance, since there are so many potential cases waiting on the outcome of the initial ‘test’ case, with a view to filing class action cases against manufacturers who have been determined by the legal system to be culpable of producing products shown to cause unintended harm to users of the product.
