Making everyday life safer and healthier.
A mass tort is a legal action used to seek remedies on behalf of hundreds—or even thousands, of individuals—when a company acts in a way that harms or injures many people similarly. For instance, an apartment with asbestos in its walls can negatively affect the health of the entire complex’s residents. Or if a particular make and model of a car has a faulty ignition, it puts everyone who bought that vehicle at risk.
A mass torts action empowers that group to hold the company accountable and to prompt new policies or changes so people are safer going forward.
