Philadelphia Mass Tort Litigation Attorneys
When you buy a product, take a medication or use a medical device, you trust that it is safe and effective. Yet, what happens when you find that trust is misplaced — when a product causes you and many others injury?
It may seem daunting to bring a lawsuit against a big company such as Johnson & Johnson. Yet, chances are, you are not alone. Mass tort litigation allows you and other plaintiffs to work together to hold a company responsible for the injuries caused by its unsafe products.

What Is a Mass Tort Case?
In a car accident lawsuit, there are generally a few victims with unique injuries. In a mass tort case, however, there are many people who have suffered similar injuries because of a wrong done to them by one or more companies. Mass tort claims generally fall into one of two areas:
1. Pharmaceutical liability/medical defect claims: Dangerous drugs and medical products often find their way into the market and may even stay on the market long after the companies are alerted to defects. Examples include:
2. Consumer product claims: Mass tort cases can also involve dangerous consumer products such as dangerous toys, kitchen electronics and automobiles.
Unlike class action lawsuits, mass tort actions involve injured individuals with distinct damages. Therefore, each plaintiff will have his or her own lawsuit. Certain mass tort claims, however, can be consolidated as multidistrict litigation (MDL) to speed up the process.
