Morris James is an established 70-lawyer full-service firm with a national litigation presence and more than 90 combined years of success. Our Mass Torts attorneys pursue companies and organizations across the country that have wrongfully caused physical, emotional, and financial damage to blameless individuals. We relentlessly pursue justice and compensation for our clients.
Is Mass Torts The Same As Class Action Litigation?
No. In mass tort cases, we represent a group of individuals who have suffered injuries as a result of the negligence or misconduct of a company or group of companies. In these cases, each person’s injuries and damages are individually evaluated so that the amount of compensation recovered is based upon each individual’s presentation and injuries. Class action cases are different in that typically each plaintiff who is a member of the class receives an equal, but small, share of any settlement or award.
What Are Common Mass Torts Claims?
Mass tort litigation is commonly used in cases of dangerous or defective products, defective medical devices or pharmaceuticals, man-made disasters such as gas explosions and train derailments, and exposure to toxic substances.
Some of the mass torts cases that our attorneys have handled include:
In these cases, as in all our work, the litigators at Morris James have worked diligently to give a voice to injured victims and hold powerful organizations accountable for their actions. We fight to get compensation for the medical bills, lost wages, property damage, financial losses, pain and suffering, and other damages of our clients.
How Can a Mass Torts Lawyer Help Me?
When you have been injured as a result of the actions of a large company, it is difficult to deal with the layers of administration and hierarchy in the corporate and legal systems to find answers to your questions or get the financial help you need. A mass torts attorney not only fights through this maze for you but also brings you together with other people who have suffered in the same way as you. Together, your voice is louder and your negotiating power is increased. The end result for you is a much better chance at being heard, and ultimately receiving full and fair compensation for your injuries and losses.
Our lawyers are skilled attorneys with decades of trial experience and numerous accolades in the legal industry. They have received recognition from respected organizations such as Super Lawyers, Best Lawyers, and Chambers USA. But more importantly, we have earned the respect and trust of our clients.
At Morris James, our attorneys have been standing up for victims since we opened our doors in 1932. If you have questions about mass torts, contact us online or call us at 302.655.2599 to speak to one of our experienced litigation attorneys.
