Mass Torts

Orlando Mass Torts Attorneys – Vaughan Law Group

Mass torts are lawsuits pertaining to serious personal injuries, caused by the same defective product, which affect a significant number of individuals. A mass tort lawsuit combines the legal complaints of a large number of plaintiffs into a single trial. However, unlike a class action suit in which all complaints are tried together, a mass tort treats each plaintiff as an individual with their own personal claim.

Mass torts, filed in federal and state courts, can include multiple plaintiffs and defendants. While clients are independently represented in mass tort cases, documents and depositions are often shared among the parties in trial and settlement negotiations, making a case more timely and cost effective.

Litigating mass tort claims requires skill and knowledge to handle several issues at once. The Vaughan law firm has a wealth of experience handling mass tort litigation. Our qualified attorneys are trained in determining and meeting the challenges that arise in mass tort cases.

Mass tort claims can include everything from defective products like heart defibrillators, to dangerous drugs such as Vioxx, to toxic chemical contamination like asbestos.
