At Grewal Law PLLC, we have the legal knowledge and trial-tested experience to navigate the complexities of mass tort litigation. Unlike standard injury lawsuits, mass torts involve many plaintiffs who all suffer from a similar injury, illness, or other form of harm that resulted from the negligence or wrongdoing of another. Mass torts also differ from class action lawsuits, because each claimant in a mass tort lawsuit is entitled to a unique judgement specific to their circumstances and injuries; whereas class action lawsuits result in the same payout for each claimant.
We provide mass tort representation for the following claims:

What Is a Mass Tort Lawsuit?
Mass tort claims affect hundreds or even thousands of individuals who were harmed by a defective product, medication, medical device, or environmental hazard. These claims are brought as a civil action, as opposed to criminal, by multiple claimants who suffered physical injury, illness, emotional distress, and/or some financial loss. Most mass tort lawsuits stem from some form of negligence on the part of the responsible person or company (the “tortfeasor”) who harmed multiple individuals. To file a lawsuit on behalf of a large group of victims, an experienced lawyer asks the court for permission to file a mass tort action against a common tortfeasor.
The court considers the following when determining whether to give permission to file a mass tort lawsuit:
- How many plaintiffs are involved (the more plaintiffs involved, the more likely the court is to grant a mass tort lawsuit)
- Whether the injuries suffered by the plaintiffs are similar in nature
- The location of the plaintiffs, and whether they are near or far from one another
- Whether the claims are associated with a common cause, such as a defective product or an environmental hazard like an oil spill
