A mass tort refers to a civil action involving numerous plaintiffs against one or more corporate defendants in state or federal court generally alleging the same defect or claim. Mass Torts are often consolidated into an “MDL” (multi-district litigation), in federal court, or a consolidated action, in state court, to streamline the discovery process. When a large number of cases alleging the same product is defective, consolidating of the cases can aid in the prosecution of the case.
Most mass tort actions involve pharmaceutical drugs. However, sometimes they center around failed medical devices or defective agricultural products. Regardless of the specific product, in large mass actions, plaintiffs still must prove certain things. In large mass product liability actions, a Plaintiff must prove that a product was unreasonably dangerous and defective by design, manufacturing or marketing. Further, a Plaintiff must prove that this defect was a proximate cause of the injury or loss suffered by the Plaintiff.
