What is a mass tort? A mass tort is a type of litigation that consists of a large number of individual plaintiffs that allege injuries related to a specific type of allegedly defective/dangerous device or drug (for example, alleged harms or injuries caused by a pharmaceutical product) against one or a few defendants in the federal or state courts.
Explosions, commercial aircraft disasters, groundwater contamination brought on by the improper disposal of toxic waste, or noxious pollution coming from industrial enterprises are a few instances of mass tort lawsuits.
