Mass Torts are lawsuits filed by a certified group of plaintiffs against one or more defendants. When numerous people are similarly injured by a common cause/defendant(s), these people can join together to consolidate their claims into a Mass Tort. All consolidated claims will then be heard by one Judge in one jurisdiction. This helps to streamline the process and expedite the trials of all such claims.
Mass Torts are similar to Class Action lawsuits, but in a Mass Tort, each individual claim is potentially tried in court. In Class Action lawsuits, the Court hears only one consolidated case and applies its ruling to all of the participating plaintiffs. Many defective drug lawsuits against pharmaceutical companies tried these days are Mass Tort cases as opposed to Class Actions.
