Mass tort litigation is something that most people know very little about. Generally, a mass tort is a civil legal action involving numerous plaintiffs against one or several corporate defendants in a state or federal court.
Mass torts are both complex and important. Complex because cases can involve thousands or even millions of documents as well as hard-to-understand issues regarding venue and multiple defendants. Important because mass torts are an effective way to 1) obtain needed compensation for multiple victims, and 2) as a way to effect change by holding corporations responsible for wrongdoing.
