New York / New Jersey Mass Tort Litigation Attorney
Mass tort litigation deals with defective drugs, medical devices and other wide used products that cause injury or death involve thousands of consumers or patients across the nation (or world). A method of disposing of all of the cases in a more efficient manner had to be developed in order to avoid having many state and federal courts bogged down for years in litigation. “Mass tort litigation” is the legal creation that permits one court to aggregate and dispose of all or most of the cases involving a single drug, device or product. Thus, hundreds or even thousands of cases can be consolidated before a single federal judge (in a “multi-district litigation”) who then attempts to resolve all of the state and federal cases in one settlement or after a limited number of trials. Mass tort litigation provides a potential legal remedy for injured parties who would otherwise not be able to proceed with their own individual cases for any number of reasons.
