Omaha Mass Tort Lawyer
We Can Answer Your Questions About a Harmful Product
Mass tort lawsuits come about when multiple plaintiffs have been injured by the same defendant. Often, a mass tort is filed due to a defective product or drug that injures a wide range of people. During mass tort litigation, multiple lawyers represent different injury victims in their cases. The benefit of joining together in a mass tort is that whatever information is discovered can be shared with all the plaintiffs, helping them receive fair verdicts.
When you have been injured by a product, you may feel angry and confused, especially if it was a drug or medical device that was supposed to help you, not harm you. But chances are, you’re not the only one. It’s important to consult with an experienced attorney to see if you have grounds for legal action. At Bottlinger Law L.L.C. we have experience with mass tort claims. Contact us today at (402) 505-8234 to discuss your case.
Why a Mass Tort Lawyer Is Important
Mass tort cases are handled differently than regular personal injury cases. You don’t want to be bunched together with other plaintiffs and have no voice in your own case. Your settlement or jury verdict should be appropriate for your degree of injury – no one else’s.
Being injured can mean physical pain, hefty medical bills, and loss of wages. It may impact you for the rest of your life. In order to get a fair settlement, you need a lawyer who will care for your needs and think of your individual case details.
Common Mass Tort Claims
Some situations lead to mass tort claims more often, including:
- Defective medical devices (for example, IVC filters)
- Harmful prescription drugs
- Harmful products (Monsanto’s weed-killer Roundup and Johnson & Johnson’s baby powder are two famous examples)
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Mass transit accidents
- Environmental disasters (for example, a chemical spill)
The common thread in mass torts is the fact that more than one person has been injured due to one company’s negligence.
In a class action case, the payout will be much smaller due to the fact that the settlement is divided between all plaintiffs equally. However, in a mass tort case, the payout will be individually calculated for each plaintiff based on their injuries. Mass tort cases are complex, which is why you need an experienced attorney at your side to guide you through the process.
