Mass Torts

Illinois Mass Torts Class Action Attorneys

Mass torts are similar to class action lawsuits yet not exactly the same. In class action lawsuits, a single suit is filed on behalf of a group of “similarly situated” plaintiffs. Class action plaintiffs sign away their rights to individual lawsuits when they join the class. With mass torts, multiple similar cases are combined into a single trial, but each case is treated individually. The benefit of mass tort lawsuits is that plaintiffs can save time and money by pooling legal resources.

Mass torts cases are challenging in part because of the number of plaintiffs and the potential for future plaintiffs to emerge.
