WHAT DOES MASS TORT MEAN?

Legally speaking, a mass tort is a civil action that involves multiple plaintiffs against one or a few defendants. Mass torts involve multiple claims, but are focused on a single defective product. The details of the claims are comparable and the individual claims are financially tied together.

Mass tort litigation is very complex, time-consuming, and incredibly expensive because of all the issues involved, such as:

  • These cases can be filed at either the state or federal level.
  • They can include large numbers of plaintiffs and/or defendants.
  • State laws vary wildly, and often impose limits on damages levels, and what types are valid or relevant. States also have varying statutes of limitations and levels of liability that can seriously influence a case.

If a prescription drug or defective medical device has injured you or a loved one, contact our Phoenix mass tort lawyers in Arizona at 602-777-7000.

WHAT IS YOUR MASS TORT CLAIM WORTH?

Mass tort claims can allow victims and families to recover compensation for several types of damages from prescription drugs and medical devices that have injured them, including:

  • Medical expenses.
  • Lost income and future earnings.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • Emotional damages.
  • Funeral expenses, if applicable.

There are several factors that determine what a mass tort claim is ultimately worth. Each case is unique. Burg Simpson’s Phoenix mass tort attorneys will offer a candid assessment of your claim and explain what you can expect.

Some of the relevant factors that may affect a mass tort claim include:

  • The origin and degree of the injury.
  • The type and degree of medical treatment received.
  • The type and degree of preexisting medical conditions.
  • The type and degree of the responsibility of each involved party.
  • The ability – or inability – of the injured party to return to work.
  • The need for future medical and other life care needs.
  • Where the injury occurred.

When someone is not able to return to work because of an injury, it can cause a significant economic loss that may be worth tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on the person’s occupation and the remaining life of that person’s career.

Don’t wait! Call Burg Simpson Arizona right away at 602-777-7000 so we can help evaluate your case.

HOW MUCH DOES A MASS TORT CLAIM COST?

We offer a no-cost, no-obligation evaluation of your case. Our lawyers in Arizona can even take a look at your medical records as we conduct the necessary review to determine whether we can help. Our mass tort fee agreements are put together on a contingency basis. What that means is our fee is determined as a simple percentage of your recovery. We don’t get paid if we don’t secure a recovery for you. We also advance the money for all relevant costs of litigation, such as filing fees, medical record retrieval, and expert costs. We will collect our reimbursement for these costs later after we secure your recovery.

HOW LONG DO MASS TORT CLAIMS TAKE?

Settlements can sometimes be reached relatively quickly without ever having to file a lawsuit.

That being said, most of the time settlements will not be taken seriously until the eve of trial, which can be months or even years after the original filing of the lawsuit.

If we do win your case, and a judgment is then entered, the defendant will either pay or settle immediately. However, defendants frequently appeal these initial judgments, which can then delay the ultimate recovery for months or years.

On the other hand, if you lose, you can appeal, a process we will help guide you through. This process, too, can take anywhere from a few months to several years. If you do win on appeal, you will probably need to go back to court, and maybe even another appeal. This is why you need a trial lawyer by your side the entire time!
