WHAT IS MASS TORT?

A mass tort is a civil action involving several plaintiffs against one or a few defendants. These lawsuits are often confused with class action suits. While they are similar, mass tort actions are filed individually as opposed to collectively. Mass torts differ from personal injury suits, too. Mass torts involve multiple claims, but they are centered on a single product. The basic facts of the claims are comparable and the individual claims are tied together financially.

Mass tort litigation is incredibly complicated, because there are so many issues involved, such as:

  • These cases can be filed at the state or federal level
  • They can include large numbers of plaintiffs and/or defendants
  • There are different state laws that dictate levels of damages and what kind are valid
  • States also have different statutes of limitations and levels of liability
  • Finally, mass tort cases can reveal potential third-party issues

WHAT IS YOUR MASS TORT CASE WORTH?

Mass tort claims can allow victims and families to recover compensation for the following damages:

  • 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 worth. Each case is different and no reputable attorney would guarantee a specific compensation amount. But the Denver mass tort attorneys at Burg Simpson are able to give you an honest evaluation of your claim and provide you with an educated assessment of what your claim may be worth.

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

  • The nature and extent of the injury
  • The nature and extent of medical treatment received
  • The nature and extent of preexisting medical conditions
  • The nature and extent of the liability of each person involved
  • The ability of the injured person to return to work
  • The need for future medical and other life care needs
  • The location where the injury occurred

When someone is unable to go back 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.

Which state an injury occurs in can be a huge factor in the value of a claim, as well. The laws vary wildly by state. Some states protect their residents better than others. A few allow unlimited recovery of non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering. Other states severely limit that type of recovery. State laws regarding negligence, comparative fault, and other liability issues may also affect the value of the claim. It is critical to evaluate all of these factors carefully before filing a lawsuit, which makes securing knowledgeable legal representation that much more important.

HOW LONG DO MASS TORT CASES TAKE?

There is honestly no way to know. Sometimes a settlement can be reached quickly without even filing suit. Most of the time, cases will not be settled until very close to trial, which can be a year or more after the initial filing.

If we win, and a judgment is entered, the defendant will sometimes either pay or settle at that time, but the defendant will often appeal the judgment, in which case the ultimate recovery could be delayed for months or years.

If you lose at trial, you have the right to appeal, which we can help with. Again, the process can take anywhere from a few months to several years. If you do win the appeal, you will likely need to go through another trial, and potentially, another appeal. It could take several years to obtain compensation you deserve for your injuries.

That is why you need to visit our Denver mass tort lawyers for help before it is too late.

HOW MUCH WILL A MASS TORT CASE COST ME?

We offer a free, no-obligation case evaluation to those who have been hurt by any kind of product. We 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 done on a contingency basis, which means that our fee is determined as a percentage of your recovery. We only get paid if we obtain a recovery for you. If we don’t, then you owe us nothing. We also advance the money for all relevant litigation costs, such as filing fees, medical records retrieval, and expert costs. Burg Simpson receives reimbursement for these costs out of any recovery. If you decide to work with us, all of this will be explained in a written fee agreement. You have nothing to lose, contact us right now!
