What Is a Mass Tort?
A mass tort is a wrongful act or omission that harms or injures multiple people. Many mass torts involve defective or dangerous products like pharmaceutical drugs and polluted water.
Mass torts allow multiple plaintiffs to file a lawsuit against the negligent corporation that caused them harm. Unlike class-action lawsuits, in which one settlement is divided equally between each plaintiff, mass tort settlements are determined on a case-by-case basis, meaning plaintiffs are able to collect compensation for their individual damages.
Mass Torts We Handle
At the Law Office of Scott H. Green, P.C., we have represented clients across St. Louis County in a wide variety of mass torts. Our attorney has been practicing law in Missouri since 1993, making him the experienced advocate you want in your corner.
Many mass tort claims are filed against drug manufacturers when a product is recalled. Pharmaceutical drugs can be removed from the market for a multitude of reasons, including:
Hazardous side effects
We have represented many clients who have filed mass tort claims against the manufacturers of Zantac (ranitidine), an over-the-counter medication used to treat or relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, GERD, and gastric ulcers. The FDA recalled all of its products in April 2020 after it was found to contain high levels of NDMA, a likely carcinogen. NDMA has been linked to multiple forms of cancer, including bladder, stomach, esophageal, liver, and pancreatic cancers.
A dangerous or defective product can result in serious injury, illness, or even death. When you need to seek compensation for damage caused by a dangerous product, contact us at the Law Office of Scott H. Green, P.C. Our experience includes products such as infant formula and herbicides like Paraquat and Roundup.
Infant formula has been linked to necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC), a gastrointestinal disease affecting premature infants. Many parents have filed lawsuits against brands like Similac and Enfamil, claiming manufacturers failed to warn them and medical providers about the risk.
Paraquat & Roundup
Both of these herbicides have been found to be highly toxic and therefore have faced multiple lawsuits from customers. Paraquat has been linked to Parkinson’s disease, and Roundup has been connected to Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. To find out whether you have a case against the manufacturers of either of these products, schedule a free consultation with our attorney today.
Camp Lejeune Water Contamination
From 1953 to 1987, the water at Camp Lejeune (a military base in Jacksonville, North Carolina) was contaminated with dangerous chemicals. Many of those who had contact with the contaminated drinking water later developed one or multiple medical conditions, some of which include:
Aplastic anemia and other myelodysplastic syndromes
