ASK LLP and its attorneys have represented thousands of people across the United States recovering millions of dollars in compensation for their injuries in large, complex mass tort cases. Our mass tort team helps individuals navigate these highly complex litigations against some of the largest corporations in the world.
Cases where individuals have been injured are known as a “tort.” Occasionally, a large corporation or other entity engages in courses of action that harm hundreds or thousands of individuals. This type of case is often referred to as a “mass tort.” As explained by the Federal Judicial Center at 342-344, a mass tort emerges “when an event or series of related events injure a large number of people or damage their property.” Mass torts may arise after a faulty product causes a large number of injuries. They may be the result of corporate negligence resulting in undisclosed pharmaceutical side effects, defective medical devices, wildfires, toxic pollution, widespread child abuse, or foodborne illness.
