Mass Torts

You May Not Be Alone. Contact The Villages Mass Torts Law Firm to See if You Can Join a Claim

Accidents are an unfortunate part of life in Florida and across the country.  Although these incidents are often specific to a particular single event, there are many situations in which hundreds or more people are injured in the same way or by the same defective product. In such cases, harmed individuals have the right to join together and seek justice in a single legal action instead of going it alone. These are called “Mass Tort” claims, and Babiarz Law Firm is here to help. 

The Villages mass torts attorney Tim Babiarz has been helping people injured in various types of accidents for more than two decades. He understands how to build the strongest possible case for the people he represents and has a strong track record of results in court and in litigation.  Mr. Babiarz has been described as a tenacious litigator and skilled negotiator who has been hailed by clients for providing comprehensive legal services. 

If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to seek the advice of a seasoned personal injury attorney. At the Babiarz Law Firm, we will take the time to understand your unique individual situation and develop a legal strategy designed to meet your needs and accomplish your goals.

What Are Mass Torts?

A “tort” is the legal term for an action - or inaction - that causes harm. A “mass tort” occurs when that harm impacts many people.

Mass torts are particularly common in cases involving defective products. Whether it is a malfunctioning household appliance or a poorly designed medical device or drug, faulty products can wreak havoc on unsuspecting users. 

Other types of mass torts include:

  • Toxic torts: These cases typically involve claims by people who have all been injured due to exposure to harmful chemicals, whether it is on the job or in their homes.
  • Disaster torts: These cases are typically brought by a group of people impacted by the same natural disaster, like a hurricane, or fire, or a man-made disaster like an oil spill.

A mass tort allows many people injured by the same product to seek compensation from those responsible in a single action. It is similar in that way to a class action, but it generally does not come with the same strict requirements that class members have to meet in order to join the action. A mass tort also allows for a more individualized approach to each plaintiff’s claims than a class action lawsuit.

Why You Need a Mass Torts Lawyer 

Anyone considering starting or joining a mass torts lawsuit is well advised to seek the advice of an experienced attorney.

Companies facing mass tort litigation defend these cases vigorously and work aggressively to keep them out of court. This includes mounting a comprehensive legal defense and, in some cases, pushing to resolve these cases in settlements for pennies on the dollar.

A seasoned The Villages mass tort attorney can help you build the strongest possible defense and ensure that your rights and interests are protected in any settlement discussions.
