At Alvendia, Kelly & Demarest, our team of professionals has the resources and experience required to stand up for our clients, regardless of the size of the case.
Class Action vs. Mass Tort: What’s the Difference?
When more than one plaintiff come against the same organization or group, they are often placed together to reduce the number of lawsuits at hand, either through mass tort or class action. The main difference between the two lies within the injury or cause.
In a class action lawsuit, each plaintiff involved in the case has experienced the same injury from the same defendant. For example, a class action lawsuit against a pharmaceutical company involves multiple patients, all experiencing the same injury or complaint.
In a mass tort lawsuit, although all of the individuals have been injured by the same defendant, their injuries may differ. For example, if that same pharmaceutical company caused multiple injuries to multiple individuals that differed in symptoms and types, a mass tort lawsuit could be more appropriate.
Class Action & Mass Tort Claims Require Skilled Attorneys
