Mass Tort vs. Class Action- What Is The Difference?
Due to their similarities, these two types of litigation are often confused. Both provide a certain amount of judicial relief, but there are key differences between the two:
- Class Action: A class action is a lawsuit is filed on behalf of a large group of people. One individual represents a collective group of plaintiffs with similar damages or harm. The proceeds from the lawsuit are shared among the plaintiffs.
- Mass Tort: A mass tort claim is similar to a class action in that a large group of people has been injured. However, each individual retains their individual claim. One attorney represents numerous plaintiffs and may share the investigation and preparation work.
How Are Mass Tort Cases Resolved?
It's true that most cases settle before going to a jury, but it can be hard to get a good settlement without the pressure of pending litigation. That is why it is extremely important that you hire an experienced trial attorney. At Wilhoit Law Office, we have a long history of successful litigation. William H. Wilhoit, like his father and grandfathers before him, is a skilled litigator. We always attempt to resolve cases through negotiation or mediation and settlement, but when trial is necessary to protect your rights, we are prepared.
Consultations are free and cases are handled on a contingency basis. We won't charge you until we've obtained compensation for you.
