Rockford, IL Mass Torts Attorneys

Boone County Mass Torts Lawyer

Lawyers for Injury Cases Involving Multiple Victims in Winnebago County

Mass torts are personal injury lawsuits that result from a negligent or willful act of wrongdoing that causes widespread damages that impact numerous victims. After a number of plaintiffs emerge, a court may decide to consolidate these cases into one mass legal action against the defendant, allowing the plaintiffs' attorneys to pool their resources, saving time and expenses. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a case of widespread negligence that has become, or may become, a mass tort action, it is important to work with attorneys with specific experience with these types of cases who also practice locally where the consolidation has occurred.

Mass Tort Litigation in Illinois

There are several types of personal injury cases that can become mass torts. Some of the most common include:

Is a Mass Tort Lawsuit the Same as a Class Action Lawsuit?

While there are similarities, mass torts are not the same as class action lawsuits. Both actions involve multiple plaintiffs against the same defendant(s). The main difference is that, in class action lawsuits, there is one single case with numerous plaintiffs who are all treated equally and awarded the same amount of damages. In a mass tort, each plaintiff files their own lawsuit, and the amount of damages awarded may vary widely between cases depending on the specific facts of each case.
