WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT A MASS DISASTER LAWSUIT
- What is a mass disaster or mass tort? A mass disaster or mass tort is a civil lawsuit involving a large number of people who have suffered injuries because of a common wrong by the same defendant. This includes large scale accidents, such as plane, train, or building collapse cases, as well as product liability claims.
- Is there a special court that handles these types of claims?No. A mass disaster claim may be filed in state or federal court, based on jurisdictional rules.
- What damages can I recover in a mass disaster claim? In a mass disaster claim, you will be able to seek damages for lost wages and income, for unreimbursed medical expenses, for physical pain and suffering, and for loss of companionship or consortium.
- How much will it cost me? Most mass disaster litigation is handled on a contingency basis. Accordingly, your attorney will only charge legal fees if you recover compensation for your losses. You generally will have to reimburse your lawyer for any out-of-pocket costs, such as expert witness fees, filing fees, and transcript fees for depositions.
We take all mass disaster lawsuits on a contingent fee basis. We will only charge attorney fees if we recover compensation for your losses.
