Minnesota Mass Tort Litigation Lawyer
Mass tort litigation refers to a lawsuit where many different victims are up against one company. Mass tort litigation often occurs in defective product and dangerous drug lawsuits in which the manufacturer is liable for several different injuries that their product has caused.
If you or someone you love has been impacted by a defective medical product, dangerous drug, or injury due to an environmental problem, work related issue or negligence in a public setting, then you may want to consider a mass tort lawsuit.
Strength in Numbers
Mass tort litigation follows a different set of rules when compared to individual personal injury lawsuits. First of all, the victims are all seen as one person and in most instances, the compensation will be split evenly between those that have been injured. For example, if you have suffered a back problem due to a defective medical product, but someone else has died because of it, both parties will receive similar compensation.
Under mass tort litigation, you are not going up against the manufacturer or company on your own. You will have a whole group of people with you and for many, this can be a little easier and less intimidating. Regardless of whether you file an individual claim or through a mass tort, you can be assured that the legal team at Teplinsky Law Group will be behind you every step of the way.

Standing up for Your Legal Rights
Many defective products and dangerous drugs will cause similar injuries and pain to a number of different people. For example, Yaz, Ocella, and Yasmin are three forms of oral contraceptives that have been known to cause blood clots. Thousands of women have been impacted by these blood clots, which can cause heart attacks, strokes, and pulmonary embolism. Rather than tackle each problem on its own, the pharmaceutical company responsible is on trial for hundreds of cases.
Mass tort litigation usually occurs because the company or manufacturer has made an error in the manufacturing of the product or because the company has not provided adequate warnings and safety precautions on their product.
