What is a Mass Tort?

A mass tort is any wrongful act that injures a person or a group of people. While some torts are accidental, some are caused intentionally by a company, corporation, or manufacturer. If you have been injured because of a tort, you can file a civil lawsuit to seek compensation for damages. These damages can include: 

  • Intentional Torts: A company, corporation, or manufacturer has intentionally caused personal or financial injury to the consumer. 
  • Negligent Torts: A company, corporation, or manufacturer has violated rules or guidelines that resulted in personal or financial harm to the consumer. 
  • Strict Liability Torts: Typically applies to product liability and can be considered a tort when a defective product caused injury even when the manufacturer or store deemed it safe to sell.

What Would Be Considered An Example of A Mass Tort?

An individual tort can result in personal injury, financial loss, or other harm. A mass tort involves a group of people filing a lawsuit against a company, corporation, or manufacturer for physical or financial damage. For example, a commercial plane crash, toxic waste disposal, and pollution originating from industrial factories may all be classified as mass torts since they typically affect a large group of people.
