Fighting for the Injured Since 1922
When a product or corporation leads to the harm of hundreds or thousands, the courts will designate their lawsuits a “mass tort,” or litigation against a few defendants from numerous plaintiffs with similar or identical complaints. Pennsylvania has become the center of mass tort litigation in recent years, with Johnson & Johnson’s Risperdal litigation becoming centralized in Philadelphia.
What you need to know is that a mass tort is not a class action lawsuit.
Mass torts require that each plaintiff find their own attorney and file their own complaint against the defendant. Class actions force you to sign yourself up as 1 of 100s of plaintiffs for a single case. Mass torts might mean you’re part of a group of claims—but your attorney will be handling your case solely on your behalf.
Since 1922, Handler, Henning & Rosenberg LLP has been one of the Pennsylvania’s premier injury law firms. Our experience with mass tort litigation has allowed us to secure millions for people who have been harmed by dangerous products or pharmaceuticals. If you’ve been harmed by the negligent behavior or manufacturing of a corporation, you deserve an attorney who knows how to go head-to-head against the most well-prepared companies in the world.
