A mass tort is defined as a civil action involving many plaintiffs who bring a lawsuit against one or more corporate defendants in federal or state court.
Mass tort cases often involve exposure to chemical or other dangerous elements. Plaintiffs in Idaho may have been exposed from pharmaceuticals, such as unsafe drugs, from poorly designed or produced products, or by companies negligently releasing toxins into the environment.
The victim of a mass tort in or around Idaho may have been injured at home or work. Asbestos is an example of a common cause of mass tort litigation.
The AAJ is committed to promoting a fair and effective civil justice system while supporting the work of attorneys representing plaintiffs.
