What Is a Mass Tort Lawsuit?

A mass tort is a legal action in which many individual lawsuits are filed against a single entity – often a pharmaceutical company or a manufacturer that produced a dangerous or defective device. Mass torts occur when injuries vary in severity, even though they are the result of the same act, event, or product. You can read more details about Mass Tort Lawsuits here.

What Is The Difference Between a Mass Tort and Class-Action Lawsuit?

A Class Action most often involves everybody being treated equally as each claimant is affected in the same way, and typically receive a small amount of money or reward. A good example of this is the Samsung 7 phones which caught on fire. In a Mass Tort Lawsuit, every case is considered individually as each plaintiff experiences different side effects. If successful, a large amount of money is often awarded to each claimant.

What Is A Statute of Limitations?

The statute of limitations exists in both civil and criminal law. It places a time limit from the time an injury is contracted or discovered to the time that a lawsuit or criminal case is filed. If a plaintiff waits too long they may not be able to file a claim. If want to take legal actions it’s important to file a claim as soon as possible. Learn more about statute of limitations here

How Long Does It Typically Take To Resolve Personal Injury Cases

For any type of case, the timeline is typically 18 months – 2 years to obtain a trial setting once the case is filed. If the cases are tried successfully usually the defendants will be inclined to begin settlement discussions.

For Mass Tort cases the settlement process can take as long as a year, as they would then be settling thousands of cases across the country. For single personal injury cases (in medical malpractice or employer negligence for example) the settlement process can be much faster.

Are Settlements Taxed?

In a personal injury action, a person is suing for money damages for the loss of a limb, the loss of a function of the body or even the loss of enjoyment of life. But the key is that you are trying to recover for a loss. Since the recovery is for a loss, receiving that money merely makes you whole, or at least as whole as the law can make you. Per the law, and the IRS, compensation for your loss does not bestow any profit upon you and is therefore NOT taxable.

How Does Select Justice Protect My Personal Information?
