At Morgan & Morgan, our attorneys play a pivotal role in shaping the outcome of class action and mass tort lawsuits across the country. In a class action lawsuit, a large number of people who have suffered similar harm join together to sue another entity, usually a company or organization. These cases may involve consumer fraud or defective products. With mass tort litigation, each plaintiff, even though hundreds or thousands of people may have been affected, retains his or her own individual lawsuit. Mass tort litigation typically involves defective medical devices and pharmaceuticals.
