Defective Medical Devices
Some of the most common mass torts involve defective or dangerous medical devices. We know how serious these cases can be, often resulting in lifelong injuries and damages. As manufacturers often develop thousands of the same defective product, countless people can suffer injuries. This is why a mass tort can often be brought against the manufacturer or company, consolidating each injury victim's case. Knowing how to craft a strong case within a mass tort is crucial.

In addition to defective medical devices, dangerous drugs are another leading reason for mass torts. Similarly, these cases can be extremely complex and require a heavy element of proof.

Mass torts can also arise from any type of defective or toxic consumer product. Our Harrisburg mass tort lawyers are well-equipped to handle any and all consumer product injury claims. Consumer product claims may involve anything from kitchen appliances to hazardous materials to vehicle defects.
