Experienced Attorneys At Calcagno & Associates Successfully Represent Clients In Mass Tort Litigation
If you are seeking compensation for injuries (or even deaths) caused by defective medical devices, dangerous products or defective drugs, you should contact The Law Offices of Calcagno & Associates right away to find out if a mass tort claim is the right approach for your case. A tort is a civil (as opposed to a criminal) wrongdoing committed by a single person which caused an injury to another person. A corporation is considered a legal “person”. Therefore, the person/corporation who caused injury (the defendant) is legally responsible for the pain and suffering that the victim (the plaintiff) experienced as a result of using their defective product. The plaintiff typically sues the defendant to recover damages, like monetary compensation for medical bills or timed missed from work, as a result of their injuries.
Similarly, a mass tort is a single tort that caused injury to many victims, and therefore involves numerous plaintiffs suing one defendant (or several defendants) who acted negligently. In most mass tort cases, each individual plaintiff must be suing based on varying injuries caused by the same defective medical device, dangerous product or defective drug.
The Most Common Dangerous Drug and Medical Products We Cover:
