Omaha Mass Torts Lawyers
A mass tort is a civil action that involves several plaintiffs against one, or multiple corporate defendants in a state or federal court. The popular belief is that mass torts began in the 1960s when a lawyer was called upon to defend multiple injured victims of accidents in regards to airplane accidents.
At Inkelaar Law, our Omaha mass tort lawyers have a tremendous amount of sympathy for all injured victims of any type of accident. Our Omaha accident attorneys believe that if you or a member of your family has been injured due to the negligent actions of another individual, or corporation, the victim(s) may be entitled to compensation for their losses and damages.
Mass Torts Categories
Typically, mass torts are brought by multiple people that have been injured by one single company. These mass torts are then consolidated into one court under a single judge, which allows all individuals to collect similar evidence, and prevent diminishing all resources.
Some mass tort categories that an Omaha mass torts lawyer can assist with include:
Farmers across the country have a high demand for agricultural companies to provide seeds and materials to grow and harvest crops, feed their animals, and perform routine maintenance. When these large companies fail to provide services, these farmers may suffer extreme losses, which threaten their livelihood.
Defective Medical Device Torts
When a patient is implanted with a medical device, and that medical device happens to be defective, it can cause serious injuries and damages to the patient. Such injuries and damages may require further surgery, along with a great amount of psychological damages that an Omaha mass torts attorney may be able to assist with.
Defective Product Torts
Defective product torts may arise when a company releases a product that is defective. This product may result in injuries to its user, such as a child choking on a toy, or a car seat failing to secure a child in an accident.
These torts can occur when multiple people suffer from injuries resulting from the same large-scale accident. These accidents can include anything from auto accidents, truck accidents, bus accidents, train accidents, a building collapsing, or a ship sinking.
A pharmaceutical tort may arise when a group of people are injured by a dangerous medication. These medications may not have proper warning labels, may be defective, or may be fatal if used with other medications. Some common dangerous medications include; Actos, Avandia, Paxil, Prozac, Effexor, Zoloft, Lexapro, Depakote, Yaz and Yasmin, Accutane, Crestor, Pradaxa, Fosamax, and GranuFlo.
This type of tort is caused when a person is exposed to dangerous chemicals, or toxins, therefore resulting in injuries and diseases. If these injuries, or disease, were caused at a place of work, from consumer products, pharmaceuticals, the environment, of from one’s home, these people may be able to recover losses and damages.
