When a few people are injured in the same manner by the same product, it may be just a coincidence. When hundreds or thousands of people are injured or put at risk of injury because a product is defective, the circumstances are different. Mass torts involve large numbers of people who are seeking compensation from the same party for the same kinds of damages.
If you were harmed by a defective product, a South Carolina mass tort lawsuit lawyer with George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers can see if you qualify to join a mass tort case. We will review relevant records and represent you throughout all proceedings if you hire us.

What to Expect When You File a Mass Tort Lawsuit
Many people refer to class action and mass tort as the same type of legal action. However, there are significant differences. Class action cases take place when a group of plaintiffs files one lawsuit against one defendant and divides the winnings amongst themselves.
Alternatively, in a mass tort, each plaintiff in the group files his own lawsuit. However, these lawsuits are later consolidated to make proceedings simpler for the court.
Like other personal injury cases, mass torts go through a certain legal process, and how long they take to resolve ranges from months to years. Still, this process usually consists of:
- A lawyer reviewing years of your medical records
- Identifying consistencies of injuries between you and the other plaintiffs
- Bringing a federal lawsuit
- Going to bellwether trials. The court often prefers to try the most serious cases in the group to get an idea of how the rest of the cases will turn out.
- Reaching a settlement
Your mass tort lawsuit can settle at any time during court proceedings.
