Mississippi Mass Tort Lawyer
Protecting the Rights of Consumers for 35+ Years
A mass tort is a single tort, or wrongful act, that results in injury to
a large number of victims. Whereas class action lawsuits involve all of
the victims suing a defendant together in one lawsuit, in mass torts,
the victims all sue the defendant separately in individual lawsuits seeking
compensation for the defendant’s negligence.
Richard Schwartz & Associates, P.A. is committed to protecting the
rights of consumers in top mass tort cases. Our firm is currently reviewing
cases related to
defective drugs and medical devices. If you or a loved one has suffered injury as a result
of a dangerous pharmaceutical or defective medical device, contact our
Mississippi attorneys to see if you have a case.
Examples of recent defective drug/medical device lawsuits include:
3M Earplugs - Military issued earplugs with a known defect that causes the noise cancelling
devices to loosen over time, causing permanent damage
