What Is A Mass Tort?

Mass torts occur when careless or wrongful actions injure many people in a similar manner. Often, mass torts are associated with products released on the market that prove harmful to people who use them.

Attorney Paul Dominguez assists groups of victims who have been harmed by a defective product. Mass torts effectively allow multiple victims to pursue litigation so that the proper defendants are held accountable for the harm that they cause. If you or a loved one has suffered a severe side effect after taking a defective drug, or if you have suffered complications from a defective surgical device, you should retain a skilled lawyer to help you seek damages.

Ongoing Mass Tort Claims

In New Mexico, product manufacturers may be held strictly liable for any harm that results from a product that poses an unreasonable risk of injury, when that product is used as intended. Many medications include a risk of side effects, some of which are more serious than others. However, when drug manufacturers fail to warn patients of a known risk or put a medication on the market with a side effect that is more dangerous than it needs to be, those manufacturers are responsible for the injuries that result. Mass tort litigation has been initiated for claims associated with the following potentially dangerous medications and drugs:

  • Xarelto
  • Taxotere
  • Invokana
  • Oral contraceptives Yaz and Yasmin
  • Diabetes drug Avandia
  • Fosamax
