Mass Tort Lawyers in Louisiana – We’ve Won Over $10 Billion for our Clients 

When a dangerous product is used by millions of people, there is the potential for thousands to be injured, become ill, or die. In personal injury cases involving many plaintiffs, courts often allow the claims to be filed as a class action or mass tort action.

Mass Tort Neblett, Beard and Arsenault

While these group claims are similar, there are important differences. In a class action, all plaintiffs are represented by one individual and will receive a share of a single award. In a mass tort action, however, each plaintiff files as an individual and his compensation will be determined based on his specific needs.

At Neblett, Beard & Arsenault, we represent plaintiffs in mass tort actions against drug makers, medical device manufacturers, and any corporation or government agency responsible for harming consumers.

What Is a Mass Tort?

A tort is a wrongful act, intentional or not, that results in harm to another person and does not fall primarily under a criminal statute. In other words, a mass tort is an act of carelessness or negligence that leaves many people injured, ill, or dead. It is the basis of all personal injury law and results in monetary damages paid to the plaintiff rather than criminal penalties to the perpetrator, although punitive damages may also be awarded in order to punish deliberate or outrageously irresponsible acts.

When a single tort—such as the manufacture and release of a dangerous drug—results in injury to many victims, a court may decide that all injured parties may file under a single claim, called a mass tort. For a plaintiff, filing under a mass tort claim can lead to a much quicker resolution than filing an individual claim, as the investigation and preparation that goes into a case may be shared among attorneys.

Our Experience With Mass Tort Cases

At Neblett, Beard & Arsenault, our attorneys often lead the way in mass tort and class action claims. Attorney Richard Arsenault has served on several mass tort cases including Vioxx, Ortho Evra, Zimmer, and DePuy. We are currently involved in dozens of mass torts for dangerous drugs, defective medical devices, and consumer protection.

Defective Medical Devices Lawsuits

Many medical devices are rushed to consumers before being fully tested for safety. Some of the defective devices we represent clients against include:

Metal-On-Metal Hip Implants
Hip replacement surgeries using one of many metal-on-metal designs have resulted in painful complications, revision surgeries, and blood poisoning.

Hernia Mesh
Many complications associated with hernia repair using surgical mesh have been reported to the FDA, including pain, infection, adhesion, and perforation.
