What’s the Difference between Mass Torts and Class Action Lawsuits?

When an expectant mother takes Depakote, the risk of serious birth defects is unfortunately high. These birth injuries can require substantial treatment for the child, sometimes necessitating long-term or even life-long treatment. As a result, a family may consider pursuing financial compensation through a lawsuit to ease their financial burden.

Financial compensation from a lawsuit can’t bring back the good health of a child or erase the anger of a family. However, it can help support the financial burdens that often result from these injuries. To learn more about your options if your child was born with a birth defect and you took Depakote while pregnant, contact a Depakote lawyer from Williams Hart today by calling 800-761-3187.

Class Action Lawsuits

When victims of dangerous drugs meet others who have suffered similar injuries, they may band together against the party responsible for their pain and suffering. In the case of Depakote injuries, these families may join together in a class action lawsuit against the drug manufacturer. However, these lawsuits require compensation to be spread across participants in the class action suit, often ignoring the individual needs of each affected family.

Mass Torts

Mass torts are only similar to class action lawsuits in terms of scope. While many people may sue a drug manufacturer at the same time, Depakote mass torts focus carefully on the individual needs and situations of each family. As a result, the family can ask for the compensation they specifically need.
