Okemos Mass Tort Attorneys

Representing Injured Clients in Michigan

Though most lawsuits involve just one person seeking damages, some types of lawsuits – such as class actions and mass torts – involve a large group of people all affected by the same problem and all seeking damages collectively.

Being involved in a class action or mass tort means that you have suffered an injury or loss alongside several other people. But what is the difference between a class action and a mass tort? The primary difference is in how the plaintiffs are treated. In a class action lawsuit, all the members are represented by a class representative. In a mass tort, on the other hand, each member must prove wrongdoing individually. If you believe you may have a mass tort claim, you might be wondering where to begin. White Law PLLC is here to help you navigate the process and represent you in your fight for justice.

To learn more about your rights regarding a mass tort claim, call our Okemos litigation attorneys at (517) 316-1195.

When Does a Case Become a Mass Tort?

In order for a class action to take place, the case must meet certain criteria. Many lawsuits that do not quite meet these requirements become mass torts instead. In a mass tort, it is possible that each individual member experienced slightly varying circumstances. For example, in a defective product mass tort, each individual may have been injured in a different way or experienced varying degrees of injury. This would disqualify the case from being classified as a class action, and instead would qualify it as a mass tort.

Many mass torts arise out of:

  • Medical device injuries
  • Defective drugs
  • Product liability matters
  • Toxic contamination

How to Take Part in a Mass Tort

It is possible that you qualify to take part in a mass tort without even realizing it. However, if you have any reason to believe that you have been wrongfully injured by someone else’s negligence, it is important that you reach out to a personal injury attorney. When you call White Law PLLC and explain your situation during a consultation, we can determine whether or not your case could qualify for a mass tort.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • I can't recommend White Law highly enough to any and all who need legal representation!

    “People v. V.R. (2014) - "Recently I was lucky enough to have been represented by White Law PLLC, in a legal matter that I hadn't had any success with in handling on my own. I am so thankful and appreciative in every respect on their handling of my case. From the very start I felt nothing but confidence that I was in good hands. The professionalism and respect I was given in my case helped put my mind at ease on a matter I had been dealing with for over 15 years. In a very short amount of time, once I had James White representing me my matter was successfully resolved and my case is now closed! Thanks to his and the entire firms dedication in helping me get a very large part of my life back on track and my future much brighter. I can't recommend White Law highly enough to any and all who need legal representation! Sincerely and appreciatively, V.R." ”

  • Great team of lawyers here who are well connected with prosecutors in the area that look out for their client's best interests.

    “Great team of lawyers here who are well connected with prosecutors in the area that look out for their client's best interests. They also provide alternative pricing for those who can't afford the top lawyers in the firm (and the top lawyers still work with the associates despite the lower price), so yeah great law firm.”

  • White Law PLLC saved my family's lives

    “My wife and I were arrested in October of 2014 on drug manufacturing and gun possession charges because we were growing medical marijuana in our home. My wife was charged with five felony counts and I was charged with eight felony counts. We were both looking at 15 years. Jamie got both my wife's and my felony charges down to two and the gun charges dropped. The gun charges carried a two year mandatory prison sentence. In the end, my wife and I both got 18 month probation. Jamie and everyone in his office were so nice and answered all of our questions any time we called. I recommend Jamie White and White Law PLLC for any legal problems. They saved my family's lives.”

  • Thank you White Law for what you did!

    “People v. A.D. (2014) - "My son was facing his third gun charge. His first lawyer died on Christmas Day. Jamie White took over the case when it was already in a late phase of the case. My son was serving a year from a prior gun charge and Mr. White had almost all of the charges thrown out. My son was sentenced to nine months with time served, nothing except a mark on his record. Mr. White got him from being in jail with a third gun charge looking at 10 to 15 years with habitual to a plea to a gun charge with time served for nine months. Thank you White Law for what you did!"”

  • The outcome of my case was the one I was looking for and I highly recommend this firm!

    “I am from Chicago Illinois and Jamie didn’t hesitate to take my case. He got it done and over with in a very timely manner and with out me having to make multiple trips to and from Michigan. The outcome of my case was the one I was looking for and I highly recommend this firm!”
