Mass Torts & Product Liability
In some cases, you may be subject to a harm that affects many other Americans and, specifically, your friends and neighbors in south Louisiana. In these cases, the claims of many people may relate to a single product or incident. In fact, the claims may all be grouped together in a single class action lawsuit so that each case is subject to the same law and the same facts. Joining a class action lawsuit can be an efficient and effective way to achieve justice for you and your fellow victims.
Mass torts and product liabilities claims may relate to:
- Breach of warranty
- Consumer scams
- Design defects
- Manufacturing defects
- Product defects
- Mass disasters
- Mass toxic torts
However, even though all of the claims in a class action lawsuit may look similar on the surface, each individual harm is worth independently investigating to determine whether the victim should join the class action lawsuit. Unlike many national law firms, St. Martin & Bourque does not view its clients as part of a group. Instead, we look at each case individually so that we can give each client the time and attention he or she deserves – our goal is to make sure that each individual client achieves the best possible result.
These types of cases often involve formidable opponents, like multinational conglomerates and insurance companies, who will try to minimize your recovery and discount your suffering. The team at St. Martin & Bourque is not only prepared to dive into the facts of your individual case, we’re experienced at representing the people along the Gulf Coast against challenging and formidable opponents.
In these situations, it’s important that you take the right steps from the very beginning. As soon as you’ve suffered harm or injury, please contact the team at St. Martin & Bourque.
