Who can join a mass tort lawsuit?
Any person whose injury details are relevant to a mass tort lawsuit could join the lawsuit. The legal team connected to the mass tort case interviews people who might be candidates for the mass tort lawsuit. Each potential plaintiff shares with the investigating team how their case connects to the mass tort. They must support their claims with evidence, including medical records that show injuries or harm.
How the defendant’s actions or omissions caused the injuries or harm must also align with causation in the mass tort lawsuit.
