Automobile vehicle accidents are common in the United States. We don’t advise dealing with the insurer on your own. Before you do anything, you should have a knowledgeable accident lawyer on your side. Our attorneys will work hard for you to get you the compensation you deserve. They can either pursue a mass tort litigation against the defendant or opt for a class-action lawsuit. However, while both of these are similar, they are not entirely the same. And so depending on the circumstances surrounding a particular case, one or the other might be a better-suited procedure for the plaintiffs to obtain justice. But, in order to be able to make the right choice, it is important to understand the nuances of these two forms of civil action. So, let’s first have a look at them individually, and then analyze the similarities and differences between them.
In a class-action lawsuit, the injury suffered by the plaintiff is likely to be very specific. Hence, it is easier for a single group of attorneys to represent the facts of several plaintiffs. However, in a mass tort litigation, the plaintiffs may have varying types of injuries, even though the defendant might be the same. So, here it allows for a broader set of injuries because it has a broader scope for compensation. Additionally, all members of the class must be notified of the particulars of the case. They must also be given sufficient time to consent or withdraw consent for their participation. Additionally, the main representative of the class must file a motion to represent the class and also prove that a class action lawsuit is the best possible option for those involved.
