Unveiling the Hidden Patterns: How Mass Torts Are Changing the Landscape of American Justice

The evolution of tort law has shifted from individual torts, where a single plaintiff accuses one defendant, to mass torts, involving numerous plaintiffs suing one or multiple defendants. The increase in societal complexity has raised the potential for large-scale harm, leading to this shift. Mass torts start when multiple plaintiffs, having experienced similar harm from a defendant's actions, join forces to file a lawsuit. The reasons for this shift include efficiency, equality, and exposure; it consolidates multiple similar claims into one lawsuit, gives plaintiffs lacking individual litigation resources more power against larger entities, and brings defendant's alleged misconduct to public light. Technological advances, rising societal complexity, and potential for industrial errors are expected to further drive the rise of mass torts, necessitating legal reforms, professional evolution, and possible legislative changes for better consumer protection.
