Mass Tort Lawyers in New York
Making Your Voice Heard in Court
When numerous people have claims against a single product or device, their cases may be consolidated into a mass tort, a single action, as opposed to individual lawsuits. This can serve various purposes. Combining all the claims can lend strength to the case against the defendant, not only in the evidence presented, but in the resources allocated to prosecute the matter. It also keeps the courts from being overwhelmed by dozens, hundreds, or even thousands of similar claims against a single product.
At The Sultzer Law Group P.C., we handle mass torts in New York and across the U.S., including:
- Opioid Cases: Our trial attorneys are currently working with cities, states, and counties that have been affected by the opioid crisis, seeking accountability by bringing at-fault drug manufacturers to court.
- Toxic Torts: Our toxic tort practice is aimed at the representation of individuals and jurisdictions who have suffered harm from toxic substances such as lead, benzene, Roundup weed killer, and opioids.
- Product Liability Matters: If a consumer product or medical device is defective or improperly designed, it may cause significant harm. We handle mass torts against manufacturers, distributors, and other at-fault parties for their defective and dangerous products.
Our trial attorneys have experience both defending and prosecuting mass torts, giving us a clear picture of the methods and motives on both sides of the docket. We believe every voice should be heard and that a single person can make a difference in a case against a large corporation that has caused harm to many.

What Is a Mass Tort?
A mass tort is a civil action that involves the consolidation of many individual lawsuits into a single action. This applies in cases where numerous plaintiffs have suffered harm from the same device or product. They are consolidated into a single case against a defendant or defendants.
Common examples of mass torts include cases against:
- Manufacturers of defective products
- Manufacturers of medical devices
- Manufacturers of drugs (prescription and over the counter)
- Citizens of a geographic area who suffered from toxic exposure
Class Action Vs. Mass Tort
Mass torts are often confused with class actions because they involve the consolidation of multiple lawsuits into a single case. They differ, however, in that each plaintiff’s claim will receive individual attention with regard to the specific damages suffered. In a class action, all the plaintiffs are essentially treated as one plaintiff. Another key difference is that class actions are often more specific than mass torts, involving the same or similar harm, whereas there is some leeway in mass torts regarding the type or extent of injuries experienced.
