The Dunken Law Firm – Mass Tort Cases

At the Dunken Law Firm, we help victims receive financial compensation for any harms incurred due to the negligence of a company and its dangerous products. Despite clear evidence of severe side effects or other unintended injuries, some products continue to be sold by manufacturers insisting that they are safe for regular use.

If you or a loved one has suffered serious injuries due to the use of a dangerous product, please contact us immediately to discuss your case. Your case is likely not the only one – and by filing a civil action known as a mass tort case, you may be eligible for significant compensation for your damages.

Call us at (713) 554-6780 and see how we can help you today.

What is a Mass Tort?

A mass tort is a civil action that involves multiple people suffering some sort of harm due to the negligence of one or several companies or parties. The most common types of mass tort cases include:

  • Pharmaceutical cases – claims involving drugs that result in severe, dangerous side effects
  • Defective or dangerous product claims – those which involve injuries or even deaths that are caused by defective or otherwise dangerous products
  • Environmental torts – claims in which one company indirectly causes injuries to people through actions which damage the environment

Mass tort cases are similar to class action suits in the quantity of people involved, but in a mass tort, each person is considered an individual plaintiff that must prove their own case. By contrast, in a class action, the entire body of victims is considered one plaintiff.

Mass Tort Cases We Handle

At the Dunken Law Firm, our mass tort lawyers handle multiple types of cases, but we specialize in cases involving:

  • Monsanto, the manufacturer of the popular weed killer, has come under fire for its alleged link to cancer. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, has been linked to the development of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, an aggressive cancer of the lymph nodes. If you or a loved one has developed cancer after regular, repeated use of Roundup, contact us immediately to discuss your options for compensation.
  • Hernia Mesh. Many manufacturers of synthetic hernia meshes has been the target of civil suits due to defects in these products. Intended to provide support in surgeries to repair hernias, many synthetic varieties of the mesh have either failed, migrated, bundled up, and have otherwise been rejected by the body. This results in adverse side effects such as pain, infection, scar tissue, intestinal blockage, and more – leading to additional surgeries in order to relieve the situation.
  • IVC Filters. Patients who are at risk of blood clots in the lungs (a pulmonary embolism) frequently get IVC filters installed in their heart to catch any potential clots before they reach the lungs. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received thousands of adverse reports of specific brands of IVC filters fragmenting, migrating, or otherwise failing inside of the body – causing severe health effects including hemorrhaging and death.
  • Human Trafficking. The rise in human trafficking is at an all-time high. The NHTRC documented 40.3 million victims of human trafficking globally including men, women, and children.
  • Juul Vaping. Nearly 4 million American youths have admitted to vaping and smoking e-cigarettes. Once JUUL was launched, it’s main mission was to improve the lives of addicted smokers by selling e-cigarettes as an alternative to smoking traditional cigarettes. There has been an increasing rate of legal claims against JUUL, which has caused some severe health effects such as increased heart rate, blood pressure, lung disease, and more.

In many of these cases, the manufacturer of the products in question maintain that these products are safe for use, with no known links to detriments in health – despite the evidence to the contrary. We believe that, in refusing to accept liability for their mistakes, these companies are acting in a careless, negligent manner, and deserve to be punished under the fullest extent of civil law.
