Mass Tort Lawyer Washington, D.C.If you have been injured or become ill because of another person or party’s negligence that you think or know has caused harm in the same way to others, you may benefit from discussing your situation with a mass tort lawyer in Washington, D.C.

A tort is a civil claim that may be made when a person or other party or parties commits an act that causes a personal injury. In legalese, a personal injury is when a person (or party) causes another person to become injured or ill. The term “injury” encompasses injury and illnesses of the body, mind and/or emotions, as opposed to when property is injured, i.e. damaged. In colloquial English, Tort claims are commonly referred to as personal injury claims.

If you think you have a tort or mass tort claim, a Washington, D.C. lawyer may be able to help you.

Mass Torts and Class Actions

A mass tort is commonly referred to as a class-action lawsuit even though they are technically different kinds of actions. A mass tort is different from a class action in that a mass tort involves the complaints of individual plaintiffs where they each receive their own separate trials.

inA class action is one in which a single act committed by one person causes injury to a whole group of people (even though the group may not have any prior knowledge of each other before finding out about their similar injuries and they may never meet others in this group) where the group has one trial for all of the plaintiffs.

If you think that your injury or illness is reason for a mass tort, discussing your situation with a Washington, D.C. lawyer may help you to determine whether or not you have a valid claim. 

Types of Torts

Causes of torts can be from another party’s negligence, recklessness or malice. Personal injury claims often are the result of one or more party’s negligence but can be because of other things. Things such as defamation and slander are often looked at as deliberate acts that were executed for the purpose of harming a person’s reputation.

If you have been injured by another party’s negligence, recklessness or malice, a mass tort lawyer in Washington, D.C. may be able to help. 

It is more common for tort charges to be brought about in civil claims rather than in criminal courts. The plaintiff, or in a mass tort, the plaintiffs in a tort case typically sue the defendant for monetary compensation to remedy damages the defendant caused the plaintiff.

Torts can be brought against individuals and entities that act on behalf of the federal government that caused injury to a private party. These types of cases typically involve instances of government negligence, regulatory agency activities, and professional malpractice.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
