Mass torts and class actions are similar in that they both involve multiple individuals who have been harmed by a negligent party.
Class Actions: All claimants are part of a group that needs to prove wrongdoing, and participants are represented collectively. Those in the class all have the same injury or loss.
Mass Torts: Each member of the group has an individual claim. Participants commonly suffer similar injuries, but the extent of the damages is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
