To explain simply, mass tort litigation involves the cases where people throughout the country who have suffered losses or have been injured because of a defective product files for justice. All those cases of the individulas are consolidated into a single proceeding in a Federal District Court where there are pre-trial proceedings being undertaken. The proceedings involve the exchange of documents completing depositions, exchange of information and dealing with expert witnesses.
After the trial preparation work is done, the mass tort claims attorney might at times ask the individual case to be transferred to the local court where it was originally filed and then the actual trial might take place.
There are a number of different MDL proceedings throughout the United States. One of the most common one is that of the surgical meshes which has involved a number of different manufacturers such as Bard, Boston Scientific, Ethicon, American Medical, Coloplast and some more. There cases have been consolidated in MDL proceedings.
