Consumer protection litigation clients are people who come from all walks of life, including consumers, entrepreneurs, municipalities and businesses. They all have one thing in common, however. They have been harmed by a larger corporation or business entity and are seeking legal help.
Consumer protection class actions and mass tort litigation play a critical role in protecting American consumers and allow a large number of individuals to hold companies accountable for their bad conduct.
Most consumers have heard the term “class action,” but they are less familiar with “mass tort.” Class action is a lawsuit filed on behalf of a group of people who share unfortunate circumstances, damages or injuries. Consumers have the choice to join the class action suit. Most of the time, the injuries or damages suffered by each client are similar enough in nature that individual lawsuits would not be time or cost effective for anyone.
Mass tort lawsuits are different. In many cases, when defective drugs or devices harm or injure consumers, mass tort litigations are filed. Since drugs and devices can cause a wide range of different problems for each individual, these cases rarely fit in a single class. Any results from mass torts are determined on an individual basis by the unique circumstances associated with the person’s injuries.

"I lost my wife to a heart attack caused by a dangerous drug. While nothing I do will ever bring her back, the Simmons firm helped ensure that other people won’t have to suffer the same loss as me. That product is no longer on the market and the company responsible for selling it to my wife paid a heavy financial price for hurting people like her."
