  • Truvada Mass Tort Cases – The prescription drug Truvada has been a turning point in the fight against HIV transmission. Unfortunately, it has also left users with chronic kidney disease and bone injuries.

What is the Difference Between a Class Action Lawsuit and a Mass Tort Claim?

In a class action lawsuit, a single injured person brings a lawsuit on behalf of an entire group, or “class,” of unnamed people who all theoretically share the same injury from the same illegal conduct. The court looks at the allegations and determines whether there is, in fact, a “class” of people similarly injured and whether a single “class action” lawsuit is the best way to determine what damages that group suffered.

In a mass tort, many individuals will bring separate lawsuits regarding the same damaging circumstance. A court will then consolidate all or part of these separate lawsuits together using a variety of methods under the law. Mass torts are how the majority of pharmaceutical cases are handled. In many of these cases, although all plaintiffs have been injured in some way, the injuries may differ from victim to victim—and each one of these plaintiffs will have their own trial.
