A mass tort is civil litigation in which numerous plaintiffs with similar claims join a single action; mass torts are sometimes handled as class action lawsuits, although not all mass torts are class actions. Mass torts and class actions can be especially effective in cases that involve major corporations, such as auto makers or pharmaceutical manufacturers, or circumstances in which exposure to a toxin has harmed multiple people.
