Mass Tort
1.What makes a Mass Tort Case?
A personal injury case becomes a mass tort case when a large number of participants make a claim against the same defendant/defective product. The claims brought up by the participants should be similar but not the same. Also, the claims must be interdependent from each other.
2. How long do you have to file a mass tort lawsuit?
The rules for filing a mass tort lawsuit are the same as other personal injury lawsuits. The statute of limitations, or the time you have after an accident to file a claim, is four years. Specific types of injuries, however, have exceptions.
3. Do I have a tort claim if I’ve experienced complications from a dangerous drug?
Complications from dangerous drugs can vary in severity. So, it’s challenging to determine if your complications due to a dangerous drug qualify for mass tort.
4. How long does a mass tort claim take?
Mass tort claims involve multiple plaintiffs. So they can take longer than typical personal injury cases. Typically, a mass tort case takes years to resolve.
5. How do I join a mass tort lawsuit?
Reach out to a Florida lawyer like People For Law, who has experience in handling mass tort cases. During the initial consultation, we will provide you with options for receiving compensation and inform you if a mass tort lawsuit is going on against the defendant in your case.

Personal Injury

1.How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
Depending on the type of personal injury case being filed, there may be different statutes of limitations. However, for most personal injury cases in Florida, from the date of accident, you have four years to file a personal injury claim.
2. How do I afford my lost wages/medical bills before a settlement?
This is a valid concern. Your personal injury protection may help you cover medical expenses in motor vehicle accidents. Your health insurance coverage or medical payment coverage may also cover your medical bills. Expenses for accidents occurring on the job should be paid for by worker’s compensation.
3. How long does it take to reach a settlement?
It varies from case to case. A simple cut-and-dry case may take just weeks to resolve, while more complex cases with multiple parties involved and where the fault may be harder to determine may take longer, even years to resolve.
4. What happens if my case goes to trial?
Several personal injury cases are settled outside court. Cases usually go to trial when the parties involved are in dispute and cannot reach a settlement. If your case goes to trial, your attorney can guide you on what to expect in the trial and prepare you for the proceedings.
5. How much is my case worth?
A number of factors decide the value of your case, including the severity of your injuries, the severity of the impact on your ability to work, and emotional pain and suffering. A personal injury attorney cannot guarantee the value of your case but can offer you an estimate depending on similar cases they have handled before.
