Mass Tort and Class Action Cases

Our experienced team of attorneys at Bryan Law Center is dedicated to representing individuals nationwide in mass tort and class action cases. We understand the challenges you face, and we possess the knowledge, determination, and resources to guide you through the complexities of these cases.

What is a Mass Tort?

Mass tort litigation empowers groups of individuals who have suffered similar harm to unite against powerful corporations. Individual plaintiffs file separate lawsuits against a common defendant, allowing for more personalized attention to the unique circumstances of each claim. These cases involve defective medical devices, unsafe prescription drugs, asbestos exposure, and man-made disasters caused by toxic chemicals. At Bryant Law Center, we specialize in navigating these complex cases, ensuring that the voices of those who have suffered are heard.

What is a Class Action Lawsuit?

In a class action lawsuit, a plaintiff, known as the class representative, files a lawsuit on behalf of a larger group of people, referred to as the class. This class consists of individuals who have suffered similar harm or damages caused by the defendant’s actions. All class members are bound by the court’s decision unless they opt-out.

      Current Cases

      Wondering if your injury may qualify for a class action claim? Contact the Bryant Law Center for a free consultation. Our current mass tort cases include:

      Eye Drops

      A recall of EzriCare artificial tear drops has been initiated following their association with a surge in bacterial eye infections. Testing conducted by the CDC revealed the presence of Carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA) bacteria in opened bottles of EzriCare eye drops. This strain of bacteria is of heightened concern due to its ability to cause severe infections and resistance to specific antibiotics.

      Chemical Hair Straightener

      Studies have uncovered a correlation between the use of hair relaxers and specific cancers. Given that these hair products are often introduced to women at a young age, many have undergone these potentially harmful treatments for several decades.

      Talc Powder

      The legal actions against Johnson & Johnson regarding talcum powder remain ongoing. Allegations in these lawsuits suggest that the extended use of talcum powder, a key ingredient in products like Baby Powder and Shower to Shower, may be linked to the development of ovarian cancer in certain women.

      Paraquat

      Exposure to Paraquat, a highly toxic herbicide, increases the risk of farmers and agricultural workers developing Parkinson’s Disease.

      Zantac

      The maker of Zantac (ranitidine), a household heartburn medication, is being sued due to it containing a cancer-causing chemical called nitrosamine (N-nitrosodimethylamine or NDMA).

      Camp Lejeune

      Marines, their families, and civilian employees who were stationed, lived, or worked at Camp Lejeune for at least 30 days between 1953 to 1987 may be entitled to compensation. Severe injuries and deaths are being linked to contaminated drinking and bathing water used at that time.

      Social Media Addiction

      Social media lawsuits are on the rise as addiction becomes an increasing problem that, in effect, can cause a range of mental health conditions, such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, suicide, and more.

      How Much Does a Mass Tort and Class Action Lawyer Cost?

      Mass tort or class action lawyers typically work on a contingency fee basis, which means that the lawyer’s payment is contingent upon the successful resolution of the case. In other words, the lawyer only gets paid if they secure a favorable settlement or verdict for the client. The contingency fee is usually a percentage of the total amount recovered (e.g., 33%), and it is agreed upon between the lawyer and the client before the legal representation begins.

      This fee arrangement is beneficial for clients who might not have the financial means to pay legal fees upfront. It aligns the lawyer’s interests with those of the client, as the lawyer’s compensation is directly tied to the success of the case. If you do not win, the lawyer does not receive a fee.
