Out of any field of law, mass torts is one of the most important when it comes to having a skilled attorney working for you.
This is because in comparison to a specialized attorney who works with only one client at a time, a mass tort attorney may represent several clients who have been harmed by the same defendant or small group of defendants.
When it comes to selecting a Mass Torts attorney in Arizona, how can you be sure your lawyer will take the necessary time and do the due diligence necessary to establish the facts about your case?
Having buyer’s remorse for purchasing a product like a big screen TV is one thing, but selecting legal representation is not something you want to regret if your case doesn’t go your way.
Perhaps your attorney is hoping that your case, should it be consolidated in a multidistrict litigation (MDL), won’t ever get to trial and will instead be resolved with a master settlement. An MDL is a legal action that lumps very similar cases from different judicial districts together. This can increase the power of individual plaintiffs but could result in the individual’s needs being pushed to the back.
However, MDLs eventually end. Even if dozens of other people in Arizona have filed similar claims to you against a common defendant, and their cases are consolidated into an MDL, it’s possible that your suit could be filed after the deadline to join the MDL.
If your case is not resolved, either by a settlement or because you joined the MDL too late, your case could be sent back to the transferor court. That’s the federal court in Arizona; aka the United States District Court for the District of Arizona.
In the event your individual case does go to trial in the District of Arizona, your mass tort attorney must be able to expertly plead the complaints selected for trial. Will the evidence your attorney presents cause the court to draw a reasonable inference that the defendant is liable for misconduct or neglect?
Arizona law states a manufacturing defect claim must identify a specific flaw or flaws in the manufacturing process. It’s not enough for an attorney to plead a claim with a generic “the defendant’s product caused my client harm.” Your attorney must leave no stone unturned in pleading a manufacturing defect claim.
This includes knowing the best expert witnesses to hire in order to prove that your claim is valid and can’t be dismissed by a simple motion to dismiss or a directed verdict. The same goes for failure-to-warn claims and design defect claims, strict liability claims as well as claims made under the Arizona Consumer Fraud Act.
