The universe of mass tort cases is typically well-defined. They are usually personal injury cases resulting from the sale of dangerous products. Bad or contaminated prescription drugs, harmful medical devices, defective consumer products, and disasters affecting many people are the most common mass torts. At any given time, there will be dozens of mass tort cases in play, with one or two just about to enter the picture. Selecting which torts to pursue is part art and part science. The recent rise in the use of data analytics helps us make stronger, more accurate predictions but data cannot account for all human behavior. Understanding the motivations of clients, co-counsel, defendants, and your own team are an essential key to mass tort business acumen.
