Lake Charles Mass Tort Lawyers
Successful Occupational Exposure Attorneys for Jennings and Lake Charles
Most toxic tort cases have arisen either from people harmed by using pharmaceutical drugs or by exposure to occupational hazards, like asbestos.
As with class action suits, which are mainly different in the way the process unfolds, mass torts are an idea we have helped pioneer in Louisiana. Here are just a few recent mass tort efforts that paid off for clients of Cox, Cox, Filo, Camel & Wilson L.L.C. The award amounts are divided among the plaintiffs.
Examples of Successful Mass Torts by Our Lawyers
