Mass Torts, Disasters And Crashes

Mass torts and disasters are often in the news. They are shocking, sudden and often devastating. When a mass disaster happens, whether it involves life-threatening injuries or illness, massive environmental contamination, or severe property damage, there are immediate questions about cause and responsibility.

Why did this happen? Who is responsible?

From Lac-Mégantic to the Maple Leaf tainted food scandal to the Lockerbie air disaster, our lawyers ask questions, too: How can the guilty parties be held responsible for their actions? How can we help the people hurt by their negligence?

Working For Victims And Families

The mass tort litigation lawyers at Rochon Genova are dedicated to obtaining compensation for victims of mass torts and disasters. We fight for victims and their families in cases of:

  • Large-scale accidents such as train derailments and aviation disasters
  • Collapsed buildings
  • Environmental contamination
  • Contaminated food
  • Industrial hazards such as chemical exposure and exposure to toxins
  • Any commercial negligence causing harm

The damage may be caused by any number of errors, including equipment failures, failures in designing or following safety procedures, and failure to properly train or supervise employees.

In pursuing a mass tort class action lawsuit, we consult experts in whatever field is necessary, whether in food safety, environmental exposure or accident reconstruction. We work with them to determine the cause of the accident and who is at fault. We aim to help victims and their families heal — and prevent future tragedies.
