Mass Torts

California and National Mass Tort Litigation

Mass tort litigation is often about the human damage caused by environmental catastrophes such as an oil spill, wildfire, toxic waste disposal site or a landslide. It may also be about the harms caused by deadly products such as asbestos, tobacco, pharmaceutical drugs or defective medical devices. Human-caused catastrophes such a railroad disaster, a plane crash or even an event as large as 9/11 can form the basis for these types of actions as well.

In every instance, mass tort litigation is complex.

Lawyers at Ringler Law Corporation have the broad-based experience, financial resources, and sophisticated understanding of the legal issues necessary to provide mass tort plaintiffs with the tenacious representation needed to prevail in these hard-fought cases.

What sets us apart and what has cemented our reputation among the premiere civil litigation firms in the Los Angeles area is our dedication to the client — every one of whom is represented by a highly skilled legal team led by experienced litigators.

Our commitment to excellent service can also be seen in the firm's highly selective approach to accepting cases. By not stretching ourselves too thin, we ensure that each client has complete access to all of Ringler Law Corporation' considerable resources. Equally as important, our attorneys are free to deploy our well-honed trial abilities, investigative skills and in-depth legal knowledge toward maximizing the total value of each individual claim.

Our experience with the complex civil litigation of mass torts includes matters involving railroad accidents, mass transit disasters, asbestos products, defective medical devices, pharmaceuticals (including a national mass tort lawsuit on behalf of consumers who contracted Hepatitis C from a contaminated drug product) and both the MGM and Hilton Hotel fires in Las Vegas, Nevada. Lawyers at Ringler Law Corporation also handled key elements of the Ford/Firestone litigation for defective tires that led to vehicle rollovers. No matter the cost, no matter the foe — we are prepared to fight tirelessly for our clients.

Our personal injury practice is limited exclusively to the representation of individual and class action plaintiffs on a contingency fee basis. Compensation occurs only after money is recovered in the case, as regulated by law.
