    "Mass torts" is an incredibly broad term that includes many disparate substantive areas--everything from an airplane accident that injures many individuals at once, to asbestos claims involving alleged exposure and injury over the course of many decades. This book aims to provide a useful guide that examines most phases of mass tort cases while appealing to attorneys of varying levels of experience in many different types of cases.

    The book begins with a brief history of mass tort litigation, followed by chapters that discuss various stages of individual cases: preliminary considerations such as jurisdiction and venue, theories of liability and defenses, and mechanisms courts use to manage mass tort cases, including class actions and multi-district litigation. There are also chapters addressing discovery, experts and settlement--all in the specialized context of mass torts. Finally, the book explores some issues that arise at least somewhat uniquely in mass tort litigation.
