What We Do For You
Truth, Transparency and Accountability. These principles guide our law firm and are the touchstones of the mass tort and class action practice at Baird Mandalas Brockstedt.
Services We Provide
Mass tort and class action cases arise when a group of people are harmed or injured because a company chooses to maximize profits without concern for safety. These cases typically involve litigating claims on behalf of a group of people arising out of a single act or multiple events occurring over time. A benefit to handling cases on behalf of a group of people is the ability to build leverage and efficiently prosecute the case – quite simply, there is strength in numbers.
