How does compensation work in a mass tort?

Compensation varies from plaintiff to plaintiff as each claim in a mass tort is treated on an individual basis, similar to a personal injury case.

The benefit of mass tort litigation is that it provides each plaintiff with a different amount of compensation dependent on their damages. For example, if one plaintiff suffers hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages, and another plaintiff only suffers tens of thousands of dollars in damages, their compensation payouts will be proportional to their damages rather than a flat amount.
