Personal Injury & Wrongful Death


When many people suffer a similar injury because of a related event, the best approach to obtain recovery may be in a class action or mass torts lawsuit.

Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP is a leader in many of the most significant consumer-oriented, class action and mass tort lawsuits that have been filed in the United States. Our attorneys were instrumental in representing the County of Los Angeles in its $3.3 billion settlement against Big Tobacco, which involved the Phillip Morris and R.J. Reynolds tobacco companies. Areas in which GB&W has represented clients in either class action or mass torts litigation include:

  • Asbestos
  • Fen-Phen
  • L-Tryptophan
  • Tobacco
  • Welding Rods
  • Workplace Discrimination
  • Vioxx

Currently, we are representing a class of clients injured while using welding rods. Victims suffer Parkinson disease-like symptoms triggered by the inhalation of manganese fumes emitted by the rods. Investigation is ongoing into the long-term health implications from exposure to welding fumes. GB&W also represents clients who have suffered complications from taking the arthritis drug Vioxx, including an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, blood clots and other cardiovascular related health problems.


Just as a class action suit derives its power from numbers, so does Greene Broillet & Wheeler's mass tort practice.

Our previous achievements in representing plaintiffs in complex consumer mass actions include successful outcomes involving Asbestos, L-Tryptophan and Fen-Phen.

The Firm has gained the specialized knowledge and financial strength to mount a successful legal challenge against entire industries that have harmed the public.


We offer class action and mass tort clients access to our industry experts, a track record of superb litigation coordination and a proprietary team of investigative specialists dedicated to gathering the evidence of an industry's deliberate wide-scale injury to consumers.

Greene Broillet & Wheeler leverages its vast trial resources to obtain the highest compensation possible for all plaintiffs represented in a mass tort or consumer class action.

[ Impact to Change ]

Much of our firm's work involves taking on large corporations, insurance companies and government agencies. By and large, these entities oppose change and will expend seemingly unlimited resources to preserve the status quo. At GB&W, we relish taking on this level of opposition. Through our many years of practice, our personal injury lawyers and staff have achieved unparalleled success in trial and other forums against these opponents. Taking on these companies serves a dual purpose. First, our efforts help our clients recover the compensation they need to move forward after a life-changing injury. Secondly, our work makes communities safer places to live. In this way, everyone can benefit from our work. [ more » ]
