What is the difference between a mass tort action and a class action lawsuit?

In every mass tort action, every victim has a separate lawsuit and trial which results in distinct damages for each victim. In a class action, there are many plaintiffs who are represented by a class legal representative in one trial. Any damages awarded in a class action lawsuit are distributed among the victims.
