Group Actions

Our legal teams have vast amounts of expertise due to their involvement with high profile cases which include the Manchester Bombing, Windrush and the recent Post Office Horizon IT Scandal. See below for a full list of the investigations that we’ve represented clients on.

Group actions, multi-party actions or group litigation are run when a significant number of claimants have closely related or similar claims arising from the same event. This type of action is one route for individuals with similar complaints to join together against a negligent party.

They usually fall into three main categories:

  • Sudden disasters which result in personal injury or fatal accident claims
  • Ongoing claims which arise from a single cause for example from a defective drug or product
  • Claims involving the consumer. These include personal injury, defective goods or services goods or services.
