Multi-Party Actions

Multi-party actions, group 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.

Hudgell solicitors have been involved with a number of group litigations. By joining together in a group, individuals can benefit from a collective strength.

We know that making a claim against negligence or other issues can sometimes be a daunting experience for individuals and people may be put off from pursuing a claim particularly perhaps against a very large and well-resourced opponent.

At Hudgell Solicitors we have specialist solicitors in various teams who have worked on group actions representing numbers of clients all focussed on one goal – to gain justice.

Past and current group actions include Whitchurch and Shirley Oakes abuse claims, Chelsea footballer abuse claims and forensic sampling (Randox)
