A group action is where a number of individuals, and in some cases organisations, with shared circumstances and similar claims come together to take legal action against a common defendant.
This type of group action is common against large organisations where a lot of people have been affected by an incident, whether that’s involved physical or psychological injury, or in some cases financial losses.
The benefits of this type of collective action are that resources, risk, information, and knowledge can be shared amongst the many claimants.
Our specialists have experience in co-ordinating and making these types of claims, and looking after our clients’ best interests. Examples of group action cases we have acted in include, vaginal mesh, PIP breast implants and defective hip joints.
If you have experienced an injury due to a defective product or medication, or you are aware of others who have had similar problems, please contact our Personal Injury & Group Actions team to discuss your circumstances.
