What’s the process?

When you contact the team we will provide a Free Case Assessment to understand what has happened to you, listen what you would like to achieve and ensure that you have a valid case to bring. Once we have identified that you have a legitimate claim we will begin an investigation.

In a group action this can be slightly different to a normal case as there will be parts which we can achieve as part of a wider group. Within this stage we will need to collect evidence, work out who is responsible and assess your injuries. When dealing with a group there may be efficiencies and hopefully you will be able to benefit from this. We will apply to the Court to let them know that we are dealing with the case. If needed we will get a Group Litigation Order.

We will then negotiate with the defendants in order for us to try and reach a favourable settlement. Once we have a decision or an agreement of settlement we will arrange for the compensation to be paid to you.
