In defective product claims it is not unusual for lots of people to have been affected by the same product – although group actions can arise in many different areas, not just defective products.
In some cases a group action may be appropriate way for the court to manage a number of similar claims together without having a trial of each individual claim. Group actions can help people to share legal expertise as well as the cost by working together, to try and maximise the chances of being fully and fairly compensated for your trauma.
We have extensive experience in pursuing group actions relating to many different types of claim, including for defective products, drugs and medical devices.
