We are able to assist groups of claimants concurrently who have suffered a loss due to a defendant’s act of negligence or breach of duty, such a professional negligence or breaches of contract. If this has resulted in clients suffering the same or similar types of financial loss, we take on cases from a range of different areas of law.
To make a group action claim, the claimants need to be affected by the same or similar issues.
Group claims are often bought by multiple people who have suffered financial loss due to the negligent act or omission of one defendant.
Also known as group actions, collective actions and class actions (which is a US term). In essence, although called different things the above carry the same benefits.
One of the main advantages of a group claim is that in addition to having strength in numbers in the face of the defendant, any legal advice and documents can be shared with other claimants and counsel advice costs can be spread across the whole group of claimants.
The risk of paying the other side’s costs can also be reduced due to collective action funding arrangements.
We offer a range of flexible funding options for group action claims such as no win no fee, deferred fees and no win low fee.
We invite you to request a free initial consultation from Specters to clarify your options for pursuing a group action claim.
