Multi party action or class action or group litigation instigated by solicitors usually involves a large number of people, all of whom have a similar injury caused in a similar way as a result of the same event by the negligence of someone else, taking legal action for compensation in a Court of Law. It is effectively a procedural arrangement that allows multiple compensation claims to be litigated efficiently and resolved with finality. Multi party action or class action or group litigation effectively reduces the use of court time and reduces solicitors legal costs as only one representative action is taken forward to trial, the result of which is binding on all parties in the group.

Multi party action or class action or group litigation compensation claims generally fall into 3 broad categories:

  • Sudden disasters: personal injury or fatal accident claims, including damage to property.
  • Consumer claims: claims related to use or consumption of defective goods or services, personal injury or financial loss.
  • Rolling claims: claims arising from a single cause such as an allegedly defective drug or product.
