Major disaster group litigation
Major disasters and incidents involving a significant loss of life or serious injuries are mercifully rare. However, when incidents such as train crashes, boat sinking’s and building fires do happen, the consequences can be both tragic and far-reaching.
That’s because almost every victim will have financial obligations to meet or dependants to support. Where loss of life or life-changing injuries occur, the families of victims will often require support and financial compensation to help them pay for things such as counselling and medical care, as well as to meet the cost of everyday living expenses like rent and mortgages.
When this happens, it’s often best to deal with compensation claims as These help to ensure that every victim of the disaster or incident benefits from having strength in numbers when it comes to establishing fault and seeking rightful compensation on behalf of survivors and their relatives.
Even when you don’t meet the criteria for a GLO, we may be able to treat you as a group for litigation purposes, to help you take advantage of the many benefits and economies of group actions. To find out more, call us on or and we’ll call you.
