Group Claims

Group claims, also known as collective or class actions, offer an efficient way for multiple individuals affected by the same issue to seek compensation collectively.

MSRS-Group Claims

In the UK, these claims are particularly beneficial when dealing with personal injury or medical negligence cases involving numerous people.

If you’re contemplating a personal injury or medical negligence claim and believe others have been similarly affected, joining a group claim can streamline the process and enhance your chances of success. Our personal injury solicitors specialise in facilitating group claims, which combine multiple compensation cases, thereby saving time and reducing legal costs.

  • Passenger transport and coach accidents
  • Medical negligence
  • Defective products
  • Exposure to environmental hazards, such as contaminated water or chemical spills
