A group action claim is where a group of people – sometimes even thousands of people – have been affected by the same issue. Group action cases are also known (here or in the US) as class actions, multi-claimant or multi-party actions.
A group action allows people with the same type of claim to bring it together on a collective basis. This strengthens their overall position and makes big organisations take the matter seriously. This increases the claimant’s chances of settlement or success in litigation.
Just because your case is part of a group action doesn’t mean that everyone will receive the same amount of compensation if successful. All claims are settled based on their merits, and you will receive what you are owed.
