Our long-term commitment to social justice issues has led Duncan Basheer Hannon’s personal injury lawyers to represent thousands of South Australians in various class actions.
A class action streamlines the legal process for obtaining compensation for people with a common cause of action. The main benefit of class actions is that you can join a group of people to seek compensation in the one Court Action, which can significantly reduce your personal costs. For example, a group of employees of a certain company may have more success lodging a claim against an employer as a group than as individuals.
Duncan Basheer Hannon has successfully represented many thousands of clients in a large number of class action claims, including:
- Goodwood Orphanage Physical Abuse
- Wards of State Sexual Abuse
- Medical Negligence
- Church Sexual Abuse
- Port Lincoln Bushfire Victims
- Product Liability/Food Poisoning
- DePuy ASR Hip & Knee Replacements
- Dow Corning Faulty Breast Implants
Why participate in a Class Action?
When a group of people are linked to the one representational lawsuit, it gives those people a voice and the opportunity to work together to benefit the whole group. The intended outcome is a more timely resolution of your claim. The smoother and faster the process, the lower the costs that are incurred.
