Group action deadlines: don’t miss out!

court deadline judge

Given that many people will miss group action deadlines, it’s important for us to advise about them and stress the importance of making a claim sooner rather than later.

Although we can’t speak for other firms, we offer No Win, No Fee legal representation for clients eligible for group actions that we take forward. This means that we can write off our legal fees if the claim doesn’t succeed, so it begs the question: what have you got to lose in making a claim?

Despite this, people still put it off and many still miss out. We can tell you this from considerable experience. As such, take heed of this vital advice and make sure you don’t miss your chance to claim compensation!
