Multiple claims: Stockline Disaster Group

1 July 04

Group has been formed by a number of solicitors who represent victims and relatives of deceased victims of the Stockline disaster

The Society has been contacted and kept informed by the Stockline Disaster Group, formed by a number of solicitors who represent the victims and relatives of deceased victims of the Stockline disaster. Within the group are solicitors who have experience in dealing with cases such as Piper Alpha, Brent Spar, Lockerbie and the Glasgow air crash.

The Society encourages solicitors showing this type of initiative. By forming a group, solicitors can work together, pool resources and negotiate as a group so that all claims can progress at the same speed. The cost of expert witnesses can also be shared across all the firms’ clients. However this type of group does not freeze out those who do not wish to participate.
