The Plymouth County Court made a Group Litigation Order on 7th March 2013 in relation to a Group Action to be pursued by past or present employees of Gregory Distribution Limited or South West Water Limited in relation to injuries or conditions alleged to be attributable to exposure to hazardous emissions (hydrogen sulphide (“H2S”) or like substance) in the course of employment arising from their activities in relation to the treatment of and transportation of waste water / sewage / sludge.
The Court ordered that any individual who wishes to pursue such a claim may join the Group Action by being added to the Group Register of claims from 4th April 2013.
The Court appointed Thompsons (The New Union House, 2 Harbour Avenue, Plymouth, Devon, PL4 0BJ, 01752 675 810) as the Lead Solicitors to the Group Action.
However, claimants may instruct any firm of solicitors to participate in the litigation. A list of solicitors instructed in these claims may be obtained from the Law Society (www.lawsociety.org.uk / 0207242 1222)
All individuals must have their claims investigated before they can be added to the Group Register so they need to come forward as soon as possible. The Court has imposed a cut off date of 31st July 2013 for joining the Group Action and the Court may decide that anyone who has not joined at that date may lose their opportunity to be part of the litigation.
