We know far too many individuals who have lost, or almost lost, their businesses; lost their jobs; lost loved ones, or been prevented from seeing them; denied the support of their social networks or been bullied, abused or vilified by others and censored on social media. Far too many have suffered tremendous anxiety, a relapse of mental illness or a rapid deterioration in their medical conditions.
Some have considered, and are still considering, taking their own lives; for they see no way out of a world that appears to be taking more and more of their freedoms and happiness every single day. For some, it is already too late.
We think these sufferings could have been prevented, and have been wholly unnecessary, if they resulted from “coronavirus measures.” We think the evidence will prove those measures were wrong, and Government should have known they were wrong.
In any legal case, it is vital that you take steps to help yourself as far as possible. Keep a record of everything you have done to try and resolve your issues, for example, keep copies of any letters sent and any responses you receive. Make a note of the dates and times and lengths of any telephone conversations, and the name and position of the people you spoke with, as well as what was spoken about.
Here are some suggestions of things you can do now, and should continue to do, because a Class Action of this nature is likely to take a very long time and there is no guarantee it will compensate you personally, or in the way that you expect. Taking these actions, or engaging your own lawyer, won’t preclude you from being included in this case.
