Families of Red Hill Valley Parkway crash victims launch $250M class-action lawsuit against City of Hamilton

From Article on Global News:

Two law firms, Hooper and Scarfone Hawkins, have issued a statement of claim in excess of $250 million against the City of Hamilton as a result of what they call “negligent design, construction and maintenance.”

The lawsuit states that over 2,000 vehicles have lost control on the road in the past 12 years, resulting in either single- or multiple-vehicle crashes.

Rob Hooper, from the Hooper firm and the lead lawyer in the claim, told Global News Radio that they are also seeking damages for the hidden study of 2013 and lack of remedial measures taken by the city in response to that report.

“We will suggest from a common sense basis if the report would not have been lost, hidden, purposefully or accidentally not disclosed to the appropriate parties within the city of Hamilton and to the public, perhaps these remedial measures would have been taken earlier and lives would have been saved,” said Hooper.

“Why was remedial action not taken when they were told it was not safe. And you know we all know from the media that at least four people have lost their lives on that road since the report was authored.”
