Upon court approval of the settlement agreement, in most cases there will only be a 6-month period to make individual claims. That may sound like enough time but it is not necessarily so. The information gathering process will be time consuming. The forms are lengthy and detailed.
In the previous settlement (Merlo Davidson) for female RCMP Members, the claim period was extended. In the new settlement though, we understand that no extensions will be granted except in exceptional circumstances.
We therefore strongly recommend that qualified claimants engage us early in the process to ensure ample time. We are now accepting new clients and preparing their claims. If you think you qualify, act now!
