One of the worst recorded football disasters happened on 15 April 1989. During the 1989 FA Cup semi-final game between Liverpool and Nottingham Forest. 96 people died and hundreds were injured.

It took 26 years before an inquest jury concluded that the 96 Liverpool supporters who died were unlawfully killed. The jury decided that the supporters’ behaviour didn’t cause or contribute to the tragedy. They also concluded that various organisations, including the police, caused or contributed to the deaths.

 

The High Court has granted a Group Litigation Order in respect of all claims being brought for the wrongful actions of lawful authority in public office against the Chief Constables of South Yorkshire and West Midlands Police in relation to the police conduct after the Hillsborough tragedy in April 1989.

The litigation is to be known as “The Hillsborough Victims’ Misfeasance Litigation”.

Our specialist team of solicitors working together to achieve the right outcome for our Hillsborough clients includes Nancy Collins, Sarah Flanagan and Alice Hardy.

“Hodge Jones & Allen has represented many victims and their families over the years. Representing some of the Hillsborough families highlights the importance of individuals having access to justice. It should be recognised that the families have fought tirelessly for the right to access to justice and for the truth” - Nancy Collins, Partner
