Ches Crosbie Barristers

Newfoundland and Labrador Class Action Lawyer

A Letter From Ches: This Change Means We Have Your Best Interest At Heart

The lawyers at Ches Crosbie Barristers believe focus is important.

Ches Crosbie Barristers is the only law firm in Newfoundland and Labrador that exclusively helps clients with personal injuries. This unique, in-depth experience allows Ches Crosbie Barristers to get the best possible outcome for clients and their families.

Detailed knowledge of personal injury law means the CCB team can guide clients through the legal process and keep them well-informed along the way. Injured clients don’t have to stress or worry about their claims. Instead, they can concentrate on getting their lives back.

For years, I, Ches Crosbie, have focused on medical malpractice and class action cases. Lawyers Darlene Russell, Pamela Taylor, and Jessica Dellow have been helping the majority of motor vehicle accident clients at Ches Crosbie Barristers.

In celebration of focus and our 25 years of practice together, we have all decided to concentrate on performing the jobs we do best.

This means that I will continue to do medical malpractice and class actions at my separate renamed law firm, Patient Injury Law. Current clients can expect things to proceed in exactly the same way as before. My new address is:

Patient Injury Law

36 Quidi Vidi Rd

St. John's, NL

A1A 1C1

My new email address is [email protected] My phone numbers are (709) 700-0338 and 1-888-933-2437 toll free.

Darlene, Pamela, and Jessica will carry on helping car accident clients under the name Ches Crosbie Barristers. I have every confidence that they will continue to do a superb job. Clients can rest assured that they are unaffected by this transition.

My promise has always been to provide the best possible legal representation and personal service. I continue to follow through on this promise.

Creating a Level Playing Field for Victims

Class action lawsuits are lawsuits brought forward on behalf of a group. They are relatively new in Canada and The Class Actions Act was passed in Newfoundland and Labrador in 2002. They allow people to sue for compensation in situations where it is often too difficult or unrealistic to file an individual suit, creating better access to justice for consumers. Class actions put victims on a more even playing field against the typically large and powerful defendant.

Pioneering Access to Justice

Ches Crosbie obtained the very first class certification in Newfoundland and Labrador in a lawsuit against Bayer for injuries from its anti-cholesterol drug Baycol. He was also the first to receive a court approved settlement in Atlantic Canada in a class action in Labrador over a hospital sterilization failure. He may be most well-known for our work in the Breast Cancer Testing Class Action that followed the discovery of botched medical tests by the Health Sciences pathology lab. He has been able to help thousands of people through class action lawsuits, for whom it would be unrealistic to make individual claims.

Current Class Actions

Ches Crosbie is presently involved in a number of class action lawsuits listed in the box above. If you think you or a loved one might be eligible for inclusion in one of our class action lawsuits, or if you would like more information, contact Ches Crosbie at his separate, renamed law firm Patient Injury Law. His new email address is [email protected] and he can also be reached at (709) 700-0338 and 1-888-933-2437 toll free.
