Hazelwood Coal Mine Fire Investigation

Maurice Blackburn has concluded its investigation into the circumstances surrounding the Hazelwood coal mine fire which ignited on or about 9 February 2014 and has determined not to commence a class action proceeding.


We have investigated this matter at length and have decided not to issue a class action.

While we have ruled out issuing a class action, you may still have other legal options to pursue. You may still decide to seek advice on whether your individual circumstances give rise to claims that could be compensated. If you wish to seek further legal advice, you should do so as soon as possible as time limits apply.
