Do you Stand with Oakey?
At Shine Lawyers, we’ve been standing up for the rights of everyday Australians for over 40 years. We are raising awareness of the upcoming class action against the Commonwealth of Australia (Department of Defence) in connection with land contamination.
Shine Lawyers have conditional funding for a proposed class action against the Department of Defence as a result of the PFC contamination from the nearby airbase. Firefighting chemicals used at the Army Aviation Centre from 1970-2005 have leached into the soil and contaminated groundwater in the local area. Australia's largest litigation funders, IMF Bentham, are to fund the case.
The action will be brought on behalf of a considerable number of Oakey residents affected by contamination alleged to have arisen from the use of firefighting foams containing PFOS and PFOA chemicals at an army base in the rural Queensland community.
The owners of more than 350 properties and businesses have signed up to be part of the class action, which will seek compensation for the economic loss from residential, agricultural and business land as a result of the contamination (known as landholder claims).
