Red Hill Valley Parkway

Class Action Suit

January 24, 2023

Further to our updating memo posted on our website after Mr. Justice Edwards’ decision, we confirm that the class action lawsuit will not proceed.  His Honour determined that due to the variety of factors that might cause or contribute to any given accident, a class action would not be the preferable procedure to determine the issues between all of the potential class members’ claim and the City. 

We agreed with opposing counsel that there will be no award of costs of the certification motion. Our team at Grosso Hooper Law and Scarfone Hawkins also determined after careful consideration that an appeal of this decision was not reasonably viable.

So this decision will stand and the lawsuit cannot proceed as a class action against the City of Hamilton.

That being said, Justice Edwards’ decision is not a judgment about whether you individually have a viable claim against the City of Hamilton regarding the Red Hill Valley Parkway. Rather, the decision is simply a determination that all of the matters cannot proceed together by way of a class action.

For further important information about possible individual claims, please refer to the letter dated January 24, 2023 emailed to potential class members who had completed questionnaires with our office.

To find out if you fit within one of the proposed classes please contact the Grosso Hooper Law offices

You will be asked questions including important details of your accident. Downloading the questionnaire below will let you know the questions that will be asked of you, and information you will need to have on hand during the interview.

When You’re Injured, We Fight For You

Thank you and Mary and everyone else at the office. You have all been wonderful and very helpful through this ordeal. I appreciate all the long work and hours put into helping me. Thanks again.


Mr. Hooper, my mom and I would like to thank you for all your hard work and dedication involved in her legal matters. You are a great person and will never be forgotten!!

Rob was exceptional. When we spoke with him, he really made us feel number one. Any time we came to see him he made us feel so welcome. He understood all of our needs and he worked so hard on our case it was unbelievable. He was able to settle our case pretty fast. If we knew someone else who needed a lawyer, he would be the first guy we’d recommend.

Hi Rob: Thank you for all your help this past 3 ½ years. You’ve been great to me and I appreciate everything you’ve done for me to help me get through this. It was good to work with you and your office. Thanks a lot and I really appreciate it all.


Rob was fantastic and very approachable. He kept me well-informed and moved things along quickly. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to other people. He did a good job standing up for my rights. It made me feel good knowing I could go to him any time.


Rob Hooper was so good that I would never use any other lawyer ever again. At the initial consultation he made me feel very comfortable and understood – I didn’t feel like I was talking to a lawyer in a suit. I could write you a full page on him, he’s awesome. I’ve actually referred him to a lot of other people too.


Mary, Just a quick note to thank you very much for the outstanding work you did representing me. Your intelligence and understanding was truly amazing and helped me remain confident through a trying time. Your hard work and dedication will always be remembered. I wish you all the best in your future endeavours. Thanks once again,


He’s the greatest guy I’ve ever met. When Rob was working with me he fought for me, literally. He was very thorough in everything he did. He made me feel comfortable and I would recommend him to my friends. Overall he was a very, very nice man.


Hello Robert: I would like to thank you very much on behalf of my sister and myself for your efforts on her behalf and for your patience and professional guidance through this process. She has been through a lot, but this part of her journey was made easier by your empathy and understanding and your honest and realistic assessment of her situation. Thank you again,


Very professional and personable. Kim impressed me with her knowledge of the law; she was straightforward and very clear. She worked very hard for me and was able to have my case settle. If you want the best then you definitely want to hire Kim. I cannot thank her enough for all she has done for me.
