A class action against an insurance giant following the devastating Carwoola bushfires in 2017 has progressed with lawyers calling on anyone impacted to join the suit.
A group of about 70 residents and landowners have registered with Maddens Lawyers to progress a class action against CGU Insurance Australia.
Maddens Lawyers principal Kathryn Emeny said there were important developments occurring in the class action which meant it was a good time for people to register their interest if they had not already done so.
"In the coming weeks there will be experts in the Carwoola area meeting with members of the class action to assist them in recording and quantifying the loss and damage they suffered as a result of the fire," Ms Emeny said.
"This is a really important step for each group member in advancing their claim.
"We are aware there are others that were impacted by the fire but have not yet been in contact with us. I'd encourage those people to act promptly and let us know of their circumstances."
Maddens Lawyers were given the green light to start the case in August last year when the NSW Supreme Court found against CGU, who had denied all liability.
The fire, which began when a plumbing company employee used steel cutting equipment during a total fire ban and sparks ignited nearby grass, burned about 3500 hectares and destroyed 11 homes.
