Every brain injury compensation claim is different. Your legal costs will depend on the amount of work your case requires, but you’ll only have to pay these fees if you’re awarded compensation. We manage all brain injury compensation claims on a No Win No Fee basis, so if your claim is unsuccessful, we won’t charge you anything. If you’re concerned that most of your special damages will go towards legal fees, there are laws in place to prevent this from happening. In Queensland, legislation states that clients must be awarded the majority of compensation awarded to their claim.
If you can’t reach a settlement with the other party, you may be required to make an appearance in court for your brain injury compensation claim.
In some cases, your legal representative can attend court on your behalf.
Where your attendance is required, engaging with a specialist personal injury lawyer can help make the court process less confusing.
In most personal injury claims, the insurer of the negligent party will pay for your compensation.
If the negligent party isn’t covered by insurance, any damages might have to come out of their own pocket.
However, it’s more common for insurance companies to pay.
Seeking the advice of a lawyer can help protect your case’s legal merit.
These are just some of the benefits of allowing a legal professional to manage your brain injury compensation claim:
- Experienced representation – Working with a qualified lawyer will ensure your claim is taken seriously.
- Lower costs – You might think representing yourself will save money, but inexperience with the law can lead to costly mistakes.
- Expert opinion – Australian and Queensland law can be complicated. Hiring a lawyer who works with legislation relevant to your case is the easiest way to achieve an optimal outcome.
In order to receive compensation, you’ll need to verify your claim with proof.
From photos to written reports, you can provide a range of materials in support of your case. By example, if you have been in a road traffic accident, there may be witness statements and police reports to add weight to your claim. If you suffered from a slip, trips or a fall, photographs and a better understanding of the cause is also helpful.
Medical records can be especially valuable in acquired brain injury compensation claims.
The duration of your case will depend on how complicated it is and whether the other party is willing to settle prior to going to court.
To help you get back on your feet, we’ll make every effort to reach a resolution within a short timeframe, without sacrificing the amount of compensation to which you may be entitled.
Whilst we won’t charge you any legal fees if your claim is unsuccessful, you may be required to pay for the other party’s legal costs. In short however, such consequences are extremely rare.
Before taking on your claim, we can provide you with more information about the above.
