What do compensations lawyers do?
Compensation lawyers can help if you have been injured, either physically or psychologically, and want to make a compensation claim. Physical and psychological injuries can happen at work, in a public place, a private place, in a motor vehicle, or anywhere else. If you suffer an injury due to negligence or breach of duty by another person, you may be entitled to bring proceedings for damages against them.
We will assess your case for free, and our expert compensation lawyers can then begin common law proceedings. Most compensation claims are settled before they go to court, which is why having an experienced compensation lawyer can make a huge difference. With more than 118 years of experience, we have the know-how to assist during complex claims scenarios, ensuring you get the outcome you need and deserve.
How do I find a good compensation lawyer?
When it comes to your health and future, it’s not wise to work with an inexperienced lawyer. Taylor & Scott Lawyers have a long history of successful negotiations, winning compensation claims since 1905 for Australians and visitors to our shores. An experienced compensation lawyer will give you an advantage when it comes to getting desired results quickly and efficiently. Compensation claim procedures are undertaken during stressful times and clients don’t want a long, drawn-out claim situation.
Access to a well-resourced firm such as Taylor and Scott provides the backing of a company geared up to take on even the most complex of cases. Your health is too important to take risks with, so it’s important to find a compensation lawyer who remains up to date and dedicated in their respective compensation field. Taylor & Scott compensation lawyers deliver strong representation with honesty, integrity, and transparency.
Can I get a second opinion with a compensation lawyer?
If you are injured due to someone’s negligence, it’s wise to get a second medical opinion. If your claim is part of workers compensation, a consultation with an independent doctor may be required. In addition, if you are not satisfied with the initial advise from a compensation lawyer, a second opinion from Taylor & Scott Lawyers may be the right option. We offer a free 40-minute initial consultation on personal injury claims, and you may be eligible for our no-win-no-fee structure. We assist you in the fight for your legal rights in personal compensation matters, including deferring payment of our professional fees and expenses until your matter has been successfully resolved.
If Taylor & Scott Compensation Lawyers believe you have a good case they will take on your claim, providing you with financial peace of mind. In most cases, we will also pay all associated costs including medical records searches, witness statements and expert opinions. However, it’s worth noting that if you lose your case, a court might still order you to pay the other side’s costs. For this reason, a second Taylor & Scott opinion can be a compensation claim game-changer. If you come to us for a second opinion, you can be assured that our advice is based on more than a century of experience and a strong record of results.
Do I need A Compensation Lawyer?
If you are going to make a claim, or feel you have a valid claim, a compensation lawyer can navigate through the complex system and help maximise any damages. Negligence arises, in the most part, when a person or an organisation fails to take reasonable steps to ensure the welfare of others within their jurisdiction, particularly when dangers or hazards could have been avoided. In compensation claims, a person must first be found to be liable, and then the extent of any damages is assessed.
The procedures for claiming damages or injury, and the calculation of those damages can vary depending on how or where the injury was sustained. Taylor & Scott legal expertise covers a broad range of personal injury matters, so speaking to one of our compensation lawyers will disclose your claim’s potential outcome. If your claim has merit, retaining the services of Taylor & Scott Lawyers is a smart move toward receiving the compensation you deserve.
