Are These Reasons Holding You Back from Speaking to a Compensation Lawyer?


Have you had an injury while at work but have put off approaching a compensation lawyer for advice as you feel you may be partly responsible for the accident? You’re not alone. Every year, many accidents that could have won compensation have gone without a claim ever being filed.

Many Australians don’t feel confident to approach a compensation lawyer after an accident or injury at work, but the majority of the reasons holding you back shouldn’t. We don’t want you to miss out on the compensation you deserve and don’t let these reason hold you back from seeking legal advice:

We offer a free, no obligation case assessment

Many Australians are put off approaching lawyers because they don’t believe they have the funds. Taylor & Scott offer a free, no obligation case assessment where we discuss your injury, the accident you had and can offer legal advice moving forward. If your case will not benefit from our legal expertise, then you are free to walk away at no cost.

No win, no fee, and no upfront costs

There is no obligation to file a claim after a case assessment, but if you do, then you still won’t need to pay a thing moving forward. Where applicable we will file an application for a grant of legal assistance, which covers all costs associated with your claim. We know that you are already under an intense amount of stress, so we won’t add any financial pressure to the mix.

We also work under a no win, no fee policy. That means you will only pay us for our work if you win your case.

You can still claim compensation if the accident was your fault

It is a common misconception that you cannot claim compensation if the accident was partially or entirely your fault. This is where you will need the expertise of a compensation lawyer to look at every aspect to determine the sequence of events leading up to the accident and the impact of your contributory negligence.

It’s our job to gather the material needed to support your claim

The legal system is often overwhelming to those who aren’t familiar with it. That’s why there are lawyers to help you! It’s our job to understand what you may not, and with our skill, knowledge and experience, you’ll be far likelier to achieve a successful claim.

We don’t just represent you against the defendant in court. We work with you throughout the process, providing support, advice and defence when you need it most.

  • Gathering the evidence needed to win a case
  • Advising what you are entitled to
  • Resolving disputes with efficiency
  • Efficient and organised completion of paperwork
  • Advice on big decisions
  • Research on specific areas of your case, plus previous experience

We’ll help you understand your rights

Many people don’t understand what they are entitled to when it comes to a workplace accident. Maybe you think the accident or injury isn’t serious enough to warrant compensation, or you may be worried about the repercussions from your workplace if you do file a claim. Moreover, even if you do want to file a claim, you may not know where to start.

We can sit down with you and discuss your rights in a free, no-obligation case assessment, explaining what you are legally entitled to, and how the process works from start to finish. We aim to give you as much information as possible so you are not left in the dark.

As compensation lawyers, it’s our job to help you receive the compensation you deserve. Regardless of how your accident occurred, if you think you have a claim, you can speak to our expert lawyers on 1800 600 664 or get in touch with us to book your free, no-obligation case assessment.

At Taylor & Scott, We Care For You.
