Do I have to go to Court to get a settlement? How long will it take and how much does it cost?
In practice, the vast majority of our claims are settled without having to go to Court. We have a strong record of pre-trial settlements.
Is the first consultation free?
We will guide you through the process as quickly as possible. We will seek expert medical advice from your doctors to ensure that your claim is settled at the right time. Most of the legal fees are paid by the Insurance Commission of Western Australia. We will answer all your questions about legal costs at the first consultation.
Can I claim damages arising out of the death of a family member?
The first consultation is free. We are happy to spend as much time as needed to examine your case and provide you with advice. There is no obligation if you do not proceed.
You may be able to claim on the basis that you are financially dependent on a family member. We will discuss this process with you and answer all of your questions.
