At Formston Bromfield Lawyers, we understand that the difficulties already faced after an accident are enough to cause you and your family significant stress and anxiety. Should you decide to pursue an injury law claim for compensation, our team will provide you with assistance, support, and guidance throughout the entire injury law claims process to assist in alleviating some of the burden.
- Assess your potential injury law claim for compensation, and advise you of your prospects and the process for which your claim will be made;
- Guide you through the pre-Court process, which includes the preparation and lodgement of relevant documentation, information gathering and assessment, and arrangements for medico-legal assessment of your injuries;
- Negotiate on your behalf, whether these negotiations occur on an informal basis or at a more formal mediation conference of which we will attend with you.
The costs associated with pursuing a injury law claim for compensation depend on a number of factors that include but are not limited to the complexity of the claim and the legislation under which the claim is made, the nature of the injuries and treatment sought, and the factual circumstances requiring evidentiary support. Before you retain us, we will discuss relevant costs with you and provide you with documentation outlining these costs and the circumstances upon which we will act on your behalf.
Generally, costs are categorised as follows:
- Professional Fees – These are the fees associated with our professional advice and legal services provided to you by the firm, such as discussions with your lawyer and preparation of documentation and correspondence;
- Disbursements – These are fees and charges to be incurred during the conduct of your claim by 3rd parties or costs internally incurred on your behalf, for example medical record administration payments when obtaining your clinical history or on account of courier and mail charges.
Our professional services are commonly provided on a ‘no-win-no-fee’ basis, which means that you may not be required to pay any professional fees should you claim be unsuccessful. The ‘no-win-no-fee’ arrangement applies only to the professional fee component of your legal costs, and is offered on a case-by-case basis. Particulars of this offer will be discussed with you in detail prior to any retainer with us, and we will ensure that you are given time to ask questions and seek clarification on any points of uncertainty prior to executing any retainer documentation.
