Brisbane injury lawyers
As one of the best No Win No Fee lawyers Brisbane, we believe that everyone has rights to get justice if they have suffered a loss, such as an injury due to someone else’s fault. You deserve legal representation, no matter what your ability to pay.
Our No Win No Fee (sometime called No Win No Pay) arrangement means that you get access to the best legal representation despite circumstances that would mean that you cannot pay for it out of your own pocket.
How does No Win – No Fee work?
It’s simple. With a No Win – No Fee arrangement, if your claim for compensation for injury fails, then you don’t need to pay any legal fees.
However, our record is very good. We usually settle with the defendant, and if we go to trial, we have an excellent record in winning.
We charge you at the end of your case and we get our payment from the proceeds of your claim.
If you recover nothing, you do not pay us anything
Depending upon the type of case you have, the insurance company may pay something in the range of 60% to 100% of your costs.
The costs we charge you are our professional fees plus disbursements. Disbursements include things like medical report fees and sometimes barristers fees that we pay on your behalf. However, we only charge you these fees at the end of your claim if you are successful.
There is no charge from us for telephone, facsimile, postage or other “miscellaneous” expenses.
We will take you through this arrangement in more detail in your free first appointment. Some people refer to No Win – No Fee, as No Win – No Pay.
A range of claims are covered at no risk to you paying from your pocket
We offer No Win – No Fee arrangements for many of our personal injury related legal services, including:
- Car/truck and other motor vehicle accident claims
- Workplace injury and disability claims
- Workplace discrimination and unfair dismissal
- Public Liability claims
- Medical negligence claims
What are the conditions on a No Win – No Fee arrangement?
We grant no win – no fee arrangements on a case to case basis.
To offer you a No Win – No Fee payment arrangement, we must satisfy ourselves that:
- Your claim has a good chance of winning
- Your financial circumstances demonstrate that you cannot afford to pay to take legal action using your personal resources
- You know of any costs to prepare and run your case
- You know that there is the risk of paying the defendant’s costs if your claim fails. This is not something that we can cover for you.
In some cases, such as complex medical negligence claims, you may be required to contribute to the upfront cost of the initial investigative reports. However, we’ll assess and discuss with you any likely additional costs before you agree to work with us.
