You may already be financially stressed due to excessive medical expenses or losing income.
Speak to us for a no obligation cost-free consultation about your case. In the event that you have no case or poor chances of success, no fee will be charged. We will bear the expenses and close our file.
If you have a case and want to proceed with a claim, we will explain your options to you. You have the option of entering into a Contingency Fee Agreement which is regulated by law to protect you.
To determine whether your case has merits, we investigate a prospective claim at our own expense. The entire claim process, including investigation, medical assessments, travelling and accommodation arrangements and expenses, are covered by us. These costs are recovered from the capital (lump sum) award received at the end of the case.
We have an open file policy. The wheels of justice do turn slowly and often you may wonder how the process works or how something in the news affects your case. You can follow up about your case and the claim process at any time with one of our attorneys.
