How our team of the best compensation lawyers Sydney-wide operate

Clients often believe (or have been advised by other lawyers) that they only have one avenue of compensation available to them.

Our team excels in ensuring all possible compensation claims are being run. We see the full picture and are dedicated to getting you the results and compensation you deserve. For example, many clients may be entitled to not only a workers compensation claim, but also Total Permanent Disability (TPD) claims or work injury damages claims.

Our experienced team of lawyers have frequently been able to identify creative avenues for compensation claims. We ensure that every potential claim has been explored. We get a much better payout for our clients. That’s why we are confident and proud to call ourselves the best compensation lawyers in Sydney.

Understanding Minor Injury in NSW Motor Accident Claims

Some examples of ensuring that all avenues of compensation are explored are:

  1. When someone is injured on a building site, it is often the case that the party at fault (or partially at fault) may not be that person’s employer. Many times people only run workers compensation claims against their employer but it should always be the case that a detailed legal analysis is given to the circumstances surrounding the injury. It may be that people have significant entitlements that could be overlooked. Further, it is often the case that the negligence of another party is not obviously apparent, and this is why you should have a claim which involves injury on a building site checked by our compensation lawyers in Sydney.
  2. Many people who are injured and unable to work have existing claims such as a workers compensation claim. However, much of the time they have not checked whether they have TPD insurance in their superannuation. They may not know whether they have insurance of hundreds of thousands of dollars or sometimes more. We’ve been able to successfully run TPD insurance claims when clients have had other representation and didn’t even know they had the cover! If you’re injured, sick and unable to work, please let our Sydney Compensation lawyers check whether you have any additional entitlements.
  3. Cases where people are employed by a work agency who places them at a work place. The person may have a Workers Compensation case against the employment agency, but may be able to have a public liability negligence case against the ‘host’ employer.

Generally, time limits apply in almost all compensation cases in Sydney and NSW. You should ensure you get a local compensation lawyer onto you case as soon as possible. It’s another reason that we’re the best compensation lawyers Sydney has – we know the local legal environment better than anyone.

You can expect our team to comprehensively investigate potential causes of action and after getting a thorough understanding as to how the injuries have affected your life, we can attempt to settle your matter so that you can move on with your life. However, if an insurer isn’t willing to pay the money we think your claim is worth, we’re happy to pull the trigger and fight for you. We’re all about achieving the most we can for our clients in the most efficient manner possible.

How Do Fees Work At Schofield King Lawyers?

At Schofield King Lawyers, it is important to us that you understand how costs can affect your claim. In many cases the insurer or the other side will be responsible for paying a portion of the costs incurred in your claim. We act on a No Win, No Fee arrangement in Compensation matters.

We are open to discuss different fee options which may include lump sum and/or hourly rate agreements.

Who pays the costs of medical reports or other costs necessary to run the case?

Sometimes we will need to spend money on your case to help make sure you maximise your compensation. These payments are called disbursements, and include costs of medical reports, expert reports, barrister’s fees, filing fees etc. These are necessary to make or enhance your claim.

Disbursements will be charged on top of any fees. At Schofield King Lawyers we have flexible options for funding these disbursements. In terms of smaller disbursements, the firm will normally be in a position to meet those as they come. For some disbursements, which may exceed $1000.00, we normally obtain funding and we are able to facilitate that on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.

You will never need to pay any money upfront for the running of your claim.

Will the other side pay any of my costs?

Depending on the kind of litigation, generally there is a rule that the unsuccessful party must pay the successful party’s legal costs. This means that if your matter runs in court or a tribunal and you win, then the other side must pay a portion of your costs. Conversely, if you lose you may have to pay the other side’s costs.

When a matter is settled out of court, then the settlement figure will often include the compensation value and an amount to cover some of the costs incurred. This figure will often be somewhere between 50% to 75% of the final costs that you will pay, with the remainder coming directly out of your compensation settlement.

There are some courts/tribunals that are ‘non costs jurisdictions’ which means that generally, costs are not payable by the unsuccessful party. For example, the Fair Work Commission or the Anti-Discrimination Board. This means that all costs must come directly out of any settlement.

In any cases we will advise you of the approximate value of any costs that will come out, so that you are always aware of how much will be left in your hand after costs come out.

We are open and transparent about our costs.
