Who can make a Negligence Claim?

If you have suffered an injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to a claim for compensation.

Such claims may include:

  • injurites at a house,
  • building site,
  • workplace,
  • or other public place.

Further the person or party at fault may include a host employer, a professional such as a doctor or even another person.

Even if you think that you are somewhat at fault, you may still have a case.

What about legal costs?

Schofield King Lawyers act on a No Win No Fee basis in all Negligence Claims. This means that you do not pay a cent until the matter is settled or judgement received in your favor.

If you don’t receive any damages then you don’t pay. Thankfully we have been able to get millions of dollars in compensation for our clients over the years.

We also make sure that you are not liable for Expert and Medical Reports, and that the payment of these disbursements is only made after the successful completion of your case.

What some of our clients say

“Schofield King Lawyers have changed my life. I was always kept up to date on where my case was at. I was referred to them from someone who had previously experienced their service. I too, highly recommend their service to anyone seeking legal advice.”

– Eric

“As somebody who has never had anything to do with the legal system I was quite intimidated by the whole process, however right from my first meeting with Andrew, I felt in good hands. I trusted him to take care of me and do the right thing for/by me. My case was finally settled “out of court” with a better result than we first anticipated. This has helped relieve financial pressure and also allow me to pursue a new direction in life. A mere thank you seems insufficient… Godbless your team.”
