Our Proven Process to Make Insurance Pay

What Can I Expect From Schofield King Lawyers



Often we will be able to tell you whether you’re eligible to make a claim during or shortly after your first consultation with our lawyers. Sometimes, however, Negligence claims require investigations to be taken out prior to us being able to advise as to your eligibility. Either way, we will keep you informed throughout the process – and we will provide advice as to your eligibility as soon as we can.



In running a negligence claim, we are often able to gain enough evidence prior to commencing court proceedings to engage in settlement discussion with the Defendant and resolve your claim. However, if the Defendant is not willing to offer enough, and we feel your claim has reasonable prospects of success, we are more than willing to commence Court proceedings if necessary. If your claim needs to go to Court, the matter is generally put onto a court timetable where you are eventually allocated a hearing date. However, in our experience there are usually opportunities to settle your matter along the way. Our job is to give your case the best chance of settlement and maximise your compensation. We pride ourselves on being well prepared and therefore getting the best results for our clients.
