No Win No Fee
WE GET IT
Compensation claims for injury are often run on a No Win No Fee basis which you would think means that you don’t pay a cent on legal fees if you are unsuccessful… however, be wary that most personal injury solicitors are not willing to wear the risk themselves, and therefore still charge for disbursements (that is any costs other than their time that they incur). This can still amount to a fairly hefty bill.
At Jameson Law, we have a guaranteed No Win No Fee Agreement including any disbursements we incur to run your case. This means that if your claim is not successful, we do not charge you anything. This allows us to maintain a high rate of success as we will let you know upfront, if we feel that your case will not win. We also always ensure our fees are fair and purely reflective of the work and effort we put into making your personal injury case a success. Any costs payable to Jameson Law will be deducted from, and will not exceed, any compensation that you are entitled to receive; you will not pay anything out of pocket.
Frequently Asked Questions.
A claim for personal injury compensation will be made against the driver’s (driver at fault) Compulsory Third Party better known as CTP insurer. You must establish that you have suffered a serious injury (non-minor injury) for example a brain injury and that you have suffered a loss as a result of the car accident.
It is extremely important that investigations commence as soon as a car accident occurs as the new CTP scheme places strict time limits as to when a claim form must be lodged. For this reason, you should contact our law firm immediately after an accident for legal advice.
The CTP insurer will attend to payment of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment, hospital and medical expenses, rehabilitation and medication. In addition, you can claim for loss of earnings, loss of enjoyment of life and pain and suffering as well reimbursement of all your out of pocket expenses relating to your injuries.
A large component of car accident claims is damages (compensation) for non-economic loss that is pain and suffering. The Motor Accidents Injuries Act 2017 dictates that an injured person is only allowed to claim for pain and suffering if the degree of whole person impairment is more than 10%. The maximum payout that an injured person can claim for pain and suffering is 521,000. This does not include your entitlements for past and future economic loss which is the loss of income.
At Jameson Law, our car accident lawyers guarantee to achieve the best possible outcome for your car accident compensation claim. You may also be eligible to claim for Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) as a result of Motor vehicle accidents claims are taken on a no win no fee basis which means that you will not pay for our legal fees unless we have successfully resolved your matter.
Pain and suffering is proved by medical evidence. This includes clinical notes and reports from treating doctors, diagnostic imaging reports (x-rays, MRIs, CT scans)as well as obtaining reports from doctors who are authorised to comment of the degree of impairment.
The maximum amount of compensation that can be awarded for pain and suffering is $521,000.
