How much will all of this cost?
It all depends upon the complexity of your case, the number of witnesses you have and the number of experts we will need to pursue your matter. In some circumstances some legal costs are paid by the general insurer. Those costs can be 50% – 70% of your final legal bill with us.
An estimated range of our costs is given to you at our initial consultation after getting details of your claim and assessing the complexity of the matter. Litigation matters are time costed. That is, we charge for the amount of time we put into your claim.
Not sure if you have a valid claim?
It costs nothing to speak to our principal lawyer and find out where you stand. Book in a free consultation with our litigation lawyers Gold Coast today.
What is no-win; no fee and how does it operate?
If we advise you that we consider your proposed claim has reasonable prospects of success and is economically viable to proceed, we will agree to take on your case on a “No Win – No Fee” basis. This simply means that we will only be paid a reasonable fee for the work we have done to win your case at the end of your claim if and only if you win or achieve a successful outcome.
A successful outcome is either a settlement or a favourable judgment award by a Court.
What happens if my case goes to trial and I lose?
In the unlikely or even highly unlikely event that your claim goes to trial, and in the even more unlikely event that your case goes all the way to trial and you lose, we will not seek to charge you anything for all of the work we have done for you.
Our “No Win – No Fee” policy does not provide an indemnity for the other side’s legal costs in the highly unlikely event that your case proceeds to trial and you lose.
If your case is unsuccessful or fails at trial, it is likely that the court would make an order that you pay the other side’s legal costs. This is likely to be a substantial sum.
Less than 2% of all general insurance matters proceed to trial.
