You may be entitled to make a claim if you have incurred medical expenses or lost time from work because of your injuries.
We will obtain all relevant details, including your circumstances before the accident, and the impact it has had on all aspects of your life to ensure you claim for all the compensation you are entitled to.
We feel that Court should be considered a last resort. If the parties follow the proper financial disclosure procedures this will help to narrow the issues in dispute and facilitate an agreement which can be formulated for approval by the Court. This approach saves in legal costs and allows you to move forward with your life sooner.
Time limits do apply for these matters. It is important you obtain advice at an early stage to ensure steps are taken to properly prepare your case in a timely fashion.
Wills & Estates
Applying for Probate is the formal process for obtaining approval from the Supreme Court that the Will is valid. Not every Will requires Probate. We can provide advice as to what action needs to be taken in your particular case.
Even though a person has the right to decide what to put in their Will, the law in Australia recognises that eligible people may make a claim if they have been left out of a Will or have been left with little. We can advise you on the procedural requirements, time limitations for making a claim and, importantly, whether you are an eligible person.
You should consider reviewing you Will whenever your circumstances change. For example, marriage and divorce are two significant life events that may need to be taken into account in your Will.
