Pursuing legal rights to compensation under common law
Members pursue their legal rights for various reasons. Common motivations include:
- Wanting to be reimbursed for out-of-pocket medical expenses.
- Wanting to protect their family from loss of income.
- Wanting to be compensated for their pain and suffering.
- The legal system is now more accessible with a) an initial free, no-obligation consultations; and b) ‘no win, no fee’ models (note: disbursements may not covered by such arrangements), however always properly understand what your costs will be prior to commencing legal proceedings.
If you require independent legal advice, we recommend that you contact your Solicitor, Legal Aid, or you may search under “compensation lawyers” using the internet or Yellow Pages.
