As compensation lawyers in Melbourne, Geelong and Dandenong our services are available for our clients to access in all kinds of ways.

Injury claims come in all shapes and sizes and they are not often straight-forward or easy to understand for the individuals involved. If you have experienced an injury then it is entirely understandable that you may feel vulnerable, distressed and uncertain about how to proceed. When you engage a team of personal injury lawyers like Gordon Legal, our job is firstly, and primarily, to help you understand your legal rights and entitlements relating to the circumstances in which you have received your injury. Often this is the most confusing part of proceeding with your claim and receiving legal clarity from our team of experienced compensation lawyers in Melbourne, Geelong or Dandenong can help you to feel empowered about your recovery and better prepared to proceed with treatment options and the rest you need to recuperate.
How we can help
Medical expenses, transport costs, accommodation costs for support and carers like your family members and close friends – all of these expenses can add up and worrying about whether you can financially support yourself throughout your treatment can both directly and indirectly affect the success of your recovery.
You may be unsure whether your injury qualifies for compensation, which institution or governing body you need to submit a claim to, what sort of time limits apply to your claim, and how to fill in the paperwork. For example, when you sustain an injury in circumstances like vehicle accidents or slips and falls in a public space, it may appear unclear to you who is responsible for helping you to recover and how they are responsible. You may not believe that you correctly followed the process required for reporting your injury or the treatment that you received for it.
If you have sustained injuries in a car accident involving privately owned vehicles, or another type of road accident involving public transport, we can help you to locate the appropriate Victorian government body which will assess and handle your compensation claim. Often this is the TAC and there are time limits and specific guidelines which need to be adhered to for ensuring the best outcome for your claim. Compensation can come in the form of direct payments to you and payment directly to your treatment providers.
If you have sustained injuries or experienced distress relating to a medical procedure, prescribed medicines or treatments, you may be entitled to a claim for compensation against that health care provider. Serious injuries can often be debilitating, and the effort involved in filing for compensation can appear overwhelming, particularly if you are in the process of recovering. Our team of legal professionals possess extensive experience in helping people with serious injuries and understand how to offer the empathy and understanding that you need to proceed with your claim.
