Workers’ Compensation

When you have been injured at work, your life can be turned upside down. On top of the personal impact of your workplace injury on your health and wellbeing, it can be a stressful time financially, with sudden costs and loss of income. We understand that tackling the WorkCover claims system at this time can feel daunting or overwhelming. Our friendly lawyers are experts in this area of the law – and handle many successful compensation claims for our clients.

We offer our No-Win No-Fee option for these types of claims – so you don’t have to worry about paying for legal advice on top of everything else that’s going on.

Seeking compensation for your pain and suffering can be difficult enough without the added burden of legal fees.

TAC claims and Road Accidents

When you are involved in a road accident, legal fees are the last thing you need to add to your plate. Making a TAC claim can feel stressful or overwhelming enough when you are trying to focus on your recovery, or already dealing with the costs related to your road accident or injury.

We offer No-Win No-Fee for TAC claims so you can pursue your claim stress-free. Our lawyers are experts in this highly specialised area of the law and can help you with your TAC claim no matter what stage of the process you are up to.

Public Liability claims

Nobody expects to be injured when they are in a public place. Some of the most common types of public liability claims we see are related to slips, trips and falls in commercial, retail or other public spots. When this happens to you, you may find yourself suddenly burdened with medical bills, travel expenses, loss of income and other inconveniences. The cost can stack up. That’s why we offer our legal services in this area with our No-Win No-Fee option. Our expert lawyers can help you achieve compensation without the stress of up-front legal fees

Medical Negligence

Everyone has the right to expect professionalism and care from their GP or other healthcare provider. When this isn’t the outcome, the impact can be devastasting. If you or a loved one have suffered medical negligence, it can be extremely distressing and traumatic. Taking on a legal case on top of everything else can feel daunting, both emotionally and financially.

We offer a free initial consultation and our legal services in this area on a No-Win No-Fee basis so you don’t have to worry about payment unless your medical negligence claim is successful

Asbestos and other dust diseases

We offer our legal services in this area on a No-Win No-Fee basis so you can get started on your claim for compensation as soon as possible, without worrying about upfront costs and legal fees.

Other areas of the law

There are other areas of the law and certain cases that may be eligible for No-Win No-Fee. We can assess your case to determine whether it will be eligible for our No-Win No-Fee agreement. If you have any questions about whether or not your case may be eligible, you can call us anytime on 1800 21 22 23.

Peter Gordon

If you look at all of the most important legal breakthroughs for ordinary people in the last 30, 40 or 50 years — asbestos victims over James Hardie, women with defective breast implants, or whether it’s for people with medically acquired HIV or victims of religious institution sexual abuse — all have been under a no-win, no-fee basis. If those people were required to pay up front James Hardie, for example, would have got away scot-free. No-one reasonable would consider that to be a just outcome.

Frequently Asked Questions

Once you have found out whether you have a claim, Gordon Legal will manage your claim and take care of the legal process on your behalf. How long a claim can take will vary depending on the type of claim and the severity of the injury and whether your injury has stabilised.

If your claim is successful, we’ll process your payment as soon as we receive it. The amount you receive will depend on your impairment level, and the law that covers your claim. The range of compensation you may receive include payments that equate to a percentage of you weekly earnings, along with payments for all reasonable medical and associated expenses. In some cases, where the injury is permanent you may be eligible for lump sum compensation which can be a significant amount.

As each client is different, your legal fees will reflect this, it will depend on the amount of work the lawyer has completed. In general, if a case requires more work the legal fees may be higher. Fees are based on either an hourly rate agreed upon between Gordon Legal and our client or based on rates set by law. Your lawyer at Gordon Legal will always explain all the rights and obligations of the no win no fee service to ensure you comprehensively understand the agreement. It is important to remember that under a no win no fee agreement payment of legal fees does not occur until a successful outcome is reached. Once the case is successful, the legal fees are deducted from your settlement.

No win no fee is suited to personal injury cases where it is essential to progress claims as soon as possible, and it provides an option for those who cannot pay legal fees upfront. No win no fee is available to you whether you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, work accident, or a slip and fall incident.

For no win no fee claims it is in the lawyer’s best interest to ensure the success of your claim, as it will mean that they are fully reimbursed for their work. This also means that the lawyer will be upfront about the prospect of success.
