NSW Compensation Lawyers


In NSW, Compensation lawyers help people get compensation for their physical and psychological injuries. This compensation can cover a wide variety of expenses such as lost wages, medical expenses, rehabilitation expenses, property damage expenses, etc.

Compensation law is considered complex because there are many areas of personal injury. If you want to receive the maximum possible compensation, you should hire a compensation lawyer who specialises in your particular area of injury. For example, if you have suffered injuries due to a hospital’s carelessness, you can hire a medical negligence lawyer. If you have been injured in a car accident, a car accident lawyer can help you get the best compensation.

How much do compensation lawyers charge?

In NSW, compensation lawyers charge anywhere between 20% to 40% of your compensation payout. It might seem high, but in reality, if you file a compensation claim without a lawyer, the compensation payout you may receive would be half of what you had claimed. It is because insurance companies find loopholes to try and reduce the amount they have to pay you as compensation. If you had been in a car accident, the other party might also file a compensation claim. In such cases, if you do not have a good compensation lawyer whom you can consult, you can fall victim to such insurance companies and counter claims.

Where to find compensation lawyers?

You can find many compensation lawyers in NSW whom you can hire, but it may take a long time for you to get your compensation payout. It is because the industry average for settling claims is two years. If this feels too long and if you want a quicker settlement, you can choose Schreuders.

But we do not charge you a single dollar till we have helped you get the best compensation that you deserve. We also have a no-win, no fee lawyer’s policy at Schreuders.
