Lander & Co

Protecting Your Entitlements with a Personal Injury Attorney

Lander & Co. has been assisting and representing clients successfully for over 30 years with most types of personal injury claims. 

Our personal injury lawyers can represent you when dealing with a workplace injury, accident injury, public liability injury, occupier’s liability, and/or product and professional negligence/breach of statutory duty. We take a holistic, whole-person, multi-factorial approach to ensure your best interests are at the forefront. We look to support our clients, by making our services personal, professional, and cost-effective. 

When working with our team of personal injury lawyers in Canberra, you can expect the following structured process: 

  • First, we seek to establish rapport, understand you and your needs, and quickly seek to evaluate the prospects of a remedy and the evidence that we might require. We discuss legal fees, outline the required documents, and explore time limits. We also outline the steps to resolution. We follow up with written confirmation, after which we keep you in the loop at all material times. 
  • Our team of Canberra based injury lawyers then lodges the claim(s) on or with the relevant person or institution and progressively start to gather evidence. With your consent, we will start to gather documents such as statements, medical histories, clinical documents, witness statements, and expert reports as necessary and seek Counsel’s opinion if required. 
  • We enter negotiations once prognoses are clear within any time limits, and all statute-required material is available and served. Your involvement and instructions are sought throughout the entire process. If legal proceedings are unavoidable, we outline what to expect, provide the fullest possible cost disclosure, and assess the benefits and risks. 

Why Have Our Personal Injury Solicitor Represent You?

In short, we attempt to reduce as much stress and distress for you as possible, enabling you to focus on recovering your health and self-esteem and preserving your relationships. 

Claims usually follow the same process and, in essence, are as follows:

  • We assess, assemble, and serve the claim in the necessary format. 
  • The insurer seeks further particulars, to which we respond, with your input. 
  • Considerable evidence-gathering starts. 
  • The insurer assesses and determines liability. If denied, legal proceedings are necessary where we retain and consult counsel, as appropriate. 
  • If there is an acceptance of liability, the damages-assessment process proceeds. 
  • We negotiate the settlement once a prognosis is available. Time limitations apply. 
  • If there is contention and a hearing is necessary, we can retain counsel, and we prepare. 
  • The Court or Tribunal may determine both liability and quantum. 

When choosing to work with our workplace injury lawyers, remember that we are a team, and success relies on teamwork, staying on the front foot, giving, and expecting priority and frank exchanges. We value honesty, responsiveness, assistance, and clarity in our conduct and expect these of you. 

Trust our no-win no-fee personal injury lawyers to support you through your legal journey.
