How does the Personal Injury Process Work?
Personal injury claims let victims of accidents get money to pay for damages they’ve suffered. These include medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and many others. Our personal injury lawyers represent victims and fight against insurers and defendants to get their clients justice and cash compensation.
What are the steps to succeeding in your claim? Here’s what our lawyers will do for you:
The first step in any personal injury case is investigation. We work to prove that the defendant, who you wish to sue, is the at-fault party of your accident. This means they are responsible for the losses you’ve suffered.
In legal terms, this is called negligence. A negligent person is someone who should have acted with care around you, yet acted unreasonably and caused your injuries. Let’s take the example of a drunk driving crash.
- All reasonable drivers will take care not to cause crashes. In fact, drivers have a legal duty of care to drive carefully.
- A drunk driver will act unreasonably compared to a sober driver. They could speed, swerve, or go down the wrong lane.
- The drunk driver’s unreasonable actions cause a crash, which makes them liable for what happened.
Building Your Case
Once we know you have a valid case, our personal injury lawyers in Melbourne will use the hard evidence we’ve found to build a strong insurance claim or lawsuit. After we prove negligence through evidence, the next phase is proving all the ways you’ve been harmed because of your accident.
These harms are called damages, and they’re divided into three categories:
- Economic damages: Lost money you’ve suffered because of your accident. This includes medical bills, lost wages, property damage, lost potential income, and more.
- Non-economic damages: Harm that doesn’t have a strict cost, like the pain and suffering you’ve experienced, disfigurement, mental anguish, and much more. These can be worth far more than your economic damages.
- Punitive damages: In some cases, a jury may award punitive damages as a punishment against defendants who act extremely unreasonably.
Our lawyers will investigate every avenue of compensation you’re entitled to receive before we submit our claim or lawsuit. Your case may be worth much more than you think. If you receive any sort of settlement offer from an insurance company before you’ve spoken with us, do not accept it and call us immediately.
Once we know how much your case is truly worth through our investigation, we’re ready to demand compensation from the defendant and their insurer. Our lawyers are no stranger to the courtroom. If we must take your case to trial in order to win, we will do it. Not every lawyer will!
When we construct a case and pursue compensation, we take a personalized approach to every single case. Every case is a unique set of circumstances, so there shouldn’t be a one-size-fits-all approach to claims.
While your case is happening, we will keep you informed about everything that’s happening and how it is progressing, promptly. You’re already suffering from injuries. You shouldn’t have to suffer wondering what’s going on with your claim.
Are Your Services Expensive?
Victims of accidents already suffer from financial stress, but you do not have to worry about us adding more to the pile. The Schiller Kessler Group does not charge victims any fees unless we win your case. From consultation until a settlement is reached, or judgment awarded, your case is free.
If we win a case on your behalf, we will take a percentage of your settlement or award. This is called a contingency fee. We will discuss this percentage with you during your consultation because it varies depending on the type and strength of your case.
This fee arrangement gives you two advantages:
- If you lose your case and get nothing, you will owe us nothing at all for our services.
- It gives your Melbourne personal injury lawyer incentive to seek every penny you’re owed. The more successful you are, the more successful you are.
Any lawyer worth your time will explain to you how they can get you more money than fighting the insurance companies on your own. Some case types, like medical malpractice, are weighed so heavily against plaintiffs that a lawyer is absolutely essential to win your case.

How Much Could I Get from My Claim?
It’s impossible to say until we can examine the evidence in your case, but we can give some general guidance. First, if you have bills for your medical treatment or lost money from work, and you win your claim, the odds are good you’ll get money to pay for all of it.
Second, our aggressive approach means you may get more than you would with another lawyer or trying to pursue claims on your own. Our case results show some of our most successful claims, some reaching into the millions of dollars.
The best way to find out how much your case is really worth is to speak with a personal injury attorney. They will investigate what happened and how it affected you to reveal the true costs you are owed after your accident.
