Splatt Lawyers carries 100% of the risk of your legal matter.
When you work with a Queensland personal injury law firm on your compensation case, you could feel stressed or anxious about the size of your legal bill. It would help if you had legal expertise to win your claim, but the time of an expert lawyer is not cheap. So it’s pleasing to know that Splatt Lawyers has a pricing cap on all legal services.
In Queensland, Section 347 of the Legal Profession Act stipulates how accident lawyers can charge you for their services. The maximum they can bill is 50% of your net settlement payout. Kerry Splatt played a central role in having this legislation introduced in Queensland. This cap does not mean you will be charged half of your payout for managing your claim; it simply means no law firm can exceed 50% billing.
Splatt Lawyers uses independently audited time billing. You will be charged for the hours of work it takes to achieve a successful outcome. Simple matters with clear liability require less work, so your bill would be lower. Complex cases take more time but often lead to a more substantial outcome.
NOTE – Unlike other law firms, we do not charge any additional fee (sometimes known as an uplift fee”) when we win your case.
Most people only have one personal injury claim in their lifetime and will often choose a No Win, No Fee lawyer to manage their case. It is natural to consider how you will be charged and who is checking my bill for accuracy. Most Queensland compensation law firms use timed billing, which means your legal team will charge you by the hour for work on your matter; they should not be charging a percentage of your payout. At the same time, some law firms might use questionable billing procedures; an external legal costing firm reviews all Splatt Lawyer’s legal files. They’re responsible for examining how we bill every legal file so our fees are open and honest. We’re committed to fair treatment for all our Queensland clients.
It is common for people to want to know the value of their compensation claim. When you have been injured and need funds to pay your bills, how much you might receive for your legal matter will be top of mind. The purpose of your payout is to restore your life to your previous position had your accident not happened. The factors that impact the value of your compensation include:
