Finding the best lawyers in Victoria to assist you with your personal injury claim is an important decision since insurers have mandates to pay out the least amount of money possible – whether or not it reflects the severity of the injury or the subsequent personal, mental or physical costs to the individual.
We provide a free consultation, no matter the size of your claim or case. If you do decide to hire us, we will immediately go to work for you.
Our main objective is to get you back on your feet and because we have over 35 years experience in personal injury law, we’re able to connect you with the medical professionals you need – not the ones the insurers want you to see.
Our experts will become your voice in discussions with insurers, medical representatives and any other parties involved in your case. By letting us act on your behalf, you’re able to focus on the most important issue: your recovery.
You might assume that every lawyer would want to do what’s best for their client. However, sometimes lawyers can be just as guilty as insurance companies of playing the numbers game. They avoid going to trial if possible because it’s quicker and easier to settle out of court. They don’t dedicate their efforts to gathering and examining evidence because it’s time-consuming and difficult. They don’t want to answer your questions or take your calls because it takes effort to explain the situation and the options available.
At Acheson Law, it is our goal to be a different kind of personal injury law firm, one that prioritizes our clients’ needs and interests over our own convenience or financial gain. Suffering a personal injury after an accident that wasn’t your fault is an extremely challenging situation for anyone to find themselves in. You can be left feeling uncertain, wondering how you’re going to pay for your recovery or worried about making ends meet because you have to take time off work in order to recover. You deserve a legal team that understands and empathizes with your situation – not one that views you as another case to help them keep the lights on.
Of course, any firm can say this. That’s why we put a lot of effort into providing a variety of opportunities and benefits to all of our clients, including the following:
While reading online reviews is something that a lot of us do to evaluate local businesses, including law firms, it is understandable that if you are dealing with a serious injury you might want more than that. If you would like to talk to one of our former clients, we’d be happy to put you in touch so that they can give you an honest assessment of what it’s like to work with Acheson Law.
We are proud of our extensive and impressive history of legal work. However, every case is unique and we would never mislead you into thinking that you’re going to receive more compensation than is likely in your particular case. While unrealistic expectations might make one feel better in the moment, it’s important to stay grounded when dealing with injury cases.
One of the reasons that some lawyers don’t handle cases with the same efficiency and care as Acheson Law is simply because they don’t have the staff needed to give their cases the attention they deserve. When you work with Acheson Law, you will never have to worry about this. We are completely capable of handling your case, no matter what the size or complexity.
There can be obvious, real benefits to avoiding trial and settling out of court. It’s quicker, easier and generally cheaper for everyone involved. That being said, some attorneys avoid going to trial at all costs, even if it means accepting less compensation than their client deserves. At Acheson Law, we certainly consider settlement an option, but only if it meets our – and our clients’ – requirements for fair and reasonable compensation. Otherwise, we will gladly go to trial to defend our clients’ rights.
