As personal injury lawyers, we pride ourselves on being recognised as among the very best firms of lawyers in New South Wales.
This is not only because of our extensive experience in all areas of personal injury compensation, but also due to our firm’s structuring, which enables all of our lawyers to truly be specialists in their respective fields.
Personal injury is an umbrella term that encompasses many niche areas of compensation law that a personal injury lawyer practices in. These areas include:
- Medical Negligence
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
- Workers Compensation
- Public Liability
- Product Liability
- Sexual Abuse
- Travel Accidents
- Professional Negligence
At Stacks Goudkamp, our firm is structured in a way that enables practice groups to specialise in 1-2 areas of personal injury law. Although each lawyer has experience in various areas of personal injury law, their overwhelming expertise relates to 1-2 select fields.
This translates to you having the best-placed lawyer at any one time handling your compensation claim, to ensure you achieve the very best possible outcome.
What’s the benefit?
Most compensation firms in NSW employ personal injury lawyers to manage general practices. This means that these lawyers are often simultaneously working on cases across every single area of personal injury law listed above.
While this approach may be highly profitable for compensation law firms, it means that your general personal injury lawyers are often not specialists in the area of law in which you need them to be.
For example, medical negligence claims are notoriously complex and lengthy claims. A personal injury lawyer with a general practice (while managing other types of claims) may resolve 5 to 10 medical negligence cases over a 3-year period. While on the other hand, a specialised medical negligence lawyer at Stacks Goudkamp will resolve around 50 to 60 medical negligence claims over that same 3-year period.
The difference in these two approaches will have a direct impact on the outcome your lawyer can achieve. A more experienced medical negligence lawyer who deals with more cases will be able to comprehensively prepare your claim and strategically deal with all the issues which arise in a case.
Likewise, a lawyer who routinely deals with experts, insurance companies, insurance lawyers, barristers, mediators and judges in that specific area of law is always better placed to facilitate the resolution of your claim. While a ‘jack of all trades’ may competently assist you in your claim, they are unlikely to have the resources to maximise the result for you.
If you ever find yourself in the situation where you are making a compensation claim, it means that you have suffered undue hardship in your life.
Compensation claims have the potential to be life-changing processes for many reasons. In these circumstances, you owe it yourself (and your loved ones) to ensure you have the best legal representation fighting for the best outcome for you.
As experts in their areas, the specialist personal injury lawyers at Stacks Goudkamp are the best placed to achieve this for you.
If you or someone you know has been involved in a case of medical negligence you may be entitled to compensation. For more information and to arrange a free consultation please contact Stacks Goudkamp on (02) 4058 2715 or alternatively make an online enquiry.
