What To Expect From Us

1 • We listen

The first step is a conversation and we make sure we understand your situation. We can also explain your rights and entitlements, and whether you have a valid claim.

2 • We build your case

Once we confirm you have a valid claim, we’ll work with you to gather evidence. If you have suffered a personal injury, this evidence might be a medical assessment.

3 • We put your claim forward

With everything in order, we’ll put your claim forward to the insurer. If the claim is accepted, the insurer will offer you a settlement. We’ll let you know how much you should accept.

4 • We represent you, if needed

If we don’t reach a settlement agreement, you have the option to take the matter to court. We will guide you through litigation, represent you and advocate for your rights.

5 • We celebrate

If your claim is successful, we’ll make sure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.

Your Voice Deserves To Be Heard

Traditionally, the law has been dominated by lawyers who were able to effectively represent their clients through an understanding of the law, but often did not effectively communicate with their clients.

As new generation lawyers, we strive to not only provide you with legal advice through our comprehensive understanding of the law, but also to ensure that each of our clients feel a personal connection to their legal team.

The relationships we build with our clients are based on trust and protection. When you work with us, you know your rights are being protected and your claim is being handled efficiently and effectively.

The Melinda Griffiths team always makes ourselves available for discussions with our clients, either via telephone or face to face. If you are unable to attend our offices, we will arrange another way to communicate and connect that you’re comfortable with.

At Melinda Griffiths Lawyers, we are unified by a central belief: that empathy is the key to effective representation. Our compassion and personal approach to legal representation is what distinguishes us from other lawyers.


Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of compensation can I expect to receive from a legal claim?

The amount of compensation you receive from a claim will depend on the type of claim you are pursuing. However, generally, compensation can include:

1. Economic loss: Compensation for any financial losses resulting from the incident, such as loss of income, medical expenses, and property damage.

2. Non-economic loss: Compensation for any physical or psychological harm suffered as a result of the incident, such as pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional distress.

3. Future losses: Compensation for any future financial losses or expenses resulting from the incident, such as ongoing medical treatment or loss of future income.

How long will it take to resolve my legal claim?

Each case is unique, and there is no set timeline for resolving a legal claim. We will be able to provide you with an estimated timeframe for your case based on the specific circumstances involved.

Most cases are settled out of court through negotiation which can help achieve a faster resolution of the case. However, if the case proceeds to trial, it can take up to 18 – 24 months to reach a resolution.

What evidence do I need to support my legal claim?

The evidence required to support your claim will depend on the type of claim being pursued and the specific circumstances of the case. However, some common types of evidence that may be useful include:

• Medical records and reports
• Witness statements
• Photographs and videos
• Police reports
• Expert reports

Do I need a lawyer to pursue a legal claim?

While it is possible to pursue a claim without a lawyer, it is generally not recommended, especially for complex claims. Lawyers can provide valuable legal advice, help you navigate the legal process, and work to protect your interests.
