Our 5 Step Process for Abuse Claims
We are well attuned to the unique needs of abuse survivors. Through our simple 5 step process, we’ll ensure you are treated with understanding, dignity and respect throughout the entire legal process.
Recovery from traumatic events can take a long time. It’s helpful if you have people in your life who understand and will give you the space to heal. At Littles, we encourage you to talk to and rely on the support of family, friends and professionals such as a GP, counsellor or psychiatrist. In addition, we can also refer you to specialist support services including:
- Emotional support while providing details of the abuse suffered
- Assistance during meetings with your lawyers
- Medical and psychological support
- Drug and alcohol support services and groups
- Support in communications with government departments
The first step you need to take is to get in touch with one of our friendly team members. Our experts will assess your case and advise you whether you should proceed – within 24 hours. We can also help you access support services.
If we establish that you should proceed with your claim, we will assign you to one of our specialist lawyers for a FREE no obligation chat. They will go through the details of your case and discuss how your claim will proceed. Every case is different and we tailor our services to the particular needs of each client. We will give you an estimate of the length of your claim at this meeting. This part of the process is obligation free – you can walk away at any time.
We’ll commence a claim against the person or company responsible for your injury. In most instances, it’s the insurance company who will be paying your compensation, not the person or company themselves.
We’ll present a strong case for you and be there every step of the way to advocate and fight to achieve the result you deserve. Most claims are settled through negotiation and do not proceed to court, saving you time and money.
