How do I know which lawyer to choose?

Making a personal injury claim can be complicated and take a long time. After a major trauma it is important you have someone who understands you, your injury and the needs of your family, both now and in the future.

To assist you and your family, Cardinal Management have reviewed firms who specialise in helping people who have suffered major trauma. We have identified a number of local firms who we feel will give you the right kind of support from a legal and importantly from a rehabilitation perspective.

Each of the firms at your hospital are committed to helping you recover as well as making a successful claim. They are all subject to ongoing performance management and must report to the MTSP regularly to ensure patients are being supported effectively and at no cost.

Even if you do not wish to use any of our suggested firms, there are a number of things to ask and check before agreeing to let someone represent you. Ask to meet with your MTSP Adviser who can give you advice about this and a free copy of our “choosing a personal injury lawyer checklist”.
