Clark Toop & Taylor are a law firm specialising in compensation recovery. If you have been injured on the road, or at work, or in a public place, or you have suffered from medical or professional negligence, then we can help.
We are one of the leading compensation law firms in Victoria. Unlike most other law firms, our partners established the business and continue to work on every case. This means that you have the experience and support of a large law firm with the personal attention of an experienced senior partner working for you. This personal attention ensures the best outcome for you. If you have any questions or would like to come in and discuss your matter, we would be happy to help you. Please contact us for a free first interview.
At Clark Toop & Taylor, we have a fee structure in place to ensure that all people
can fight for their legal rights, despite the cost of upfront legal fees. We will
only charge professional fees if the outcome is successful. We assist you from the
beginning to prosecute your case, by deferring payment of our professional fees
and expenses until the claim has been resolved.
If we investigate your circumstances and think you have a case, we will not ask you for any money until the successful conclusion of your claim.
In most instances, we will also pay all the running costs until your case has been resolved. This is called no win, no charge. A 'win' is defined as you recovering money from the opponent and/or for legal costs and expenses either at trial or by settlement.
Therefore, if you don't get paid, we don't get paid. This is a promise we make to you.
Please feel free to ask any questions on all conditions at your initial free interview.
