In your important circumstance for your son, you will need a personal injury lawyer that specializes in victims of crime.

In this particular circumstance you will need to engage one of the major no win no fee lawyers that could run the case, such as Maurice Blackburn, but you will need to meet with these parities first.

The alternative is to meet with legal aid too, as they will consider such cases as well.

Have you spoken with legal aid yet ?
