Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Inc. Attorneys - We understand the frustration of being a victim

Malcolm Lyons Attorneys specialise in cases that involve injuries that were inflicted on you, and that wasn’t your fault. We understand the frustration of being a victim in a situation that could have been prevented, but you had no control over.

We deal with a number of head and brain injury claims and cases, including personal injury claims (head and TBI injuries included), Building and construction accidents, Electrocutions and gunshot accidents. These are just a few of the incidents we can make a case on for our clients.

We have the experience and expertise to help you

As the founder of personal injury legal practice in South Africa, we have the experience and the expertise to assist our clients with all their personal injury situations and cases. This kind, of course, requires a lot of investigation and analysis, in order to provide a case that produces a settlement compensation for our clients.

If you are involved in an injury or incident, where you have been hurt due to the acts of another person, we can possibly make a case on your behalf.

We would need to have an initial consultation with you, to get all the details and information from what happened. In most head and brain injury cases, the damages can be quite severed, either leaving the victim emotional traumatised, or even suffering from long-term brain damages.

Injuries caused by negligence 

Injuries caused by negligence or intent to cause harm can leave the injured person with expenses such as a hospital, doctor and possibly psychology bills, which can weigh heavy on your pocket, especially for something which wasn’t your fault.

These expenses can be included in the compensation amount you will be paid out. This is why, on your initial consultation, we will need to get an in-depth understanding of what happened, and details of the injury at hand.

We will need as much documentation, doctor letters, medical bills and photographs as you can provide us with, in order to compile a strong case against the person who injured you. From there, will communicate with you on the outcome of our analysis and together we can make a decision on whether or not to pursue your head injury claim to the next level.
