Today it is recognised as one of the leaders in its field both locally and internationally.

We have earned awards

The firm has many significant achievements. These include the earning of the highest award for general damages for a road accident victim in the country and the protection of the rights of more than 3,000 local people suffering from asbestos disease.

Malcolm Lyons Attorneys are experts when it comes to personal injury cases

Our legal expertise proved time and time again through thousands of court cases, where our clients have been the innocent victims in a personal injury incident.

These incidents can happen without warning and could have been prevented. By law, shopping malls, building sites etc., have a liability insurance for incidents like this. If you happen to slip on a wet floor whilst shopping for groceries, and there is no wet floor sign in place, you have the right to claim against that store.

We are the ones who will help you build your legal case against the plaintiff, and get the compensation you deserve for injuries, medical bills and pain and suffering. The injury could be minor, however, there are instances when you may require hospital care, surgery, physiotherapy and ongoing medical checkups. These all cost a fine fortune when added up.

It’s unfortunate, but accidents happen every day and cannot be predicted. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident you may need to seek slip and fall compensation from the responsible party.

Claims for compensation can be sought for:

  • Past and future loss of income/support
  • Past and future medical fees and treatment
  • Bereavement and funeral costs

Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Inc. has attorneys specialised in personal injury claims and will provide you with professional guidance and assistance from the first consultation. We will establish the merits of your claim, the conditions influencing your fall and subsequent injuries, and determine the party responsible.

If your claim is provable we will facilitate the collation of the relevant supporting documents such as; witness statements, proof of financial losses, medical fees and therapies to estimate an appropriate compensation.

The legal process of proving an action entails intimate knowledge of personal injury law and the litigation required, instead of wasting precious time trying to figure it all out, let Malcolm Lyons & Brivik Inc do it for you. We will ensure your claim reaches a satisfactory resolution and compensation.
