CONTROL© AUDIT consistently delivers big compensation payouts to genuine VICTIMS OF MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE

Everyone loves to have control. It makes us feel safe. Secure. Superior even.

Whether it’s controlling the dog on an afternoon walk, or controlling your plans with friends. Perhaps it’s controlling the team at work or your personal finances. Perhaps it’s being the most successful person in your group. Whatever it is, it’s a big deal!

We are all humans. We all crave control. And that’s okay.
Most understand. Most also understand it can drive you crazy because…
Not all things in life can be controlled.
No matter how hard you try, some circumstances are unforeseeable.
You can do all of your research on doctors. You can chat to your friends for recommendations. You can scour the hospital websites. But it's not going to stop you from receiving poor medical treatment.
And once you are victim of the incident, you can feel as though you’re on a slippery slide. But unlike a normal slippery slide, you haven’t initiated the descent. Someone has put you at the top and pushed you.
Because nobody ever goes to a doctor if they know they are going to treat them poorly, right?

"Nobody ever goes to a doctor if they know they are going to treat them poorly, right?"

You can never be certain when that will happen.
Unforeseen incidents can rob you of your ability to work. Your ability to play. Your ability to have independence. Your ability to have control of your life.
And you shouldn’t be robbed of any more than you have. After all, you’ve worked hard. You've done your research. You've spoken to your friends. You've called around. You don’t deserve to be robbed of any more.
Insurance for the medical system is designed to protect doctors from medical negligence claims. And the insurers are king at delay and denial tactics.
And the best way to defeat delay and denial tactics from an insurer is with a lawyer. A lawyer that you can control.

We understand, that sounds impossible...

Lawyers can take you for a wild ride when they're in control.

It’s really quite easy. You take control by quite literally using CONTROL©.
What is CONTROL©?
It is a simple audit process to put you back in the driver’s seat.
A seven step process to guarantee faster, fairer payouts. A process to refine and perfect the quality of the legal advice you receive. A bulletproof process for total certainty.
The seven step CONTROL© Audit is simple. Each letter of the word is a step in the process. And together, the steps guarantee every element of work performed, every piece of legal advice, is in your control:
  • Cost - What will this cost?
  • Obviousness - Is the process clear?
  • Negotiable - Do I have the options to negotiate what I want?
  • Time-bound - Are there strict deadlines?
  • Risk-assessed - Is the process risky?
  • Outcome-orientated - Is there a goal for every step?
  • Legal - Is the advice lawful?

The control© audit is simple.

It’s a matter of asking your lawyer some simple questions, which will be outlined in a minute. Their answers will determine whether you will be guaranteed:
  • Maximum compensation
  • Bulletproof certainty
  • A stress-free process

Step 7: Legal

The sixth step in the CONTROL© audit is to assess whether the process is legal.
  • Are we crossing legal boundaries to get what I need?
  • Are both my lawyer and I transparent and honest?
  • Is this specialist qualified to give me advice?
  • Is this advice compliant with the law?
Complying with the law prevents hold ups and unnecessary delays. Hold ups and unnecessary delays that could give the other side an advantage.
Most legal non-compliance comes from rushing things, cutting corners, and not paying enough attention.
It’s like driving 80km in a 50km zone in an attempt to get to your friends party. A police man will pull you over, give you a ticket and make you arrive an hour late.
So now you have a $609 fine, 6 demerit points and have missed the food. Something you could have avoided if you’d complied with the road rules and driven the speed limit. Avoiding a fine and avoiding an hour delay.

Sometimes illegal shortcuts can turn into expensive marathons

The same goes for insurance compensation matters. If you don’t follow the rules and aren’t compliant with the law, you will find yourself in a worse position.
You may be disadvantaged with penalties such as paying the other person’s legal costs, or even missing out on getting the compensation you deserve.
But there are ways in which you can ensure that you remain compliant with Australia’s insurance law.

COMPLIANCE checklist

  • 1
    Read, study, and understand:
  • 2
    Hire a qualified legal professional on a fixed-fee, fixed-task basis who has studied these materials for at least 6 years. These include:
  • Solicitors (also known as lawyers)
  • Barristers
  •  Judges
These professionals are the only people who are qualified to give you correct legal advice. You can check if the professional you are considering on hiring is qualified in Queensland by searching them on the Queensland Law Society website, or by getting in direct contact with the Queensland Law society directly (for Queensland only).
People you should NOT seek legal advice off are:
  • your hairdresser
  • your fishing mates
  • your walking group
  • your personal trainer
  • your financial planner
They won’t know the loopholes. The secrets of navigating their way through the legal minefield. It changes on a daily basis.

if anyone could give legal advice, we'd all be lawyers.

Advice from non-lawyers could be misleading, ill-informed, and out-of-date.
Even worse, it could leave you feeling embarrassed and humiliated. And without recourse.

The all-important difference in pronunciation

School up on the law or find a qualified professional. You’ll find yourself:
  • Happy you've done your research
  • Feeling educated
  • Responsible for doing the right thing
  • Relaxed with peace of mind
