Personal Injury Lawyers in Queensland, NSW, Brisbane, Sydney

 

If you've been injured due to the negligence of another party then you may be entitled to a compensation claim. You may be familiar with the option of filing a worker's compensation claim if you are injured on the job, but compensation claims can be filed under a number of different contexts. Car accidents, medical negligence, and personal injuries are also instances in which filing a compensation claim is legal and sometimes necessary.

Knowing your rights concerning compensation law is the best way to guarantee that you receive the compensation you deserve, but unless you're a compensation expert this can be difficult.

Therefore, it's highly advisable that you contact a compensation lawyer if:

  • You sustain major injuries that will require intensive or on-going care
  • You will be forced to pay extensive bills (i.e. medical, insurance, or living expenses) due to the accident
  • You do not understand the information you've been provided by the insurance company

Car accidents

Drivers are involved in car accidents everyday throughout Australia. While many of these accidents are not preventable, many others are a direct result of the negligence of a driver that was distracted or outright careless. Common causes of car wrecks include:

  • Driving too fast for weather conditions
  • Talking on cell phones and attempting to adjust controls within the car
  • Faulty car maintenance by the owner

Regardless of the cause of the accident, if you've been injured in a car accident then you are entitled to file an accident compensation claim. Different laws apply in all States and Territories as to the compensation available; therefore it is important to obtain advice immediately as a time limit will apply. In certain circumstances and jurisdictions you can even be at fault for an accident and still receive compensation.

Medical negligence

OnWhen you go to hospitals and medical facilities, you are often literally placing your life in their hands; unfortunately there are times when accidents do happen in the process of receiving medical care. You should definitely seek compensation law advice if you or a loved one has suffered harm or injury due to:

  • improper diagnosis
  • failure to receive treatment
  • improper medications
  • improper surgical or medical procedures

When filing a compensation claim it's important to remember that you will need to show that medical negligence was the reason that the injury was caused.
