Personal Injury Claims

Have you suffered an injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault?

We help more people make no win no charge personal injury claims than any other helpline.

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is the process of an injured person (plaintiff) suing another person (defendant), business or a company responsible for the accident that caused your injuries.

You can generally make a claim if you have you suffered unnecessarily because of someone else’s actions.

To determine this we use the three following factors:

  • Your accident happened within the last three years
  • Caused you to suffer a loss financially, physically or mentally
  • The accident wasn’t your fault

Please note that not all claims have a three year limitation period.

Claims for industrial injuries such as asbestos-related diseases and workplace deafness don’t have a time limit.

There are also ways that lawyers can grant extensions for people who have missed the deadline so even if you think you have left it too late we might still be able to help.

The best way to find out is to contact us for a free no obligation consultation or try our online eligibility checker.

 

Common types of personal injury claims

Accidents come in all shapes and sizes and unless you are doing something extreme such as skydiving they are pretty much unpredictable.

No matter where, why or how people suffer their injuries, if someone else’s actions were to blame, we can usually help.

Some of the most common cases our lawyers deal with include:

  • Road related injury claims
  • Workers compensation
  • Clinical and medical negligence
  • Public liability

If you have suffered from any of the above, we can help you start your journey to compensation.

How much compensation can I get?

The amount of compensation or damages owed to you will depend on the severity of your injuries.

There are also some other components that can affect how much you might receive such as the state your accident took place and how the accident came about.

Although at this stage it’s too early to give you an accurate estimation regarding your final settlement you can try our online compensation calculator as a guide.

When processing your claim your lawyer will look at the following things when negotiating your settlement.

  • Lost earnings
  • Future lost earnings
  • Loss of social
  • Medical expenses
  • Future medical costs
  • Pain and suffering
  • Care costs

To get an accurate figure you can call our lawyers free to discuss your matter in a friendly and confidential environment.

How to find the best lawyer

Finding a lawyer to represent you is actually the easy bit as there are over 60,000 practising lawyers throughout Australia. Whats hard is deciding which lawyer is the right person to represent you.

Entering into a contract with a law firm is not something that should be entered into lightly.

Although solicitors must be fully qualified in order to practice law, the level of skill varies a lot from person to person.

Another thing you must consider is, whether any prospective candidates are experienced in cases like yours.

For example, If you were to have a wall built at home in your garden, you wouldn’t pay a boilermaker to come and make it for you.

The same goes for personal injury lawyers, if you have been involved in a car accident you wouldn’t want a lawyer who specialises in medical negligence to represent you
