As one of Perth’s largest and most trusted compensation companies, we’ve helped countless West Australians who have been injured in no-fault accidents get the compensation they deserve.

In general, claims for financial recompense in WA should be made as soon as practically possible as there is a three-year limitation period associated with claiming.

If you’ve been injured and think you might have left it too late, please don’t worry as we might still be able to help.

In many cases, our lawyers have been successful in applying for an extension to the personal injury time limit by the courts.

The best way to find out for certain whether you’re eligible to claim compensation or not is to speak with one of our client service consultants.

They can quickly guide you through the claims process and provide you with tailored advice.

If you have a valid case they will also let you know whether you qualify for our No Win, No Fee guarantee.

We never ask or pressure anyone into making a claim but if you qualify and wish to go ahead we can provide you with immediate legal representation anywhere in Perth

In order for your case to be a successful one, our personal injury lawyers will need to prove that another party were the one responsible for your injuries.

Once we have determined liability, accident compensation claims in Perth can take anywhere from 1-4 years to completely settle.

As an example, simple claims such as those for whiplash injuries can be executed by our car accident lawyers in around 12 months.

For complex litigation involving a seriously injured employee can take our workers compensation lawyers over 3 years to settle.

As a rule of thumb, the more serious your injuries are considered the longer proceedings will take.

Work injury compensation

Work injury compensation is one of the biggest segments of compensation law.

last year alone, over 104,000 serious work injury claims had been lodged throughout the country.

Employers have a legal obligation to their employees to provide them with a working environment that is safe and free from hazards.

Many of the injured employees we speak to believe workplace accidents happen only on heavy civil and industrial work sites.

However, this is incorrect,  employees can injure themselves in any line of work.

Our workers compensation lawyers can even help you make a successful claim workers compensation if you were self-employed or even visiting the site as a guest.

Serious injury and TPD claims

Serious injuries come in all shapes and sizes and impact not just the victim, but those that are close to them as well.

Many of the victims or their family members that we speak to are unsure as to whether we would consider their injuries as serious or not.

In general, we would consider an injury serious if you have experienced:

  • Permanent or serious impairment of a body function
  • Loss of a body function
  • Permanent or serious disfigurement
  • Permanent severe/mental impermanent
  • loss of a foetus

We understand how much of an impact a serious injury can have of plaintiffs and their loved ones, and his reason, when you speak to someone at our personal injury lawyers Perth branch about your situation, they will be able to let you know where you stand in minutes.

Some of the most common examples of serious injury and TPD claims we can assist you with are:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Loss of sight, either permanently, temporarily, or partially
  • Back and spine injuries
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Paralysis, either permanently, temporarily or partially
  • Amputations of loss of limbs
  • Life-changing burns
  • Multiple or compound injuries

If you are unsure as to whether we would consider your injury a serious one, you can call us to get this confirmed.

It’s free to call us and you won’t be under any obligation when you do.


Whiplash is probably the most common injury suffered by victims of car accidents in Perth.

Even at very slow speeds as little as ten kilometres an hour, crashes can cause the driver and passengers of a vehicle to suffer serious and sometimes life-changing injuries.

While seatbelts are an effective way to restrain your body and torso, the only thing supporting your head is your neck.

After a car crash or any other type of accident which can cause whiplash, you might not feel any symptoms for days and sometimes weeks later.

If you’ve been in a crash and suspect you have suffered from whiplash, or feel doubtful about the circumstances of your accident, we can help.

Call us now on 08 6336 8242 to speak with a car accident lawyer for free advice, tailored to your circumstances.

Medical negligence

Clinical negligence is considered by many legal professionals to be the most challenging and complex areas of compensation law.

In some sad cases, medical procedures can sometimes come with a consequence that was not expected.

If you have been wrongfully hurt by a medical professional, you could be eligible to make a claim for an injury suffered during a medical procedure.

However, if a reasonable mistake was made by a medical professional during a procedure you might not be able to sue.

If you feel you have been unnecessarily harmed you during an operation, the easiest way to find out if you have grounds for a claim is to speak with an experienced medical negligence solicitor.

Some of the most common types of clinical and medical negligence we help people claim for are:

  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Infections
  • Wrongful amputations
  • Mistreatment
  • Birth negligence
  • Delayed treatment
  • GP negligence
  • Incorrect reporting of test results
  • Care home negligence
  • Worsening existing conditions
  • Hospital negligence

Please don’t stress if we haven’t mentioned the negligence you have suffered in the list above as we might still be able to help.

Public liability

The owner of any public space such as a high street, shop or restaurant has a legal duty of care towards anyone that frequents the area and is responsible for their safety while on their premises.

If you’ve been involved in a public place accident we understand how upsetting and painful this can be. It can feel even more upsetting if the accident happened at no fault of your own.

Many of the victims of public liability we talk to said that they were so embarrassed at the time of the accident that it deterred them from claiming public liability compensation for their injuries.

Please rest assured that our experts acknowledge how both physically and mentally painful a public injury can be.

Our public liability lawyers specialise in making things right for people who have suffered an unwanted injury in a public place.

If and when you feel ready to speak to a public liability lawyer about your situation, you can do so in a confidential environment.

This way there are no hidden surprises.

If and only when your case is a success, is when the legal fees that you agreed upon are deducted from your compensation.

Its worth noting that the losing side, which is normally an insurance company will pay a large part of your legal costs.

How much compensation can I get?

There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your compensation.

The amount of compensation owed to plaintiffs depends on the severity of their injuries and the State in which they suffered them.

Some of the main things a solicitor will consider when negotiating your compensation will include.

  • Any time off work and lost earnings
  • Any future lost earnings
  • Any changes in your ability to work
  • Care or support, even if given to you for free by family or friends
  • Any adaptations you might need to your home or motor vehicle
  • Travel and accommodation expenses

At this stage it is impossible to give you an accurate estimation of what you could receive however, you can make your own assessment online using our compensation calculator.
