Injury Compensation Lawyers

Lawyers practising exclusively in their Field of Expertise achieve the best results.

Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury Law is a specialist field that includes the following areas:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Workplace Accidents
  • Slip & Fall Injuries
  • Superannuation – Total/Partial and Permanent Disability Insurance
  • Victim of Crime Claims

Motor Vehicle Accidents

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, which was not your fault, then you may be able to claim compensation. This includes accidents in which you were the driver, passenger, cyclist or a pedestrian. It also includes instances where the vehicle at fault is uninsured or unregistered. Even non-citizens or residents are entitled to claim injury compensation in Australia.

Workplace Accidents

Workplace Accidents

If you have been injured at work or during the course of your workplace duties, then you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. In Queensland the Workers' Compensation scheme is comprised of two parts:

a Statutory phase; and

b Common Law phase.

Slip & Fall Injuries

Public liability and/or slip and fall accidents include accidents that happen in a public place or on someone else's property. Common injuries include back, leg and arm injuries from trips, falls and other types of accidents. In order to have a worthwhile claim, you need to be able to show that someone else contributed to or caused your injury (i.e. you need to be able to prove negligence).

Superannuation -TDP Insurance

If you are unable to return to work or if your employment has been significantly affected due to an injury, illness or medical condition, then you may be entitled to compensation under your Insurance or Super Fund.

Victim of Crime

Victim of Crime

If you have been the victim of a violent crime, then you may be entitled to claim compensation under the Victims Assist Scheme in Queensland. This scheme also provides access to compensation for victims of personal and domestic violence.

Ethical Principles in Personal Injury Law

  • If a law firm agrees to take on your claim on a "No Win, No Fee" basis, then that is exactly what should happen. You should not be charged unless a settlement is achieved.
  • You should not be pressured into signing a Client Agreement until you ask as many questions as you need to ask and fully understand the terms of the agreement.
  • It is quite common for some personal injury law firms to charge an 'uplift' fee on top of their usual professional fees. Some law firms charge uplift fees up to 25% as 'compensation for having to wait for payment.' However, ordinary professional fees are sufficient and uplift fees are unnecessary and should not be charged to clients.
  • Charging legal fees on a percentage basis of the settlement is illegal in Queensland for personal injury lawyers. There is also a 50/50 rule that ensures even in small settlements lawyers cannot charge more in fees than what the client ends up with in their hand.
  • Lawyers with integrity will offer you free case assessment and initial advice on your prospects of running a successful personal injury claim.
  • Experienced personal injury lawyers should be honest and only take you on as a client after their expert assessment reveals they are confident that your claim can be won.
