Types of Compensation Claims We Can Help You
Public liability Claim
A public liability claim can cover a variety of events, including slipping and falling on a slick tile on a public sidewalk, falling off playground equipment, and even an accident in a friend’s backyard, such as a tree collapsing on you.
The most common forms of public liability claims include:
- personal injury claims (e.g., medical malpractice and accidents)
- product liability claims (e.g., defective products)
- construction site injuries caused by an accident during building work or construction
If you can prove that another person in charge of the area where the accident happened was negligent, your public liability claim will most likely be examined by an insurance company.
Remember that getting medical help as soon as possible following an accident is essential to your claim. To support your compensation claim, you’ll need documentation of your injuries, as well as any after-effects like whiplash or concussion.
Similarly, proof from the incident, such as images of the place and your injuries, as well as witness testimonies and venue accident reports, will need to be gathered to be included in your claim. Compensation Lawyers in Adelaide are experts in assisting you in gathering this information.
We will also ‘take on the insurance company if it disputes how your injury occurred or the extent of the harm. This might take a long time to establish an agreement that is acceptable to both sides.
If your claim is outright denied or rejected, we will best defend your interests in the dispute resolution process.
Finally, our Compensation Solicitor at your claim is filed on time, as deadlines are critical in compensation cases.
Motor vehicle accident claims
Although it is one of the most common compensation cases we handle, this does not mean that car accident are always simple.
Compensation Lawyers will walk you through the claims procedure, which can be at times confusing, to ensure you get everything you’re entitled to in an accident that wasn’t your fault.
A medical assessment of your injuries, as with most compensation claims, is necessary as soon as possible following the event. Medical documents from the time of the accident until your claim are filed will be critical to the success of your claim.
Many injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents take time to appear — whiplash, concussions, and spinal disorders can take months to manifest, therefore medical records must be correct and up to date.
Police records of the accident, as well as other detailed evidence such as pictures or videos of the area, information on the traffic and weather conditions at the time, and witness testimonies of the event, will be required to prove your claim.
A motor vehicle accident claim can seek compensation for lost wages since the accident and if you are unable to work in the future, as well as past and future superannuation costs.
The costs of your medical treatment, rehabilitation, and domestic care, as well as any other expenses incurred as a result of your accident, could be included in your compensation amount.
Finally, you may be awarded ‘general damages to compensate for your ‘pain and suffering,’ as well as any non-economic losses, as a result of the accident.
You can recover compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering if you are injured in a car crash. You may be able to sue the at-fault driver for negligence even if no one else is involved in the accident. If you are injured in an accident with multiple vehicles or people involved, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver for their role in causing your injuries.
Gajic Lawyers handles all types of motor vehicle accident claims from our offices across Australia. We offer free consultations so we can determine what type of claim best fits your needs and explain the process to you so that no questions remain unanswered.
Superannuation TPD Claim
Many superannuation plans have insurance policies that pay out a lump payment if you are injured and unable to work again. These payments are considered compensation, which is why having the help of Adelaide Compensation Lawyers can be extremely beneficial.
Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance, income protection, trauma insurance, terminal disease claims, and insurance litigation claims are all common insurance policies carried by super funds.
It might be difficult to file a claim under these policies. Detailed qualifying requirements and other conditions are buried in the small print, making them time-consuming and complicated to understand.
We can translate the legalese for you to help you understand if you fulfil the eligibility standards or need to wait a period of time before applying for TPD held in super.
Supporting evidence, such as medical evaluations and other proof, is a key component of these claims.
