Compensation Lawyers Adelaide, NSW
Being hurt in an accident, whether at work, while driving, or in a public area, can be a stressful experience. Not only do you have to cope with the injury, but you also have to deal with the long-term ramifications and the potential loss of income due to forced time off work.
When an injury is caused by another party’s negligence, you may be able to file a claim for compensation to offset lost income, medical bills, and pain and suffering as a result of the harm.
Many people are put off by the prospect of filing a compensation claim because it is time-consuming and difficult, but our Adelaide Compensation Lawyers have over 30 years of expertise in filing compensation claims for our clients and making the process as seamless as possible.
We provide each client who comes to us a swift and realistic evaluation of how much compensation they can anticipate and how long it will take to settle by working directly with them.
Our process begins with a free initial consultation so that we can learn more about how you were injured, what treatment you’ve received, and what proof of the event exists.
We also have a No Win, No Fee policy. Adelaide Compensation Lawyers will not charge you legal costs until your claim is resolved successfully. This helps you focus on your rehabilitation and recovery as well as your legal action for compensation.
Our objective is to always obtain the greatest possible compensation settlement, but it’s important to note that because each case is unique, it can be difficult to be accurate during the initial consultation.
How our Adelaide Compensation Lawyers Can Help You
Because injuries can drastically alter one’s life, receiving compensation is crucial. Navigating the legal system to get compensation, on the other hand, can be complicated. That is why having a personal injury lawyer advise and support you throughout the accident claims procedure is critical. Our skilled Adelaide compensation lawyers practise on a no-win, no-fee basis, so you have nothing to lose by seeking expert assistance with your compensation claim.
Gajic Lawyers in Adelaide specialises in supporting injured people like you. We guarantee that you will receive your compensation when it is due and in a stress-free manner.
What kind of claims do our Adelaide Compensation Lawyers handle?
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.
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. Adelaide Compensation Lawyers 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 Adelaide Compensation Lawyers will make certain that 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 accidents are always simple.
Compensation Lawyers Adelaide 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 is filed will be critical to the success of your claim.
Many injuries resulting from 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.
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.
