Personal Injury Lawyers Adelaide
Sustaining an injury in an accident can be a stressful experience, regardless of where the accident took place. Aside from dealing with immediate injuries, there is also possible loss of income and other after-effects of getting involved in an accident.
If the injury happened due to the negligence of another person or entity, you might be entitled to compensation. Accident compensation covers medical costs, income loss and pain and suffering from harm.
Filing a compensation claim can be a lengthy and complex process that deters people from making a claim. But our Adelaide Injury Lawyers have been handling compensation claims for 30 years and have made the process as worry-free as possible for our clients.
With Gajic Lawyers, we work closely with each client, providing them with a prompt and realistic estimate of how much compensation to expect and the length it will take to settle.
Our process starts with a no-obligation consultation so that we can learn more about how you were injured, what treatment you’ve received, and what evidence of the event exists.

Types of Injury Claims Handle by Adelaide Personal Injury Lawyers
Public Liability Claim
A public liability claim can cover a variety of accidents, including slipping and falling on a slick tile on a public sidewalk, falling off playground equipment. Even an accident in a shopping centre, like slipping on liquid.
Remember that getting medical help as soon as possible following an accident is critical to your claim. To support your compensation claim, you’ll need a record 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 statements and accident reports, will need to be collected to be included in your claim. Injury Lawyers Adelaide are experts in assisting you in collecting this information.
If the insurance company disputes how your injury happened or the magnitude of the harm, leave the worry to our injury lawyers. We will ‘take on’ the insurance company, albeit it might take a long time to establish an acceptable agreement.
If your claim is outright rejected, we will best defend your interests in the dispute resolution process.
Finally, our Injury Lawyers Adelaide will ensure 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 regularly handle, this does not mean motor vehicle accidents are always simple.
Injury Lawyers Adelaide will walk you through the claims process, which may be complicated at first, to ensure you get everything you’re entitled to after an accident that was not your fault.
Many injuries resulting from vehicle accidents take time to appear — the impact of whiplash, concussions, and spinal disorders can take months to show; therefore seeking legal advice is imperative.
Police records of the accident, as well as other detailed evidence such as pictures or footage of the scene, information on the traffic and weather conditions at the time, and witness statements of the event, will be required to prove your claim.
A motor vehicle accident claim might seek compensation for lost wages both since the accident and if you are unable to work in the future, as well as past and future superannuation contributions.
The costs of your medical treatment, rehabilitation, and domestic care, as well as any other expenses incurred as a result of your accident, may be included in your compensation.
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.
Superannuation TPD Claim
Many superannuation funds have insurance policies that pay out a lump-sum payment if you are injured and unable to work again. These payments are considered compensation, which is why having the help of Injury Lawyers Adelaide can be quite beneficial.
Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance, trauma insurance, income protection, terminal illness claims, and insurance litigation claims are all common insurance policies carried by super funds.
It can be challenging to file a claim under these policies. Detailed eligibility criteria 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 know whether you meet the eligibility requirements or need to wait a period of time before applying for TPD held in super.
Supporting evidence, such as medical records and other proof, is a crucial part of these claims.
Supporting information including medical assessments and other evidence is an important component of these claims.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Personal Injury?
If you are harmed in a public or private area as a result of another person or entity’s actions, you may be entitled to compensation.
You can file a claim for a variety of personal injuries. Slips and falls, medical negligence and motor vehicle accidents are all examples of these types of injuries.
The first step is to establish that a duty of care exists. In many cases, the law states that the duty exists because of the nature of the relationship, such as between a landlord and a tenant, a doctor and a patient, or a shopping centre owner and a shopper. You can nonetheless establish a responsibility exists based on the precise facts of the injury in other, less well-known scenarios.
