Compensation Lawyers Perth
Perth Compensation Lawyers draw on 30 years of experience to achieve the best compensation settlement possible for people who’ve been injured at work or in a car accident, or slipped and fell in a shopping centre, or need to access total and permanent disability (TPD) insurance cover through their superannuation fund. We also deal with cases of medical negligence.
Our work for you begins with an obligation-free consultation to assess the extent of your injury, the circumstances around how it happened, and the best-case scenario regarding a compensation amount.
We’ll also provide guidance on our No Win, No Fee policy, which means you will only pay our legal fees if your claim is successfully resolved to your satisfaction. We assume the legal risk of pursuing the claim, allowing you to concentrate on the other things required for a successful result, such as attending medical appointments.
Perth Compensation Lawyers will always try to achieve the greatest compensation amount possible but because each case is unique, it’s difficult to be precise about how much you might be entitled to.
All of these matters will be deal with in our Cost Agreement, which covers the possible outcomes in your case.
If you slip and trip in a place such as a shopping mall, supermarket, a park or a train station, and can show the incident was caused by the negligence of the person or persons who are responsible for the location, you may be able to make a public liability claim. This claim can even cover the circumstances where you are injured at a friend’s barbecue, or where a tree in someone’s backyard falls on you.
The success of this claim depends significantly on the quality of the evidence collected to establish how the injury occurred – eyewitness statements, photographs of the scene and accident reports are all vital.
The accuracy of records relating to your medical treatment is also important because insurance companies will often push back hard questioning the circumstances of the incident and the severity of your injury.
Perth Compensation Lawyers will ensure the claim is filed in the time the law allows and undertake the sometimes drawn-out negotiations with the insurer to try and move the claim towards a satisfactory settlement. We can also see you through the dispute resolution process in the event an insurer rejects your claim.
Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
Some compensation claims arising from motor vehicle accidents are straightforward but others can be complex. Perth Compensation Lawyers can make sure each step is methodically followed so that your claim has the best chance of success.
As with other compensation claims, medical assessment of your injury combined with evidence about the accident that happened will be crucial to your claim is proved.
It’s important to seek medical assistance as soon as possible after the accident and to have everything accurately recorded – injuries from car accidents, in particular, can emerge sometime after the initial incident.
A motor vehicle accident claim can encompass past and future lost earnings, which includes past and future superannuation contributions. The costs of medical treatment, rehabilitation and domestic care resulting from the accident are also claimable.
Damages to compensate for ‘pain and suffering’, whether physical and psychological, as well as other non-economic losses can also be claimed.
Many superannuation funds include a number of insurance policies within the fund, including Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance, income protection, trauma insurance, terminal illness claims and insurance litigation claims.
Check with your super fund if you’re unsure as to whether you are covered by any of these policies. Claims under these policies may provide compensation if waiting periods and eligibility requirements are met.
Making a TPD claim, for instance, can be complex and require a lot of supporting information from the person claiming to access this form of compensation.
Perth Compensation Lawyers can help make the complex look simpler by interpreting the terms of the policy in clearer language and advising on the steps you’d need to take to claim on the policy.
