This can be stressful, which is why we always strive to progress your claim in an efficient and timely manner and keep you updated with the most relevant information in clear and simple language.
If you have been injured and wish to discuss whether you have an entitlement to make a claim, then our friendly personal injury lawyers can talk you through your rights and options – either over the phone or in person – at no cost and no obligation for this initial consultation.
The Operation of the Law of Negligence
The law of negligence is something that is in place to protect us in the case of personal injury claims. If you have fallen in a public place, there are established relationships in place to protect you if you have suffered harm. Similarly, if you have been injured while driving as a result of someone else’s negligence, then there are established relationships in place to protect you here too.
When you are seeking compensation, the onus falls upon you as the injured party to prove the negligence of the other party. As your personal injury lawyers Brisbane wide, we can help you with what can generally be a time-consuming and lengthy process of gathering and compiling evidence to support your claim.
If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, it is important that you contact us as soon as possible – not only because there are strict time limits in place to restrict claims for personal injury (generally three years, although this can be extended in exceptional circumstances).
How Revolution Law Can Help
Putting forward a claim for personal injury can be a complicated matter. You must submit conclusive evidence to support your claim, including doctor’s reports, information about the incident, and ongoing care and expenses as a result of the injury.
When seeking compensation, the aim of the financial recompense is to place you in a position as if the accident had not taken place – at least financially – and we can help you to understand what kind of compensation you may be entitled to. As your personal injury lawyer, we are experienced in compensation claims and provide care and legal understanding.
Types of Personal Injury Claims
Our personal injury lawyers Brisbane wide have a thorough understanding of the types of claims that can be made. Take a look at some of the areas we can help you with.
Motor Vehicle Accident
If you have been injured because of a motor vehicle incident, you may have a Compulsory Third Insurance Party claim. We are experienced in managing and putting forward claims for motor vehicle accidents and can help you understand your rights and obligations, whether you were another driver, a pedestrian or a passenger in a vehicle.
Work Place Injuries
You may be entitled to a WorkCover lump sum offer or a Common Law Claim if you have been injured at work. This offer may be increased depending upon the date of your incident, therefore it is imperative that you seek legal advice. In many cases, understanding the nuance of a WorkCover claim can be difficult – which is why you need a legal representative to help you know what your rights are.
Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD)
If you suffer from an illness or injury that leaves you totally and permanently disabled, you may have a TPD claim. This can be a difficult and potentially traumatic time, and we can help you by making the process of your claim as smooth and simple as possible.
Your superannuation may have an insurance cover in the event of serious illness or injury which results in Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD). You may be eligible for a lump sum benefit in addition to your superannuation account balance and other benefits such as income protection for which you may be entitled.
If you have sustained an injury on public or private property, then you may have a public liability claim. As we mentioned above, there are established relationships which govern the rights and responsibilities of the occupier of a public place, and it’s important that you understand what you can seek compensation for.
When a close relative of whom you are financially dependent upon has been fatally injured, you may be compensated for that loss. Contact us to understand how you can seek compensation for a dependency claim.
Nervous Shock Claim
If the death of a person has resulted in you suffering from a ‘diagnosable psychiatric condition’, then you may have access to compensation. This can be a difficult time, and we are here to provide you with the support and care that you need.
