Personal Injury Law & lawyers

Personal injury law concerns compensation for physical, mental and emotional injuries suffered by a person as a result of the conduct of another. The main issues in a personal injury case revolve around proving liability, causation, and damages.

You may also be able to claim for your loss of earnings, medical treatment, care and services, post traumatic stress and any other disorders that are as a result of your accident.

Broadly speaking, there are four main types of personal injury claims:

  1. Motor Accident Compensation - road related personal injuries
  2. Workers Compensation Claims - work related personal injuries
  3. Public Liability Claims - injuries arising out in public (e.g. shopping centres)
  4. Negligence Claims - injuries arising from the negligence of another

Personal injury is described as bodily injuries, such as a broken bone, a cut, or bruises, any physical or mental injury in any other disorders that are as a result of your incident.

If you have suffered a personal injury and as a result are experiencing short-term or permanent life long injuries, you are entitled to make a claim for compensation. The purpose of compensation is to compensate you for the following possibilities:

  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Physical disabilities
  • Medical and hospital costs
  • Medical Treatment and Medication
  • Attendant care and rehabilitation costs
  • House and motor modifications to accommodate your injuries
  • Dependant spouse and / or dependant children
  • Other damages, losses and compensation entitlements

Accidents in a public place claims

This refers to injuries caused by slipping or tripping over an object in a public space or being struck by an object. An example of this is falling over a broken step or paving stone which then causes an injury.

Many people recover from their injury but there are others who find that they have developed a long term disability which then impacts upon many areas of their life.

The physical aspect of the injury is pain, discomfort plus psychological distress. But it has other consequences as well such as financial stress caused by having to take time off work which results in a loss of earnings.

If you sustain an injury in a public property such as a restaurant or pub then the responsibility for your accident will rest with the owner or local authority. They have a duty of care to ensure that the general public are protected against accidents and that steps have been taken to minimise this risk.

But if that duty has failed or was substandard in any shape or form then there may be grounds for a compensation claim.

The onus is on you to prove that your injury was not your fault and has been caused by someone else’s negligence.

Most common types of accidents in public places

These include slips, trips and falls in the following public places:

  • Supermarkets
  • Pubs
  • Nightclubs
  • Shops
  • Cafes
  • Restaurants

These are some of the most common places for accidents.

It is easy to assume that a slip, trip or fall is due to simple carelessness or if it occurs outside a pub, as a result of excess alcohol. But this is not always the case.

Accidents do happen but there are many situations in which someone has a fall due to a lack of care and attention by someone else.

An example of this is someone tripping on a broken step outside a pub or restaurant. Whilst it is tempting to think that this is caused by too much alcohol in many cases this is simply not true. These accidents have occurred when the person is sober and due to another persons’ negligence.

There are occasions when any of us slips or trips over something which is our fault and something that we recover from very quickly. But the fact remains that there are situations where people sustain an injury which is not their fault due to a lack of awareness by other people.

If you do have the misfortune to become injured from a slip, trip or fall in a public space then make a note of your accident; take a photograph of the place where it happened and obtain names and addresses of any witnesses.

These will all help when making a claim for compensation.

Total and Permanent Disability Compensation Claims

If you become Totally and Permanently Disabled, you can claim your superannuation early. Most superannuation funds also have a TPD insurance component. Therefore in addition to receiving your super early, you may be entitled to a lump sum payout through the TPD insurance component.

For more information click here: Total and Permanent Disability Compensation Claims

Making a claim for compensation for an injury in a public place

A personal injury lawyer will be able to tell if you have a strong case for compensation –if negligence can be proved, and what the possible outcome will be.

A personal injury can have a devastating impact upon you and your family. Your injury may be serious enough to prevent you from working which then affects your income level. A loss of earnings and pension rights causes stress for not only you but your family as well and may result in financial hardship.

If your claim is successful then the payout will help to ease any financial difficulties. It can pay for any rehabilitation you may need, medication, specialist aids plus any additional expenses, e.g. taxi fares to hospital.

Time limit for claiming compensation for an injury in a public place

There are strict time limits in regard to personal injury claims.

Slip and Fall Accidents: An Issue of Premises Liability, Not Clumsiness

Wed, 10 Aug 2016 14:56:14 -0500

Did you suffer an injury after a slip and fall or trip and fall accident? It may not be a simple issue of clumsiness. When we were kids, we would fall and scrape our knees and wake up with bruises we couldn't remember getting. But not every falling accident is actually an "accident." Property owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe space for visitors. If they are negligent in this, and that negligence created an unsafe condition that then causes a slip and fall accident, then that property owner may be held liable for the injuries that result.
