Why bring about an injury compensation claim now?
When it comes to making an accident or injury compensation claim, it’s best to act quickly to allow your legal team time to fully investigate your situation and build a comprehensive picture of how your life has been affected, so they can then build the strongest possible case. If you leave it too long, you may even forgo your right to make a claim forever. The law sets strict time limits for many types of injury compensation claims and these are different for each state and territory in Australia. It’s important you act quickly so the opportunity to claim is not lost.
It could result in more compensation to you
Bringing a claim forward with us quickly may make a big difference when it comes to maximising your entitlements. Acting early allows us time to build a strong case that takes into account the full scope of your injuries and the effects they are having on your life. It may mean you get more compensation at the end of the process.
Why bring about an injury compensation claim at all?
Safeguard your future
Bringing about a compensation claim for injuries you have sustained is an important decision for you and your family. The compensation you receive could have a huge impact on your life and the welfare of you and your family. If you don’t bring a claim forward it may have serious consequences later on in life. It’s important you are armed with all the facts so you can make an educated decision on whether or not to make a claim, which is why we recommend speaking to one of our lawyers. You’ll receive a good understanding of your rights and options moving forward in an obligation-free environment.
Insurer responsible for paying you compensation, not the individual at fault
When you bring about an injury claim, in most cases, it's the insurance company of the person or business at fault that will pay you the compensation rather than the individual themselves. It’s a common misunderstanding that those at fault will be the ones that have to pay you the compensation for what’s happened, but this is very rare.
Less stress for you and your family
Bringing about a claim for compensation following your injury isn’t as stressful as it may seem. Knowing that legal experts are handling your claim can provide peace of mind and may also provide clarity on what to expect for the future.
As experienced lawyers, you can feel comfortable knowing that we will do all we can to make the entire process as stress-free as possible. This allows you to focus on you and your family.
