Motor Accident Claims

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in New South Wales where another driver is totally or partially at fault, or even if there is no one at fault in the accident, you may be eligible to claim for compensatory damages. The amount of compensation you can claim will depend on the nature and extent of your injuries, which is why it is vital to speak to a legal professional before taking any action to ensure the best possible result.

You can claim compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering (subject to a threshold)
  • Past and future out of pocket expenses
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Past and future Loss of superannuation
  • Domestic or commercial care provided as a result of the accident (subject to a threshold)

You are required to file for court proceedings to claim compensation for your injuries within 3 years from the date of the motor vehicle accident. If they are not filed within that time, you will lose all your rights to recover compensation for your injuries.

Most cases are referred to CARS which is an administrative system designed to keep most cases out of the court system to adjudicate as to the amount of damages. Whilst there is no time limit for referring the matter to CARS it is prudent to do so within 3 years, because obtaining a grant of leave to proceed through the court after a CARS assessment is often difficult.

It’s very important that you seek professional legal advice from our personal injury law specialists as soon as possible after the accident occurs, to ensure all the correct claims procedures are followed, applications are completed, and particulars are supplied and offers of settlement are made.

Most Motor Accident Claims are successfully settled by informal negotiation or at a settlement conference, or through a CARS assessment hearing. If a settlement or a favourable outcome can’t be reached then we will proceed to court to achieve the best outcome for you.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you are injured at work or while performing an activity in connection with your work, you can claim compensation for the injury sustained. The avenues for compensation and the processes to make a claim differ in New South Wales, so please contact the Personal Injuries Department Manager in your state for further details, and to find out how to move forward with your claim.

The four sets of benefits payable are:

  • Weekly payments of workers’ compensation, if you are unable to work or are unable to earn the same amount of money
  • Medical expenses including all medical charges and private hospital fees, as covered by legislation
  • Permanent impairment benefits, based on how much damage you have suffered to result in a permanent loss of function of a particular body part
  • Death benefits for surviving family members and dependents in the event of a work related death
More generous benefits are available to Police, Fire and Ambulance personnel.

A claim for workers’ compensation must be lodged within 6 months from the date of the injury, although this time limit can be extended in certain specific circumstances. If you suffer an injury at work because of the negligence of your employer, you may also be entitled to lodge a common law claim against them. This must be lodged within 3 years from the date of the injury.

The legislation relating to these sorts of claims are highly complex, and it is strongly recommended that you seek legal assistance from our experienced team. Our personal injury lawyers in New South Wales are available to guide you through the necessary procedures and ensure that your claim is submitted correctly.

In New South Wales, you can find more information by visiting the NSW Workers’ Compensation Commission, ICARE and Workcover Independent Review Office (WIRO) websites.

Occupiers Liability/Public Liability Claims

If you have been injured due to the negligence of another person in either a public or private place, you may have a claim for compensation. As with all personal injury claims, the legislation and necessary legal procedures vary slightly between states, so please get in touch with the relevant Personal Injuries Department Manager in New South Wales before you take any action.

The amount of compensation that can be claimed depends on the nature and extent of your injuries. You can claim compensation for:

  • Past and future out of pocket expenses
  • Past and future loss of income
  • Loss of superannuation

And subject to exceeding thresholds contained in the legislation, you can also make a claim for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future domestic assistance
Court proceedings to claim compensation for your injuries need to be filed within 3 years from the date of the injury, or you will lose all rights to receive compensation. There are a number of important procedural steps that must be taken before you can file for court proceedings, and our leading personal injury lawyers in New South Wales can guide you through the whole process.
