    Workplace Injury

    Injured at work?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    Workers Compensation almost always applies to work-related injuries for full-time, part-time, casual or permanent employees. If you have suffered as the result of a workplace injury, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation. As Work Injury Lawyers, we are experts at advising you on your rights for your workers compensation claim and whether your injury at work is a claim we can help you with.

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Workers Compensation insurance exists to help injured workers cover costs associated with their injuries; compensate for pain and suffering; and make up for any associated financial hardship. Whether it be through a WorkCover claim; a workplace or superannuation insurance claim; or through other means; we can help you to access the appropriate compensation. Your payout amount depends on:

    Your injuries or impairments

    Your age & employment history
    Your lost wages – short & long term
    Your expenses associated
    with medical treatment
    Your need for ongoing
    care or rehabilitation

    Motor Vehicle Injury

    Injured in a vehicle accident?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    If the accident happened in Queensland, and you were not the driver at fault, we can help you with your claim – whether you were driving a car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle. We are car accident lawyers and have expertise in injury claims for Queenslanders.

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Compulsory Third Party Insurance exists to help victims of car crashes, automotive accidents and motor vehicle injuries cover costs associated with their injuries; compensate for pain and suffering; and make up for any associated financial hardship. Your payout amount for the car accident claim depends on:

    Your injuries or impairments

    Your age & employment history
    Your lost wages – short & long term
    Your expenses associated
    With medical treatment
    Your need for ongoing
    Care or rehabilitation

    Away From Home Injury

    Injured while away from your home?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    A ‘Public Liability’ injury is one that happens on property you don’t own, like a café or shopping centre – or in a public space like a park or on a footpath. If you’ve suffered a ‘slip and fall’ accident or other injury while out and about walking or on public transport, you may be entitled to make a claim.

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Public Liability insurance exists to help the injured person cover costs associated with their injuries; compensate for pain and suffering; and make up for any associated financial hardship. Your payout amount depends on:

    Your injuries or impairments
    Your age & employment history
    Your lost wages – short & long term
    Your expenses associated
    With medical treatment
    Your need for ongoing
    Care or rehabilitation

    TPD - Total & Permanent Disability

    Unable to work due to illness or injury?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    Superannuation and life insurance policies commonly include insurance for total and permanent disability (TPD).

    Show us your policy, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    The details of TPD policies vary from insurer to insurer, but generally they allow you to make a claim if you’re unable to function in your usual occupation due to illness, impairment or injury.

    The amount of the claim you can make will be determined by the content of your policy, and
    policies can be difficult to understand. What’s more, it’s not uncommon for people to have more that one super fund, and therefore multiple TPD insurance policies. So, why not take advantage of our free consultation and find out exactly what your entitlements are.

    Institutional Abuse

    Have you suffered institutional abuse?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    If you’ve been a victim of sexual, physical, emotional or psychological abuse, we’re here to help you receive justice and the compensation you deserve from the institution responsible.

    If you’re not certain an ‘institution’ was at fault for the abuse you’ve suffered, let us advise you. Institutions may include, but are not limited to:

    • Youth care facilities
    • Government detention facilities
    • Religious organisations
    • Public and private schools
    • Sports clubs and other associations

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Once we understand the details of your case, we’ll give you an evaluation of your prospects for a successful outcome, and an estimate of the compensation you may expect to receive.

    The amount will depend on a variety of factors, including:

    Pain and suffering you’ve experienced
    Your injuries or impairments

    Your need for ongoing care or rehabilitation

    Associated medical expenses

    Your employment history

    We can’t turn back time – but here’s how we make it better going forward.

    We can’t undo the suffering you’ve experienced, but financial compensation will ease some of the distress associated with your injury. We’ll be with you through the whole process, explaining, and guiding you at every step.

    WE CHAT

    It’s a free consultation.
    We chat to determine if you have a claim you should proceed with – at our place, your place or by phone. No cost, and no obligation.

    WE MEET

    A free detailed discussion.
    Once you know you are eligible for a claim worth pursuing, we’ll meet at our place or yours when possible, and go over the details with a specialist lawyer. Every claim is different, so we can’t tell you exactly how long your claim will take to process – but based on our experience and your details, we’ll give you an estimate. We also explain our fees and ‘No Win, No Fee’ payment method. Again, there is no obligation to proceed, and no cost for the meeting if you choose not to proceed.

    WE PLAN

    You say ‘go’ – we build your case.
    Once you decide to proceed, you formally appoint us to represent you. We then gather all the evidence needed to present the best possible claim – witness statements, medical records and documents to support your claim.

    WE LODGE

    We present your case.
    Armed with the evidence required, we lodge your claim. Then we guide you through each and every step of proceedings. Generally, the claim is against the insurer, not directly against the other driver.

    WE CONCLUDE

    We reach a settlement.

    We present the strongest possible case, so that a fair settlement can happen as quickly as possible.

    We do all we can to support survivors of abuse.

    As your claim proceeds, we’ll support you and keep you updated with frequent phone calls – you’ll hear from us regularly. We’re sensitive to the difficulties survivors of abuse may experience when seeking accountability from their abusers, and we’ll ensure you are treated with understanding and respect throughout the entire legal process.

    We can also refer you to selected specialist service providers that have experience in supporting survivors of abuse – people who can provide you with additional assistance and support, if and when it is required. Some of the people we recommend are, themselves, survivors of institutional abuse, and all support services offered are provided with confidentiality.

    Areas of specialist support may include:

    • Emotional support while providing details of the abuse suffered
    • Support and assistance during meetings with your lawyers
    • Medical support
    • Support from psychologists and psychiatrists
    • Drug and alcohol support services
    • Men’s and women’s shelters
    • Support in dealings with corrective services and other government departments

    In short, we’re here to do all we can to understand your specific circumstances, and to help you get through the legal process with a minimum of stress.

    It’s important to get it right!

    We’ll ensure everything that needs to be done is done correctly, and as quickly as possible, so you can receive the apology and compensation you deserve, and get on with rebuilding your life.

    Our people choose to be lawyers for the right reasons.

    We understand what you and your family are going through, and we’re here to ease your distress, ensure a fair outcome, and help restore ‘normality’ to your life.
