If you are injured at work, on the road or in a public place you may be entitled to receive compensation. The extent of the injury will have a great bearing on the amount of compensation you will receive.
 
Compensation may include: reasonable medical and hospital expenses, loss of earnings, travel expenses, rehabilitation expenses, and a lump sum payment for permanent impairment. If there was any negligence involved you may also be entitled to pursue a common law claim (or negligence claim). This type of claim takes into account your future losses and expenses that will compensate you for the rest of your working life and is generally worth tens of thousands of dollars more to you in compensation.
 
To establish all your rights and entitlements, the best thing to do to is to seek the advice of an injury lawyer (or personal injury lawyer or solicitor). It’s best to speak to a lawyer or a law firm who specializes in this practice area as they are trained experts in personal injury law. It doesn’t have to cost anything for a consultation. Many law firms offer free legal advice or a free consultation and if you have a good claim for compensation they may take your case on a ‘no win no fee’ basis.
 
If you have a right to a common law claim you will need a personal injury lawyer to represent you. At Aussie Law consultants we can assist you with every aspect of your claim. A good injury lawyer is an excellent negotiator who communicates well with the insurance company involved to ensure you get everything which you are legally entitled to and the best possible payout for you. This takes expertise and experience and when choosing a lawyer to represent it’s best to choose one who specializes in the area of personal injury law.  If you are ever offered compensation by an insurer it is very important to seek free legal advice from a personal injury lawyer. You need to make sure that the offer is sufficient and the only way to do this is to get a second opinion from the right attorney.
 
If other entitlements do exist you need to find out before you sign or accept anything. By accepting an offer, without seeking advice you may be left short changed and miss out on compensation that will need. Laws in relation to personal injury vary considerably between each State and Territory of Australia and your entitlements in relation to your circumstances will depend on the laws that relate to the place your accident or injury occurred. You will need to seek the advice of an injury lawyer who practices in your area and has a full understating of the relevant personal injury laws.
