Motor Vehicle Accidents Claims
Have you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, truck accident, bus accident, motor cycle accident, boating accident, bicycle, train, or even as a pedestrian, you will be entitled if it was not your fault to a claim for compensation arising from your accident for your injuries under the Motor Accident Insurance Act 1994 (also known as the “MAIA”).

If you do have a motor accident claim as stated above, personal compensation damages may be awarded to you and they cover many heads of damages including:-

Compensation for pain and suffering and loss of your amenities of life.  This is known under the law as general damages and are to compensate you for matters involving pain and suffering generally;
Loss of wages or business profits (including loss of past and future income and loss of superannuation payments).  As regards loss of wages it is calculated based on your current or potential future earnings and a lump sum will be awarded as a general buffer for your future wage loss.  We are highly specialised at achieving the largest lump sum using expert forensic accountants to assist with these calculations which also include superannuation;
Medical and rehabilitation expenses that you have incurred and are likely to incur in the future;
Care costs (including past and future care);
Out of pocket expenses;
Payment of your rehabilitation and medical treatment such as physiotherapy treatment, medications expenses, ongoing treatment with specialists etc;
Often people are able to make what is known as journey claims where they are travelling too or from work or on behalf of work during the course of the day and are entitled to the dual benefits of the third party compensation as stated above plus also workers' compensation benefits.  We will advise you further on the options available.

Medical Negligence & Malpractice Claims Lawyers
Medical negligence covers injuries that occur as a direct result of a doctor, physiotherapist, nurse, hospital, medical specialist or health professional failing to provide reasonable care and utilising appropriate skill in the treatment of a patient where such injury could have or should have been foreseen.  We are able to assist you to make a claim for compensation under Queensland law for the following damages:-

Pain and suffering;
Past, present and future wage loss;
Past, present and future medical treatment expenses;
Homecare costs including past and future care;
Out of pocket expenses generally.
If you have a case that you believe may be medical negligence you also have a right to refer the complaint to the Queensland Health Care Complaints Commission who will independently investigate the claim but do remember they do not generally award any damages for the injury sustained by you.  They do investigate matters from a general negligence perspective but their role is much narrower than the role we as lawyers will investigate the matter.

Slip & Fall Public Liability Claims
Many people are unaware that they may be entitled to make a claim for public liability compensation known as a slip and fall claim and this covers a wide variety of circumstances.  Many people sustain injury arising from a fall in a supermarket or at someone’s residence and as a consequence are injured.  It is important to note that this type of accident can occur in a public place or when visiting private premises or possibly at a friends home when you sustained an injury due to the negligence of the owner of this property.  The claim is not brought personally against a person at fault but falls against the public liability insurer for the property.  Accordingly, if the owner of the building has adequate insurance for public liability they are not personally held responsible but their insurer will be required to make payments for compensation.  These actions can occur in supermarkets, shopping centres, retail centres, footpaths, private residences, schools or in parks or playgrounds and could arise due to wet floor, an unsafe slippery floor or as a result of poor building technique causing an injury to you.

If a claim for compensation is successful you may be entitled to the following:-

Lump sum compensation for pain and suffering known as general damages;
Loss of earnings including loss of past and future wage loss and superannuation payments;
Medical expenses are likely to be incurred for both the past and future;
Home care costs including any requirements for someone to undertake gardening, domestic cleaning and provide personal care to you if you are incapacitated in any way.  The approximate commercial rate would be in the vicinity of $30.00 per hour.

Work Related Accident Claims
If you have been injured in a work related accident or in an accident travelling to and from work you may be entitled to common law damages or workers compensation benefits or in fact both.  The injury sustained may cover physical problems or possibly a psychological reaction including stress, anxiety and depression.

Workers Compensation Statutory Benefits known as WorkCover Benefits

These benefits include all medical and rehabilitation expenses arising from your injury and your wages according to the statutory scale for which you are entitled.  In Queensland the appropriate act governing this payment is the Workers Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 and is a no fault scheme in that the worker has the right to claim whether the injury was caused by the employers negligence or not.

Common Law Damages:-

It is important that workers under Queensland law also have rights to bring an action if the employer was at fault causing the accident and can be classified as negligent.  The employer’s negligence relates to wrongful act or omission on the employers part for failing to provide a safe workplace.  If there is fault on the part of the employer not only would you be entitled to the statutory benefits applicable but also to common law benefits.

Damages based on the common law arise where the employer was negligent, failing to provide a safe workplace.  To have a common law claim there must be some fault and also you need to be very careful accepting any lump sum payment for impairment under the Workers Compensation and Rehabilitation Act 2003 as this acceptance may cause you to forfeit your rights under a claim for common law damages.  Please speak to an experience expert lawyer to assist you with making this decision.
