What is personal injury compensation?

Personal injury compensation covers financial losses suffered as a result of a personal injury caused by another person’s negligence and paid out by their insurer. Personal injury can be physical or psychological injuries that cause financial and life hardship due to loss of income or the cost of treatment.  Lawyers for personal injury can help you understand your rights and entitlements and help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Different Personal Injury Claims:

Workers’ Compensation Claims

If you’ve been injured or become ill as part of your work, you may be eligible to make a workers’ compensation claim. Injuries can include physical or psychological and can also be claimed for pre-existing injuries or conditions made worse by work.

My last stage of Workers compensation claim was managed by Emma Perkins, Natasha Stojanovic, Rebecca Dunshea and Kelli Robinson at Garling and Co. Lawyers who went the extra mile with their service... from the beginning to the end of 3 years of my case. I have become very anxious with almost everything after a workplace injury and a lot of times I probably ask more questions than I need to, but Emma Perkins always finds clear answers to my questions in a short time and explains to me patiently even using her mealtime or between her meeting and make me feel that I have been very well take care and supported. I am so grateful and extremely satisfied. The excellent service, attitude, and culture of Metthew Garling and his team are second to none with a very high success rate. If you going to battle with your workplace injury for a short or long period, you are better off with Garling and Co. lawyers who are able back you up every step of the way. I strongly recommend it to anybody who needs their service like me. Julieread more

Work cover fund is GOVT’S money but insurer think that it is from their 14th generation. So only they can have it. Not only that, people from the work, IME doctor from insurer, back to work... coordinator from work, Rehab provider from any side push the worker as hard as possible that the worker (doesn’t matter how the workers mental or psychical condition) either go back to his pre injury duty or leave the job.More over on that very bumpy any difficult journey some of them only treat the worker as a MONEY MAKING MECHINE .in some point worker feels like, no rooms to breath. On that moment need someone to support legally, someone to care, someone to relive.On my case I believe that, somehow, I manage to make my God happy. That’s why God sends me to Matthew Gerling and his team Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, and all of GARLING & co Lawyers.I am not good enough in English, can’t express my gratitude.Matthew, Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, please accept my appreciation and pass it to others.read more

Frequently Asked Questions

1/ What can I claim for personal injury?

Personal injury settlements often include compensation for:

  • Medical and care expenses incurred as a result of your injury or illness
  • Income lost through time off work
  • Future lost wages
  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • Home care expenses
  • An amount to cover the pain and suffering you’ve endured

What you can claim and the amount of personal injury compensation you may be eligible for depends on the extent of your injuries. As a general guide, you can claim for any losses you’ve experienced. For serious injuries, you may also be eligible to claim for future losses and your overall pain and suffering.

2/ How does a personal injury claim work?

Personal injury compensation claims are typically paid by an insurer working to reduce your compensation and minimise your claim. Because of this, most people use Accredited Specialists in personal injury law to properly prepare their claim and give themselves the best chance of receiving the compensation they deserve. When you use a personal injury attorney, your personal injury claim will undergo these steps with an insurer:

  • Your personal injury lawyer will assess your claim, identify the insurer, and provide advice on how to proceed.
  • Your claim will be submitted to the insurer; evidence and medical reports will also be collected and presented to prove your claim.
  • If the insurer accepts your claim, they will offer to settle your claim and compensate you. Your personal injury lawyer can tell you if the offer is reasonable or if you’re being unfairly compensated.
  • If the insurer denies your claim or an agreement can’t be reached, you’ll have the option to take the matter to court.

At Garling & Co, our specialist team of personal injury lawyers help you maximise your compensation on a No Win No Fee policy.

3/ How long does a personal injury claim take to settle?

Most personal injury compensation claims in NSW take between 9-18 months to settle; however, it can take longer, depending on your claim.

The amount of time it takes to settle depends on:

  • The amount of time needed for necessary medical assessments
  • Whether the insurer accepts liability for your injuries or illness
  • If an agreed settlement with the insurer is reached quickly (if an agreement can’t be reached, claims can take longer than 18 months to settle)
