Personal Injury Lawyers

If you’ve been injured or become ill because of the actions or inactions of someone else, you may be eligible for compensation.

A personal injury claim takes action against the person, company or agency responsible for your injury or illness. Specifically, the claim seeks compensation for medical costs, lost income and other resulting costs. The purpose of the compensation is to restore you to your financial position before the injury or illness.

Our expert personal injury lawyers can help you with your claim and guide you through the process.

Asbestos diseases

Asbestos is a natural mineral fibre which was used in more than 3,000 Australian building products from the 1940s until 1985, including asbestos or fibro cement sheeting and heat-resistant clothing.

Aviation law

If you or someone in your family has been injured by an aircraft or in an aircraft accident, you may be able to claim compensation. Depending on the injuries, you could claim for immediate and future pain and suffering, lost income, other financial losses (including superannuation), medical expenses and impairment benefits.

Consumer protection

Making a product liability claim can be intimidating, especially when large organisations and insurance companies use legal jargon to confuse you. You have the right to expect that the products you use are not defective.

Medical negligence

You have the right to trust your medical provider to look after you properly.

Public liability

Public liability covers a wide range of circumstances in which someone is injured because of the negligence of someone else.

Road accident injuries

Sexual and institutional abuse

If you have suffered from sexual or physical abuse, no amount of financial redress can take away the pain caused. In many cases of abuse the injuries can be severe and long-lasting, often staying with survivors throughout their lifetime. However, you may be entitled to compensation to support you.

Work related injuries

If you've been injured in the workplace or if your psychological health has been affected by your work, you may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation.

Occupational diseases

An occupational or industrial disease is an illness caused—or contributed to—by work, including pre-existing diseases if work has aggravated the condition.
