You may be eligible for personal injury compensation. However, all compensation claims are subject to strict time
limits. Contact our specialist lawyers today and don’t miss out on compensation that may be rightfully due to you.
Common personal injury cases include car and motor vehicle accidents, being injured by a faulty product, slip and fall in public areas like a shopping centre, accidents at the workplace, medical malpractice or even working in hazardous conditions like exposure to asbestos.
Most personal injury cases involve negligence. For the law to determine if a personal injury claim should receive compensation, and to what extent, it has to be proved that the other party neglected their reasonable duty of care, causing the injuries. Dependants of the person injured may also seek compensation.
While most personal injury cases are resolved in mediation between both parties, some outcomes are determined by the court of law. Under personal injury law, compensation could be paid to cover expenses like medical bills and lost income to things that are harder to quantify like general pain and suffering. Outcomes for personal injury cases that do go to court will be decided by a judge.
Taylor & Scott Lawyers will carry your expenses and disbursements relevant to your claim until its successful completion. If you do not win you do not pay Taylor & Scott any costs.
The legal system is complicated and every state has it’s own limitation and rules. That’s why you will need the expertise of a personal injury lawyer to help you succeed with your claim.
