Any details regarding the series of events leading to the accident must be correctly entered into the accident Book. However, if you are unsure about your rights and what you can claim for, please complete our free online legal enquiry form.

Slips, trips and falls in the workplace
Many cases involving a trip, slip or fall at work are caused by the employer's failure to comply with current safety standards in respect of hazards. In the work environment this is the employers' responsibility to provide the proper guidelines and signage to insure against such injuries. However, if you've been unfortunate enough to still suffer from an injury in the workplace you can make a personal injury compensation claim your employer. They have an obligation to ensure that the work environment is hazard free and safe.

This time limit may be extended if you unaware of the cause of your symptoms until further down the line.

Accidents in a public place
The safety of all the public and visitors to privately owned land or property is the responsibly of those individuals. Insurance is in place for the most part to ensure that any injured parties are able to make a personal injury compensation claim in the event of an injury.

Slips, trips and falls in a public place
Was your accident caused by a defect on a path or pavement? or was it caused by a slippery surface? This is becoming increasingly more common. An obstacle or pothole out of place can cause an injury enabling you to bring a personal injury compensation claim against those responsible for maintaining the path or pavement - typically the council.Unfortunately, if you were to some degree responsible for causing your injuries, it is unlikely that you will be able to make a personal injury compensation claim. However, slips and falls can often be the cause of some of the most painful injuries.

Accidents in shops and restaurants
Shop premises at all times need to be free from any slipping hazards. This is the responsibility of the owner; managers. A wet floor due to spillage or unfinished cleaning must be properly signed and erected to alert members of the public to the hazard. If you have suffered an accident due in your local supermarket or shopping centre then you may be entitle to make a personal injury compensation claim.

Faulty goods and product liability
These cases arise out of situations where products are defective and cause injury as a result of the defect. Have you been injured as a result of purchasing a standard consumer product which is defective? You may be able to make a personal injury compensation claim from the manufacturer/supplier as well as individuals/companies through whom the goods may have passed.

Whiplash injuries
Suffered a whiplash injury in an accident? You must seek medical advice as soon as possible. Normally your doctor, or if it's more serious, the Accident and Emergency department of your local Hospital. As part of your claim assessment, the medical record of your injury will used. It is therefore important that your injury is documented as soon as possible after you're aware of any symptoms.

Road accidents
Road Accidents account for a large number of all accidents and personal injury compensation claims in Australia. Drivers of all vehicles are required by law to have some level of insurance. These typically are Fully Comprehensive or Third Party only. These are in place to provide adequate protection for those involved in an accident. A driver's negligence can often lead to a third party suffering a personal injury as a result and may need to place a personal injury compensation claim. This can be whether or not the driver's negligence has escalated to a police prosecution by way of a traffic infringment notice (penalty fine) or charge. A Government scheme exists to provide cover if it is discovered that a negligent driver had inadequate or no insurance at the time of the accident. In such cases, you may still be able to bring forward a personal injury compensation claim.

Road accidents involving cyclists
A personal injury compensation claim can be presented if a cyclist is involved in an accident where a third party is at fault. This may be brought against the offending third party. You may also be able to recuperate any loss or damage to your bicycle and clothing as well as loss of earnings. In addition, obtain compensation for your injuries by you starting a personal injury compensation claim.

Road accidents involving pedestrians
If a pedestrian can demonstrate their injuries were caused solely or in some way by a third party, they may be able to obtain compensation through a claim for their injuries. If as a pedestrian involved in an accident you are held partly to blame, you may still be entitled so some level of compensation.

Road accidents involving animals
Owners of livestock such as cattle or horses are duty bound to the safety of road users by maintaining adequate levels of security in respect of their livestock. Unfortunately, animals do stray onto the road and can cause accidents. If it can be shown that the owner of an animal involved in an accident neglected their duty to maintain a safe environment for road users, a personal injury compensation claim for damages may be brought against them.

Road accidents involving passengers
A successful personal injury compensation claim for damages can almost always be obtained where a passenger has suffered injuries as a result of a road traffic accident. In these situations, passengers are generally regarded as blameless. Usually they are casualties who have suffered as a result of someone else's negligence. Wearing seat belts are of utmost importance and if this is not the case it may affect the level of damages obtained.

Road accidents involving drivers
In most cases it is often another driver that has under some circumstances caused an, or it may have been due to the negligent actions of another. A driver can make a personal injury compensation claim for loss and injuries if someone else can be proven to be held responsible.

Accident at Work
Many accidents occur in the workplace and under many different circumstances. Employers have a responsibility and a duty of care under the many regulations. They must ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees and others affected by their actions. This may be on your employers premises or other premises whilst you are carrying out your employed duties.

It is a requirement, by law, that all employers have Employers Liability Insurance. It is the insurance company that pay the compensation to which you may be entitled in the event of an injury at work. The insurance policy will cover all full and part time employees, self-employed persons and voluntary workers. Workplaces can be any type of premises and working environment such as offices, factories, shops, warehouses, building sites etc.

Employers have a duty of care to provide a safe workplace, safe machinery, plant and equipment, safe system of work etc. An injury in the workplace may have been sustained due to faulty equipment or inadequate training, cables across the floor, poor desk and computer layout etc. Many injures occur on building sites for all sorts of reasons including falling from scaffolding and ladders, unprotected risk areas etc.

It is important that employees are aware that they are protected by legislation. The employer can not terminate your employment for making a compensation claim for an injury in the workplace.

Slips, Trips & Falls
If you suffer an injury from a slip or trip on the pavement or roadway due to a pothole or uneven paving slabs etc. you may be entitled to claim for compensation. This can be on private or public land and premises. These accidents commonly occur in shops, grocery stores, shopping centres, walkways, and just about any other location outside your own home.

These types of accidents can occur anywhere and somebody is always responsible for the maintenance. They have a duty to ensure it is reasonably safe. Another accident example could be slipping in supermarkets and the like, due to a spillage or squashed produce on the floor.

Medical Negligence / Clinical Negligence
Occasionally a doctor, dentist or surgeon makes an error that perhaps causes you to suffer injury or become unwell.

If you are a victim of medical negligence, incompetence or carelessness you may be entitled to claim for compensation. Medical cases are often complex and require intense investigation and expert medical knowledge. There are often conflicting expert medical opinions that have to resolved. The fact that one Expert giving an opinion may have done things in a different way does not necessarily mean that there was a breach of duty of care.

This applies to all forms of medical treatments including opticians, dentistry, psychiatrists, midwifes etc. whether its is public treatment or private treatment makes no difference.

Occupational Disease / Illness
Your employer is under a legal duty to protect employees from exposure to hazardous chemicals, dust, fumes, vapours, loud noises, constant repetitive movement, vibration from handheld tools, etc.

Employers must provide training and appropriate personal protective and safety workwear and equipment to ensure employees are not exposed to hazards in risk areas to carry out their job.

If the employer fails to protect you from a health risk that causes you illness or disease you may have a claim for compensation.
