Work & Motor Vehicle and Personal Injury Claims
Personal injuries can occur in day-to-day life. People often suffer ongoing pain, disability and financial distress as a result of injury, either through motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents or because of another person.
The law of negligence operates to protect people who have suffered injury including back pain, neck pain, whiplash, brain or head injury, burn injury etc.
If you have suffered an injury at work you may be entitled to a workers’ compensation claim (the ‘statutory claim’). Under this avenue, you will be entitled to initial medical treatment or other rehabilitation payments for the time you have off work. However, you may also be entitled to a common law claim for damages, which can cover future economic loss and future medical treatment. Time limits apply to bringing forth a claim.
