Car accident injuries
Road users who are involved in a car accident in NSW are often entitled to receive compensation if they are injured, whether it’s a relatively minor complaint such as whiplash or a total and permanent disability (TPD). Drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians are all eligible, and you may still be able to secure a payout even if you are partly responsible for the crash.
Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals all owe their patients a duty of care, but when this is breached it can lead to medical negligence claims. This is a complex area of law, although it covers misdiagnoses, failure to warn people of the dangers of surgery and delivery of the wrong medication.
Ever slipped over in a supermarket or tripped on a poorly maintained pavement? You could be entitled to make a public liability claim against the organisation or individual responsible. In fact, public liability can even stretch to accidents in your own home if faulty workmanship is to blame.
When you sustain an injury that leaves you totally and permanently disabled, it’s only fair that you receive compensation to cover your economic losses and pain and suffering. Fortunately, your insurance or superannuation policy may enable you to make a TPD claim if you’re in a particularly serious accident.
Mesothelioma, silicosis and asbestosis are just some of the critical illnesses associated with inhaling hazardous materials. Many people contract these diseases due to their employment, particularly if they handled asbestos.
