How Gerard Malouf & Partners can help you

You may be eligible for compensation if you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, in a public place or under the care of an institution. Filing a compensation claim enables victims to receive a payout covering the cost of the injury — both economic and non-economic.

  • The coverage of economic damages: Compensation may cover the measurable past and future financial losses associated with the injury, such as medical expenses, lost wages and other out-of-pocket costs — with the intended goal of alleviating the injury’s financial burden. 
  • The coverage of non-economic damages: Compensation for the psychological impairments associated with the injury, generally relating to the victim’s decreased quality of life. 


If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, GMP can help. Here are the types of claims that we regularly handle: 

  • Medical Negligence Claims: When you’re in the care of an accredited specialist in the medical field, you are owed a level of duty of care. When this agreement is breached and results in your injury, you could be eligible for compensation.
  • Motor Vehicle & Car Accident Claims: Being injured in a car accident can lead to a painful and lengthy recovery. We can help you maximise your payout.
  • Public Liability Claim: Any public space has a duty of care to provide a safe area for its occupants. If the owners and operators fail to provide this care and you become injured, you could file a public liability claim.
  • Workers Compensation Claims: Your employer legally owes you a safe place to work, even in the most dangerous of occupations. If this agreement is breached, you have the option of filing a workplace negligence claim.
  • Superannuation and Personal Disability Claims: Your superannuation is there whenever you’re no longer working. If you are injured with a total and permanent disability, you can file a superannuation or personal disability claim.
  • Dust Disease, Mesothelioma and Asbestos Claims: If you are suffering from dust disease as a result of inhaling harmful particles, you may be entitled to compensation.
  • Professional Negligence Claims: If a professional in any industry fails to meet the expectations set forth at the start of your agreement, then you could be eligible for professional negligence compensation.
  • Sexual Assault & Child Abuse Claims: When in the care of a school, foster care, religious facility or other institution, you should never feel unsafe. If you’ve been sexually, physically or psychologically abused, we can help you receive retribution through damages.
  • Product Liability Compensation Claims: A manufacturing defect that results in injury is an example of a product liability compensation claim you could make.
  • Travel Accident Compensation Claims:  If an injury or illness occurs due to negligence while on holiday or while travelling on public transport, you have the option of filing a travel accident compensation claim. 
  • Will and Family Inheritance Disputes: You may be able to contest a will if you have evidence of a lack of testamentary capacity, inadequate provision, undue influence or executor misconduct.
  • Class Actions: We can represent a group of people who have suffered loss or injury due to the negligence of another party.

Filing a claim with GMP Law

Gerard Malouf & Partners is Australia’s leading personal injury law firm. We know where the statutes of limitations lie for your specific compensation claim within your state or territory. 

We recommend that you begin documenting your injuries following an accident, or as soon as your injury or illness has been realised. Our experienced team will help you to understand the eligibility for a claim, as well as the right time to start the claims process based on your unique circumstance. 

A serious injury can impede your everyday life, particularly considering that your financial obligations don’t stop even if you can’t do your job. Our responsibility is to make sure you get the compensation you need to carry on and recover from your injury.

Our no-win, no-fee policy ensures that you feel free to seek legal advice without the worry of paying for our services right away. The most important part for us is to ensure you are comfortable getting all the help you need — medical, legal and other support — after you’ve been in an accident. 

We also provide a written commitment to our clients that we will reduce our legal fees if they are not happy with the result of a compensation claim.

The eligibility criteria

Specific eligibility criteria differ across the different forms of personal injury claims, with local state legislation a factor. However, in general, you can file a personal injury claim if you have suffered at the hands of another who legally owes you a duty of care. 

Your personal injury lawyer will guide you on the specifics of your case and the types of compensation you may be owed — whether compensating economic or non-economic losses. 



What can I expect in compensation?

Compensation law involves helping victims of injury earn the payment coverage they need to recover from the accident. In a successful case, you could get seven different types of compensation coverage:

  • Base Pay.
  • Commissions.
  • Overtime Pay.
  • Bonuses, Profit Sharing, Merit Pay.
  • Travel/Meal/Housing Allowance.
  • Medical expenses coverage.
  • Other benefits such as dental, insurance, medical, vacation, leaves, retirement and taxes.

Your level of injury, pain and suffering, and the capability to return to work will determine how much compensation the Courts will award you.


What are examples of pain and suffering?

Pain and suffering refers to the physical and emotional distress a victim experiences due to an injury. Injuries commonly result in psychological impairment, significantly impacting the ability of the claimant to enjoy their lives. Such impairments are accounted — and compensated— for

Here are some examples:

  • Loss of quality of life: If your days are filled with doctors’ appointments, rehabilitation or medication side effects, you may feel like your quality of life has significantly decreased.
  • Loss of enjoyment of life: In a situation like a loss of a limb or limited mobility that affects your ability to live the life you were used to before the accident could make you eligible for pain and suffering compensation.
  • Grief, depression, anxiety, anger: Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of an accident or high emotional distress is an unfortunately common reaction to a major accident.

Pain and suffering reach far beyond just feeling upset after an accident. It can greatly affect the way you live your life or even your ability to function independently as you once did. We believe you deserve compensation for your economic and non-economic injuries.
