Who pays me the workers compensation?

Workers Compensation insurance is compulsory for all employers. If you've been injured at work and the employer is found to be responsible, it's your employer's insurance company that will pay your compensation.

What is a personal injury claim?

A personal injury claim is a legal claim made by an individual who has suffered general physical and/or psychological damage at the fault of another person, whether it be the driver of another motor vehicle, another individual, or the owner or manager of a public space. Making a personal injury claim is the legal pathway for the person affected to receive compensation due to what happened to them.

How to prove a personal injury claim?

Proving a personal injury claim is no easy feat, and we’d definitely recommend enlisting the services of a professional lawyer like an LHD team member to ensure you can provide everything you need to. This might include: Evidence of the injury, negligence or damage suffered, Medical reports, Financial records, Estimated or exact costs of future medical treatment, Reports on future loss of income, Psychological reports, Police records, Insurance assessments.

How long does a personal injury claim take?

Many personal injury claims are settled before legal proceedings even commence, however in some cases, resolutions can take a number of months to be achieved. If the claim is in dispute and needs to go to court, a judge will need to be involved, meaning the case could take many months or even years to reach a conclusion. If you need to go to court, having a personal injury lawyer represent you will simplify the process and improve your chances of receiving compensation.
