Personal Injury

Public Guy

    Personal injury claims are civil actions, which means that if a business or other person should cause you (the Plaintiff) an injury and they are deemed at fault, the legal remedy is in the form of damages and you will receive an amount of money from the liable party (the Defendant). In NSW, most personal injury claims will require you as the claimant to prove any injuries you sustained were the fault of another person or business. If you have sustained an injury due to somebody else’s negligence, you are most likely to be entitled to make a personal injury claim, but you need to get professional advice and lodge the claim as soon as possible because there are strict time limits. With Workers’ Compensation claims, no matter who is at fault, an injured worker is entitled to compensation, even if the worker’s negligence caused their injury, they would still be entitled to claim Workers’ Compensation benefits.
