Top 3 Reasons Your Injury Compensation is Reduced

Foyle Legal specialises in helping injured people to maximise their personal injury compensation payout. Injured people come to us at various stages with their personal injury claims, and we help them to maximise their compensation. In our observation,  we found that the top 3 reasons that that injured people fail to receive compensation, or had their compensation reduced are the lack of: 1) quality legal advice; 2) quality evidence; 3) quality claim management.

Quality Legal Advice

For most injured people (plaintiff), you probably will only go through the process 1 or 2 times in your entire life time.  When you are claiming personal injury compensation, like workers compensation claim or a car accident injury claim, you are claiming against an insurance company. Depending on the size of your claim, it is very often that the insurer is represented by an insurance law firm, who specialises in dealing the type of injury claim. If you don’t have quality legal advice, you may be disadvantaged.

There many law firms that offer legal representation in personal injury claim. But not every firm is specialised in personal injury claims. It is important that you choose a firm that is specialised in personal injury compensation in Western Australia.

Once you have chosen a quality personal injury law firm to represent you, please be sure that you: 1) disclose all information relating to your claim truthfully to your lawyer; 2) work with your lawyer to maximise your compensation. Please remember, getting quality legal advice only yields positive outcome if you disclose all information truthfully, and follow the advice from the compensation expert.

Quality Evidence

In Western Australia, strict time limits apply to most type of personal injury claims. If you are working with a quality injury compensation lawyer, your lawyer would advise you on when and how to obtaining quality evidence for your injury compensation claim. The common issues we found on the medical evidence front are: 1) incomplete evidence; and 2) biased evidence.  Please be mindful that getting the appropriate evidence is an art as well as a science. It often takes time and money to get better evidence. In most cases, the additional time and money you spend on evidence will result in better compensation payout for you. However, there times that such investment does not yield additional benefit to the overall compensation payout for your claim. Therefore, knowing when to stop is as important as knowing when to proceed. If you are unsure about getting evidence for your injury compensation claim, contact Foyel Legal for an obligation free consultation. At Foyle Legal, your first telephone discussion is free.

Incomplete Evidence

For example, if you suffered a whiplash injury in a car accident, when you talk to your treating doctor, there may be many conversations relating your neck, or back pain. As a result, there will be evidence about your physical pain. However, it is not uncommon for car accident injury victims suffer some sort of the psychological impact as a result of the injury. Unfortunately, the awareness of psychological injury is less published compare to physical injury. It is not uncommon that injured people just simply did not aware of the impact until it is too late. If you have a good injury compensation lawyer, your lawyer would ensure all necessary assessments are performed by an approved medical practitioner prior to the statutory expiration period, and you compensation payout should appropriate both your physical and psychology injury.

Biased Evidence

Here is a common scenario for biased evidence. Your make workers compensation claim about workplace back injury. You received medical treatment which is paid for by your employer’s insurer. They then send you to doctors for medical review. Post the review, your insurer’s doctor provide a report stating that you have no work restrictions and are ready to go back to work. However, you know that you are not 100% there. For example, you found it difficult perform certain pre injury duties.  So, you go to another doctor, which is not paid by insurer to get a second opinion. Upon a second review, you receive another report stating that you are not fit for your pre-injury role. If you hadn’t received the second opinion, you may choose to make a return to work, which will have impact on your compensation payout. Furthermore, if you have returned to work when you are not ready, this may cause further injury to your back.

If you have a good compensation lawyer on your side, your lawyer would advise you proper course of action prior to statutory limitation period.

Quality Claim Management

Once you have made a personal injury claim, it is often the case that the insurer will have a dedicated claim officer to manage your claim. Your claim manager is a well trained professional with systems, and supports to manage your claim. As for injured people, many of you may still overwhelmed by the impact of the injury on you, and are trying to understand the claim process as you progress. It is our observation that many injured people are in a very reactive position once they made the claim. If you are working with a good compensation lawyer,  your lawyer will manage the claim for you and provide you with timely advise to add value to your personal injury claim.

The above are the 3 most common reasons that we observed which have led to reduction of compensation payout. Every injury claim is different and deserves individual attention. If you have made a personal injury claim, call Foyle Legal for an obligation free consultation. Foyle Legal provides No Win No Fee solutions to all qualified personal injury claims.
