What kind of Personal Injury Claims are the most common?
The most common type of personal injury claims is motor vehicle accident injury claims and worker compensation claims for work-related injuries.
car accident injury claim is the most common motor vehicle accident injury compensation claim. Out of all the car accident injuries, a whiplash injury claim is the most common.
In respect of workers compensation claims back injuries and neck injuries are widespread, it is also common for workers to break bones in their arms, legs or feet. In warehouse work, it is common for workers to have parts of their fingers cut off, resulting in them having to amputate at a later stage. Other injuries include burns and violent attacks by other employees or third parties.

Medical negligence claims are more common than what you would expect! If you are hurt due to medical practice, don’t rush into a medical negligence claim unless you consulted a medical negligence lawyer. This is the cost of the unsuccessful medical negligence claim can be high. It’s important to make sure you have a good chance of success before it’s too late.
What are the time limits for making a personal injuries claim?
For most personal injury claims, the limitation period is 3 years from the date of injury. However, you should consult a personal injury compensation lawyer to check to see if this is accurate. Special rules apply in respect of workers compensation. Generally, workers must elect to pursue a common law claim for compensation before the ‘termination day’.
In most cases, the termination day for an election to retain the right to seek damages in respect of that injury is the last day of the period of one year after the day on which the claim for compensation by way of weekly payments is made. The termination date can be extended in certain circumstances. The termination date may be later if liability is accepted or determined 3 months after the day on which the claim is made.
If I have totally recovered from my injury, can I still claim compensation?
If you have totally recovered from your accident, you can still make a claim for your medical costs, gratuitous services, paid services and economic loss (such as loss of wages) you had when you were incapacitated as a result of your injury. It is unlikely that you will receive any money for ‘general damages’ which includes pain and suffering as thresholds apply and injured people are unlikely to overcome these thresholds if they have made a total recovery.
How often should I see my General Practitioner in my personal injury claim?
If you have a workers compensation claim in WA, your General Practitioner will issue you with ‘progress medical certificates’ which are only valid for a certain period. You should see your General Practitioner again before that period ends.
In other personal injury claims, you should aim to see your general practitioner regularly, at least once a month, to show that your symptoms are constant and continuing. If you do not see your General Practitioner for several months and then suffer from a ‘flare-up’ of your symptoms the insurer on the other side to your claim may argue that the flare-up was caused by something other than your injury.
Additionally, if you are claiming the cost of medical treatments or other medical expenses, you need to provide evidence of the medical condition.
The other side sent me to a doctor that I disagree with, what should I do?
If there are factual inaccuracies in the report (i.e. the doctor incorrectly describes something explained by you), you should immediately note the inaccuracy, and if you have a personal injury compensation lawyer, you should let them know. If the doctor’s report is based on an inaccurate factual basis, your personal injury compensation lawyer may be able to state that less value should be put on the doctor’s report at trial and thereby increase the amount of compensation you will receive for your claim.
How long does it take to settle an injury case?
Injury claims process and duration are affected by many factors such as medical condition, the insurance companies’ attitude, and your personal goals. In general, it takes between 6 months to 2 years to settle an injury case. For more complicated injury cases, it may take longer than 2 years.
