Personal Injury Compensation Claim Process

When should I submit my personal injury compensation claim?

You should submit your compensation claim straight away. There are statutory limits for the filing of claims for some injuries including motor vehicle injury claims and workers compensation claims. With all claims, if you do not notify the other side straight away, they may allege that your injury was caused by another cause. The other side may also claim they are prejudiced in not being able to investigate into the incident and not being able to have you medically reviewed.

Personal injury compensation claim process

The personal injury legal process is different depending on what kind of claim you have. If you are making a workers’ compensation claim then special rules apply, which are explained in the Foyle Legal Workers Compensation FAQ page. Motor vehicle Injury claims and public liability claims the procedure can be divided into 4 main steps. The following section will provide a brief introduction of each of the steps.

Step 1 – Inform the other side of your injury compensation claim

In motor vehicle claims you can usually do this by advising the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA) about the circumstances of the car accident. You can advise the Insurance Commission of your intention to pursue a personal injury claim at crashreport.com.au or through your legal adviser.  In public liability cases you generally have to write to the other party stating why you think they have been negligent.

Step 2 – Collect evidence concerning the personal injury claim

You need to collect medical documentation and documentation showing that you had time off work. Often people do not think about this when they are going through the initial treatment. A lawyer can help to collect this information on your behalf.

Step 3 – Commence Legal Proceedings and/or a Settlement Conference

In some circumstances it is faster and beneficial to settle your case at a settlement conference, or by written offer. In other circumstances, the other party may not be inclined to make a sufficient offer, or any offer at all, in those circumstances it may be worthwhile to commence legal proceedings. After legal proceedings have commenced, and documents have been exchanged, there is another chance to settle your case at a pre-trial conference.

Step 4 – Proceed to Trial

It is worth noting that the vast majority of cases settle in negotiation, but in some cases the parties are just so far apart that the matter proceeds to a trial. At trial you will give generally give evidence about how your injury happened, what injuries you have suffered, the effect of the accident on your work, whether other people have helped you and your medical needs.  Your doctors and people who witnessed the accident may also have to give evidence. After the other side has presented their case the judge will usually reserve their decision for a period of time, following which a judgment will be given.

Common Types of Personal Injury Claims

The law of negligence permits claimants to make injury claims in a large variety of areas including the most commonly claimed circumstance below:

Motor vehicle accidents Compensation / Car accidents compensation claim / MVA Claims

Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Claim is a type of personal injury compensation claim for people who were injured following a motor vehicle accident. Typical types of MVA claims includes but not limited to the following:

  • car accidents;
  • motorbike accidents;
  • accidents where a pedestrian is injured by a driver;
  • accidents where a cyclist on a bicycle is injured by a driver;
  • hit and run accidents;
  • accidents where one or both of the drivers involved die as a result of the accident;
  • accidents where the driver at fault dies after the accident (from unrelated causes).

If you are injured in a car accident,  motor accident, Transperth bus accident, truck accident, or other accidents on the road you may be entitled to compensation in a motor vehicle injury claim. Whiplash injury compensation is one of the most common motor vehicle accident claims.

Work Injuries / Workers Compensation claims / Workers Comp / WorkCover WA Claims

Workers’ compensation claim is a type of personal injury claim for workers who were injured during the course of their employment. This would include workplace injury compensation claims for resolution of a dispute through WorkCover and common law claims. A workplace injury may include physical injuries (eg. back injuries, neck injuries, knee injuries, hip injuries, spinal injuries, foot injuries, bicep injuries), work stress,  psychological injuries and workplace bullying. A Workplace back injury is one of the most common type of work related injury.

Usual circumstances where workplace injuries occur often involves the following:

  • injuries in the course of their normal employment;
  • injuries on another company’s work site;
  • injuries while undertaking a return to work programme for a previous work injury;
  • injuries to contractors in certain circumstances;
  • injuries while undertaking training;
  • injuries while you are on site but not working (for example undertaking sporting activities at site); and
  • injuries while you are travelling from one work related location to another work related location.

 

Public liability claims

Public Liability Claim is a type of personal injury compensation claim for people who were injured in a public place. You may have a claim, if  you have suffered a personal injury in a public place like a shopping centre, club, pub, Homeswest property, hospital, public event, rental property, or accident at private property. Slip & Trip Claims, eg  slip caused by slippery floor such as highly polished, wet or greasy surfaces, tripping on small objects such as cracks in the floor or electrical leads, are the most common type of public liability claims.

  • slip, trip and fall cases usually in shopping centres, restaurants and other public places. Most common are musculoskeletal injuries, as well as cuts, bruises, fractures and dislocations
  • claims by workers against host employers. If you are employed by one company but you are working on another company’s site, you may be able to sue the company responsible for the site.

Criminal injury claims

Criminal Injury Claim is a type of personal injury compensation claim for victim of crime. If you are a victim of a crime, for example if you have suffered personal injury as a result of an assault, you may be able to claim victims of crime compensation, or other forms of victim compensation. The maximum compensation for criminal injury compensation payout is capped at $75,000 for one incident. Strict limitation periods apply for victims of crime compensation. It is important that victims of crime seek quality legal advice to ensure you don’t incur additional legal costs in a criminal injury compensation appeal.

  • You can claim criminal injuries compensation if you are injured as a result of a criminal offence and the other party is found guilty, not charged or the police choose not to proceed with a prosecution.
  • Common charges leading to an award of criminal injuries compensation include assault, sexual assault, aggravated theft and grievous bodily harm.

Total and Permanent Disability TPD claims

TPD claims is a type of insurance claim and it is often caused by a totally and permanently disabling personal injury. Most superannuation funds offer TPD benefits. If you are unclear about your TPD entitlement, you can contact your super fund for clarification.

Other Accident Injury Claims

Serious Injury Claims & Fatal Accident Claims are also types of personal injury claims. Please note, dependents of deceased victim may be entitled to personal injury compensation.

Personal Injury Compensation Amounts

How Much Injury Compensation do I Get?

For criminal injuries compensation the maximum compensation payout is $75,000. For workers compensation there are a lot of limits as we have set out in our workers compensation page and workers comp FAQ page. For motor vehicle accidents and public liability cases there are effectively no upward limits.

The amount of injury compensation that you can get largely depends on the existence of third party evidence such as medical reports and documentation showing that you suffered a loss of earnings such as letters from your employer and your taxation returns.

Personal Injury Lawyers No Win No Fee & Personal Injury Compensation FAQ

No Win No Fee Personal Injury Lawyers

The usual procedure when you engage a personal injury lawyer and the personal injury lawyer charges you on a regular basis for work done regardless of whether you win or lose your injury claim. A no win no fee lawyer will only charge you a fee if you are successful in settling your claim for compensation or obtaining a successful judgment. Because No Win No Fee lawyers do not charge upfront legal costs, they are often referred to as No Win No Pay lawyers. Please be aware that not all No Win No Fee lawyers offer the same arrangements for legal fee, it is important that you understand  your No Win No Fee cost agreement.

The no win no fee arrangement does not mean you have nothing to lose. If you go to trial and lose then you will have to pay the other party’s legal costs and disbursements such as court costs and medical costs. As a result, it is vital that you choose a good lawyer that have good track record of success. Foyle Legal has worked on hundreds of personal injury claims and successfully recovered millions in compensation payments for our clients.
