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.
Injured people can submit your personal injury compensation claim by yourself, or if you have engaged a specialist personal injury lawyer in Perth, your lawyer should be able to submit the claim on your behalf.
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.
Foyle Legal is a specialist personal injury lawyer in Perth WA. We help injured people to get fair compensation payments.
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. As one of the top personal injury lawyers in Perth, Foyle Legal can help to collect this information on your behalf, and use our knowledge, experience and network to ensure that quality evidence is collected.
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.
Once the legal proceeding is commenced, it is highly recommended to have a good personal injury lawyer to one your side to assist with your personal injury claim.
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.
If your personal injury claim is proceeding to trial, it is important that you have a good personal injury lawyer on your side!
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.
