Personal Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury compensation claims

If you’ve been injured or become ill because of the actions or inactions of someone else, you may be eligible for compensation.

A personal injury claim takes action against the person, company or agency responsible for your injury or illness. Specifically, the claim seeks compensation for medical costs, lost income and other resulting costs. The purpose of the compensation is to restore you to your financial position before the injury or illness.

Our expert personal injury lawyers can help you with your claim and guide you through the process.

Work related injuries

If you've been injured in the workplace or if your psychological health has been affected by your work, you may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation.

Road accident injuries

If you have been injured as the result of a road or car accident, Maurice Blackburn’s dedicated car accident lawyers can fight for you. We are a national firm with the resources and dedication needed to achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Public liability

Public liability covers a wide range of circumstances in which someone is injured because of the negligence of someone else.

Medical negligence

Medical professionals have a duty of care to patients that ensure their safety and wellbeing. A case of medical negligence, medical malpractice or medical mismanagement happens when treatment falls below an acceptable standard. If standards are not met, Maurice Blackburn medical negligence lawyers can assist you with compensation claims.

Asbestos diseases

Exposure to asbestos fibres and dust can result in asbestos diseases, which usually don't reveal symptoms until decades later. Maurice Blackburn has a team of dedicated asbestos lawyers who can help people suffering from asbestos-related diseases make a claim for compensation.

Occupational diseases

An occupational or industrial disease is an illness caused by work, or any pre-existing diseases that were aggravated due to work commitments. If you have experienced this, Maurice Blackburn lawyers can assist you with industrial disease compensations to lessen your financial burden.

Abuse law

If you have suffered from sexual or physical abuse, no amount of financial redress can take away the pain caused. In many cases of abuse the injuries can be severe and long-lasting, often staying with survivors throughout their lifetime. However, you may be entitled to compensation to support you.

Consumer protection

Making a product liability claim can be intimidating, especially when large organisations and insurance companies use legal jargon to confuse you. You have the right to expect that the products you use are not defective.

Aviation law

If you or someone in your family has been injured by an aircraft or in an aircraft accident, you may be able to claim compensation. Depending on the injuries, you could claim for immediate and future pain and suffering, lost income, other financial losses (including superannuation), medical expenses and impairment benefits.

Personal injury compensation

Each state and territory has its own laws that apply to personal injury cases, so your claim will depend on where you live and where your injury or illness occurred.

Maurice Blackburn Lawyers can help you every step of the way and get you the compensation you need following your injury. Depending on your case, compensation for personal injury will cover things like:

  • medical costs (including past and future costs)
  • lost income (including past and future income)
  • damage to or loss of property
  • pain, suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
  • home help and attendant care.
