PUBLIC LIABILITY CLAIMS
Public liability law covers a wide range of circumstances and is quite broad. If you have been injured at a park, in a shopping centre, fallen on public property or even bitten by a dog you may be eligible to make a claim. As public liability is a complicated area of law, it is a good idea to seek advice from a professional who practices in this area to ensure that you are qualified to make a claim and have a good chance of reaching positive result.
MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS
All medical practitioners and medical clinics/facilities have a duty of care, if you have suffered financial, psychological or physical harm you may be eligible to make a claim.
SUPERANNUATION AND INSURANCE CLAIMS
If you are unable to work, due to illness or disability, you may be eligible to receive benefits through your superannuation, life insurance and other insurance policies. Are you having difficulty with your insurer or has your insurance claim been rejected? Your Law Firm can also help with claims relating to home and contents insurance, motor vehicle insurance, travel insurance, sickness and accident insurance and business insurance.
PRODUCT LIABILITY CLAIMS
People often purchase products without realising that they can be injured by them. You also may not know that you may be eligible to make a claim if the product is faulty. Mobile phones, airbags and breast implants are a few products where a claim can be made. If you have succumbed to pain and suffering as well as loss of enjoyment of life, loss of earnings and ongoing medical expenses you may be eligible to make a product liability claim depending on circumstances.
TOTAL AND PERMANENT DISABILITY CLAIMS
Total and Permanent Disability (also identified as TPD) is generally defined as a lump sum payment following an injury or illness which affects your capacity to work. A TPD benefit is only available through your superannuation fund. It is important to note that not all superannuation funds have TPD entitlements therefore it is important to seek legal advice earlier rather than later and you will soon know if you are eligible to make a TPD claim.
DUST DISEASE CLAIMS
Dust exposure can have serious consequences on your health. Inhaling harmful dust particles in the workplace can result in several chronic lung diseases. Workers who develop dust disease in the workplace may be entitled to claim compensation for their injuries.
