Car accidents, workplace incidents and other types of accidents result in a range of injuries. Some accidental injuries can result in lifelong impairment, while many others limit a victim’s mobility during a period of extended recovery. In addition, personal injuries frequently entail significant physical pain and emotional suffering and can result in long periods away from the workplace or prevent persons from permanently returning to work.

Common types of personal injuries commonly sustained in accidents include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries;
  • Spinal cord injuries that result in paralysis (quadriplegia/tetraplegia and paraplegia);
  • Bone fractures;
  • Burns, including severe burns that require skin grafts and leave disfiguring scars;
  • Back and neck injuries, including broken vertebrae, slipped discs, muscle strains, and torn tendons and ligaments;;
  • Foot, ankle and knee injuries that limit mobility;
  • Shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand injuries;
  • Internal injuries and haemorrhage;
  • Nerve damage that causes chronic pain;
  • Limb loss (amputation);
  • Pain, suffering and emotional distress.

Under Australian law, motor vehicle drivers and operators of machinery have a legal duty to take reasonable care for the safety of other passengers, pedestrians and occupants of other vehicles.

You may therefore be entitled to claim compensation if you believe that the other party involved at the accident was at fault or partly at fault.

There are strict time limits on these kinds of claims, so make an appointment today to see one of our Personal Injury Lawyers if you have been involved in an accident.
