What is Personal Injury?
If you are injured in a private or public place and or as a result of another person’s actions you could be entitled to compensation.
There are different types of personal injuries you can claim. These include injuries caused by slips and falls, medical negligence, intentional harm and motor vehicle accidents.
The key is first showing a duty of care exists. In many circumstances, the law says the duty exists because of the type of relationship eg landlord – tenant, doctor – patient, shopping centre owner – shopper. In other circumstances, not as well known, you can still prove a duty exists based on the specific facts of the injury.
When you suffer an injury it can be an extremely stressful time for you and your family, both physically and financially.
It can be difficult to find out the full extent of your rights and the best way forward. At Adelaide Legal, we provide you with sound legal advice and the positive assistance required to achieve the best possible result for you. It’s not always easy to discuss personal issues, worries and concerns with a stranger, but our friendly lawyers know this and do all they can to become part of your support network.
Types of Personal Injury services
We understand that when you suffer an injury it can be an extremely stressful and painful time for you and your loved ones. We manage your claim and fight for the best compensation for you so that recovery can be your priority.
When you are in the care of health professionals, it is well known they owe you a duty of care. If you are injured in some way, you may be asking questions. Do you believe something more or different should have been done in all the circumstances of your case? Is it likely the duty owed to you was breached in some way? What standard of care ought you have received?
If we have concerns, talk to us. We’re here to help.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
In South Australia the laws relating to motor vehicle injuries changed significantly. Statute now dictates the types of loss claimable when injured by a motor vehicle and also the levels of cover. The law in this area is technical and some assistance can go a long way.
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, whether as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian, then we will advise you on your rights to seek compensation.
Negligence is accidental damage and injury. Sometimes there’s more to it than that. The law also permits us to seek compensation for intentional harm. While is not as common as accidental, it often results in serious injury.
Contact us to find out how to make a claim for intentional injury.
Slip & Fall Claims
While we are out in public spaces that are privately owned an accident could happen to any one of us. Spaces open to the public that are privately own include residential and rental properties, shopping centres, schools, gyms, stadium and private schools. Owners and occupiers such as landlords and shopkeepers usually maintain adequate insurance in the case of accidental injury on their premises. But just because you are injured, you aren’t automatically entitled to compensation. You need to establish that the duty of care was breached in some way. This may be by showing proper systems of cleaning weren’t adhered to or known defects addressed in a timely fashion.
Make sure you realise your rights to compensation and contact the team at Adelaide Legal.
