Are you entitled to compensation?

Whether you’ve been injured in a public or privately owned space or in a motor vehicle accident, then we will advise you on your rights to seek compensation.

 

In South Australia, the laws relating to personal injury are governed by previously decided cases and the Civil Liability Act 1936 SA.

No win No Fee?

If we assess that you have a good chance of receiving compensation from an insurer, we’ll back you with a no win, no fee agreement.
This means we don’t get paid until you do.

If you claim is successful then our fees will be deducted from your settlement.

What will Adelaide Legal do to confirm if I have a compensation claim?

We will do some initial investigations to find out who to claim against and your chances of success.

What is the process and what can I claim for?

Firstly we will send the owner, occupier and or insurer an ‘Early Notice of Personal Injury,’ as required under the Uniform Civil Rules 2020 SA.

Medical Assessment

Once your injury or injuries are considered stable then you will be assessed by a relevant medical professional, for example your GP and possibly an appropriate specialist of some kind, who will provide us with a report.

Rating Your Claim

Using this report we will assign a point score to your claim on a scale of 1 to 60, except for a motor vehicle accident which will be assigned a number in line with the relevant ISV scale.

Presenting Your Claim

We will then compile and present a claim on your behalf, including economic loss, pain and suffering, plus medical expenses and any other matters that fall within a compensation claim.

How Your Claim Is Assessed

Your entitlement to compensation for non-economic losses commonly referred to as pain and suffering, is dependent on the points score agreed between the parties, amongst more.

What Else Can You Claim For?

There are other heads of losses you can also claim including past and future economic loss, past and future paid or voluntary care, past and future medical expenses.

We can assist you on what heads of loss you’re eligible to claim.

How much will the claim process cost me?

Please contact us for a no obligation chat to discuss your personal injury claim with you in more detail.

If we assess that you have a good chance of receiving compensation, we’ll back you with a no win – no fee agreement.

This means we don’t get paid until you do.

You may need to pay for out of pocket expenses such as fees for medical reports.

If your claim is successful then our fees will be deducted from your settlement. We’ll give you an estimate of our fees at the start of your matter to give you an idea of the fees that will be deducted.

If your claim doesn’t fall under our no win – no fee agreement then we will provide you with an estimate of our fees to action the matter for you, plus the funds required to commence the matter.

How long will it take for me to receive my compensation?

It is usually best to wait until a medical professional is of the opinion that your injuries have stabilised. This is because until then, we can’t be sure of the full extent of your injuries and therefore what you are entitled to claim.
A typical claim may take between 12 to 18 months to resolve, however, a more difficult matter could take longer.
We will keep you informed every step of the way regarding time lines on the information we have at the time.
Please note that there are strict time limits that apply to this type of claim. Make sure you realise your rights to a personal injury claim and contact the team at Adelaide Legal.
