The Importance of Hiring a Cairns Personal Injury Lawyer

You should know the importance of hiring a Cairns personal injury lawyer when seeking compensation for an injury-related loss. An expert lawyer or solicitor understands the legal process, how to negotiate with insurance companies, and how to get you the best possible outcome.

Understanding the Compensation Legal Process

Depending on the circumstances of how you were harmed, the Queensland compensation legal process can be complex and multi-layered. This situation is compounded when:

  • there are multiple liable parties for your accident
  • one or more defendants deny responsibility for your injuries
  • you had pre-existing medical conditions prior to the accident
  • your situation is covered by several pieces of legislation
  • the liable party disputes your version of events
  • numerous other obstacles to success

Fortunately, our personal injury lawyers have a comprehensive understanding of the legal process and expertise in all of the above (and others). They know every case is unique and requires extensive analysis to find the most effective path to a positive resolution. When you contact us for your free claim review, please share your story with our skilled legal team to discover the best strategy for your desired result.

Negotiating with Insurance Companies

When you have a successful personal injury compensation claim, your lump sum payment is typically funded by an insurance company. Generally, the value of your loss is negotiated and settled by mediation. Unsurprisingly the insurer will seek the lower their level of liability by:

  • Finding a reason to say you contributed to the accident (were partially liable)
  • Challenging the severity of your injuries
  • Minimising its impact on your life

Thankfully, the team at Splatt Lawyers Cairns have been negotiating with aggressive insurance companies for many years and understands the techniques they use to reduce your entitlements. Know that our focus is to deliver your best outcome, and we have the legal smarts to make that a reality.

Personal Injury Claims Explained

You could claim compensation when the negligence of another person or party causes you a physical or psychological injury. Personal injury claims are brought in North Queensland as the outcome of a range of incidents, including traffic accidents, workplace injuries, accidents in public spaces, and more. To have a successful payout, you must:

  1. Prove that someone else caused your injuries and that; as a result, you experienced a loss.
  2. Before filing a personal injury claim, get medical treatment for your injuries. This ensures that you get the appropriate care and offers proof of the damage you have sustained.
  3. Keep a complete record of all medical care you receive, as will be required to support your case.
  4. Contact a personal injury lawyer in Cairns for informed legal advice.

Types of Legal Advice from Personal Injury Lawyers in Cairns QLD

Contact our Cairns-based personal injury lawyers for expert legal insights for a range of compensation legal matters.

Traffic Accident Lawyers

One of the frequent reasons for personal injury claims in Cairns is traffic accidents. To have a successful road or motor vehicle accident claim, your injury must be the outcome of negligent driving. Understanding who is the at-fault driver is one of the primary factors for lodging a case. Even if you were partly to blame (contributory negligence) for the collision, you could still have a case.

In Queensland, CTP insurance is mandatory for all motorists. When the unexpected happens, and you have an accident on FNQ roads, the compulsory third-party insurer of the negligent driver is liable to fund your personal injury damages claim.

Our Cairns accident lawyers have a great deal of experience pursuing the legal rights of injured people through MAIC. Contact Splatt Lawyers for assistance with the following:

Workplace Injury Lawyers

When you are injured at work, our lawyers let you know if you are entitled to compensation. Be aware you do not need to establish negligence in order to receive workers’ compensation benefits for an accident, illness, or injury.

In Queensland, WorkCover is the primary insurer for the majority of employers, which means you seek WorkCover insurance benefits when you are harmed on the job. Depending on your circumstances, you could be eligible for a workers’ compensation (WorkCover) claim, whole personal impairment claim or common law damages claim.

Successfully navigating the QLD workers’ compensation system is tricky and generally requires the support of an experienced work injury lawyer. Splatt Lawyers Cairns has substantial expertise with
