What is The Process for Going Through a Personal Injury Claim?
The first step: Get in touch with our personal injury lawyers Brisbane to find out if you have a viable claim for compensation. We will perform an assessment and will make a recommendation as to whether it is appropriate to proceed with a WorkCover claim. WorkCover operates as a ‘no-fault’ scheme where compensation is allowed in circumstances suffered by workers in the usual course of duties. There are some circumstances in which WorkCover will not provide compensation, including injuries caused by serious and willful misconduct, intentional injuries and self-inflicted injuries.
The next step: Prepare your action for compensation. This will include gathering evidence, organising medical evidence and taking witness statements. We take care of all of this for you and will be by your side to explain the process in plain language.
The final step: Settle your claim or proceed to court. Most personal injury claims will be settled without having to go to court – but if the matter does proceed to this stage, we have the experience to represent you confidently. In most cases, your matter will be settled through mediation prior to proceeding to court.
We understand that you may have recently been injured and may still be recovering, or you might have been injured semi-recently. It is important to commence your claim for compensation following your workplace accident as soon as possible. Medical reports and evidence needs to be gathered to support your claim, and the more current this information is, the better.
