How Does Personal Injury Compensation Work in Queensland?

You can be harmed in a variety of ways, none of which are your fault. Motor vehicle collisions and work-related accidents are the two most prevalent types of accidents that end in injury. Accidents also occur on rented properties, in public areas, at entertainment venues, in hotels and resorts, in hospitals, on cruise ships, and on aircraft and airports.

In all of those locations, the driver, occupier, operator, employer, council, physician, or owner owes you a duty of care to exercise reasonable care for your safety, and they are obliged to compensate you for any ensuing loss if they fail to do so.

How are your injuries determined for the purpose of calculating a personal injury payout?

Prior to determining the quantum of your claim, or the amount of compensation your personal injury claim is worth, an evaluation of culpability for the accident must be made, as well as if any contribution to the accident occurred. Additionally, it is critical to gather all of the documents necessary to support your claim in order to establish accurate estimations.

Once the issues of liability and contributory negligence have been settled, as well as the presentation of all required evidence, a quantum opinion can be issued. If you settle your claim or if a court awards you money in your favour, the money you get is referred to as “damages.”

A quantum opinion will define the anticipated low and high ranges of total compensatory damages. The amount of your claim is determined by a variety of different sorts of harm, as illustrated below. Calculations are complex, and they are dependent on the facts and circumstances unique to your personal injury case.

Because each personal injury claim is unique, the value is established on an individual basis. However, for your convenience, we’ll go through some of the critical criteria that go into establishing the worth of your personal injury claim, based on the sort of harm sustained.

What is calculated for a personal injury payout?

  • General damages: Refers to the pain, suffering, and loss of amenities you experienced as a result of the incident’s injuries.
  • Economic loss: In consideration your past and future losses of wages, as well as your past and future losses of superannuation benefits.
  • Past economic loss: A Court will consider the time you were forced to miss from work as a result of your injuries when determining your previous economic loss.
  • Future economic loss: In the same way that past economic losses required both parties to investigate your tax and employment records.
  • Loss of superannuation: Your claim for future superannuation loss will be calculated using the higher statutory rate.
  • Special damages: Any injury-related benefits received from statutory departments are referred to as special damages.
  • Statutory refunds: We will collect accounts of the sums paid from these agencies prior to the end of your claim.
  • Gratuitous care & assistance: This relates to the unpaid care you received from people who cared for you when you were injured/ill.
  • Loss of servitude / consortium: An award for damages for loss of servitude and loss of consortium may be appropriate in specific cases.
  • Exemplary, punitive or aggravated damages: In most personal injury cases, exemplary, punitive, or aggravated damages are not granted.
  • Legal costs: Depending on the value of your claim, you may be eligible for a legal expenses award.

The CCL method

Our Personal Injury Lawyers Gold Coast will promptly assess the facts of your case to establish your chances of prevailing in a personal injury claim. And after your case has been authorised, the claim is expeditiously initiated via the CCL process.

Process

Assemble the initial information you are able to provide

Proper case preparation demands meticulous attention to detail. That's why right from the start, we collect all the facts and continuously verify them with you and other sources. Constant updates to your comprehensive statement will ensure everyone - you, us, medical specialists and barristers - stay precisely on the same page.

Process

Prepare initiating Claim Notice.

Once sufficient facts have been collected and the identity of the at-fault party confirmed, and initial Claim Notice can be completed in a way that persuasively asserts the basis and extent of your compensation request.

Process

Keep collecting the facts.

Diligent claim preparation requires a comprehensive understanding of your medical income and employment histories. Our Personal Injury Lawyers Gold Coast will obtain records from accident related treatment provided as well as from health professionals who have treated you for any prior conditions. Employment and income records asked also be collected and diligently examined .

Process

Medical investigation of injury.

The extent of accident related injury must be independently verified by medical experts. Because compensation is paid for the permanent effects from an injury, specialist medical assessment is deferred until 9 – 12 months post injury. Our Personal Injury Lawyers Gold Coast arrange examinations with appropriate specialists and the insurer of the at-fault party is entitled also to have you examined by its specialists.

Process

Formulation

Once all information has been collected and medical specialist reports obtained, our Car Accident Lawyers will carefully formulate the "damages" components of your claim demand. The CCL Method requires that every component - general damages, lost wages, expenses you have incurred, the value of past and future domestic care and the value of loss of future earning capacity - is based on authoritative evidence.

Process

Negotiation

After the insurer has considered your damages ask, a settlement conference is arranged to attempt to negotiate a resolution. Although informal, the success of the conference depends on the extent of preparation that has gone before it. Offers will be exchanged and if the insurer is being reasonable, the conference offers a good opportunity to finalise the claim.

Process

Settlement not reached: heading to court

If you are unable to reach an agreement within 60 days after the conference, a Claim and Statement of Claim must be filed in court in relation to your accident. The defendant may then file a Defence and the court process then continues until the dispute is listed for a trial where witnesses are called to give oral evidence and a judge makes a final determination.
