How much compensation will I receive for my international travel injury claim?

This depends on the extent of fault on the part of the service provider, will the quality of the investigation conducted by your Overseas Travel Injury Lawyers, the quality of your evidence and the case relating to future income loss that you present.

Someone whose injury has had a significant effect on their quality of life (work, psychological, physical) is entitled to more substantial compensation than someone whose injury has had a minor impact on their life.

The amount of compensation also is determined by the following:

  • General damages (loss of enjoyment in life due to suffering);
  • Out-of-pocket expenses (medical bills, rehabilitation costs);
  • Any loss of income and superannuation contributions;
  • Paid and unpaid recuperative assistance;
  • Ruined holiday loss;
  • Holiday disappointment;
  • Potential medical or personal care costs that are likely to occur due to the injury; and
  • The interest from the loss of earnings.

For overseas injuries, does overseas law apply?

“Cross-border” compensation claims carry many layers of complexity. Australian law usually applies to part of the claim and the law where the injury occurred to other parts.

It is necessary for Overseas Travel Injury Lawyers to extensively liaise with overseas counterparts on many aspects of these types of claims.

What’s my chance of a successful claim?

Every situation is different. Our Overseas Travel Injury Lawyers need to consider carefully:

  • how the accident occurred;
  • who was potentially at fault;
  • the law in the place where the injury occurred;
  • how the holiday was arranged;
  • whether the claim can be conducted in Australia and, if so in which state and;
  • many other things.

Is my claim worthwhile?

Whether your claim is worthwhile depends on the seriousness of your injury and how that affects your employment and lifestyle.

Some claims are not worthwhile such as those for trivial injuries where there is no insurer or the party at fault does not demonstrate significant assets against which a judgment can be enforced.

If you are not sure if your compensation claim is worthwhile, please contact our Overseas Travel Injury Lawyers, and we will help assess your needs and eligibility for our no-win no-fee service.

The CCL method

Our Overseas Travel Injury Lawyers will quickly review the circumstances of your case to determine your prospects of a successful insurance or compensation claim. And once we have approved your case the claim process can be promptly started following the CCL method


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.


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.


Keep collecting the facts.

Diligent claim preparation requires a comprehensive understanding of your medical income and employment histories. Our Overseas Travel Injury Lawyers 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 .


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. We’ll arrange examinations with appropriate specialists and the insurer of the at-fault party is entitled also to have you examined by its specialists.



Once all information has been collected and medical specialist reports obtained, our Overseas Travel Injury 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.



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.


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.
