Personal injury compensation can be awarded for a range of conditions and circumstances and can be given in the form of a lump sum payment directly to you, payment directly to any treatment providers you have or will be seeing for treatment, or in smaller payments depending on your case and whether a government body such as WorkCover or TAC are involved. Accidents can happen and it may not always appear simple and straight-forward to proceed with a personal injury claim. However, if you are in need of help and treatment to recover from your injuries, then it is only right that you should be able to access that help and treatment, and to recover as fully as possible from your experience.
If you have experienced an injury as a result of medical procedures, prescription medicines or treatments that you believe was caused by medical negligence then you may be entitled to compensation for your physical and mental distress associated with your injury, your treatment and your recovery. Similarly, if you have sustained an injury in a public place such as a shopping centre, a museum, or other public building or outdoor space, you may qualify for a public liability claim to help you with medical expenses and lost earnings while you are recovering.
