If you have suffered any kind of personal injury, whether it be at work, a road traffic accident, or something as simple as a fractured finger, then you are entitled to compensation in Australia.
Personal injury lawyers are well versed in all aspects of personal injury law and can advise you on what your next steps should be. However, finding a good personal injury lawyer in Australia is not easy. There are literally hundreds of law firms specialising in this field out there and most are extremely competitive. Finding a one in your area that is suitable for your needs can take some time, and many will reject the first offer that you make. However, there are ways that you can get legal advice and representation without having to pay anything if you seek legal aid in Australia.
The most efficient way to find personal injury lawyers is to seek the counsel of an experienced legal professional with experience in representing clients in a specialized area with many a conquest under their belt in the courtroom. Many law societies have lawyers that specialise in particular areas of law such as family law, commercial law, or asbestos claims. You can ask your local law society for a list of specialists within the law society in your area. You can also look for solicitors that are members of a professional organization such as the Law Society of Upper Australia (LSUAA). The LSUAA is the peak body for the legal profession in Australia and any member of this organization is bound by strict ethical codes of conduct.
If you have been injured in an accident that was not your fault, then you may have been offered a compensation payment by the other party. The compensation payment could come in the form of an out of court settlement or it may come in the form of an out of court settlement followed by court proceedings. The most common way that people receive compensation payments from another party is through an out of court settlement. However, sometimes personal injury lawyers who are working on a contingency basis receive some of their fees from the other side. This is usually done in situations where the claimant is unable to receive any compensation due to injuries that have occurred in a public place.Denis Mackenzie at CRN
