Personal Injury Lawyers

The compensatory laws in personal injury cases are quite clear and precise. In case of an accident impairing the quality of life and working capacity of the victim, compensation can be demanded from the offending party or the state. It has to be proved that the victims accident was not a result of his/her own negligence. Personal Injury Lawyers help their clients in filing for compensation in cases of injuries and accidents.

The national average of injury claims

Total personal injury claims per 10,000 people in the Australian subcontinent between 1999-2010 have been calculated. Number of injury complaints filed has risen steadily with the figures peaking around 2002. This rise is a preceding phenomenon to the subsequent changes in personal injury law. Lawyers tend to overtly encourage their clients to file claims and zealously protect their rights right before they suspect that the law may change 9and not always in their favour).

In 1996 the rate was a mere 4 claims per 10,000 populations while it climbed to 10 claims per 10,000 populations in the late 2007.

Personal injury can result while driving, walking, working or in almost every situation. See Car Accidents

These injuries not only cause bodily harm but leave the victim emotionally scarred. It is in these situations that victims turn to personal injury attorneys for help.

However, claims for compensation are only valid when the accident/ injury have been the fault of some other party. The term fault here encompasses incidents of gross negligence as well as premeditated happenings. Common personal injury claims arise from traffic accidents, work injuries, tripping incidents, home accidents, holiday accidents, product defects and issues of medical negligence’s.
