Injury Or Illness
Suffering a personal injury or illness is a highly distressing experience. When it occurs as a result of work, or the actions of others, it can be even more upsetting to both you and your family.
The team at DSA Law understand that this is a time when you require not only the best possible legal advice, but also support and understanding.
We provide advice on how you may be compensated, depending on the circumstances in which you were injured. Claims for lost income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, can be evaluated and pursued on your behalf.
We will provide a range of fee arrangements including “no win, no fee” depending on the type of case, and your circumstances.
Our range of services include the following:
Medical Negligence Claims
If you have suffered injury as a result of medical treatment, either through mismanagement, or illness from mis-diagnosis, we can advise you in this complex area of the law. Unsatisfactory surgical outcomes, and lack of informed consent may also be eligible causes of action. We understand that this can often be a highly emotional issue to deal with. We work with highly experienced members of the legal profession and have access to significant expert resources in this area.
Work Injury Claims
If you are injured or become sick due to your employment, you may be entitled to claim under the workers’ compensation scheme, WorkCover. Injuries that occur directly, or underlying conditions made worse by your employment, can be compensated. There are many aspects to dealing with WorkCover insurers, and we will ensure all your rights are protected.
Public Liability Claims
Injuries in both public and private properties and spaces, that occur as a result of lack of duty of care or negligence, may be eligible for compensation. Areas such as shopping centres, footpaths, parks and recreation areas and the like are all required to be safe. We provide detailed advice and options to best assist in your particular circumstance.
Transport Accident Claims
Compensation for injuries involving cars, motorcycles, bicycles, and other vehicles, is provided for under the Transport Accident Commission compensation scheme. There are a variety of benefits available under this scheme that are not always easily accessible. Specialist advice is essential in this area of compensation, and we can provide it.
Institutional & Historical Abuse Claims
Sexual, and other forms of abuse are particularly traumatic, and require a depth of understanding and care. DSA will provide discreet advice to you, or family members who have been victims of abuse, either currently or in the past, whether this occurred within schools, churches, state institutions, prisons, or other organisations. DSA will also provide assistance with applications under the Federal Government Redress Scheme.
DSA is committed to the protection of people’s legal rights, and assisting them through difficult periods of life. It costs nothing to discuss your claim with us – our first consultation is free of charge.
