Motor Vehicle Compensation Claims

Your Entitlements Under Motor Vehicle Compensation Claims.

A successful car accident claim should result in compensation for pain and suffering, general damages, and loss of quality of life. The severity of your injury will greatly influence the size of your settlement.

The Civil Liability Regulation 2003 lists a range of formulae used to assign financial value to a variety of injuries, and is applicable in Queensland. Here, courts rely on these regulations to reach a decision regarding your compensation settlement.

Damages Awarded in Car Accident Claims Settlements

Once Paramount Compensation Lawyers has reached a settlement with the insurer, you should be compensated for a combination of, or all, of the following:

  • Past, present and future medical expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
  • Loss of part of, or all of your wages.
  • Loss of superannuation entitlements.

Amounts vary significantly for each case, so we urge you to get in touch with Paramount Compensation Lawyers for a thorough (free) case assessment.

  • the will is invalid.
  • the deceased was mentally or legally unable to create a valid will (no testamentary capacity).
  • the deceased was threatened or pressured into signing a will (undue influence).

Get in touch with Paramount Compensation Lawyers today to discuss your questions and concerns regarding Wills and Estate Law.

The dictionary defines negligence as such:

"Negligence (Lat. negligentia, from neglegere, to neglect, literally "not to pick up something") is a failure to exercise the care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in like circumstances.

How much should lawyers charge for my claim ?

How Much Should Lawyers Charge For My Claim ?

During a personal injury claim or motor vehicle accident compensation claim, a lot of time is spent negotiating, analysing, and navigating the complex process. Some lawyers charge upwards of $1000 per hour of their time, adding further insult to injury.

Yes, years of experience and hundreds of cases have taught us at Paramount Compensation Lawyers exactly what goes into winning a compensation claim.

Due diligence is of utmost importance when it comes to the welfare of your family, your home or your business. Every day, we put our trust in professionals: doctors, financial advisers, realtors, builders, engineers, educators or caretakers and many more. We rely on those people to deliver the best outcomes that keep our lives ticking over safely and comfortably.

We should be able to trust our doctors to provide the best care. We expect hospitals to be places of healing. We expect homes for the aged to take good care of the most fragile of our families. And we have every right to have these expectations, and it is their responsibility to deliver.

Accountants, solicitors, and medical professionals are obliged to act "by the book", so when they fail to do what is reasonably expected and it has negative consequences, we become entitled to injury settlement.

Here at Paramount Compensation Lawyers, we have dealt with many different professional negligence cases, as diverse as:

  • medical misdiagnosis
  • delayed diagnosis
  • financial mismanagement
  • ill-guided financial advice
  • inadequate service from surveyors or builders
  • substandard legal advice with negative financial consequences

If you have suffered financial injury as the result of professional negligence, we urge you to get in touch with Paramount Compensation Lawyers before time limits come into effect. We will advise you on your personal injury claim and injury settlement.

Our specialist workers compensation lawyers understand what you are going through and they work with experts to assess your past, present and future needs to ensure that you are properly compensated.

  • Did your workplace affect your wellbeing?
  • Did your work cause a pre-existing illness, disease or injury to worsen?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you may be eligible to claim workers' compensation.

How To Claim Compensation: Workplace Claims

The first step to take after suffering an illness or injury in the workplace, is to report it to your employer within 30 days of you becoming aware of it. Your employer should assist you with obtaining the correct claim forms for you and your doctor to complete and attach to your medical certificate. Be sure to keep copies of these documents for your own records, but return the originals to your employer, who will have to sign them.

Lodge a copy of the claim form with your State's authority who handles workers' compensation.

Workers' compensation entitlements and laws vary by state and Paramount Compensation Lawyers can assist you with work related injury claims across Australia and in Campbelltown, Brisbane, Central Coast, Wagga Wagga, Griffith, Hong Kong and New York.

Wrongful Arrest

Certain criteria generally has to be met before Police may legitimately arrest a suspect, even if the person has committed the offence. Wrongful arrest claims can usually be lodged in the event that you are arrested or imprisoned for a minor offence that should have been dealt with by means of a Court Attendance Notice. Even though you may be guilty of the offence, you may still be entitled to claim wrongful arrest.

If you have been acquitted (found innocent) of charges relating to:

  • resisting arrest;
  • police hindrance;
  • or assaulting police for acting outside of the execution of their duties, you may have a claim for wrongful arrest or false imprisonment. If that is the cause, you may be eligible to claim damages for the arrest and detention in custody.

Examples of Wrongful Arrest

Wrongful arrest includes cases in which you:

  • are arrested for possession when you carry a small amount of a prohibited drug.
  • are acquitted of an offence that was not properly investigated before you were arrested.
  • are being arrested and released without being given bail conditions.
  • are being called to the station for a "chat" and being arrested when you go there voluntarily.
  • present yourself to the station after an offices leaves a message for you.
  • are arrested for having an "attitude" and no other reason.
  • are arrested so that you can be interviewed or identified.
  • are arrested despite the police knowing who you are, where you live and where they could have served a Court Attendance Notice instead.
  • are handled with excessive force during an otherwise lawful arrest.
  • are arrested since the police mistakenly thought they had a warrant for your arrest.
  • are arrested shortly after an incident, with no concern for the victims or witnesses.

This is just a small sampling of possible scenarios which could make you eligible for a wrongful arrest claim.

Remember, even if you are guilty of the offence, you may still have been wrongfully arrested. It would be in your own best interest to get in touch with Paramount Compensation Lawyers right away, so that we can assist you with our no win, no fee wrongful arrest legal advice.

Superannuation & TPD Claims

Superannuation cover is compulsory in Australia, and most policies combine superannuation and TPD (Total Permanent Disability) cover. If you take a look at your super fund policy's fine print, you may notice that you have been paying for TPD as well.

Many people who are faced with personal injuries don't realise that they may be covered for superannuation and TPD. This allows you to benefit from both your investment in the superannuation and TPD policy and compensation from Workers Compensation, public liability or other sources.

Am I Entitled to a Total Permanent Disability Benefit ?

While it is easy enough to prove that you're entitled to a death benefit, the TPD compensation will depend on the terms of your superannuation and TPD benefit. This will typically involve the scope of your disability and the period during which you are unable to earn an income, or a portion of your regular income from an occupation for which you are suitably educated, trained, and experienced.

Denied Superannuation and TPD Claims

Insurance companies wish to minimise their payouts and often look for loopholes to minimise or avoid paying benefits. Most claimants are referred to medical specialists for assessments. The goal is generally to justify the insurer's decision to deny indemnity by alleging that you are able to work in any role or capacity.

However, Paramount Compensation Lawyers don't give up that quickly. We will assist you in obtaining your own medical reports, and if necessary, commence legal proceedings. An independent judge will decide whether the insurer is reasonable in denying your claim.

We have found that once legal proceedings have commenced, settlement negotiations usually follow and matters are settled before a hearing takes place.
