What CSG Law can help you with.

Our firm possesses a wealth of knowledge in managing claims related to car and workplace incidents, in addition to public liability and medical malpractice cases. Additionally, we offer assistance with Total Permanent Disability claims via your superannuation insurance.

We’ll start with a free initial assessment of your case, so we can understand your unique situation, and give you advice about the merits of your claim and how we can help.

  • Our initial consultation can be carried out per telephone, by appointment. If you are unable to come to us, we can come to you at your home or while you are in hospital.
  • We provide you with the advice of experienced lawyers who practice in injury compensation claims.

In some cases we will undertake your claim on a ‘No win, no fee’ basis. This means that:

  • We will handle your matter speculatively and we will pay for all outlays involved with pursuing your claim (ie. medical report fees, search fees, barrister’s fees, court filing fees, mediator fees, etc.) but we will not render an account for professional fees or outlays until you achieve a successful outcome. A successful outcome occurs when you accept an amount of damages offered for your claim, or there is a judgment of the Court where the other party is ordered to pay you an amount of damages and/or costs.
  • If your claim is unsuccessful, we will make no charge for our professional fees associated with your matter.

Injuries affect everyone in different ways. A minor injury to some, may impact on another person to a much greater extent. The purpose of compensation is to pay an injured party for the loss and damage they suffer as a consequence of the injury. The more the injury or injuries impact upon your pre-accident lifestyle and employment, the more compensation you will receive. Because of the subjective nature of compensation payments for personal injury claims in Queensland, it is not possible to state a specific compensation amount for a certain injury. It will depend on what loss and damage is suffered because of that injury.

Some of the more dominant factors that impact upon compensation payments are the extent of the injury sustained as well as age, occupation, recreational interests and health of the injured party at the time the accident occurred. Every claim is unique in its circumstances, injuries and losses suffered. This makes it difficult to accurately predict the amount of compensation that an injured person will receive. It is important to speak to an experienced injury compensation lawyer for legal advice to protect the rights of you and your family.

Drivers, Passengers, Pedestrians, Cyclists

You may be entitled to claim compensation for injuries suffered in a motor vehicle accident if those injuries were caused by the negligence of another person or were partially your fault. These accidents can lead to injuries such as whiplash, spinal injuries, head and neck injuries, fractures, soft tissue injuries and psychological injuries.

What to do after a car accident:

  • Make sure you write down the registration number of all vehicles involved.
  • Write down the names and contact phone numbers for all drivers involved.
  • Report the accident to the Police and ensure they provide you with a traffic incident number (QP Number).
  • If the car accident is not reported to the Police, CSG Law can do that for you.
  • See your General Practitioner or the local hospital to have your injuries assessed and for medical advice.
  • Talk to CSG Law for free initial advice about your legal rights to make a compensation claim for any personal injuries you have suffered.
  • Lodge the Notice of Accident Claim form with the Compulsory Third Party insurer (CTP insurer) within the strict time limits that apply.

It is important that you do not admit fault until you have obtained legal advice. If you have been injured and there was fault on the part of someone else for your injury, then you may have a claim for compensation. It is best to seek advice from an Injury Compensation Lawyer to assess whether or not you have a claim for compensation for your injuries.

Generally, you must bring a compensation claim within 3 years of the accident date. If you have not settled your claim with the Insurer or issued Court proceedings within 3 years of your date of injury/onset of condition, you will lose your legal right to compensation. The main exception to this rule is if the injured person is a child, in which case Court proceedings must be issued within 3 years of the child’s eighteenth birthday.

Before you can start any Court action, you must follow what is called pre-Court procedure steps. A Notice of Claim must be lodged with the person who caused your injury/condition either within 1 month of you first instructing a lawyer or 9 months from the date of your injury/onset of condition whichever comes first. If this is not done, you must then provide a reasonable excuse for delay.

Time limits are extremely important. If you think your claim may be outside these time frames contact us urgently.

You may be entitled to claim compensation if you suffer permanent injury caused by the negligence of your employer. An injury sustained at work, or traveling to and from work, can be a traumatic experience for an individual, especially if you have a family to support.

There are many fears that may arise from this situation, such as whether your employment may be terminated after reporting your injury or whether it is worth making a claim.

The law regulating compensation for work injuries is complicated, so it is important to speak with an Injury Compensation Lawyer as soon as possible after suffering a work injury.

If you are injured at work then as soon as practical, you should:

  • Report your injury to someone at work, eg. your manager or supervisor
  • Establish if there are any witnesses to your injury
  • See a registered medical practitioner (you will need to ask for a Workers’ Compensation Medical Certificate)
  • Contact CSG Law for free initial advice about your compensation alternatives

Generally, you must bring a compensation claim within 3 years of the accident date. If you have not settled your claim with the Insurer or issued Court proceedings within 3 years of your date of injury/onset of condition, you will lose your legal right to compensation. If the injury occurred over a period of time, then a complying Notice of Claim for Damages is to be provided as soon as practicable after the worker becomes aware of the injury.

Time limits are extremely important. If you think your claim may be outside these time frames, contact us urgently.

There are many different ways in which individuals can sustain a personal injury, other than in a motor vehicle accident or in the workplace. A few examples include:

  • Complications due to medical negligence
  • Slip, fall and trip accidents in private or public places
  • Injuries caused by defective or faulty products
  • Accidents at private residences, parks and playgrounds
  • Accidents at school
  • Boating accidents
  • Injuries while working as a contractor
  • Loss of financial support as a result of the death of another person

Most superannuation and some other insurance policies include benefits in the event the policyholder becomes sick or injured. In almost every case, you will need to be totally and permanently disabled (TPD) and unable to ever work. These policies may also include benefits for the family if the policyholder dies.

Many people do not realise that their superannuation policy might offer this kind of benefit for them. In the event that you have suffered a critical injury which renders you unable to work at all, you may be entitled to a payout from your insurer.

A total and permanent disability claim is a lump sum payment that is made against your superannuation insurance. This type of insurance provides for a lump sum payment if you can prove that you are unable to do your normal job or any other kind of employment related to your training and experience. This does not mean you have to be unfit for all work, only the work that fits your skills and experience.

By way of example, you may be entitled to claim TPD if:

  • You work in the building industry
  • Over the years you have developed a chronic back pain condition
  • This prevents you from continuing in your normal employment
  • Your Doctor says you can still do light duties e.g. as a school bus driver

You can make a claim if:

  • You were working and your employer was paying compulsory superannuation
  • You suffer any illness or injury preventing you from working for 6 consecutive months
  • You have entered into a private contract with an insurance provider for income protection or disability insurance
  • You are under 60 or 65 years of age (depending on the terms of your insurance policy)

For TPD benefits, you need to lodge the claim form provided by your superannuation policy insurer, as well as the relevant documents you need to prove your claim. This can include medical information concerning your accident injuries or medical condition, relevant income records, and written submissions.

This may not be the ONLY information that it is required. It is very important that you seek the advice of an injury compensation lawyer to assist with your claim.

It does not matter how your injury or illness occurred. You can still claim superannuation benefits if you suffered any illness or if an injury was caused by a motor vehicle, work-related or other accident.

Some common disabilities include a heart attack, cancer, mental illness, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue syndrome or injuries at home. The main requirement is that your medical condition or injury prevents you from working in your normal employment.

It is important to speak with an injury compensation lawyer for advice on your legal right to compensation. If you had a pre-existing injury or sickness before you joined the superannuation fund, you are generally entitled to claim, but there may be exceptions, depending on the terms of your policy.

Some insurance providers may have clauses that limit the policy if there is a pre-existing injury or sickness particularly if you have not disclosed that medical issue to the insurer at the time of taking out the policy.

Generally, a TPD claim can be lodged in addition to other compensation claims, for example, motor accident, and work-related claims. However, there are exceptions and we recommended that you speak to an injury compensation lawyer before lodging a TPD claim.

Contact us if you need to lodge a TPD claim on your superannuation as strict time limits apply.
