A specialist lawyer will review your circumstances and tell you how much you can claim.

What can I claim?

It’s hard enough to cope with an unexpected injury – you shouldn’t have to deal with financial pain too. Depending on your injuries, you may be entitled to payments for lost income, medical expenses, travel expenses, domestic assistance, pain and suffering, permanent impairment, and future losses. Call us for free advice on how much you can claim.

Common claims include:

Examples of situations and injuries that can lead to compensation claims:

  • Failure to diagnose or manage gestational diabetes resulting in complications.
  • Pre-eclampsia or eclampsia.
  • Broken bones and extensive bruising as a result of childbirth.
  • Uterine ruptures.
  • Vaginal and anal fissures and fistulas.
  • Vaginal and anal tears or lacerations as a result of birth assisting tools, including failed episiotomies and failure to diagnose and correctly repair episiotomies or vaginal tears or lacerations.
  • Urinary catheter complications.
  • Anaesthetic complications.

Examples of errors that can lead to compensation claims:

  • Not detecting, diagnosing or treating maternal infections.
  • Improperly monitoring the baby’s wellbeing during labour to ascertain whether the baby is in distress. This is usually done through regular monitoring of the foetal heartbeat.
  • Not acting in a timely manner. For example, failing to schedule and perform an urgent Caesarean delivery.
  • Not administering the correct medication or administering the wrong type or amount of medication to the mother during the pregnancy, labour and delivery.
  • Using or incorrectly using birth assisting tools, such as forceps or a vacuum, without the mother’s consent and without prior discussion of risks associated with birth assisting tools.
  • Incorrectly or improperly pulling or twisting the baby during labour and the delivery process.
  • Not reviewing pre-delivery radiological imaging and failing to take steps to prevent a difficult birth.
  • Not detecting problems with the umbilical cord, such as a prolapsed umbilical cord.
  • Not monitoring the size of the baby in proportion to the birth canal and the size of the mother.
  • Failing to ascertain the positioning of the baby before labour and delivery.

Very satisfied with the outcome of my claim. Gillian, Melissa and all staff I dealt with during my case were professional and caring and did an amazing job dealing with an insurance company to get my compensation payout. So glad I chose Law Partners.

I lodged a complaint about bullying in the workplace. 78 pages of incidents I recorded, was deemed no evidence of bullying after investigations by the Insurance company. What a blessing for me to find Bianca Azzopardi to appeal the decision. Her professionalism, her fight for justice for me. With her help, the case is won. I sustained personal injury as a result of bullying and at the Personal Injury Tribunal, my ex employer is deemed the party that is wrong and the Tribunal ordered them to pay for compensation.

It was a very stressful time for me, and Bianca handled my case very professional and in the best of my interest . I can communicate with her any time. She replied promptly. She gives clear instructions.
During that very ‘dark’ time, when my ex-employer and the Insurance Company for Worker’s Comp denied bullying, I cannot describe to you how it feels hearing Bianca’s caring and reassuring voice, to send her my file of complaint and she will look after me.

Thank you Bianca, thank you for walking this journey with me.
I highly recommend Bianca.

The most professional and caring law firm that I have ever dealt with. Mr. Kiran Malai and his team have continuously proven to me that they actually genuinely cared about my case, which meant a lot to me. They have always provided me with professional and practical advice and answered all my questions in a simple way that I could understand. A highly recommended law firm. A big thank you to you, Mr. Malai and your excellent team members.

I can highly recommend Law Partners for Personal Injury Insurance. My lawyer Ivana Moconja worked endlessly on my very complicated case, she kept never gave up pushing my case forward with so much determination and persistency with both my insurance companies.

The communication was wonderful, Ivana kept me updated every step of the way with her progress and letting me know of how the case was going, she is great with her communication and was determined for a great outcome for me.

Without Ivana I would not have been able to deal with the 2 Insurance Companies, to win against the two insurance companies shows me or anybody else what a strong and brilliant lawyer she is.

From day one, I felt so comfortable communicating with her and knew I could trust her and believe she’d win my case.

Thank you Ivana for taking my case on, winning it, and making me feel I had a close bond with you throughout this. I truly value you, your help and will forever be thankful for helping me.

You’re truly an amazing lawyer!

Shanelle's story

Shanelle's story

I didn't choose to seek compensation, I needed to

When department manager and devoted mother Shanelle was refused surgery for her injury, she turned to us for help.

“It was the best decision I’ve ever made. It’s just good to know that there are people out there who actually care that I’m injured. And that’s what Law Partners is about – they care.”


Frequently asked questions.

If you’ve been injured in an accident and incurred any treatment costs or had any time off work to recover, you’re more than likely to be eligible to claim compensation. Or if you’re unable to work because of injury or illness, then you may be able to claim a lump sum payout though your super fund.

Depending on your injuries and how they happened, you may be able to claim compensation for lost income, medical expenses, travel expenses and home help. You may also be entitled to lump sum payments for pain and suffering, permanent impairment, or future losses.

  • We get to know you. We’ll get to know you personally, listen to your side of the story and give you free advice on your options.
  • We ask more questions. We’ll look beyond the obvious and see if your injuries have led to other complications, to claim everything you’re entitled to.
  • We build the evidence. Led by your lawyer, your dedicated team including hand-picked medical specialists will build strong evidence to maximise your claim.
  • We pursue your claim. We win over 99% of our cases and we’ll fight until you receive the compensation you’re entitled to and deserve.
  • You receive your compensation. Your compensation will be paid into your bank account.

Most personal injury claims settle within 9 to 18 months; however, some can take longer. The amount of time it takes to settle your claim is determined by:

  • How long it takes for your injuries to stabilise so that they can be assessed by medical experts
  • Whether the insurer accepts liability for your injuries
  • Whether we reach an agreed settlement with the insurer quickly
  • If we don’t reach a settlement with the insurer and need to litigate the matter, it can take longer than 18 months
