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:

Negligent treatment is when an injury, illness or worsening of a condition has occurred as a result of medical treatment that was below the expected standard of care. If you’ve suffered medical problems or losses due to negligent treatment, it’s likely you can sue your doctor for medical negligence and claim compensation.

This usually involves actions or inactions that lead to delays in administration of appropriate and timely treatment, or administration of incorrect treatment or no treatment at all. If you believe that you’re a victim of medical negligence as a result of misdiagnosis or a delay in diagnosis, you may be entitled to damages.

If birth injuries or defects could have been prevented by the treating medical practitioner by exercising reasonable skill and care, then you may be able to make a medical negligence claim. We’ll help you claim everything you’re entitled to.

To determine whether you can sue your plastic or cosmetic surgeon, we need to first determine whether the surgeon breached their duty of care. If your cosmetic or plastic surgery has gone wrong, our specialist medical negligence solicitors can review your situation and advise you on whether you have a strong claim.

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank Law Partners for their services. The outcome was excellent and right from the first meeting to the last, Law Partners made the whole process feel seamless and effortless! I was pretty uncertain at first choosing a lawyer but so glad I chose Law Partners.

My husband and I spoke with James David. He patiently listened to our situation and was very understanding, asked the right questions and gave us various options to consider.

Thankfully, with James’ advice and support I was able to come to a financial settlement with the concerned party without the need to pursue it legally.

James still supported us through that process even though we hadn’t formally engaged Law Partners.

James was very responsive the whole time and communicated clearly and empathetically. I wouldn’t hesitate engaging James in future should the need arise and would recommend Law Partners. If you think you have a claim it’s certainly worth giving them a call.

Law Partners are the best. Throughout, Tanja Maksimovic, and team Jessica Terre, and Sarah Starnovsky, were clear they knew how to get the best outcome for me, and I was confident in them without hesitation. This was about compensation for injuries in an MVA. My heartfelt thanks. I recommend them 100%.

Renata Dubois gave Law Partners a
review on Google

I was shocked when my initial assessment came back as minor but I was too overwhelmed at the time to dispute it. Something in my gut told me to get a second opinion and I’m so relieved I did. I almost missed out of a lump sum payment which has helped so much with my recovery.

Mark Agar gave Law Partners a
review on Google

I moved from another firm to Law Partners and right from the start it was a totally different experience. My solicitor Sarah King and her paralegal Cassandra Hughes were empathetic, encouraging and highly attentive.
I received regular updates, they sought to clarify issues as they arose,
They prepared for each new step and checked in with me after each new event in the process.
They turned a scary experience into an ok experience with a positive outcome.
I cannot recommend them enough.
Thank you thank you.

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
