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.

Here’s what they say about us.

Law Partners have been a great firm to deal with. The process and communication was excellent from the beginning as well as a great outcome in the end. I would definitely recommend them with a special thanks to Kiran and the entire team.

Sophie Cook was fantastic to speak to and the best first impression I could have asked for. Thorough, empathetic and informative about my options and entitlements. Sophie made me feel positive about my matter when I thought my situation was not good.

Thanks again Sophie.

When my husbands old TPD lawyer said she couldn’t help us anymore and closed our claim, Shane Butcher and Mark Saunders took on his claim and got my husband the money he was entitled to. Law Partners helped us through one of the most difficult times in our lives and we are very grateful.

I highly recommend Law Partners because this law firm is the best of what they do. I am grateful and blessed to have found such a compassionate, helpful, attentive, reliable, timely and kind lawyers in this firm. Shifa and her team were very thorough, competent, efficient, and listens to understand. Shifa made my life better as she is able to expedite everything from the time she took my case & settled it in less than 2 months because she understand the kind of personality I have as a person & in my professional career whereas I always want everything done efficiently in the quickest time possible without leaving any stones unturned. She responds to my emails almost a few minutes after receiving it, she kept me informed & she made sure we are always on the same page. I may not get my life back pre-injury but she worked hard behind the scene to ensure I am well compensated. It’s quite rare to find lawyers nowadays that got your back 100% without much incentives. I involved Law Partners in mid August and have my case settled in mid October which is a testament to their efficiency & commitment to their clients! I can’t thank Shifa enough & her paralegal Xanthe for everything they did for me. Forever grateful!

Jason was very helpful on our initial call, very caring and clear about the process.

Natalia Gonzalez gave Law Partners a
review on Google

Very satisfied with the outcome of my claim. Gillian, Melissa and all staff I dealt during my case were professional and caring and did an amazing job dealing with an insurance company to get me a fair compensation payout. So glad I chose Law Partners as otherwise, I would have given up in frustration and not been compensated for time lost at work due to someone else’s negligence. Recommend them highly.

Jacquilyne Trimnell gave Law Partners a

I was reluctant at first to put a claim in but I contacted Law Partners and was called back by Elyse to have a chat. From that moment on, Elyse, Brooke & Sarah have been brilliant. They have answered all my questions straight away, explained everything in detail, given me all the different options available and in the end, resolved my matter with a positive outcome. It has been a very pleasant experience working with them and I would gladly recommend Law Partners, Elyse and her team. Thank you!

Antonela was accommodating, reassuring and simply just kind and considerate. She made me feel as if I was making the right decision by moving forward and contacting them for help. I can’t thank you enough.

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
