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.

After an injury that totally removed me from the workforce my future was bleak. I approached several Law companies receiving very little guidance, then I found Law Partners. With my settlement I keep my home and possessions and family intact. I also have good friends for life in the team at Law Partners.

Just had my first phone call, and so far feel relieved. Matthew who took my initial inquiry was empathetic and professional and Antonela who discussed my potential case was professional, courteous and warm. It made me feel like someone was on my side and I wasn’t alone. I wish I’d called sooner.

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.

My family and I would like to thank the Law Partners team for their valuable support during a difficult time for us. They were always willing to help and kept us updated throughout the whole claims process. We couldn’t have achieved such a great outcome without Law Partners on our side.

Thanks so much to the Law Partners team getting me a very favourable result and a lot more than I expected!

I’m writing to express my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude for your highly professional and incredibly competent services.
The help, support and guidance I’ve had from Angy Basal has been second to none! Not only has my injury claim taken place whilst I had to move back overseas, but it was negotiated and mediated seamlessly though-out, even being in complete opposite time zones! Making the seemingly impossible, possible..I will forever be grateful for your determination and kindness, thank you so much Angy!

I had a great experience with Law Partners, Yasmine and Mimi are very helpful and understanding. They are both wonderful ladies who are very friendly, supportive and looked after me very well which made everything much more smoother to deal with through the tough times.

I really do appreciate all help and support I got from them. Highly recommended

From my very first meeting with Natalie I felt comfortable, supported and heard. This was very important to me after what I had been through. Natalie spoke in terms that were easy for me to understand.
The whole process was smooth and made easier for me knowing I had Natalie’s support. I was pleased with outcome.
Thank you to Natalie and her team for making this episode in my life easier to navigate than I had thought it would be.
Julie.

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
