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:
In most surgical error cases, it’s relatively straightforward to establish whether there is a claim. We need to show that the treatment fell below the requisite standard of care, and the surgical error was a preventable complication or there were errors or outcomes beyond the known inherent risks of the surgery.
If your surgical treatment fell below the requisite standard of care and nerves or vascular structures have been damaged during surgery, then you might be entitled to compensation.
If you've suffered an injury or illness because surgical equipment was left inside you during surgery, then it's very likely you can claim compensation.
If your surgical treatment fell below the requisite standard of care and surrounding tissue or organs have been damaged during surgery, then you might be entitled to compensation.

Frequently asked questions.
Can I claim compensation?
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.
What can I claim for?
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.

How long will my claim take?
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
