Compensation Law in NSW
Imagine if you suffer a severe injury while completing the tasks of your job. Imagine now that the injury makes you unable to work for anywhere from one week to one year. What happens then? How do you pay your bills? How do you pay your rent? How do you get by from week to week?
Situations like these sometimes require that you hire someone to fight on your behalf so that you receive the compensation you deserve.
Compensation Law in NSW
Compensation law in NSW is practiced by numerous law firms, and it is practiced through the Local Court system. Additional information about the practice of compensation law in New South Wales is offered below:
- Primary NSW Court: Local Court, 160 Branches
- Compensation Covered: Asbestos, Motor Vehicle, Workplace
- Compensation Covered: Defective Product, Public Place
- Compensation Covered: Superannuation, TPD, Life Insurance
Introducing Compensation Lawyers in NSW
Compensation lawyers in New South Wales are lawyers who work hard on a plaintiff’s behalf (yours) to seek compensation from a defendant. The defendant could be one of several types of individuals:
- An uninsured employer who refuses to pay for an injury you sustained at work.
- A driver who refuses to pay for damage incurred during a crash he/she caused.
- A building owner who refuses to pay for maintaining a hazardous space.
- A medical professional who refuses to pay for providing poor services.
There are many more types of compensation cases, but the premise is that a party acts negligently, thus causing you to suffer personal injury. The compensation lawyer takes up your case for the purpose of ensuring you receive the maximum entitlements owed to you. They do this by first proving that you deserve compensation, and then by negotiating a fair and equitable compensation settlement rate.
What to Look For in a Compensation Firm
It is important to not just choose any random compensation law firm. It is better instead to carefully review several firms to compare and contrast their pros and cons:
- Qualifications: Are the lawyers at the firm trained in your particular type of compensation? Some compensation firms specialize in certain forms of compensation. Ideally, you want to choose a law firm that specializes in the type of compensation you need.
- Clients: Does the firm have a solid track record? How many clients has it served? Do they have positive or negative things to say about the firm?
- Fees: Are the firm’s fees fair? Or would they eat up too much of the compensation you are trying to receive?
Deciding Whether to Hire a Firm
Compensation lawyers are sometimes required. They become a requirement when an entity refuses to admit negligence. In this sort of scenario, you the plaintiff become responsible for proving that the other party, the defendant, is indeed negligible, and should therefore be held accountable for the injuries you sustained. It is for these sorts of scenarios that a compensation lawyer might be needed.
