Why its a good idea to get legal advice before Conciliation

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

I was recently asked to give a presentation to the Accident Compensation Conciliation Service and be part of a Panel discussing the role of lawyers in the Conciliation process. In my presentation I said that it was my opinion, that the sooner someone gets legal advice about their rights and entitlements, the better, and that in my view, the fact that many workers are now getting legal advice before Conciliation, is a good thing, especially for the workers. Generally speaking, this is because it is always better to get advice while the events surrounding an injury are fresh in the mind and while relevant witnesses can be contacted. The particular benefit of getting legal advice before Conciliation, is that people are simply much better equipped to make important decisions about their claim, after they have had a good long discussion with a lawyer about all of their possible rights and entitlements.

Sleeplessness and Serious Injury

Tuesday, February 02, 2016

"I am so tired I can't concentrate" "I am irritable all the time because I wake several times at night because of my injury". These are common complaints I hear from clients who have serious injuries.  Sleeplessness caused by injuries is a relevant factor to consider when assessing whether an injury passes the serious injury test in work injury and transport accident cases in Victoria.

Claiming compensation when you slip, trip or fall

Monday, December 07, 2015

If you slip, trip or fall and suffer an injury in a public or private place and it is some one else's fault, you may be able to claim common law damages for the economic loss you experience, such as loss of wages and medical expenses. To claim common law damages for the  pain and suffering you have and will experience, you must be able to prove not only that you were injured as a result of some one else's negligence, you must also have a "significant injury." A "significant injury" is a Whole Person Impairment of 5% or more for spinal injuries, 6 % or more for physical injuries other than spinal injuries and 10% or more for Psychiatric injuries. Whole Person Impairment is assessed under the Americal Medical Association Guides, 4th edition. For adults in Victoria, there is generally a three year time limit within which to make a common law claim of this kind. To find out how the time limit applies in a particular case it is important to get legal advice as soon as possible. Another reason for getting legal advice as soon as possible is to document what happened at an early stage while events are fresh in your mind and so that you know what your rights are from the start. If you have suffered an injury as a result of a slip, trip or fall and you would like to know if you have an entitlement to common law damages call us on 9775 1371 or email Penny at: penny@peninsulainjurylawyers.com.au.The first appointment is free and without obligation and you can talk to us about our no-win no-fee cost arrangement.

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

One death at work is too many deaths, but in the last nine days WorkSafe has reported that five workers in Victoria have tragically died at the workplace causing devastation and untold pain to their loved ones. These deaths include a 64 year old contractor who was killed in an explosion at a housing development site at Harkaway, a 76 year old man crushed by a tractor at Loch, the electrocution of a a 25 year old electrician in Braeside, a 29 year old killed in Keysborough when a piece of equipment fell off a forklift crushing him and a 76 year old farm worker electrocuted while working on a pump in Anakie. News of so many horrific incidents occuring in so short a time frame, in Victoria alone, is alarming.
