Injury & Compensation

Often our injuries are not the result of our own actions. Medical negligence, faulty products, unsafe work conditions, and poor judgement from others can all lead to life-changing injuries, and those responsible should be held accountable.

Living with an injury is tough. Not just because of the physical pain, but because of the emotional and financial stress it puts on you and your loved ones.

Our Injury & Compensation Team have run some of the largest injury personal injury compensation cases and are well equipped to fight for what you deserve. While receiving compensation cannot change the past, it can be a crucial first step to help you get back on track.

Medical Negligence

Doctors do not always get it right, and when they get it wrong it can have permanent and expensive consequences. Even a simple check-up when performed inadequately could leave you in a position where you are entitled to compensation.

When a doctor’s treatment of a patient falls below the expected level of reasonable care, skill and diligence, this amounts to medical negligence. Examples of this is failing to:

  • Properly diagnose a condition;
  • Prescribe proper medication;
  • Refer you to an appropriate specialist;
  • Warn you of the risks involved in a treatment plan; or
  • Carry out a procedure with a proper level of skill and care.

The world of medical negligence is complex, time consuming, and can seem daunting to the untrained eye. That is why we at Chamberlains tailor our strategy to suit your individual needs, to help deliver the best results as quickly as possible.

Product Liability

We never expect the products we buy day in and day out to be faulty. From the cars we drive to the food we eat; manufacturer defects have the potential to cause permanent physical injury, serious illness and even death.

If you’ve been injured by a faulty product, you may be entitled to compensation if the manufacturer was negligent in creating the faulty product.

This area of law often involves a complex mix of legislation and common law, and you need an expert to help navigate you to the best solution. At Chamberlains, we are diligent, hard-working and have the experience to help you properly manage your claim.

Institutional Abuse Claims

Being the victim of institutional abuse is a traumatic experience not many people will ever be able to understand. It can make you feel traumatized, baffled and powerless. A lawyer can help you by standing with you throughout the process of bringing a claim.

At Chamberlains, we offer a supportive and understanding environment to help you feel empowered and in charge of the situation. We will assist you in finding a suitable compensation for your traumatic experience.

Most of the time compensation usually involves money, but can also be an apology or admission of guilt. The latter being something that usually helps providing closure to victims in a way money just cannot.

Income Protection Dispute

When you are injured, worrying about money should be the last thing on your mind. However, all too often, financial struggles become a focal point in your life when injury prevents you from working.

Nobody enjoys handing out money, and Insurance Companies are no exception. When it comes time to pay up, several issues can pop up seemingly out of nowhere that may prevent you from receiving what you are entitled to.

Our dedicated team is here to do all the hard work, and help you sort through these issues so you can focus on your recovery rather than financials.

Public Liability

Accidents such as slips, trips, and falls can happen to us at any time, and in some cases, can lead to costly trips to the doctors or serious injuries which may affect your life dramatically.

Everyone should expect to be safe when in a public or private space. However, if you do injure yourself, you may be entitled to compensation benefits including: present & future medical bills, medical aids & equipment, pain & suffering, and lost wages.

Common claim examples include:

  • Injuries on public or private property (slips, trips & falls)
  • Unsafe premises (such as balconies, stairs, surfaces)
  • Injuries while at recreational facilities
  • Animal attacks
  • Physical assaults
  • Sporting injuries
