Types of personal injury compensation
If you have been injured at work or on the road, immediate help is available through WorkCover and the TAC. These benefits are available to everyone, regardless of who was at fault, and can ease your financial burden and help you focus on recovery.
Redlich’s can assist you to understand the schemes and the support you can get, such as payment for loss of earnings and medical bills, medications, personal assistance, or even house modifications.
You may also be entitled to a lump sum payment if you suffer a permanent impairment.
Suing for further compensation
You may also be able to sue for lump sum ‘damages’ for income loss as well as for your pain and suffering.
We can help you bring this ‘common law claim’ if it can be proven that your injury was caused by the negligence of another person and you meet the required injury threshold test.
Our expert injury lawyers have successfully negotiated settlements and run cases to verdict in all Victorian courts.
Your Injury occurred…
The WorkCover scheme assists people who suffer injury or illness through work. You are covered by the scheme regardless of who was at fault.
On the road
The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) compensation scheme assists people injured by a motor vehicle, tram or train in Victoria or involving a Victorian resident and a Victorian vehicle whilst interstate.
The scheme helps all Victorians injured in transport accidents, regardless of fault.
Through the negligence of another
If you have been injured in other circumstances, such as in a public or private place, and through another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to lump sum compensation.
Our lawyers can…
Help negotiate fair compensation
Having a lawyer by your side who specialises in personal injury claims and negotiating with insurance companies, ensures that you receive a fair amount of compensation. We will advise you on making a claim, the evidence required and the expected settlement sum. If necessary, our lawyers can take your case to court with expert representation.
Ensure the majority of compensation goes to you
We offer a ‘No Win, No Fee’ service.
At Redlich’s Work Injury Lawyers, we offer competitive professional fees and work hard to recover all the expenses including medical report fees, barrister fees, and court fees from the defendant or insurer.
We do not charge an uplift fee.
Unlike most ‘No Win, No Fee’ firms, we will not ask you to pay any uplift fees on top of the legal fees you pay if you win your case. We aim to keep our costs low so you can receive the financial outcome you deserve.
