FAQ: Personal injury law

Click below to find an answer to these frequently asked questions.

What is a personal injury lawyer?

A personal injury lawyer is a solicitor or barrister who represents people who have been physically or psychologically injured at work, in a motor vehicle accident, or due to the actions of another person, entity or organisation. For example, due to negligence or malpractice. As such, they help people to recover compensation for the losses experienced as a result of the injury.

How do you calculate the loss of earnings for personal injury?

To determine any loss of earnings you may have experienced due to personal injury, you can look at both your average earnings and future career intentions before the injury and compare this to your actual and projected earnings following the injury. The difference is your likely overall loss in earnings.

Can you sue for personal injury?

If you believe you were physically or mentally harmed due to someone else’s negligence or malpractice, you may be able to seek compensation to help you back on your feet. An experienced personal injury lawyer can review your case and prepare a strategy to get you the best outcome. 

How are personal injury claims calculated?

The compensation in personal injury cases can vary greatly, however, the goal is to restore the level of financial security you had before the injury. This can depend on a few different factors. The court usually considers what your circumstances and future prospects (e.g. lifestyle and income) before the incident were. 

Next, they look at how the incident may have impacted your life and your ability to earn a living since. From that, they draw a conclusion about your future income prospects and how the incident may have impacted those. 

Depending on the type of claim, the court may also use a similar “before and after” comparison to assess damages for pain and suffering.

How do I find a reputable personal injury lawyer?

Personal injury law is a highly specialised field, so it’s important to have the right legal representation when you’ve been involved in a situation that resulted in physical or psychological injury. Here are few tips for finding the right lawyer for your case:

  • Do your research and always read the reviews
  • Check their experience, education and whether they have specialist accreditation
  • Make sure they’re with you every step of the way, so your case won’t be handed off to someone else after you jump on board
  • Talk fees and payment terms before you sign on the dotted line. Preferably find a lawyer who works on a “no win, no fee” basis.
