The Three Main Things That Determine Work and Car Accident Compensation and Public Liability Claims

Work injury compensation can really vary depending on where your work injury took place.

SYDNEY, NSW (I-Newswire) January 23, 2014 - Work injury compensation can really vary depending on where your work injury took place. In fact there are 3 main factors to be considered when work injury compensation is determined. These reasons are:-

* Different Laws across States and Territories in Australia
* How serious an injury is and whether or not it is a permanent work injury
* Who is to blame for the accident

Which Australian State or Territory Law applies?

There are different laws across Australia and this makes it hard to determine the amount of work injury compensation an individual will receive. While there are work compensation benefits Australia wide, it is the actual entitlements that vary considerably. Some States have thresholds for common law claims which means in one State an injury has to have an impairment of 15% which is quite a serious injury. In another State an injury doesn't need to be as severe with an impairment of 1%.

How serious in your injury?

If your injury is permanent you may have entitlements to a lump sum payment. It is very important not to accept an offer of a lump sum payment until you have spoken to an injury helpline who will connect you with a professional personal injury lawyer. A lawyer of a law firm may or may not advise you to accept the offer based on it being a reasonable amount.

Who was to blame for the legal injury?

Do you think your injury or accident could have been prevented? If so your injury may have happened due to 'negligence'. The word negligence has a similar meaning to carelessness and comes from a Latin word which means 'to neglect'. Negligence can be difficult to determine as there are so many variables that need to be considered. Another way to describe negligence is "conduct that falls below the standards of behaviour established by law for the protection of others against unreasonable risk of harm. Hence negligence involves doing or failing to do something that a reasonable person would or would not do in a certain situation.

Even if you don't think the injury could have been prevented you still need to get free legal advice by a legal injury expert. Negligence can only be determined by personal injury lawyers so it is important to contact an injury helpline regarding work injury compensation and also regarding car accident compensation and public liability claims if you suffer a legal injury on the road or in a public place.

When there is an accident and injuries have been sustained the cause of injury will need to be investigated and reviewed. If the injury could have been prevented an employer or driver may be deemed negligent and their insurance company need to be notified. The same rule applies for car accident compensation and public liability claims it is important to get legal advice from a personal injury lawyers to establish your rights to claim. Work injury compensation lawyers are often no win no fee lawyers who take you claim on a no win no fee basis.
