Compensation Awards

Our South Australian car accident solicitors specialise in claiming compensation for personal injury sustained in a motor accident. We operate using the no win no charge scheme. We are able to obtain awards of compensation in several categories and to recover interest on the damages that are awarded thereby precluding any delays in settlement by insurers :-

  • Special Damages represents compensation for losses that can be calculated with a degree of accuracy and includes past and future loss of wages and the cost of long term care for those who suffer serious disability.

  • General Damages represents compensation for losses that cannot be calculated and must be assessed by a judge which includes damages paid for pain and suffering and for the loss of previous lifestyle.

Evidence Preservation

The prospect of success or failure of a compensation claim for personal injury in South Australian depends on the quality of the evidence. In order to succeed in a personal injury compensation claim in South Australia it is necessary to prove that the 3rd party driver, against whom the claim is being made, acted negligently and that this negligence was the direct cause of the injury sustained. Negligence may be described as conduct which falls below the standard of a reasonably competent driver. It is therefore advisable to keep full and complete records including events leading up to the incident and also the consequences of the accident and injury. Ensure that you record the personal details of all parties involved including potential witnesses and if possible take location and damage photographs and preserve all estimates and invoices relating to damaged items.
