What is a Personal Injury Lawyer?
Wikipedia describes a personal injury lawyer as
… A lawyer who provides legal representation to those who claim to have been injured, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Thus, personal injury lawyers tend to be especially knowledgeable and have more experience with regard to the area of law known as tort law, which includes civil wrongs and economic or non-economic damages to a person’s property, reputation, or rights.”
It is because of this specialist knowledge that if you experience personal injury because of the negligence of either another person, your employer, or an organisation which is is providing you with goods and services, a compensation lawyer or personal injury lawyer is your best option for legal representation.
Many people make the mistake of thinking that all lawyers are the same and are totally unaware that just as medical specialists specialise in their own areas, so do lawyers. For this reason, while your local solicitor who helped you with the purchase of your house may be happy to take on your case, it is unlikely that they will have knowledge or experience in the area of compensation law.
In Australia, while comcare is the Commonwealth government area that oversees personal injury and compensation claims, each state in Australia also has its own authorities which your compensation lawyer will need to have experience in dealing with.
If you have sustained a personal injury, it can be a very traumatic time because of issues associated with incapacity, pain, loss of income and subsequent break down of relationships. For this reason it is important that your compensation lawyers are experienced, sensitive and equipped to be an effective advocate for you and confident in their ability to secure your workplace compensation or accident compensation.
