Personal Injury Law: Claiming

What Makes a Successful Personal Injury Claim?

If you believe you’re entitled to a public liability claim, you should build your case and consult Brisbane personal injury lawyers as soon as possible. The following are some of the best ways to strengthen your case and increase your chances of making a successful public liability claim:

  • See a doctor as soon as possible – Have a qualified doctor or medical professional assess your injury and evaluate the severity of your condition. Make sure to keep all records and receipts of any medical consultations or treatment for your injury.
  • Take photos – Take photographs of your injury, the site where the accident or event took place and any other important factors that could serve as evidence of your injury.
  • Record any evidence of lost wages because of injury – If your injury resulted in lost wages or lost opportunities for making an income, ensure that you take note of these events and keep track of them.
  • Gather relevant witnesses (if any) – Gather as many witnesses as possible to strengthen your case and provide another perspective to the series of events that transpired.
  • Keep records of all expenses incurred because of your injury – Record all transactions, costs and expenses you have had since the onset of your injury. This includes any expenses, medical and personal, that were caused by your injury.
  • Keep track of communications – Record all correspondence with all affected parties in your case, including the responsible authority of the public space, medical professionals and any third-parties.
  • Consult with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible – There are time limits as to when you can make a claim for public liability, and there are time periods in place for when you can lodge a claim for personal injury. The sooner you lodge a claim and process your case, the better.
