Personal Injuries / Compensation Law

Based on the Gold Coast, our compensation lawyers at Evolve Legal can assist you with your personal injury claim for compensation or your insurance claims.

Injuries can turn your life upside down. If someone has caused your accident, or was at fault, or negligent, then you may be entitled to injury compensation.

Personal injury law is complicated. It is a road you can take on your own. But without comprehensive legal knowledge or a lawyer by your side, it can be difficult to navigate your way through the personal injury system. You could get lost along the way, you may end up at a dead end, there could be road blocks or you might even be pointed in the wrong direction.

If you need to embark on a personal injury claim, our compensation lawyers can be your pit crew for your journey. We can navigate you through the personal injury claims process. Our law firm can provide you with the technical legal support so you can focus on getting better and back on your feet. We can guide you so you reach the end of the journey in as best shape as possible.

No Win No Fee Cost Agreement

Many people, particularly when they are entitled to compensation, cannot afford to pay for a lawyer or for experts to provide medical reports and other evidence. To improve access to justice, we offer No Win No Fee cost arrangements.

This means that our Personal Injury Lawyers Gold Coast do not get you a compensation pay out for your personal injury claims, then you don’t need to pay our legal fees. Therefore, you can obtain legal advice without the worry of trying to pay for it while you are recovering from your accident, injury or illness.

Have a no obligation consultation with our No Win No Fee lawyers to find out if you have a valid claim for compensation.

Evolve Legal - Workplace Injuries

Workplace Injuries

Everyone hopes to make it through the work day safely and arrive home in one piece. However, sometimes an injury can disrupt worker’s lives and send them on a compensation journey.

A Queensland workers compensation claim assists workers who are injured at work, travelling between home and work, or on a break at work.

The workers compensation Statutory Claims scheme is designed to help workers get back to work by providing rehabilitation and weekly benefits.

If an employer is negligent or has breached their duty of care to a worker, then the worker may also be able to bring a claim for common law damages.

A Damages claim is designed to provide a sum of money to the worker to place them back in the position they should have been had the incident not occurred. This can include sums for pain and suffering, loss of income or earning capacity, medical treatments and rehabilitation needs.

A court will assess a claim based on the evidence, expert reports and legal submissions.

There are strict time limits to apply for a Statutory Claim and for Common Law damages. If you miss the dead line then you may lose your entitlement to make a claim. It is important to get prompt advice to protect your entitlements.

Motor Vehicle Accidents Claims

We all hope that everyone on the road will drive carefully and avoid collisions. However, when a car accident happens your life can be turned upside down.

In Queensland, if you did not cause the accident, you can lodge a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the driver at fault.

The CTP insurer has an obligation to fund reasonable rehabilitation to help you recover.

They are also obliged to pay damages.

A damages claim is designed to provide a sum of money to the injured road user to place them back in the position they should have been in, if the incident had not occurred. This can include sums for pain and suffering, loss of income or earning capacity, medical treatments and rehabilitation needs.

A court will assess a claim based on the evidence, expert reports and legal submissions.

There are strict time limits to notify the police of the accident, lodge a Notice of Accident Claim form and commence proceedings in court. If you miss the dead line then you may lose your entitlement to make a claim. It is important to get prompt advice to protect your entitlements.

Evolve Legal - Public Liability Claims

Public Liability Claims

If a person or a company (other than your employer) is negligent or has breached their duty of care, then the injured person may seek damages through the public liability regime. In Queensland, the claim is made under the Personal Injuries Proceedings Act.

You may also have rights under the Australian Consumer Law for defective goods or services that were not fit for their purpose.

A damages claim is designed to provide a sum of money to the injured person to place them back in the position they should have been in, if the incident had not occurred.

This can include sums for:

  • Pain and suffering,
  • Loss of income or earning capacity,
  • Medical treatments and rehabilitation needs
  • Care and assistance
  • Legal costs

A court will determine if there was negligence and the amount of damages after considering the evidence, expert reports and legal submissions.

There are strict time limits lodge a Notice of Claim form and commence proceedings in court. If you miss the dead line then you may lose your entitlement to make a claim. It is important to get prompt advice to protect your entitlements.

Aviation Injuries

If you were a passenger on a commercial flight, and you were injured on the plane or getting on or off the plane, then you may be entitled to damages from the airline.    You do not need to prove that the airline was negligent, only that the incident was unexpected, untoward and external to you.

A damages claim is designed to provide a sum of money to the injured person to place them back in the position they should have been in, if the incident had not occurred.   This can include sums for pain and suffering, loss of income or earning capacity, medical treatments and rehabilitation needs.

A court will assess a claim based on the evidence, expert reports and legal submissions.

There are strict time limits to file a claim in court for this type of injury. The process is different to a public liability or work injury claim and you have even less time to bring an action. A claim must be filed in the courts within 2 years of the injury and it cannot be extended. Prompt assistance of a lawyer is vital so you do not risk losing entitlement to your claim.

Evolve Legal - Aviation Injuries

Life, TPD and Income Protection Claims

If you are sick or injured you may also be entitled to receive an insurance payout from Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance or income protection insurance. Many people have these insurances without realising it. For example, these insurances may be included in your superannuation policies. You do not even need to provide that your illness or injury was caused by someone else to bring a claim under these insurances. Our injury lawyers can assist you to investigate whether you have an insurance policy and help lodge your claim.

Why Choose Us?

LOW FILE NUMBERS LOW FILE NUMBERS

Some firms try to increase their profits by having their lawyers carry a large number of files. We don’t. We deliberately keep our lawyers on low and manageable file numbers. This means that our lawyers have more time for you. They have more time to spend on your claim and gathering evidence to tell your story. This usually means your claim can be resolved sooner – so you can get on with your life and put the claim process behind you.

WE ARE STORY TELLERS WE ARE STORY TELLERS

Telling stories is at the heart of what we do. We tell YOUR story. A good lawyer knows the law well, but a great lawyer will be able to convey the story behind the facts. Our training, systems and processes are specifically designed to develop your story and communicate it to the other side. We don’t just tell the other side the facts about what happened in a clinical fashion. We get them to know you – how the accident impacted you – your work – your family – your hopes, dreams and aspirations. We help the insurer get a better understanding of why they ought to assist you with a compensation payment. We want the insurer to be engaged with your story and use techniques to encourage that engagement.

WE HAVE AN APP! WE HAVE AN APP!

We pride ourselves on innovation. We have a purpose built app to help you keep track of the progress of your personal injury claim, keep records and communicate with us.

WE DO NOT CHARGE AN UPLIFT ON TOP OF OUR FEES WE DO NOT CHARGE AN UPLIFT ON TOP OF OUR FEES

Unlike some other law firms who act for injured people, we do not charge an extra “uplift” on our fees. When speaking to law firms, you should check if they intend to charge an uplift on their fees. We don’t. What we charge is clear at the start of your claim. So you don’t have to worry if the fees are going to jump by up to 25% due to an “uplift”.

WE GET AN EXTERNAL AND INDEPENDENT EXPERT TO ASSESS OUR FEES WE GET AN EXTERNAL AND INDEPENDENT EXPERT TO ASSESS OUR FEES

The fees charged by personal injury firms should be fair. We provide you with extra reassurance that our fees are fair and properly charged in accordance with our cost agreement. We get an external organisation who specialises in assessing legal fees to review our file and determine what fees can be charged. We are also flexible. You can chose not to have our fees assessed by an external cost assessor if you don’t want us to engage them on your behalf.
