Pain and Suffering
Pain and suffering can be a difficult thing to handle, both legally and emotionally. It is important to understand the legal process involved in making a claim for pain and suffering in Australia so that you are prepared for what it involves.
In Australia, pain and suffering claims fall under the law of negligence or torts. In order to make a successful claim for pain and suffering, it must be established that the other party was negligent or careless in some way that led to your injury or illness. This means that the other party had an obligation to take reasonable care with their actions but failed to do so resulting in damages being suffered by you.
Examples of pain and suffering claims may include medical negligence, public liability, motor vehicle accidents and slip & fall. To be eligible for compensation in these types of cases, you must prove that the other party was negligent or careless and that this caused your injury or illness.
Loss of enjoyment of life and any care you needed while you were recovering can also be taken into consideration when making a pain and suffering claim. The amount of compensation you can receive for pain and suffering will depend on the severity of the injuries suffered, how long it took for you to recover, and whether there were any lasting effects from the injury or illness.
It is important to note that there are legal parameters when it comes to pain and suffering claims in Australia. Depending on the type of claim, different levels of damages may be awarded depending on the severity of the injury or illness suffered. The court will also take into account any financial losses you have incurred as a result of the injury or illness such as medical bills, lost wages and cost of rehabilitation.
When looking at a claim for pain and suffering a court will look at how severe the injury or illness is and how much it has impacted your life. They will also consider any medical expenses that have been incurred due to the injury or illness, as well as lost wages if you are no longer able to work. In some cases, the court may also award compensation for emotional pain and suffering caused by the incident.

After reading the Strategic lawyers bio, I was confident that I had found the team to represent me.

From the very comforting, warm welcome I received in reception, right up until the exchange of money at the end of the session, my enthusiasm only grew stronger with each exchange.
Justin is a very caring and transparent human-being, who took the time to listen to the intricacies of my case and give sound advice on the way through this.

Had my first interaction with Justin Ireland in regards to my legal matter. There was no showboating about their previous cases or how many they have won which was impressive, in stead he announced his position and who was working with him and proceeded to lay down how my matter would be handled. People are often turned off by costs but when put into prospective the time and people involved, their prices are quite competitive. I have confidence I have made the the right decision by choosing Strategic Lawyers
