Personal injury damages
Personal injury damages (or personal injury compensation) may be worth much more to you when engaging the services of a personal injury attorney. The personal injury attorney prepares your claim and negotiates a personal injury settlement. The job of a legal professional is to negotiate the best possible personal injury claim settlement for you to ensure you receive all your just entitlements.
Sometimes the insurance company offers personal injury damages directly and it recommended that legal advice be obtained from a lawyer before accepting or rejecting the offer.
There is no easy way to calculate a personal injury claim settlement as all surrounding circumstances have to be examined. Getting the right personal injury settlement where you get everything you are entitled to is important to assist you with losses past present and future.
Strict time limits do apply for personal injury claims and it is important to get the right advice early on following an injury.
Personal injury law varies from State to State in Australia and so you may find your rights will depend on where your injury took place. You need to deal with a personal injury attorney who specialises in your particular State or Territory as they must learn the State law.
Legal compensation for injuries are your legal right and this is the reason for accident insurance, work compensation insurance and public liability insurance in case of such events.

Determining negligence is what a personal injury attorney should do in preparation for a successful claim.
