Fighting For You – The victim

Slips and Trips

If you have fallen over, slipped or tripped in a public or private place then you understand the initial shock of landing on the floor and feeling that shooting pain through your body.

Slips and trips are quite common and a lot of the time the extent of your injury is not appreciated until sometime later. If you have fallen at a private or public place was there a hazard, wet surface or something on the floor that caused your injury?

Owning a property in Western Australia means that the owner or occupier must take responsibility for the safety of anyone walking or passing through the premises. Sometimes supermarkets, department stores, landlords, and companies cut corners in safety, putting their visitors at risk.

If you have been injured it’s important to act quickly to ensure that the cause of your slip or fall can be established before it is lost.

Private premises injuries

A slip at a supermarket or a shopping center might end in you suffering pain and restrictions plus the expense of treatment and lost earnings. All shops have a duty of care to take reasonable action to make sure visitors are safe from all foreseeable harm. If they breach that duty, by for example failing to clean up a spill or a dropped item, then you may have a right to claim.

Public premises injuries

If you have fallen over on a path, public car parks or any public land and have endured an injury then you might be entitled to compensation. Public liability for public places also includes amenities such as playgrounds

Client Testimonials

G’day Lian(and Jason)

on behalf of Lilly, thank you very much for the speed and professionalism you have demonstrated throughout the handling of this case.

From the beginning you showed us what to do or not do and the benefits that could/may be achieved.

We have not dealt with lawyers before, but have heard some horrific stories.

From the beginning you made us feel very comfortable and that you were not here to rip us off.

Again, thank you.

Keith

It is a pretty harrowing experience being involved in a workers compensation claim. But not with Lian Hall and his team. His knowledge is second to none and most importantly, Lian and his team are always contactable.  I found throughout my workers compensation claim journey that being contactable was the single most important aspect for me. Pick up the phone. Make the call. No question too big or small. Lian was always there. He understands people. He gets it. Highly Recommended.”

“I had a motorcycle in June 2019, I was left with significant disabilities preventing me from working in my previous occupation. Straight away I was angry with the other driver and starting falling into states of depression not knowing what was going to happen with my future. I was recommended Mr Lian Hall by a friend, after the first meeting I knew what the process was going to be, he gave me excellent straight cut no bullshit advice along the way, I could email or call him anytime and get an immediate response. Little things like quick responses made me feel better, Lian was unknowingly acting as a counselor by sending an email or a quick call just checking in on me which kept me from getting down again. It was a long road but I was blessed the day I got Lian’s’ number, they’ve done marvelous work for me. I was very happy with the outcome. I can’t thank Lian and Jason enough.”

“I had a car accident 6 years ago and needed some legal help.   Lian Hall and Jason Rogers were kind enough to help me out, over this time they invested many hours of research to get me the best possible outcome.

My case was very complicated but they had no problem in getting things done.  I found them to be very thorough and professional at all times, but mostly they were very friendly and easy to talk to and very friendly.

I have no problem recommending them to anyone who needs help.  I had a good outcome and I am a very happy man”

Frequently Asked Questions

Additional information for

It is always worth looking into your claim and getting advice. We have seen people who feel ok after an accident but then as time goes by injuries don’t go away, they start to become symptomatic and you need treatment. Do not be in a rush to dismiss your claim. Have somebody look into it and get experienced advice.

Nothing. We are always happy to chat and discuss what’s on your mind about your accident or existing claim. You will not be charged for the initial chat or consultation.

  • You need to chat to your employers HR and get a Workers’ Compensation Claim form. Or you can download the form from: https://www.workcover.wa.gov.au/
  • You then need to have your GP complete First Certificate of Capacity.
  • Both forms will need to be handed to your employer.
  • This must be done as soon as reasonably possible after your injury. If you wait too long there could be difficulties in getting your claim accepted.
  • It is important to start your claim with the correct information and processes. Call us for a chat.

Workers’ Compensation claims are slightly different to other types of claims. In workers’ comp claims you will usually claim your lost earnings, treatment and vocational rehabilitation expenses and travel, and possibly a lump sum if you want to redeem your entitlements.

In Common Law claims, such as car accident and public liability claims, you can potentially claim:

  • Pain and suffering;
  • Loss of amenities;
  • Your lost wages;
  • Any loss of wages into the future;
  • The lost contributions to your superannuation fund;
  • Treatment expenses;
  • The value of any services provided by family and friends;
  • Travel costs

Once fault is determined, injury law is designed to compensate you for your injuries. As a general guide, once your injuries have medically stabilized your losses can be assessed. In other words, once your doctor is happy that they can project what treatment you will likely need, the effect of your injuries and restrictions on your employment, your prognosis etc, then you claim can progress to an assessment and settlement. Each case will be different. The longer it takes for your injuries to stabilize, the longer your claim will take to settle.
