If your injury or accident occurred as a result of negligence, it is recommended you discuss your matter with a personal injury lawyer as you may also be entitled to claim for negligence. Your rights and entitlements under Common Law will depend on the State or Territory in which your injury occurred.
If you have got hurt at work and sustained a permanent injury you could well be entitled to a lump sum payout. If you receive such an offer or have suffered a permanent injury you really need to speak specialist advice before accepting as it is well documented that insurance companies can often make much lower offers.
