PERSONAL INJURY COMPENSATION
If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, or you’ve suffered injury or illness because of someone else’s negligence you may be entitled to personal injury compensation. You may also be entitled to make a claim if you’ve become unable to work due to illness/disability/injury. We offer advice on what compensation you’re eligible for, and walk you through making a personal injury claim to reach a fair settlement.
We represent clients who have been injured at work (including when traveling for work, when on breaks or on business travel) with smart, timely legal advice and support through the compensation claim process. Our WIRO approved lawyers can advise on your legal rights and entitlements to financial compensation following a work injury, and can negotiate with insurers and other parties on your behalf.
MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE COMPENSATION
Medical negligence can happen when a health professional fails to provide you with reasonable care or treatment, or misdiagnoses your condition. This can include cosmetic treatment as well. Medical negligence is a complex area of law that requires expert advice and counsel, and Lionheart Lawyers have the knowledge and experience to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
MOTOR ACCIDENT COMPENSATION

Motor accident injuries cause hardship, stress and financial trauma that can be life-changing for victims and their loved ones. Our legal experts advise on your rights and entitlements, and can represent you in Court if proceedings are needed.
PUBLIC LIABLITY COMPENSATION
Many people are don’t know about public liability compensation and that they may be entitled to pursue a claim for compensation. Public liability claims encompass a large range of situations, such as suffering injuries due to:
- Slipping over in a store/shopping centre.
- Sporting activities.
- Incidents at school.
- Dog bites.
- Home owner’s negligence (including at rental properties).
- Defective/faulty products.
- Cosmetic/medical treatment not administered by a health professional.
It’s important to seek legal advice promptly if you think you may have grounds for a public liability claim.
SUPERANNUATION / INCOME PROTECTION
If you become unable to work because of an illness, disability or injury (irrespective of who was at fault), you may be able to pursue a total and permanent disability (TPD) claim and/or an income protection claim. Most people have valuable coverage for such claims attached to their superannuation. If you belong to more than one superannuation fund, you may be eligible to claim multiple TPD lump sums. At Lionheart Lawyers, we can assist you in lodging your claim and if necessary, challenge a declined claim.
Even holidays cannot prevent injuries. People can unexpectedly sustain an injury while:
- On a cruise / airplane / train / coach
- Travelling to or from destinations
- Overseas / interstate
The above scenarios may give rise to such claims as:
- A travel insurance policy claim
- A personal injury claim against the carrier/airline/cruise ship / coach company
- A personal injury claim against the travel agent
