A general guide to compensation

Each state and territory has its own laws that govern your right to compensation, and different types of mishaps are covered by a range of laws.

NSW law prohibits us from publishing information concerning some of the legal services and assistance elringtons can provide.

Our Accredited Specialist in Personal Injury Law  is Matthew Bridger.  His accreditation was granted by the NSW Law Society in 2000.

If you are an injured person you may be able to gain compensation for both future and past:

  • loss of earnings
  • medical and related expenses
  • the care that others have provided to you

Time Limits

There are strict time limits in place within which you must bring a claim.  It is important that you seek independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity after your injury so that we may advise you about these limitation periods, the assessment process for claims in your state and to make sure your interests and rights are protected.
