*Initial consultation via telephone for workers compensation claims (including Comcare, ACT public sector claims managed by EML and military compensation) and motor vehicle accidents.

If you have suffered a physical or psychological injury in the ACT in the workplace, or while travelling to or from work, you may be entitled to claim workers compensation from your employer.

Comcare is the scheme that provides workers compensation benefits to Australian Government employees, and to the employees of a limited number of other national businesses, such as Australia Post.

If you were injured in a motor vehicle or cycling accident before 1 February 2020, and you were not at fault, you are likely to be entitled to compensation and we can help you with that.

However, on 1 February 2020, the ACT Government changed the way people injured in motor vehicle or cycling accidents on ACT roads receive compensation.

In a recent article, Amber Wang explained what this law change might mean for you if you’re involved in an accident – you can read it here.

In the ACT, if you suffer injury or loss as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

At Snedden Hall & Gallop, we have been successful in many public liability claims and sporting injury claims, including those related to:

  • slips and falls in public places
  • injuries caused by impure foods or dangerous goods
  • transport accidents, such as aircraft accidents
  • unsafe and unpadded trampolines
  • skiing accidents
  • go-karting incidents
  • horse riding accidents.

We can assist you in accessing compensation for an injury or loss as a result of defective goods.

Medical negligence claims are those that involve compensation when you have suffered injuries that have been caused as a result of inadequate skill or care by your healthcare provider.

Professionals owe their clients a duty to act with reasonable care and skill. If a professional fails to act with due care and skill, you may have the right to claim compensation for financial loss.

Professional negligence claims can be brought against:

  • the financial sector, such as accountants, bankers, and financial advisors;
  • the building sector, such as builders, architects, and engineers;
  • the property sector, such as real estate agents, valuers, and surveyors;
  • and other professionals, such as lawyers, doctors, and consultants.

If you have been exposed to asbestos at any time in your life and are suffering from asbestosis, mesothelioma or any asbestos-related illnesses you may be entitled to claim compensation.

We offer fully transparent no-win, no-fee arrangements (excluding Comcare claims). Our fees are based on the work we do, not a percentage of your compensation sum.
