        Casualty & Personal Injury

        DWF (Australia)’s casualty and personal injury team is comprised of some of Australia’s leading personal injury lawyers. They are leaders who take responsibility for achieving the best possible outcomes in the earliest possible timeframes and who are backed up by emerging lawyers, administrative assistants and the support of our interstate and international colleagues.

        • Occupiers Liability (e.g. private homeowner claims, universities, shops, swimming pools)
        • Workers Compensation (e.g. employer’s duty of care, host employers)
        • Medical Malpractice (e.g. public and private hospitals, other health services)
        • Transport related claims (e.g. aircraft, public transport, car accidents, water-craft)
