Returning home after suffering an injury in Australia can be difficult. The journey home from Australia is often a long and uncomfortable one, and you will probably be glad to be back in your country and put your accident behind you.

However, unfortunately the effects of an accident often stay with you after you have been repatriated. This is especially so if your injury is of a serious nature and prevents you from working, or you need ongoing medical treatment and help around your home.

Accident Compensation Australia – Does it Matter Where I Live?

The short answer is no – if you’re injured in Australia, it doesn’t matter where you are from – we can help with all various types of holiday injury claims.

In fact, we have obtained compensation for clients who have sustained injuries whilst visiting Australian from over 25 countries from around world.

We have personally visited clients in their home countries and met with their families, doctors, and carers to obtain the information and statements required to successfully promote and prosecute their personal injury claims in Australia.

We Speak Your Language

Our expert team of travel injury lawyers at Stacks Goudkamp speak a number of foreign languages, but if required we will arrange professional interpreters and translators to ensure that you are fully informed and advised in a language that you understand.

Overseas visitors that are injured in Australia are entitled to receive compensation under Australian law despite the fact that they may have already returned to their own country.

We have experience in successfully applying to the Australian courts for trials to be conducted in our clients’ home countries, to minimise inconvenience and save costs.

Help From Experienced Travel Injury Lawyers

As well as representing injured people directly, we are experienced in working in conjunction with local lawyers in foreign countries. We are happy to take instructions from foreign injury abroad lawyers on an agency basis.

There were many times I wanted to give up and was very close to ending it all for a less than ideal amount, but your support and compassion restored my faith in the system. I can’t describe or show how thankful I am for all the work you and the team put in, the weekend emails and late night calls to keep me in the know.

When it was time to settle, your fearlessness in negotiating an amount showed as we were able to settle for more than we could ever of dreamt of. You have set us up for life, and made it a lot easier to re-establish my life with my injury.

It is bittersweet as I feel like I’m saying goodbye to a dear friend and support network even though you have said you’re still here if I’m in need.

For loss of a better word, Thank you so much for everything!

I could write a book as to how the last 4 years would have been different if not for Tom and his team.
The support, assistance, advice from the first conversation till even after the settlement was second to none from the team at Stacks Goudkamp.
Four years on and after many downs, my children and I have our lives back.
We are unable to THANK YOU enough, but know that you have changed our lives for the better in so many ways since the accident.
