Personal Injury

Meridian has a strong track record in defending clients in the areas of general and personal injury litigation and coronial inquiries.

We represent leading domestic and international insurers, corporates, public and private sector clients, retailers, and TPAs across a wide spectrum of personal injury claims.

Our expertise extends to managing injury claims and handling matters ranging from routine slip and fall claims, to complex multi-party claims that involve contractual indemnity and dual insurance issues, as well as cluster and class action proceedings.

We are experienced in defending personal injury matters in all jurisdictions and acting in a range of claim types including abuse claims, asbestos exposure, catastrophic injury, medical claims, psychological injury, workplace/industrial accidents (including construction), transport accidents, and occupiers’ claims.

We also have significant experience in managing workers’ compensation matters, guiding insurers and self-insured employers on the defence of common law claims and statutory compensation decisions. We also have substantial experience in managing coronial inquiries and have been involved in many complex and high-profile coronial cases.

To effectively manage personal injury portfolios, we implement streamlined procedures that allow for quick, accurate, and efficient analysis as well as prompt resolution of claims. At the same time, we promptly identify claims that require scrutiny such as scheme significant claims, potentially fraudulent claims, and claims that raise unusual indemnity or legal issues.

We are honoured to be consistently acknowledged for our exceptional leadership in personal injury litigation by industry leaders and peers.
