Compensation Lawyers: 5 Things to Know.

Most of us rarely have to deal with a lawyer in our lives. When we buy a house, or have to be the executer for a will, or if we get a traffic fine. But a compensation lawyer is a very specialized profession and we have to use one when we have been injured in an accident or suffered harm due to the actions or negligence of another. The role of a compensation lawyer is clearly explained here so that you may understand what a injury compensation claims lawyers will do for you in the case of you needing to be represented for a civil claim for compensation.

Specialist Lawyer.


Backache at work

A compensation Lawyer has chosen to specialize in accident and injury law or civil Tort law. There are many reasons why a lawyer will specialize in accident compensation law. The most common is that they want to help people who have been wronged in some way by a third party. These specialist compensation lawyers fight for the rights of the injured, so that they may recovery from the injury or be compensated such that they may lead as close to a normal life as possible.

No Win No Fee.

A No Win No Fee Compensation Lawyer, will have financial systems in place such that the client, or plaintiff will not have to front hourly lawyer fees for pursuing a compensation claim. This means that the lawyers fees are not paid by the plaintiff until, and unless the compensation lawyer successfully wins the compensation claim case.

Motor Vehicle Accident.

Some compensation lawyers specialize even further in the field of Tort Law and assist plaintiffs with cases that involve motor vehicle accidents. These lawyers have many years of experience in winning compensation claims against large insurance companies and ensure that their clients get the best representation possible and receive the optimum recompense for any injury that has been suffered by the plaintiff.

Workplace Compensation.

Many specialist compensation lawyers will focus their skills in the arena of workplace compensation claims. The law surrounding the workplace particularly in Australia is very complicated and only a lawyer with many years of astute practice will be able to ensure that their client receives the maximum benefit that the workplace regulations and legislations allow for.

Online Defamation.

defamation-of-characterWith the growing reach of global social media there is an alarming rise in the prosecution of online defamation or cyber-libel. Many cases in Australia and elsewhere in the world have been successfully tried and compensation awarded for libelous posts and slanderous videos. Most people do not realise that by posting an opinion on social media, they are effectively publishing a front page news article, at least in the eyes of the law. Even if one reposts the slanderous opinion of another they may also be prosecuted for promoting libelous opinion. A compensation lawyer that specializes in libel and slander will have an in depth understanding of modern online libel cases and how to ensure that their client is protected and compensated for any damage done to standing in the community or their reputation.

The Importance of Following The Mediation Process Through

img_stock-mediationThe Mediation process is very simple. It involves: (1) Concerns; (2) Issues; (3) Exploration; and (4) Negotiation. This process is based on the Facilitative Model of Mediation. Essentially it involves communicating first and negotiating secondly. Sounds simple enough but more and more what I’m finding is that people are very impatient with this process and want to find a solution or to finish the mediation far too early in the process.


Our unquenchable thurst to find a solution in life is one of the main reasons why people find themselves in conflict in the the first place. As the old saying goes…women want to discuss the problem and men want to discuss the solution. In a way we all need to embrace our feminine instincts. I honestly believe that it is a good way to live your life as well. To look at the problem and to avoid the tendency to find solutions too quickly. Probably not good news for the life coaching industry.



The exploration process really involves understanding where both you and the other person is coming from. Not only intellectually but also emotionally. This process can take hours and sometimes days to go through. This process will be slightly different in a workplace mediation context versus family mediation (more emotional) context but the general principles are the same. Once everyone has said their piece then and only then can you move onto the negotiation stage (which should take no more than 2 hours to complete).


Sometimes parties choose to pull out of the process during the exploration stage. They often incorrectly assume that the process is not working due to a perceived exacerbation of conflict. I once had a workplace mediation that was only booked for 4 hours on a friday afternoon. At the end of the 4 hours we were only part way through the process and both parties left the mediation believing that an agreement was not going to get reached and that the mediation was a waste of time.


The reason for this is that they don’t fully understand the process and to a certain extent they were right. During the exploration phase, at times it feels that the conflict is enhanced and not getting better. Successful mediations are not always on track 100% of the time. This is why it is very important to stay the course so to speak.


Sometimes following the process will mean retreating back to the exploration phase of the process while negotiating if something significant comes out. A successful negotiation can only occur once the parties have successfully explored all the different issues first. It is a complete waste of time trying to finish a mediation too quickly for the sake of having a nice and neat agreement.


A major disagreement once successfully explored and negotiated on is an extremely satisfying process. On the whole most people don’t know what this process actually looks like. This is why attending a mediation session can be an extremely valuable learning experience and can inform future disagreements.

Choosing The Right Electrical Contractor

logoWhen it comes to choosing a licenced electrician on the Gold Coast, there are few points that you really need to take into consideration. Firstly does the electrician have all of the appropriate qualifications and licences associated with the tasks that you need them to carry out.

Secondly, does the electrician have the years of experience required to handle every challenge that the task may require. Many tradesmen these days can have a license in an associated trade, but may lack the experience is you do the tasks that there employer asked them to carry out during their traineeship.

That is why it is always important to check the credentials of your tradesmen and make sure that they have the experience and all of the appropriate licences to carry out the tasks at hand. Any decent electrical contractor will confidently hand over their resume and make all of the qualifications easy to access for your perusal.

Electrical wiring can be a very dangerous thing. If not carried out efficiently by a qualified electrical contractor many things can go wrong including household fires and in the worst-case scenario electric shock.

A shock from faulty wiring can cause severe injury including burns and in some cases may cause death. This is why it is always crucial to check the credentials of any electrical contractor that is scheduled to carry out work on your household or business.

Every year we hear of the terrible tragedies caused through faulty wiring resulting in the burning down of residential homes. By taking a few simple measures before hiring an electrical contractor you can be rest assured that they have all the qualifications skill and expertise to carry out the work required on your own.

If you need a qualified electrician in Brisbane then contact us and we will gladly hand over our credentials. Visit Dexco Industries for more details!

If at any time you are uncertain about the qualifications of tradesmen that you have hired always make sure to ask in for references from previous customers and or a complete list of his qualifications and competencies.

Another problem associated with electrical contractors is they fail to show up when they say that they are going to. This causes frustration for the customer and in some cases can actually lead to a general disdain towards that particular tradesperson.

Cheap As Weddings

There are always the extra costs to a wedding that somehow take you unaware, such as the cost of seat covers, pillows for the rings if you have ring bearers (Perhaps your best man is a great guy, but you just can’t trust him with something small and precious) and a thousand other things that apparently are a ‘must’ for the modern wedding.

But what if you really wanted to make your wedding as cheap as possible. Well, here is a suggestion. Go Naked.

Want to save money? Go Nude!

Want to save money? Go Nude!

Yes, that’s right, nude. Get your gear off and celebrate your wedding ‘au naturel!’ You will save on all sorts of costs, no need for something old, some thing new, something borrowed or even blue. No expensive wedding gowns, no brides maids complaining that fuschia doesn’t suit their complexion. No need to worry if your beau to be can tie a tie. So many worries just gone! There may be other things to be concerned over that previously may not have worried you, such as seeing your mother in law as you hoped you never would. Also concerns about that leery old uncle may scale up to code red and perhaps your intended may require a little hedge trimming so that his fella is displayed to best effect.

You may be thinking, do people really do that? Yes, yes they do. All over the world folk are stripping off instead of dressing up to celebrate their special day. In fact more and more people are getting their gear off to celebrate their nuptials. The first recognised nude wedding occurred in The Elysian Fields in California (Where else) in 1942. Since then hundreds of couples all over the world have embraced their body image and saved a penny or three by dispensing with extraneous items such as pants or shirts, or dresses. Many brides choose to keep a couple of items; A veil maybe, or even a garter or perhaps a string of pearls, whilst the groom may keep a top hat handy in case something pops up unexpectedly! The largest Nude Wedding on record was conducted at the Hedonism resort located in Jamaica. Reports vary as to how many naked couples tied the knot, but certainly more than twenty five at one time and any where up to sixty couples at this regular celebration held every year on valentines day.


Here in Australia couples are also getting married in the buff mostly because they are at heart naturists and enjoy getting out and about with it all hanging out, but there are others such as this couple who won a competition on a Brisbane radio station and won an all expenses paid wedding if they went in the nude. Having a nude wedding will save you lots of money not only on clothes, but if you insist that all the guests are naked as well you will be sure to save a small fortune as very few (except perhaps the leery old uncle) will even turn up!

Learn To Cut Back On Your Monthly Expenses By Creating Your Own Electrical Power | Electrician Brisbane

As a fully Qualified Electrician Brisbane  I am often asked about Solar Power. Here is some thoughts on the subject.

Electrician Brisbane Solar Energy

The Planet is currently under attack so lots of people all over the globe are trying to do their part to try and save it as much as they can. It’s because of this that we have decided to take a better look at using solar panels.

We are going to look at a system that will be able to help you to make this possible. We are going to take a look at the “Home Made Energy” program.

As an Electrician in Brisbane, I often get asked to utilise the Queensland sun!

Utilizing solar power has other upsides aside from having a positive effect on the environment. However, your attempts will have a great effect so its a great starting point. Solar power can easily help you to save lots of money on your electrical bill. As much as 80% of your electric monthly bills can potentially be saved by learning how to use the Home Made Energy program.

Saving Money

If you are not using energy from the sun, you can expect to pay approximately $150 per month for your electricity requirements. Now, if you can use the Home Made Energy program to create your own solar panels, and you can save 80% off your electric bill, you could be saving $120 per month. In merely a year, you would have saved $1,440 and $14,400.00 will be your sum saving after 10 years. I hope that made you realize the likely savings that are within your grasp.

This program will show you how you can generate your own electricity by making your first solar panel for less then $150. The more solar panels that you create using this uncomplicated process will result in a greater saving of money, both today and in the long run. The production of electricity makes pollution and as you will be producing your own energy, you will be doing your bit to help our environment.

These panels do not call for any experience to construct, nor do they require technical expertise or fancy tools so you can get going on making them as soon as you have the system. They provide you with the information on where to get all the parts you would need and they also supply you with you a step by step plan on how to begin building the panels. The easy step by step directions means that anyone can construct their own solar panels easily.

Because this program will show you how to construct your own panels that will ordinarily cost about $20,000 if bought from a retail store, that is already a great bonus. Hence, not only will you be decreasing your carbon footprint, you will also be saving money on a regular basis.

The “Do it yourself” program will show you precisely what to do to help you save great amounts of money on your energy bills beginning from the moment you get it. It even has the potential to give you the power to never pay another one again! Why not try it out for yourself and see how simple it can be to produce your own electricity, save money and reduce your carbon footprint, or alternatively you can contact me and I will install it for you!

Concrete Creations

Concrete is a material that has allowed for constructions that boggle the mind and seem to defy the very nature of gravity itself. The very properties of moulding and malleability that make concrete the perfect medium for building houses, pavements and retaining walls also make it the paramount ingredient in making some of the most mindboggling sculptures the world has seen.


O Cristo Redentor.

Christo Redentor

Christo Redentor

Rio: if you can tear your eyes away from the balmy beaches and bronzed bodies for a moment you may cast your eye upon the cloud wreathed peak of Corcovado (The Hunchback) mountain. Reigning above the clouds, above the mountain and above all of Rio is the largest concrete Art Deco statue in the world: Christ The Redeemer.


Towering an impressive 39.6 metres from the base of the plinth to the top of His holy head Christ the Redeemer has graced the city of Rio since construction finished in 1931. Erecting the statue took six years and involved a two-part process of constructing the core from reinforced concrete and moving to cladding the statue with carved soap stone. The statue itself is 30 metres high and the plinth is 9.5 metres giving a total of 39.5 metres in height. The entire edifice weighs 635 tonnes and is the fifth largest statue of Christ in the world.


Some of you may know that this has been listed as one of the modern wonders of the world. This in essence was a popularity contest run by a Swiss company. The Brazilian government made voting for this selection free and subsidised the millions of Reals spent by passionate Brazilians intent on making Cristo Redentor world famous.


Is that Mother calling?

The motherland calls!

The motherland calls!

Packing up our virtual bags we shall depart the sunny shores of Brazil and find ourselves in chilly Volgograd, Russia. This historic site was at the very centre of the battle of Stalingrad, possibly the most horrific single battle in the history of mankind. Nearly six months of fighting between the Germans and Russians destroyed this industrial centre and killed at least 1.3 million people. In fact the city reverts to its previous name for six days every year to commemorate the pyrrhic victory in that horrendous battle. The battle was pivotal for the Russian forces and the bravery of the men who held out against overwhelming odds is in the realm of legend.

To commemorate this extraordinary sacrifice the largest statue in the world (at that time) was commissioned and erected from prestressed concrete and steel cable. This enormous effigy towers a total of 87 metres and is formed from 7,900 tonnes of concrete. The body of the statue is 52 metres tall whilst the sword arm extends a further 33 metres into the air. An extraordinary feat of construction was to specifically prestress the concrete to cast the sword and outstretched arm. This construction would have been impossible to complete in any other medium than concrete. The ability pre-mould concrete and embed steel supports make concrete the most flexible of construction materials.

Vital Qualities of an Effective Business Representative Business Sales Brisbane

Leadership and Business


It’s well known that leadership is very important in business, but what qualities do you need to be an effective leader? On this page, we’ll be focusing on the qualities that are necessary to encourage and inspire your employees and colleagues. While leadership comes more naturally to some people than others, anyone can attain these abilities and learn to become a better leader.

Business For Sale Brisbane

To become a good leader, you must be able to start using yourself as an example. It is

Once you have built a business in Brisbane. You may wish to sell it! Business Sales Brisbane.

Once you have built a business in Brisbane. You may wish to sell it! Business Sales Brisbane.

important that you devote yourself to a cause before you will get others to follow you. The first thing that must happen is you have to know the subject or undertaking very well. That way you are able to guide and motivate your team in the best possible way. It’s not good to be the type of leader who delegates every little thing with no sort of help or support. You are not going to have to know every ultimate detail but you should have enough understanding to guide your team.

Furthermore a good leader gives credit to the members of the team. By trying to get all of the glory for yourself, you are not going to inspire the kind of loyalty you need to build an effective team. Everyone needs to feel appreciated for the efforts they make, and as a leader, you should be the first one to acknowledge peoples’ accomplishments. Don’t compliment or flatter people for the sake of it, but mainly when they truly are worthy of it. This way your staff will respect you and know that their efforts will be recognized. As a result, your team will probably continue to work hard and stay focused when projects arise.

Flexibility is yet another important quality to being a great leader. It doesn’t suggest being indecisive or wishy-washy, but being ready to change your approach when the situation calls for it. If you cling too intently to a process and refuse to make a change when it looks like it will fail, you will experience dissension. You need to be open to any possible opportunity so that you have the option to either stay on track or change direction. If somebody discovers an application which might be more efficient and cost effective than what the business is currently using, you should be open minded enough to consider it. If you don’t take it into consideration, you might find your business slipping behind the competition.

There are lots of traits that are required to be an effective leader, and we’ve looked at just a few of them in this article. Your personal leadership abilities should be in line with who you are as a person. You don’t have to be someone who you may not be. You can contribute quietly or vigorously, and it’s best to be yourself at all times. The important thing is to make the most of your own most effective qualities and use them to inspire others.
