Everyone hopes to make it through the day safely and arrive home in one piece. However, when you are injured because someone else was careless, the injuries can have a huge impact on your life. It can lead to pain, the need for costly and ongoing treatment and it can interfere with your ability to work and your future options.
A Queensland public liability compensation claim assists people who are injured in accidents in public or private places (other than car accidents). This can include injuries in private residences, commercial premises, shopping centres, public areas such as footpaths, schools and more. A claim can provide a lump sum damages payout to compensate you for the impact the injury has had on your life.
In Queensland, we have a great regime to compensate people who are injured due to the negligence of someone else.
You are eligible to bring a Queensland public liability claim if:
You might also be eligible for additional workers compensation benefits if your accident occurred while working, between work and home, or on a lunch or smoking break.
Being injured is distressing enough. Trying to find money to pay for lawyers to protect your rights can also seem impossible for most.
But don’t feel like you have to take action alone. The statistics from the Motor Accident Insurance Commission reveal that the insurers pay much less to people who don’t have lawyers. This is because gathering enough evidence to prove your case is complex and insurers are not likely to tell you what you should be claiming for. In short, if you go it alone, you could actually end up worse off.
We acknowledge that many injured people cannot afford to pay for a lawyer or for experts to provide medico-legal reports. So, to improve access to justice, we offer No Win No Fee cost arrangements. This means that if we do not get you a compensation pay out for your personal injury claim, then you don’t need to pay our professional fees.
Therefore, you can obtain legal advice and commence a claim without the worry of trying to pay for it while you are recovering from your accident, injury or illness.
We offer a NO OBLIGATION INITIAL CONSULTATION to find out if you have a valid claim for compensation.
