Making a claim in Brisbane
As one of Queensland’s leading compensation companies, we can help you with any type of accident and injury and from the minute you call us, we will ensure you receive the best possible rehabilitation, care and support.
Personal injury compensation in Brisbane is governed by the civil liability act 2003 and in most cases, claims should be made within 3 years of the date you became injured or discovered you had been carrying an underlying injury.
For people who have been diagnosed with a condition or industrial injury such as asbestosis, then time limits may not apply. However, to confirm critical information such as time limits and eligibility we strongly advise that you seek confirmation from a practising lawyer in your jurisdiction.
If you would like to launch proceedings or would just like some clarification regarding your matter, you can call us for a free and confidential discussion. We can usually let you know in minutes whether or not you are eligible and if you are and would like to go ahead, we can provide you with specialist legal representation anywhere in the State.
How long does a personal injury claim take?
All claims are unique, but in most cases, personal injury claims take more than 12 months to finalise, as a rule of thumb, the more serious your injury is, the longer the claim will take. For some serious injury claims, it’s not unusual that they take three years plus to settle and for minor cases, they can be settled inside 6 months.
How much compensation can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your compensation.
The amount of compensation owed to plaintiffs depends on the severity of their injuries and the State in which they suffered them.
Some of the main things a solicitor will consider when negotiating your compensation will include.
- Any time off work and lost earnings
- Any future lost earnings
- Any changes in your ability to work
- Care or support, even if given to you for free by family or friends
- Any adaptations you might need to your home or mode of transport
- Travel and accommodation expenses
At this stage it is impossible to give you an accurate estimation of what you could receive however, you can make your own assessment online, without having to speak to a lawyer using our compensation calculator.
