So, while Queensland is generally a safe place to live and work, there are countless instances where the health of Queenslanders is put on the line through no fault of their own. From Brisbane to Birdsville, Cairns to Coolangatta, injuries are hard to escape – no matter where you are in the world.
Fortunately, Queensland has the legal systems in place to ensure we can seek financial compensation for injuries that were out of our control. While this legal system can be confusing, enlisting the help of a Queensland personal injury lawyer is the easiest way to ensure you can maximise your claim.
Let’s go through exactly how a personal injury can help you get the maximum compensation amount in Queensland.
Our personal injury lawyers are Queensland law experts
Personal injury lawyers, like our team here at Gouldson, understand Queensland law inside and out. In Australia, each state has its own laws and legalities when it comes to filing a personal injury claim – so it’s important you get someone on your side who understands these laws.
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Workers’ Compensation
- Public liability claims
- Total or Permanent Disability claims
No matter what claim you file, we’re bound to have experience handling similar cases in the past.
We approach your claim from all angles
We take the time to get to know you as a person and understand your situation. From here, we gather all the facts of your injury, allowing us to approach it from all angles, ensuring you get the maximum compensation amount possible.
Because our lawyers are Queensland law exerts, we can help you claim compensation for things you maybe haven’t even considered yet.
This may include things like:
- The cost of medical treatment, now and into the future.
- Rehabilitation, both ongoing and into the future.
- Any loss of income, including both past information and into the future.
- The cost of any care and support services.
- General damages, including pain and suffering, reduction in quality of life.
- Any other expenses, depending on your individual situation.
In fact, we’ve handled thousands of claims in our time. But, nobody knows better than us that each claim is as individual as the person filing it.
