Motor vehicle accidents are common and can be extremely distressing, causing financial hardship as well as serious injuries. Brisbane Injury Lawyers provides a full range of legal services for motor vehicle accident injury claims. Claims may relate to a broad range of matters including head injuries, spinal injuries, lost income and, in some cases, major medical costs.
Issues to Consider When Claiming Compensation
There are many situations where you may be entitled to claim compensation following a car accident.
If you were a driver, passenger or pedestrian involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to make a compensation claim for:
- Physical injuries
- Psychological stress and related medical conditions
- Medical costs, including wheelchairs and in-house medical facilities
- Permanent or temporary disability
- Continuing medical treatment, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, and similar considerations
- Loss of income, future income, and/or career prospects
- Additional compensation for related matters affecting you or your family
The Compensation Claim Process
Compensation claims can be very complicated and lengthy. Many claimants, already under significant stress from injuries may experience additional problems, including:
- Medical costs
- Financial hardship
- Problems coping with daily personal needs
- Physical support issues related to injuries
The best way to manage these issues is to get legal support and assistance in making a claim. You can pursue your claim through a negotiated settlement or through court action.
How We Help
Negotiation is required for all compensation claims prior to court action. It is often a more efficient way of claiming compensation. Settlements of this kind can include all aspects of compensation, including ongoing costs. Choose Brisbane Injury Lawyers for legal guidance through the negotiation process.
Court action is generally not required, with the majority of claims being settled through negotiation with the insurer. If you require representation and advice regarding court action, talk to our team. Brisbane Injury Lawyers can generally finalise basic traffic accident claims in 12-18 months.
