Injuries involving motor vehicles occur every day. They can include motorbikes, cars, trucks, buses, pedestrians and cyclists. It’s important that if you or a loved one has been injured in a motor vehicle accident that you know your rights and that there may be compensation available. We recommend you see a doctor as soon as you can to have your injuries recorded and even if you feel you don’t have any, a medical check is highly suggested. You never know what future health problems can occur as a result of your accident.
Please note that there are timeframes in place under Queensland law which pertain to claims involving motor vehicle accidents. Please contact us today so we can discuss with you the time limits applicable to your case and the processes involved.
Respiratory problems can occur from dangerous materials, chemicals, poisonous fibres, and dust. Some of these have a mild affect on our respiratory system, but sometimes the affect can be serious and life threatening, even leading to death.
For instance asbestos poisoning can be fatal, but symptoms don’t develop until 30 to 40 years after exposure.
If you are suffering from a respiratory related illness and wanting compensation, please realise that there are number of aspects involved, should you want to make a claim. Our specialised lawyers will take the time to discuss what options might be available to you.

SUSTAINING AN INJURY IN A PRIVATE OR PUBLIC PLACE
If you have received an injury on a public or private property which isn’t due to a motor vehicle accident or work related, you may be eligible for compensation under Public Liability.
Examples of such accidents are and not limited to:
Assaults of any nature
Injuries sustained during sporting events
Injuries sustained during recreation
Attacks involving dogs
Water accidents, for example ones involving boats, jet skis etc
Injuries sustained at restaurants, clubs, pubs etc
Our lawyers at Personal Injury Lawyers Brisbane will be able to discuss with you if have sustained an injury and what you need to do to make a claim for compensation. Please note that to make a claim under Public Liability, there needs to be a ‘party’ who is at fault.
SERIOUS AND CATASTROPHIC INJURIES
Injuries which are classed as serious or catastrophic in nature are those which basically impact a person’s life so much so that it’s ruined. Such injuries can occur in any circumstance or situation. Injuries which are classed under the umbrella of serious or catastrophic can include physical and mental trauma. Examples are: spinal damage, brain damage, severe amputations and severe damage to the body or mental health.
Please note that to claim for compensation if you or a loved one has been affected by a serious/catastrophic injury that it needs to be made under the banner of how it was sustained. For instance, if it occurred in a motor vehicle accident, then paperwork for Motor Vehicle Accident Claim needs to be completed. Again the forms can seem countless and complicated. Our lawyers at Personal Injury Lawyers Brisbane will support you through the whole claim process, to give you support through such a difficult time.
The world we live in is ever changing which means that there are always changes in the laws related to compensation claims and therefore to the types of claims that can be made. If you are faced with a situation which isn’t covered in the above services, please contact us to discuss what compensation could be available. Our professional team of lawyers take the time to keep up to date with current compensation claim laws. They will know how to support you in the best possible way and what the most favourable options are relating to your personal circumstances.
