How Does Personal Injury Compensation Work in Queensland?
You can sustain an injury in many ways through no fault of your own. The most common examples are from car accidents and work-related incidents. There are many instances where a driver is not focused on driving safely and in accordance with the road rules. They may be distracted by their mobile phones or under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Younger drivers especially are prone to error. Work-related incidents can range from bullying to having a physically unsafe work environment. There is a high duty placed on employers to protect their workers. Unfortunately many employers do not invest in workplace safety due mainly to ignorance. Whenever you are seriously hurt from an incident, you can contact our team of lawyers for an initial consultation.
As from 1 July 2016, the National Injury Insurance Scheme, Queensland (NIISQ) came into effect which is a no-fault scheme that provides necessary and reasonable lifetime treatment, care and support to those who sustain eligible serious personal injuries in a motor vehicle accident or work related accident in Queensland. Some of the serious injuries that are covered are serious burns; spinal cord injuries; traumatic brain injuries; blindness and amputations.
Regardless of the way you have sustained an injury, the state government’s strict limitation periods oblige you to begin a pre-court proceeding by providing notice of your claim to the person or organisation at fault within nine months of your injury. The time limits vary depending on the type and circumstances of the accident.
You should consult our lawyers to receive professional advice on time limits and eligibility to make a compensation claim. Delay could prejudice your right to compensation.
How Much Can You Claim from the Injury?
Our team of lawyers who specialise in personal injury law in Brisbane will formulate and advise on what a range of compensation you are likely to receive at trial. Our legal advice is based on various factors, such as:
- The severity of your injuries and the affected body part
- Past and future lost earnings
- Contributory negligence (if any)
- Past and future medical and treatment expenses.
What Evidence Should You Gather?
Our personal injury lawyers will assist you in obtaining documents that will substantiate your compensation claim. We can help you collect all of the following relevant third party documents to prepare your statutory declarations and statements of loss and damage, such as:
- Medical records from your general practitioner describing medical treatments you have received
- Financial and employment records detailing income earned for the past three financial years and time taken off work because of the accident
- A medical report by doctors assessing your injuries and stating what future treatment you may need and the costs thereof
- Reports from the police and the Queensland Ambulance Service
- A psychological report assessing whether or not you have experienced a post-traumatic stress disorder or other types of psychological trauma.
