Queensland personal injury lawyers
If you’ve been injured in the workplace, in a motor vehicle accident or in a public place you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation to help you get your life back on track. Compensation may cover past and future medical costs, loss of income and superannuation, pain and suffering and the cost of domestic assistance and care.
There are strict time limits that apply when making a claim for compensation. It is important you contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your injury to find out if you are within the allowed time frames for making a claim.
Whatever your situation, Donnie Harris Law has the knowledge and experience to assist you in navigating the complicated and involved compensation claims process.
Contact us today to arrange your free initial appointment where we will assess your claim and explain all the options available to you.
We can assist you in making the following types of claims:
If you have suffered physical or mental injuries as a result of an accident at work this can have a devastating impact on your life. You may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation to help you recover from your injuries and get your life back on track.
Regardless of who is at fault, if you have been injured at work you have the right to make a statutory compensation through WorkCover’s no-fault scheme. If you were injured due to your employer’s failure to provide a safe workplace, including injury caused by another employee, you may also be able to make a common law claim for damages.
Motor vehicle and road accidents
If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle or road accident, even as a passenger, cyclist or pedestrian, we’ll help you get the compensation you’re entitled to by making a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer.
Public liability claims
We all have the right to be safe while going about our daily lives. This includes on private property such as a private home or shopping centre and public spaces such as parks and sporting grounds. If you have been injured on someone else’s property because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.
Superannuation and insurance claims
If you are no longer able to work in your usual job or occupation due to your injury, you may be entitled to make a claim for Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) or income protection through your superannuation fund. These types of claims are separate from your retirement savings and do not reduce your superannuation balance.
Unable to travel due to your injury?
If you are unable to travel or can’t make it to our office we will arrange to come to you.
We may be able to offer a no win – no fee arrangement to enable you to access the help you need to make your claim. We believe that your financial situation should not be a barrier to accessing quality legal services.
This means that there may be no upfront fees and you do not pay our professional fees unless your case is successful. Our fees are never a percentage of your compensation but rather they are set our clearly and agreed to at the beginning of your claim.
