Do I have a Property Damage or Compensation Claim?

If you have been a pedestrian who has been involved in an accident in Queensland involving a motor vehicle that is not your fault or only partly your fault, you have a right to claim compensation pursuant to Queensland laws.

In many cases it is even possible to make a claim even when the identity of the vehicle that has caused the accident is unknown.

Time limits to claim

If you have been involved in an accident we recommend that you seek legal advice immediately as you may lose your right to claim for damages if you fail to act within the critical dates.

It is a good idea to start your claim as soon as possible as the longer you take to start your claim, the harder it is to gather the information and evidence required to prove your claim.

How are pedestrian accident claims different?

People sometimes aren’t aware that pedestrians have the same right to make personal injury claims as people driving vehicles involved in motor vehicle accidents. If you have ever been hit as a pedestrian by any kind of vehicle, you will have a firsthand appreciation of how much pain you can suffer and the severity of the injuries you can suffer.

At ILQ we take a special interest in helping injured pedestrians.

In many cases it is possible to make a claim even when the identity of the vehicle that caused your injuries is unknown. For example, a hit and run scenario.

Just as with other classes of accidents involving motor vehicles, pedestrian accidents not only result in severe injuries, but they also can cause you to have time off work which results in you not being able to support your family and loved ones.

We can pursue your rights as a pedestrian as vigorously as we would for any motor vehicle or motorcycle injury claim.  This includes obtaining the best medical and rehabilitation treatment available and maximising the full amount of compensation claimable for pain, suffering, expenses and the economic loss you have suffered because of the careless actions of other people on the roadway.

No Win No Fee

At ILQ we understand that not everyone is in a position to pay a lawyer for upfront advice. That is why at ILQ there are no upfront costs or outlays.

Our ILQ No Win No Fee scheme is available for all pedestrian accident claims. This means you do not pay for legal fees or outlays unless your case is successful.

In most instances, people who have been involved in a pedestrian accident are suffering financially due to not being able to work or working on a reduced hours basis because of the adverse affects of their injuries.

That is why we conduct all of our personal injury claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

In many cases a significant proportion of your legal costs and outlays can also be recovered from the insurance company.

Why use a Lawyer?

If you have been a pedestrian that has been hit by a motor vehicle that is not your fault, or only partly your fault, you have a right to claim compensation in Queensland.

Because it is in the insurance company’s interests to try and limit the amount of compensation you can recover, they will not advise you what you can claim and what your claim is really worth.

Insurance companies have their own team of lawyers who do everything they can to try and reduce the amount of your claim.

Without legal representation you will be at a big disadvantage when dealing with the insurance companies and their lawyers.

If you are involved in a pedestrian accident in Queensland, it is critical that you obtain advice from a lawyer who is very experienced in pedestrian accident claims to ensure that you are aware of all the benefits that are available to you.

As ILQ are very experienced in all kinds of pedestrian accident claims, we make sure that you recover everything that you are entitled to at law.

And because ILQ operates on a No Win No Fee basis, you don’t need to pay any legal costs or outlays until your claim is successfully finalised.

In most cases, a significant proportion of your legal costs and outlays can also be recovered from the insurance company.

What if my pedestrian accident occurred while I was working or on my way to or from work?

If you were injured while you were working, or on your way to or from work, you still have the same rights to make a personal injury claim against the CTP insurer of the vehicle at fault. You also have the right to make a claim on WorkCover Queensland or your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer to pay for your medical treatment and your weekly wage while you are away from work.
