Do I have a Property Damage or Compensation Claim?

If you have been the driver of a truck who has been injured in an accident in Queensland that is not your fault, or only partly your fault, you have the right to claim compensation pursuant to Queensland laws.

If you have been a passenger in a truck who has been injured in an accident in Queensland regardless of 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 truck accident claims different?

If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a truck accident you will appreciate that the damage to the vehicles and injuries sustained by people in the vehicles are usually far more serious than most other vehicle accidents.

In many cases the people who are involved in these accidents do not survive or are left seriously injured.

Over the years, our team at ILQ have assisted a number of people who have been injured in vehicles that suffered severe impacts from trucks which have resulted in serious injuries.

At ILQ we take special interest in obtaining the best medical treatment available for people who have sustained serious injuries in truck accidents.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a truck accident and have sustained injuries which require ongoing specialist treatment, call us on freecall 1800 777 099 for an obligation free claim review and we will assist you to obtain the best medical treatment available.

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 Injury Lawyers Queensland there are no upfront legal costs or outlays.

Our ILQ No Win No Fee scheme is available for all motor vehicle 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 motor vehicle accident are suffering financially due to not being able to work or working on a reduced hours basis because of the adverse effects of their injuries.

This 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 fees and outlays can be recovered from the insurance company.

Why use a Lawyer?

If you have been a driver, rider, passenger or a pedestrian that has been involved in a truck accident 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 truck accident in Queensland, it is critical that you obtain advice from a lawyer who is very experienced in truck accident claims to ensure that you are aware of all the benefits available to you.

As ILQ are very experienced in all kinds of truck 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 many cases,  a significant proportion of your legal fees and outlays can be recovered from the insurance company.

What if my truck 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.
