Car Accident Claim
A few years ago I was involved in a low speed accident within a car parking complex in Brisbane. My vehicle was driven into as I was reversing downhill into a car parking space. Due to my twisted position at the time of parking, I sustained a thoracic injury which causes discomfort and requires regular treatment from massage and physiotherapists. At the time I had just assumed that I had to put up with this forever and it was “just one of those things”.
Through word of mouth I met Tom Forster from Injury Lawyers Queensland who said that I could make a claim for my treatment costs, future treatment and potential loss of earnings. Tom was extremely personable and just an all-round fantastic bloke. He explained the legal process in clear language and his communication was excellent.
When we took the claim to mediation they didn’t agree to what we had thought would be fair compensation. Tom’s advice was to take the case to trial and shortly before the trial they called Tom to ask what compensation he thought was fair to finalise the claim. Thanks to Tom’s expertise and experience we ended up with more than double the original compensation figure.
I could not recommend Tom enough to anyone who has suffered a similar incident. You will get one on one personal service from an absolute professional who will guide you through the entire claims process.
