Scooter Accident Claim
l was in a scooter accident in Cairns on the way to work when I was exiting a roundabout. A young P plate driver had driven up the wrong side of the road towards the roundabout, resulting in a head on collision with my scooter.
My injuries were not properly assessed at the hospital and I was sent home with a lot of pain killers.
About a week later I was having trouble claiming the insurance on my scooter and I was still in a lot of pain.
I was given Tom Forster’s business card from Injury Lawyers Queensland (ILQ) and was told he could help with the insurance claim on my scooter.
ILQ obtained a great result for me with the insurance payout on my scooter and also made a personal injury claim for the injuries I sustained in the accident.
Tom and his team’s experience and knowledge of motorcycle accidents were second to none. When I was told by the doctors that I needed 4 operations, ILQ arranged for the insurance company to pay for the costs of all of my operations with the best surgeons available. They also arranged for all my rehabilitation treatment to be paid for by the insurer.
After losing my job and 4 operations later, ILQ arranged for an advance payment from the insurance company to help me financially while I couldn’t work, to prevent my family and I from losing our home.
Although my situation was very stressful and at times depressing, listening to and following Tom’s advice resulted in a very successful compensation claim. I would highly recommend Injury Lawyers Queensland to anyone who has been involved in a scooter or motorcycle accident.
