Personal Injury Law FAQ
What is Public Liability?
Public liability claim generally refers to a claim or an injury which happens outside of the workplace and doesn’t involve a motor vehicle accident.
For example, they are generally referred to as a slip, trip or fall type injury which can occur in, for example, a shopping centre in a public park or even a tenant in a property, and there is some negligence in relation to that rental property.
Who can make a work cover claim?
Anyone that’s an employee that suffers an injury, during the course of their employment, which in most circumstances is at their place of employment.
But it can also include a person traveling to and from their place of employment.
How Long Do I Have to Make a Work Cover Statutory Claim?
A person’s got six months from when they sustain an injury to bring a worker’s compensation statutory claim.
There are some limited exceptions to this, and I’m happy to talk to you about that when you contact us to discuss your matter.
Who is entitled to bring a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim?
Anyone that’s involved in a motor vehicle accident who wasn’t at fault for that accident.
So, this may include a driver, a passenger, a pedestrian, a cyclist, including a motorcyclist, a passenger in a bus, for example.
Those people are all entitled to bring a claim as a result of a motor vehicle accident.
Do I come to your Office?
We understand that people are very busy these days and they often have family commitments, might make it difficult for them to come and see a lawyer, or their injuries may prevent them from leaving their home or even if they’re in hospital.
So, we’re more than happy to come out and see people at their home or wherever they may be and that’s completely free of charge.
There’s no added cost for that. We also understand that people may no longer be in Queensland after an injury, and we can also deal with those people or those clients via phone, email, Skype or whatever the case may be.
