What are you entitled to for compensation for in Queensland?

There are three types of losses for which you can claim compensation:

1. Non-pecuniary (non-economic)

- Pain and suffering

- Loss of amenities of life

- Loss of expectation of life or disfigurement

Note: The amount payable for non-pecuniary losses are scaled and capped by legislation.

2. Loss of earnings

- Future expected losses of income due to your personal injury

3. Other economic losses

- All medical care and out of pocket medical expenses

- Cost of any care required

- Loss of superannuation

- Interest

- Loss of homemaking capacity

- Future general and medical expenses

The principle of compensation is that the amount you receive is to put you back in, as nearly as possible, the position you would have been had the injury not occurred.

To ensure that you receive all that you are entitled to it is paramount you engage a legal representative that has the knowledge and experience to ensure you claim for everything you are entitled to. You only get to make one compensation claim so ensure it is done right and call us today to see how we can help you.

Are you no longer able to work?

Superannuation and Total Permanent Disability Claims:

If you suffer an illness or an injury and can no longer work, you may have insurance linked to your superannuation on which you may claim. To ensure that you receive the full amount that you are entitled to, make sure you have legal representation that has the knowledge and experience to get the result you need so you can get on with your life. Our solicitors have many years of experience in successful negotiations in obtaining the right results. Call us today for an obligation free discussion about how we can help you.
