Have you had a Motor Vehicle Accident and are not sure how to make a Claim?
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident as a result of another person’s negligence you may be able to claim compensation. But just as important is your recovery; both physically and psychologically. In respect of the latter, a Sunshine Coast support group is “Road Trauma Services Queensland” which was established in 2002. The organisation offers assistance for people in seeking help with the aftermath of car crashes (both victims and families). Depending on your personal experience, you may be referred to qualified counsellors or have the opportunity to discuss your concerns with Garry Church (the founder of the organisation) or Janet Rogers (service co-ordinator). Both Garry and Janet have experience with dealing with serious crashes. For more information call the organisation on 0434 540 258 or visit www.roadtraumaservicesqld.doodlekit.com.
In that context, we can only imagine the stress that you may be experiencing in dealing with your injuries and then on top of that, having to think about making an insurance claim with all its paperwork. McColm Matsinger Lawyers can represent you in the claims process so that you can focus more importantly on attempting to recover and return to your normal quality of life.
Who can make a claim? You may be able to claim compensation if you were the driver of your vehicle, a passenger, a pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicyclist. You may also be entitled to compensation if you were injured as a result of cargo being inadequately secured in a vehicle, as a result of a defect in a vehicle or because of a trailer accident. In respect of fatal accidents, dependents of the person who has passed away can take steps to claim compensation.
Because every person’s potential motor vehicle accident claim for compensation is unique, our senior personal injuries solicitor would be pleased to discuss your individual case with you. Call us now for an informal “no obligation” chat. We would be pleased to help you.
