Should I Obtain Legal Advice?

Time Limits Apply – Act Now!

There are STRICT TIME LIMITS that apply to making a claim for personal injury in Queensland. Therefore, you should contact Stallion Lawyers as soon as possible following your accident, in order to ensure that your legal rights are protected.

The law is often complicated and confusing for non-lawyers. Further, Insurance companies won’t provide you with advice and they will not ensure that your legal rights are being protected. Therefore, in order to ensure that you obtain the maximum compensation that you are legally entitled to, you should obtain legal advice from Stallion Lawyers as soon as possible.

Who Am I Suing?

In most instances the driver at fault will have CTP (Compulsory Third Party) Insurance, which is included as part of vehicle registration costs in Queensland. In these cases, the driver’s CTP Insurer will be responsible for paying compensation to the injured person. For unregistered or unidentified vehicles the claim will be made against the Nominal Defendant (a government department).
