Frequently Asked Questions

Your claim will cover all of your physical and psychological injuries and losses, including past and future loss.

Some examples of the things you might be able to claim under Queensland law include:

  • Medical, rehabilitation and hospital expenses
  • Loss of earnings
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Home help and nursing provided by anyone, paid or unpaid, if it meets certain conditions

We cannot give you a definite answer, because every claim is very individualistic.

The amount of compensation you can claim in Queensland will depend on:

  • How bad your injuries are
  • Your age
  • Your education and occupation
  • Your health condition at the time of the accident
  • The circumstances of the accident
  • How much you have lost and will lose in wages
  • How much care you need
  • How much money you have paid and will have to pay out of your own pocket
  • The ability and experience of your compensation lawyer

Once your injuries have been stabilized, you’ll need to see a doctor to understand the impact these injuries will have on your future work and enjoyment of life. This will usually involve visiting one or more medical specialists and them writing a report to support your claim.

An assessment of your situation is needed before any projections can be given. Settlements reflect the long term impact on your life so it’s worth remembering that large settlements are associated with long term or life altering injuries.

Yes, there are strict time limits under Queensland law. Therefore, to ensure the success of your case, you must seek legal advice as soon as possible.

If you missed the time limit, your rights to pursue compensation may be lost. The benefit of hiring our compensation lawyer at Ascent Lawyers is that it becomes our responsibility to ensure the claim is lodged within the time limit and correctly.

How long your personal injury claim takes depends on various factors, such as:

  • how complicated your situation is
  • how serious your injuries are
  • what treatment you will need before your injuries stabilise

Each claim is different. So we can’t give you an estimate here. But once we get to know you better, we can give you a clearer idea of the timeframes involved in your claim.

Very few cases end up going to court. The vast majority of compensation claims are settled before going to court. We aim to keep the legal costs down and maximise your net recovery in a time efficient manner.

For all personal injury claims in Queensland, we work on a No Win No Fee basis. You will only pay our legal fees if we win your case. This means that once we take on your case, you do not have to bear any upfront costs!

You can rest assured because:

  • We can come to you
  • Your initial consultation with us is free
  • Unlike most other firms, we do not charge an uplift fee
  • Our legal fee is capped at 50%, so our fees can never be greater than your net compensation!

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Ascent Lawyers for my personal injury case back in 2019. All the lawyers demonstrated high level of professionalism throughout all the stages of engagement. Ascent Lawyers was not only able to provide tailored legal advice, but they had been extremely informative and transparent during the entire process. This is particularly extraordinary when you consider the no-win-no-fee business model for PI matters. My case, in the end, was concluded with excellent results. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the whole team for their hard-work and professionalism, as well as Kira and Mengpei's close involvement with my case. I think their 5-star google review record does not lie. I would also recommend this firm to anyone.
