If you were injured in a motor accident in Queensland, you are entitled to compensation under the following claim items. Claimify can advise and assist you with your claim valuation.
This compensates for how the injuries have affected you, including the pain, suffering and inconvenience you experience now and in the future. The amount claimable is governed by law, taking into account the severity of your injuries and other factors.
This includes loss of earnings (wages, salary, business earnings) you have suffered because of your injuries from the date of the accident to now. Loss of superannuation and interest can also be claimed.
This means the loss of earnings you are likely to suffer in the future because of your injuries. In calculating this loss, we’d like to know what your future career plans were prior to the accident and how these have been impacted. For example, you have reduced your hours, missed out on promotional opportunities, or need to look for other jobs. You can also claim future loss of superannuation.
This means reasonable expenses paid in the past because of your injuries, including for medical treatment, medication, travel, rehabilitation, medical aids or equipment, and services (personal care, mowing lawns, property maintenance). You can claim interest (at a prescribed rate) on the amounts you have paid yourself. If other providers (eg. Medicare, your private health fund, WorkCover or other insurers, hospitals) have already paid all or part of your expenses, we must recover these as part of your claim and refund benefits paid to the benefit provider. It is important that we have evidence of your expenses, so please keep and upload any receipts or documents on ‘My Documents & Expenses’ in ClaimHQ.
This means future expenses you are likely to incur because of your injuries. For example – medical treatment, medication, travel, rehabilitation, medical aids or equipment, and services (personal care, mowing lawns, property maintenance). It is helpful to have these expenses supported by evidence, often by medical professionals. We will discuss this with you during the Claim Valuation process.
This compensates for any voluntary care you have received because of your injuries. Past care can be for personal assistance (bathing, dressing, washing), domestic assistance (cooking, cleaning, house duties), or property maintenance (mowing, gardening). We are able to recover for this time at commercial rates. Note that you must have required care services for at least 6 hours per week for 6 months to qualify for this claim item.
This compensates for any voluntary care needs you are likely to require in the future because of your injuries. Future care can include for personal assistance, domestic assistance, or property maintenance. Again, this is claimable at commercial rates.
Claimify will discuss these items further with you during the claim valuation process.
