What makes a successful truck accident claim?
After any truck accident, survey the vehicle if possible, to determine the cause of the crash and the extent of the damage. Make sure your version of events is clearly put to police and if you are a driver, your company supervisor.
See your doctor as soon as possible and let them know all the injuries and issues. Return regularly for follow-up sent to report changes in your condition. Many different people will ask you over a long period following the accident to describe what happened, what your symptoms are and when particular events occurred.
It is essential that all statements made by you are consistent and that if there is an error made by someone in recording your version – for example an investigator or a doctor – they are approached to correct the record as soon as is possible.

We can quickly assess any potential no-win-no-fee claim and then arrange a meeting with you at one of our Brisbane or Gold Coast offices, or your home. At the meeting, we will complete the claim notice and answer your questions about the claim process, explain how compensation is calculated and take you through examples of what the compensation outcome could be for you.
