Being a pedestrian can be frightening on our roads. Although we do our best to take the necessary precautions as pedestrians, we cannot always predict the actions of others on the road. Drivers have a duty of care to pedestrians to drive safely and to avoid any hazardous situations that may put others in danger.
Injuries suffered by pedestrians can vary from minor to severe. If you have been injured by a vehicle on the Gold Coast or in Brisbane, you may be entitled to compensation.
Can I make a claim?
In Queensland, Government laws state that you have nine (9) months from the date of your accident to start your claim. If you start your claim after 9 months you must provide a reasonable excuse for delay. Therefore, you should seek legal advice from Zaparas lawyers as soon as possible.
If you have been injured as a pedestrian on the roads due to the fault or negligence of another, you may be entitled to compensation. It is important that you seek legal advice and our expert pedestrian injury compensation lawyers can advise you on your claim.
