We know it can be overwhelming to know which firm to trust with your road accident claim, there’s a lot of us out there! We also know it can sound a little biased when we tell you to choose Best.

There are a few reasons we think you should choose Best as your Pedestrian Injury Claim lawyers:

  1. We hire the Best people: our team aren’t only some of the sharpest legal minds in Queensland (no really, we win awards for it) but they’re also genuinely good people, who care about their clients. When we say we hire the Best, we mean we hire people who care about every case and every client, people you’d want fighting for you that you’d also happily catch up over a cuppa with.
  2. We will never leave you out of pocket: how so?
    • No Win, No Fee. Forever. You will only be charged if we win your case, so you can rest easy that we will be doing everything we can to put you in a better place than when you started your claim with us.
    • 30% Fee Cap. Some firms take around 50% of your compensation claim, we cap at 30% +GST to cover our fees (so even if our fees are more than that, we won’t charge you for it).
    • We cover out-of-pocket expenses. There are necessary expenses that must be incurred to successfully run your claim, because we want you to focus on your recovery and not the cost of your case. We will cover the cost for outlays needed to run your case, and you will only be expected to pay for these if your case is successful (these will be added as a part of your compensation claim, for the insurer to pay for).
  3. We take on cases other firms won’t, and we win them: we have a history of taking on claims other firms won’t, because we’re not afraid of hard work and because we know the difference a successful claim will make to you and your life.
