What other questions do you have about making a Trip and Fall or Slip and Fall claim?

After ensuring you’re safe, it’s important to:

  • Report the accident to the property owner or manager.
  • Document the scene and the cause of the slip.
  • Get contact information of any witnesses.
  • Seek medical care, even if injuries seem minor initially.

Yes, location matters. Whether it’s a public space, private property, or business, different laws and duties of care apply. It’s essential to discuss specifics with a lawyer to understand potential liabilities and rights.

Yes. In Brisbane, the general rule is three years from the date of the accident to begin a claim. But there are exceptions. It’s vital to get legal advice soon to ensure you act within the necessary timeframe.

You have 6 months from the date of injury or the date of diagnosis of injury as work related by a medical professional, to make a statutory claim with WorkCover. However, our experience is that the longer you wait, the more likely it is WorkCover will question your claim. We strongly recommend you make a WorkCover claim as soon as possible, even if the injury seems minor.

To best protect your rights:

  • Document the scene with photos showing the hazard that caused the fall.
  • Gather details of any witnesses present.
  • Seek immediate medical attention and keep all related records.
  • Consult a lawyer experienced in slip & fall accident claims for guidance.

The compensation amount depends on factors like the severity of injuries, medical expenses, lost earnings, and more. Each case is unique. A lawyer can give you a detailed estimate based on your situation.

Claim durations vary. Influencing factors include the case’s complexity, injury severity, and clarity around fault. Some claims may settle in months, others may take longer. A lawyer can offer a more tailored timeframe.

The types of damages you can recover, include:

  • General damages – for pain and suffering;
  • Past and future loss of wages;
  • Loss of superannuation;
  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Other past and future out of pocket expenses;
  • The cost of past and future care; and
  • Legal costs.

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 Slip & Fall Accident 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.
