Thinking of bringing a Truck Accident compensation claim? All across south-east Queensland and across the country, trucks criss-cross the roads hauling goods, delivering stock, and moving houses. Truck drivers span all ages, walks of life and come from a range of backgrounds. There’s no denying that driving a truck takes skill and is known to be a relatively high-risk occupation. And while we all take care on the roads, accidents do happen.
So, if you have been injured while driving a truck, or if you have been injured by a truck on Queensland roads, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your injuries.
If you were not at fault in your accident, you can make a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the truck that was involved in the accident. Even if you were partly responsible, you may be able to make a partial claim for your injuries.
