One of the biggest shocks that injured people in Queensland learn from their lawyers is how little money they can recover for pain and suffering. This is why you need an expert injury lawyer Brisbane and beyond, to help advise you on the issues surrounding your claim for pain and suffering.
You may have suffered a very badly broken wrist in a fall or a disc protrusion in a car accident, experienced an operation, months of rehabilitation and have ongoing pain. After all of this, you would expect a significant amount of money for pain and suffering. You would be wrong.
In Queensland, the amount you recover for pain and suffering is worked out by an Injury Scale Value (ISV). The ISV is found in a table listing all possible injuries and then allocating the injury as mild, moderate or severe and then taking into account the percentage impairment. For example, if it is determined you have an ISV of 6 then pain and suffering damages would be just over $10,000.
On top of this, and strangely enough, you will not recover any money for what use to be called “loss of amenities”, that is how the injuries have affected your personal life, hobbies and other recreational activities. Your favourite pastime may be playing golf but if your injuries prevent you doing this you that means little if anything to your claim and the money you are entitled to.
