If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, motorcycle accident or even as a pedestrian, you may be entitled to claim accident compensation for your injuries. Injury compensation can include:

It is important to remember that in respect of all car accident claims, even if the driver of the vehicle involved in your accident is a friend or a family member, it is the Compulsory Third Party Insurance company or the Nominal Defendant that will be compensating you for your injuries, loss and damage caused in auto accident claims and not your friend or family member.

Strict time limits apply in relation to lodging your claim for Compensation, which may result in you not being able to proceed with your claim. It is therefore critical that you do not delay in contacting us and ensuring that your rights are protected.

Family Law

Family LawWe have commonly come to know a Financial Agreement entered into before marriage as a "Pre-Nuptial Agreement". The ability of couples to also enter into Agreements once they are married but before they are divorced is a relatively new concept in Australia.

A Financial Agreement can be entered into by couples who are contemplating entering into a marriage with each other. The Agreement can deal with how, in the event of a breakdown of the marriage, all or any of the property or financial resources of either or both of them at the time when the Agreement is made or at a later time and before the dissolution of marriage is to be dealt with. The Agreement can also deal with the maintenance of either party during the marriage or after dissolution of marriage or both during and after dissolution of marriage.

A similar Financial Agreement can also be entered into by couples during a marriage but before divorce. Once again this Agreement can deal with how, in the event of the breakdown of the marriage, all or any of the property or financial resources of either party at the time the Agreement was made is to be dealt with and it can also deal with the maintenance of either party.

Financial Agreements can also be entered into by couples after the dissolution of their marriage dealing with how all or any of the property or financial resources of either or both of them that they had or acquired during the former marriage is to be dealt with and once again can also deal with the maintenance of either party.

Cohabitation agreements or de facto agreements are also recognised in Queensland that confirm the parties' non-financial and financial rights when the de facto relationship comes to an end.

There are strict legal requirements to adhere to in all of these agreements. McDuff & Daniel Lawyers are particularly aware of the delicate and sensitive issues involved in Family matters and their understanding and compassion reflect this.

Wills and Estates

WillsDeath is a fate that awaits us all. If you have not prepared a Will, when you die someone else decides how your assets are to be distributed and how in some circumstances personal matters are dealt with.

Your will is a legal document, which states how you want your estate to be managed after your death and with our guidance can become a small task to undertake.

Any person over the age of 18 years (or under 18 years of age if married) and of sound mental capacity can make their Will.

Some issues to be considered before making your will include:

McDuff & Daniel Lawyers are particularly aware of the delicate and sensitive issues involved in Wills and Estate matters and can guide you through the process with understanding and compassion. Upon your passing we can also assist your family with Estate administration matters.
