Have you had a cold call asking you about your personal injury and promising to recover compensation for you?
These callers are known as "claim farmers." Although these cold calls are illegal in Queensland, the number of cold calls has increased significantly in recent years.
Whilst these cold callers often pose as a reputable legal firm, they are usually just an offshore call centre. Once they obtain your details, that information is sold to "dubious" law firms for a fee.
If you receive a cold call you should not provide them with any personal details or information. Our advice is that you should hang up otherwise you could put your claim at risk.
You should only deal with established legal firms who have a good reputation. Rees R & Sydney Jones have been representing people in personal injury claims for many years and have built up an excellent reputation in this area.
