I am in QLD, and hit a cow which has resulted in my car

Customer Question
Hi! I am in...

Hi! I am in QLD, and hit a cow which has resulted in my car unable to be driven. I have not yet established if it is a write off or not, due to not really having the finances to do so. Am I able yo seek compensation from the owner of the cow? He was apparently aware his cattle were getting out and being along side the highway near quite a dangerous corner...

Lawyer's Assistant: What state is this in? And how old is the car?

Queensland. Its a 2003 model Toyota Avensis Verso Ultima

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

I tried to report it to the cops when the accident happened but they wanted nothing to do with it. They would though have documentation regarding the cow as they had to shoot it due to its injuries. I also have documentation at the hospital as I had a really bad shoulder spasm

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My shoulder is still quite sore from the accident and it has caused emotional distress to myself and 2 of my kids

Hello, well the issue is, they could well argue that you were not keeping a watchfull eye out for the cow. A could will likely accept that argument sadly.
I encourage you to send a demand letter, but they may well ignore it.Please click accept and rate my service (with the stars). I am able to answer further questions after doing so at no further cost.

Thank you for your time. My daughter has a Toyota Camry that
Hi Pearl,Thank you for your time. My daughter has a Toyota Camry that has only done 134,000 KM and due to a FAILURE with the head gasket. When the engine ceased, there were NO warning lights or anything else to warn her.... the engine just stopped. We have received a quote from Toyota that the repairs will cost $3503 to repair. The vehicle is a 2007 model, and has always been regularly serviced. We sold the Camry to our daughter in 2014, and in the past 3 and half years she has only done some 36,000 km taking her 3 young children back and forth to school. Surely due to a faulty Toyota part, there MUST be SOME responsibility by Toyota to rectify the problem. I cans seperately our initial request to Toyota with the vehicle history, and also their repose that we received this morning. Your assistance in this matter will be appreciated. We are in Brisbane Queensland. Do you have a direct email address please just in case i lose you in our conversation. Thanks. Bill Smith … read more
