Customer Question
Hello. my husband &...

Hello. my husband & I run a business & we have lodged a claim with QBE Insurance for the replacement of a remote control to a crane on a Semi Trailor. QBE want to only pay for the remote control but not for the safety checks that need to be done to ensure that all works correctly. I have even suggested a 50/50 settlement but they dont want to come to the party. What are my options.

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

In Victoria and its a Crane on a Semi Trailor motor vehicle

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

What do you mean?
