Customer Question
I had an income...

I had an income protection policy with Suncorp & they wouldn't pay out because they said I had a sprained ankle when I was about 15 years of age. Is that acceptable ?

Lawyer's Assistant: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.

Ok I live in Qld

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

No, because I didn't know if I had a right to question it.

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

If this costs anything I can't afford it ?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
