Compensation battle for Qld flood victims begins today

The battle for compensation over the 2011 Queensland floods continues today, with a hearing to determine damages getting underway in the New South Wales Supreme Court.

It comes after the dam operators, and the Queensland government, were found responsible for exacerbating flooding across the south east.

It was a landmark decision made late last year, after around seven thousand claimants banded together to take on SEQ Water, Sunwater and the state government.

A three day hearing will now get underway to determine just what will be paid to the victims, with the state government not willing to cough up much.

It’s understood they’re only willing to pay around one percent of any financial damages.
