Qld flood victims offered legal advice

Queensland flood victims will be given free advice on how to deal with insurance companies.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie says they'll also be able to replace legal documents, such as birth certificates, free of charge.

"We are really wanting to make it as easy as possible because once people start going into their homes, and realising exactly what they've lost and what can't salvaged, they need a little help," he told ABC radio.

"They have legal rights and sometimes they need someone else fighting their battle in this regard."
