If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, in Queensland or elsewhere, you may be entitled to compensation.
All motor vehicles in Australia are required to be covered by compulsory third party (CTP) insurance. A claim can still be made if the vehicle is unidentified or unregistered. Your claim will be handled by the CTP insurer, not the owner or driver of the motor vehicle at fault, and it is the insurer who will pay any damages.
In Queensland, you can make a claim if you are injured in a motor vehicle accident which is at least partly the fault of another person. Liability for a motor vehicle accident can be a complicated issue - claims have been successfully pursued by drivers in single-vehicle accidents. We can advise you in detail about your right to claim and your prospects of success.
Some CTP insurers offer “driver-at-fault” cover which provides a lump sum payment for specific injuries. We can assist you to apply for those benefits.
Different rules can apply in other states and overseas – we can advise you about that.
