Personal Injury Law Experts

So you’ve been in an accident – now what?

Being involved in an accident can be a stressful, confusing time. You may be suffering from a significant injury that is keeping you off work, or receiving costly ongoing treatment for long-term pain or impairment.

Queensland law recognises your right to recover damages (i.e. compensation) where you have suffered a personal injury and a consequential loss as a result of someone else’s fault or negligence.

How The Process Works

Every case is unique, and can take a varying amount of time to reach settlement. In general, cases can take between 18 to 28 months to reach settlement, depending on whether or not a negotiation can be reached without requiring court proceedings.

  2. We’ll lodge your claim with the insurer and check for claim compliance.
  3. We’ll start to build your case by gathering all required evidence and investigating the incident further.
  4. We can arrange with insurers to fund any required ongoing rehabilitation.

  7. If court proceedings are required, we’ll prepare for this with you.
  8. Once settlement has been reached – whether through negotiation or trial – we’ll make sure your payment is processed as quickly as possible.

Our Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

N

Does it matter when I make a claim?

Absolutely! There are time limits that apply to all types of personal injury cases, which means it’s important to lodge your claim as soon as possible.
N

I am back at work. Does that mean I won’t get any compensation?

It’s great to hear that you’re back at work! The short answer is no, being back at work won’t affect how much money you will receive from a successful claim.
N

Will I be covered for ongoing treatment?

Yes. If you require ongoing treatment as a result of the injuries sustained from an accident, then you can claim for any necessary care or assistance you will require in the future.
N

I wasn’t alone when the accident occurred. Who has a right to make a claim?

Passengers in a motor vehicle accident have the right to seek damages if they were injured as a result of the accident. For example, if you were in a motor accident with your wife or children – even if you were at fault – they have the right to make a claim for their injuries.
N

Can a minor make a personal injury claim?
