Got questions? We’ve got answers.
To help you understand your rights, entitlements, and processes to make a compensation claim in Queensland, we’ve developed a knowledge base of questions and answers. Browse or search for answers to common questions such as ‘can I be fired while on WorkCover’, ‘what does CTP cover’ and ‘what percentage do no win, no fee lawyers charge’. Some basic info on the most common questions is also provided below.
Are there time limits?Yes, strict time limits apply. The limit is 3 years from the date of accident for most claims unless you were under 18 when the injury occurred. Some exceptions apply, we recommend seeking legal advice as soon as possible.
How long will it take?
The majority of injury compensation claims can be completed within 12-18 months. Time is needed for your injuries to become stable to determine the likely long term impacts of the injury. Very complicated matters can take longer.
Who pays the compensation?
Compensation is paid by the insurer of the party at fault. For car accidents, this is the CTP Insurer of the vehicle at fault. For work injuries the claim is paid by WorkCover or the workers compensation insurer. Claims are is not made directly against individuals.
How much will it cost?We offer a unique ‘No Win. No Fee. No Catch’ promise, which means there are no upfront costs and you will never be left out of pocket. Fees are calculated on the amount of work done & will be explained before matter is opened.
How much is my claim worth?
The value of a claim depends on many factors such as severity of injury, liability, injury recovery progress & impact on future earnings. Two people with the same injury may have very different compensation figures. Our team will investigate your situation & get expert reports before providing estimates.
Are the any risks?
In short, no. Typically, ‘no win, no fee’ arrangements have some risks. For example, lose your case in court & you may be liable for the other sides costs. Our unique ‘No Win. No Fee. No Catch’ promise removes all risks. Nothing to pay us, or anyone else, unless we win.
