The majority of motor vehicle compensation claims can be completed by our Brisbane & Gold Coast accident compensation lawyers within 12-18 months. However, it can be longer for very complicated matters such as those involving multiple injuries.
Compensation is paid by the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurer of the vehicle at fault. The claim is not made directly against the driver at fault, meaning the driver will not be out of pocket, nor will they have to find a lawyer to represent them. The CTP Insurer will deal with everything.
We offer a ‘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.
If the at fault drivers identity is not known then you can still make a claim against the ‘Nominal Defendant‘ a statutory body established by the government for such a situation.
You can make a claim if you were injured as a passenger (even if you were in car with the at fault driver) or as another road user such as a cyclist or pedestrian.
