Claiming for compensation after a motor vehicle accident in Queensland?

If you have been injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to compensation.

Compensation is generally paid by an insurance company or agency that manage these types of claims. These companies or agencies often seek advice from their own lawyers as to whether they should accept a claim, how they manage the claim and the amount of compensation to be paid.

If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident in Queensland, it is critical that you obtain advice from your own lawyer to ensure that you are aware of all the benefits available to you.

One of our experienced motor vehicle and car accident lawyers will be able to advise you of your chances of obtaining compensation.

By working with us:

  • You’ll know if your entitlement has correctly been assessed
  • You’ll be able to dispute the decision 
  • You’ll know what evidence you need and how to go about getting it
  • We’ll seek the best possible result, whatever the challenge

Our team has decades of combined experience in assisting those who have been injured in transport and motor vehicle accidents. We listen and understand the importance of your concerns.

We can help you lodge a motor vehicle claim and explore all avenues to help you achieve the best outcome possible.

The depth of our experience means that we are able to draw on the knowledge of our people and work towards the best possible outcome for you.

  • How will I pay for the legal fees?

    Slater and Gordon's No Win - No Fee* scheme is generally available for transport accident claims. This means you do not pay for professional fees unless your case is successful.

    The scheme is designed to help those whose financial circumstances might otherwise deny them access to legal representation.

    You will receive a document setting out the details of the scheme after your first appointment. We are not retained as your lawyers until the document is signed and return to us.

  • Making an additional claim

    If you have superannuation and sustain an injury, you may be able to access a lump sum payment through your policy. An experienced superannuation and insurance lawyer will assist you in identifying whether such benefits exist in your policy and submit an application on your behalf.  

    In addition, you may have a personal insurance policy, such as life insurance, income protection insurance, sickness and accident insurance, which may include provisions for compensation should you be injured in an accident.

  • Additional lump sum benefit

    Many superannuation funds provide coverage for a disability insurance benefit, often referred to as a Total Permanent Disability (TPD) benefit. This insurance cover, if provided under your superannuation, is a benefit additional to the contributions that you and/or your employer have made to your superannuation fund during the period of your membership. 

    Whether you can make a claim for a superannuation disability benefit will depend on a number of factors - particularly, whether this insurance cover is provided under your superannuation.

  • What are the time limits?

    In most cases strict time limits apply. It’s important to speak with us for independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity after your injury, to make sure your interests and rights are protected.
