- Other road users and car drivers failing to give way to the rider
- Collisions with another vehicle, a pedestrian, or property
How do I begin to make a bicycle accident compensation claim?
To begin to make a claim for injuries sustained in a cycling accident, you will need to prove the incident was caused by or contributed to by another party.
This could be with an eye witness or CCTV footage. Once you have done this, you will be able to make a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the other person that was involved in the accident.
Queensland law also requires any accidents that result in injury to be reported to the police, so be sure to do this before making a claim.
To get an idea of how much you get for your claim, once again our Bicycle accident compensation calculator can give you an approximate estimate.
Don’t leave it too late after your cycling incident before you seek legal advice.
Due to the strict time limits that apply to making a claim, we recommend getting in touch with a personal injury specialist as soon as possible.
This depends on the circumstances of your cycling accident.
Usually in Queensland, you are entitled to make a claim unless you are entirely at fault for an incident.
If another party is at fault or partly responsible for the accident, you will be eligible to make a claim for at least part of the costs related to your cycling injuries.
The costs of your claim will depend on the circumstances of your case.
Costs might include lodging forms or getting medical records. If you win your case and receive compensation, you are required to pay your legal professional for their services.
In Queensland, legislation is in place to make sure all of your damages don’t end up in your lawyer’s pocket.
While most personal injury claims are settled outside of court, you may need to attend court as part of your claim process if:
- The CTP insurance provider is fighting liability of the driver of the vehicle they insure.
- You weren’t able to identify the other vehicle involved in the accident, so the claim must be made against the Nominal Defendant.
These types of claims can take several months due to the number of different parties involved.
In a case where a serious injury has been caused by a cycling accident where liability is difficult to establish, it can take longer than cases involving less serious injuries.
To get an estimate on the length of your case, get in touch with us.
Generally the CTP insurer of the party or parties at fault will pay out the compensation.
