Frequently asked questions about motorcycle injury compensation claims
If you were partly at fault, then you may still be eligible to receive for your motorcycle accident settlement. However, the amount you receive may be less than what it would be if you were not at fault at all.
If you were wholly at fault, then under Queensland legislation you are not eligible to receive compensation for any injuries you suffer.
This rule varies from state to state though – for example, in New South Wales, you may be able to receive compensation under an accident notification claim.
Be sure to check the rules and regulations in the state you live in or just contact us to speak with our experienced motorbike accident claims solicitors for clarification.
Costs involved in each claim may vary depending on what the circumstances are. Potential costs may involve lodging forms or obtaining medical records as evidence to support your motorcycle lawsuit.
Also, of course, if you win and receive compensation, you will be required to pay fees to your motorbike accident lawyer.
Don’t worry though – legislation is in place to ensure all your deserved compensation doesn’t go straight to your lawyer.
When accounting for the different parties and time limits involved in these types of claims, the process can stretch for several months.
Straightforward cases can often be resolved much more quickly than more complex ones where fault is difficult to determine.
If you need an estimate on how long your case could take, it is wise to contact a motorcycle accident injury lawyer, as they will have a thorough understanding of the timelines and requirements of your claim for car or motorbike accident compensation.
It’s rare, and we can often attend in place of you but you may need to attend court as part of your claim process.
Reasons for your claim to be addressed in court may be:
- The CTP insurance provider is fighting liability of the driver of the vehicle they insure
- You were unable to identify the other vehicle involved, so the motorcycle accident insurance claim must be made against the Nominal Defendant
While you could represent yourself in court, unless you have a legal background, it can quickly get very complex and is not a recommended course of action.
Having a professional motorcycle attorney on your team can help ensure you don’t miss any essential deadlines and that all avenues of compensation are explored, making sure you can get the best result possible.
