What type and how much will depend on the circumstances of the accident, and which party was at fault. We can help you calculate the amount due or you can get a rough idea via our compensation calculator.

Frequently asked questions about motorbike injury compensation claims
If you were partly at fault, then you may still be eligible to receive compensation. 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 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.
Also, of course, if you win and receive compensation, you will be required to pay fees to your legal professional.
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.

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 in the accident, so the 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.
Making a claim after a bike accident involves a fair number of steps and you should be aware that there are strict time limits that apply to motorcycle accident compensation claims.
