Frequently asked questions about spinal injury accident claims

Even if you were partly responsible for the spinal injury, you may still be eligible for compensation.

To begin the claims process, make an official record of your spinal injuries by visiting a medical practitioner.

Spinal injury compensation claims can involve complex legal procedures.

To ensure you meet all the requirements, always have your case reviewed by a lawyer before taking any kind of legal action.

When you ask for a free consultation The Personal Injury Lawyers, we can tell you exactly how to lodge your claim and inform you of your legal rights.

Legal costs differ depending on the circumstances of your case. Fees are typically charged at a fixed rate, with the amount of work your claim requires influencing its total cost. If you’re worried that your legal fees may cancel out any compensation you’re awarded, there are laws in place to prevent this from happening. In Queensland, our no win no fee guarantee is designed to benefit the client. No matter how much your case costs to run, by law, you must receive the majority of damages.

There’s a chance you’ll need to go to court if doing so is deemed vital to your case’s outcome.

In court proceedings where your attendance isn’t required, your lawyer may attend on your behalf.

Our clients often avoid the court system entirely by reaching a settlement through litigation.

Seeking legal advice isn’t mandatory, though it’s highly recommended.

Before you think of representing yourself in court, keep in mind that working with a lawyer offers the following benefits:


  • Legal expertise – Trying to make sense of the legal system can be tricky. Lawyers deal with complex legislation on a daily basis, giving them the requisite knowledge to handle your case effectively.

  • Helpful resources – Personal injury lawyers can help you access resources associated with spinal injury claims, giving your case an advantage.

  • Improved odds – Representing yourself might seem like the cheaper option, but to give your claim the best possible chance of success, working with a lawyer is essential.


You’ll need to provide evidence of the other party’s liability. To build a strong case, this evidence should include items like photographs, medical records, police reports and eyewitness statements.

This can depend on the complexity of your spinal injury and the willingness of the other party to accept responsibility. The majority of spinal injury cases take at least a few months to settle.

Compensation amounts are influenced by several factors, including the total cost of out-of-pocket expenses and any pain and suffering you’ve had to endure as a direct result of your injury. After considering these factors, The Personal Injury Lawyers can help you identify an appropriate figure.

Yes, but under Queensland law, the legal cost can never exceed the majority of your compensation. This means that if your case is successful, you’ll receive most of the damages, with a smaller percentage being used to cover the cost of legal fees.

You may have to pay for some of the other party’s legal fees if you lose your spinal injury compensation claim, though you won’t have to pay for any of your own legal fees.
