No-one plans to be involved in a car accident let alone consider having to make a car accident claim to recover their losses. That means, no-one is prepared for the difficulties that can follow a serious collision. Fortunately, Brisbane based Lyons Compensation Lawyers have decades of experience in these types of claims and are here to support you through the legal steps that can be taken to compensate you for any losses you have incurred after being in a vehicle accident. 

Car accident legal claims are involved and technical and require a refined legal eye to ensure that all benefits available to you are paid without unnecessary delays. These types of claims can be more complicated if they happened when you were working or were on private property. Did you know that you can make a claim if you’ve had a motorbike crash, quad bike accident or truck accident ? As long as you’re not the ‘at fault’ driver, if you are injured due to nearly any type of motor vehicle you may have a claim to make so that you can be compensated for your losses.

Frequently Asked Questions

car accident claim lawyer BrisbaneIf you have suffered a physical or psychological injury following a serious vehicle collision, you may be eligible for motor vehicle accident compensation whether you are the driver or a passenger. As long as you are not the “at fault” driver, if a motor vehicle was involved in injuring you, then you may have the right to make a claim. In Queensland, car accident compensation extends to cover the following:   
  • Driver
  • Passengers
  • Motorcycle Riders
  • Cyclist
  • Pedestrian
  • Passenger on public transport
As with every legal claim there are complex laws and processes that must be adhered to and time limits that need to be met so that your claim is not barred. Lyons Compensation Lawyers will help you navigate your claim with ease, ensuring you understand the process from start to resolution.  Contact us  today if you’re in Brisbane or its surrounding suburbs to get a FREE and honest assessment of your potential car accident claim.
car accident claim lawyer BrisbaneIn Queensland there is a 3 year limitation on all motor vehicle accident claims. However you should lodge your claim as soon as possible, and ideally within 9 months of an accident (unless you have a good excuse for not doing that).  If you don’t bring a claim by the 3rd anniversary of the accident date, you will likely lose your right to make a compensation claim. The time limit is shorter if you are making a claim from the death of a loved one in a car accident. Although making a legal claim is probably not on your mind at that tragic time, it’s important to lodge your compensation claim as soon as possible after the fatal accident.  There are also strict time limits if you were unable to identify the vehicle that caused the accident (for example, in a hit and run accident). In that case, you must lodge a claim within 9 months to avoid losing your right to make a claim.

car accident claim lawyer BrisbaneUsually, following a car accident, it is necessary to lodge a claim through the at fault driver’s Compulsory Third Party insurance. You will be required to provide as much information as possible when making the claim plus a medical certificate. 

It is important that you:


  • Get the contact details of the “at fault” driver, 
  • If possible, get the details of the insurer of their vehicle; 
  • Have reported the incident to the police if they were not in attendance; and 
  • Have obtained a medical certificate (in the proper format) outlining the injuries you have sustained as a result of the accident.

We can help you gather all of this information and take these steps if you have not completed them yourself.  

The initial phase of lodging a claim is relatively painless, however as the claim moves through the assessment process you may find you need a lawyer on your side who understands the extensive legal requirements. Care must also be taken to ensure that your doctor lists all of your injuries and concerns in the initial medical certificate and that you complete the relevant claim form in the most detailed manner possible. As experienced compensation lawyers we take the time to make sure that all of the information needed is included so that you do not miss out on any compensation that you may be entitled to receive. A failure to take the time to do this at the start can affect the amount of compensation you will receive.

Lyons Compensation Lawyers will guide you through the experience and ensure that your best interests are represented. Our role is to advocate on your behalf, and fight for fair payment for the damage you have suffered.
