Some General Guidelines
From the latest collated data, according to the Queensland Government’s Motor Accident Insurance Commission, the average compensation payout for motor vehicle accident claims in Queensland in 2019 was $58,984.
This includes compensation for medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.
For other types of personal injury claims, such as slip and fall accidents or workplace injuries, the average settlement amount can vary widely depending on the circumstances of the case. In general, the more severe your injuries and the greater the impact on your life, the higher the compensation payout is likely to be.
