Motorcycle Compensation – Accident Lawyers Brisbane Services
Unfortunately, motorcycle riders are a particularly vulnerable group on our roads and accidents do occur. If you’ve been in a Brisbane motorcycle accident that you were not at fault for, you may be entitled to compensation with help of our accident lawyers Brisbane based team.
This generally applies if you are either the rider or passenger on a motorcycle or scooter and are injured in the accident. It can also be claimed by the dependents of a person who is killed in a motorcycle accident.
We’re very experienced in compensation for these situations and can help you win the compensation you deserve.
What could be compensated?
As a result of your Brisbane motorcycle accident, you may be eligible for compensation for:
- Pain and suffering caused by the accident
- Loss of wages, superannuation or ability to earn money in the future
- Medical expenses for the injury
- Funeral expenses (where the injured person has died).
Compensation can also apply to long term considerations, such as:
- Disability or nursing services
- Travel to and from medical appointments
- Home and vehicle modifications
- Retraining for work
- Cost of legal fees.
The Process of Making a Compensation Claim
To kick off the process, get in touch to book your obligation-free first consultation. There are a few different ways to go about your claim, including road accident compensation, workers’ compensation, public liability claim and Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) under your superannuation.
It’s important to note there are time limits in place for submitting your claim. It depends on where you live and the circumstances surrounding the accident, but these time frames can be as little as 28 days, so be sure to get in touch early.
From initial consultation to receiving your compensation payment usually takes approximately one to three years. This takes into account the time it may take your motorcycle accident injuries to stabilise and whether or not the insurer acknowledges fault.
