No Win No Fee. No Hidden Costs
If you have been in a car accident on a road in Cairns, it is likely that you are entitled to car accident compensation. This is usually paid by the Compulsory Third Party ("CTP") Insurer of the vehicle that was involved in the accident.
If the vehicle was not insured or you are unable to identify the vehicle responsible for your injuries, the Nominal Defendant (a statutory body established solely for the purpose of compensating people who are injured as a result of the negligent driving of unidentified and/or uninsured motor vehicles) will be liable to pay any compensation you are entitled to.
You are entitled to compensation irrespective of whether you were:
- A driver of a vehicle;
- A passenger of a vehicle;
- A pedestrian;
- A cyclist; or
- A family member of someone killed in an accident.
In Queensland, there are strict time limits associated with making a compensation claim for injuries that have been suffered as a consequence of a car accident. This is usually 9 months from the date of the accident.
If you are unsure whether you are entitled to compensation or if you would like our help to make a car accident claim, please feel free to contact one of our car accident lawyers in Cairns for a free initial no-obligation consultation.
We will arrange a face to face meeting (at our Cairns office or your home) or an over the phone car accident claim assessment.
If you have been unable to work due to illness, disability, or an injury you may be entitled to claim compensation through your superannuation fund via a total and permanent disability (“TPD”) claim.
