No Win No Fee Lawyers. No Hidden Costs.
If you have been injured in a car accident or other motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to car accident compensation. Speak to a Cairns car accident lawyer today.
You are entitled to claim 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 result of a car accident. This is usually nine months from the date of the accident. It is important to ensure that you visit a doctor or hospital as soon as you start to experience any symptoms that could be a result of an injury from the accident.
If the vehicle was not insured or you are unable to identify the vehicle responsible for your injuries, the Nominal Defendant will be liable to pay any compensation you are entitled to. The Nominal Defendant is a statutory body established solely for the purpose of compensating people who are injured as a result of negligent driving by unidentified and/or uninsured motor vehicles.
