In Queensland, any person injured in a motor vehicle accident that was due to the fault of a driver is eligible to claim compensation.
Queensland operates on a Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme. The scheme provides owners, drivers, and passengers with unlimited liability coverage for personal injury caused by traffic accidents.
This grants passengers a right to seek monetary compensation from the person ‘at fault’ for the personal injury and other related losses. This is true regardless of whether it’s a friend, family, commercial drivers such as a taxi or Uber driver, or any other driver.
