Motor Vehicle Accident Claims & Compensation
Motor vehicle accidents are common and can be extremely distressing. Not only can they cause serious injuries, but the financial hardship resulting from loss of income and medical bills can be particularly challenging. Brisbane Injury Lawyers provides a full range of legal services for motor vehicle accident injury claims.
Issues to Consider When Claiming Compensation
Accidents involving cars, motorbikes, trucks – or any other vehicle that can be registered – are classified as motor vehicle accidents. To claim compensation for a motor vehicle accident, you will need to prove that you were injured or suffered financial loss as a result of the accident and that you were not at fault.
If you were a driver, passenger, pedestrian, or cyclist involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may be able to make a compensation claim for:
- Physical injuries;
- Psychological stress and related medical conditions;
- Medical costs, including wheelchairs and in-house medical facilities;
- Permanent or temporary disability;
- Continuing medical treatment, rehabilitation, physiotherapy, and similar considerations;
- Loss of income, future income, and/or career prospects, and;
- Additional compensation for related matters affecting you or your family.
The Compensation Claim Process
Compensation claims can be very complicated and lengthy. Trying to navigate insurance companies and keep on top of the necessary paperwork can be overwhelming. Many claimants – already under significant stress from injuries – may experience additional problems, including:
- Medical costs;
- Financial hardship;
- Problems coping with daily personal needs, and;
- Physical support issues related to injuries.
The best way to manage these issues is to get legal support and assistance in making a claim. Our lawyers will guide you through the process and help you decide whether to pursue your claim through a negotiated out of court settlement, or through court action.
How We Help?
Negotiation is required for all compensation claims prior to court action. It is often a more efficient way of claiming compensation. Settling out of court covers all aspects of compensation claims, including ongoing costs. Our expert personal injury lawyers will provide professional advice and guide you through the negotiation process. They will fight to get the most out of your claim and the payout you deserve.
Court action is generally not required, with the majority of claims being settled through negotiation with the insurer. If you do require representation and advice relating to court action, talk to our team. Brisbane Injury Lawyers can generally finalise basic traffic accident claims in 12-18 months.
