Motor Vehicle Accident

Have you been Injured in Queensland in a road accident?

Read why it is important to know your rights & what your entitlements are. Learn why delaying your claim can be the biggest killer to receiving compensation.

Thousands of hard-working Queenslanders are injured on the road each year. If you are unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident, it is natural for your sole focus to remain on your property damage.

How much time do I have to make claim?

Generally, you have up 3 years from the date of injury to start a claim.

However, if the accident involved an unregistered or unidentified vehicle, there are strict time frames that apply.

A claim must be lodged and compliant within 9 months of the accident or you could lose your rights to claim.

What are my rights and what am I entitled to?

Remember that you have been negatively impacted as a result of your accident and getting the right type of support is important.

Strict time limits apply so it’s important that you contact us immediately to discuss your claim.


Here’s a shortlist of things you may be entitled to:

  • Funded Rehabilitation and Medical treatment ie-Physiotherapy

  • Reimbursement of out-of-pocket expenses ie medication, parking etc.

  • Mileage for any travel directly relating to your accident

  • Compensation

Is there a time limit for filing a claim? 

Yes, there are strict time limitations that apply to making a CTP claim


If the other vehicle involved is unidentified, a claim must be lodged and compliant within 9 months or you will lose your rights to claim.


Delaying the lodgement of your claim can cost you thousands in lost rehabilitation costs and potential compensation.


If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in the past 3 years’ time is of the essence, strict time limits apply so it’s important that you contact us immediately.

Who can claim for compensation?

It's not just drivers that can claim for compensation!


Here’s a list of other people that are able to make a claim if they are injured by a motor vehicle.

  • Not at fault drivers

  • Passengers in a vehicle involved in an accident

  • Pedestrians

  • Cyclists

  • A passenger travelling on train, bus or any other form of public transport

Who pays my compensation?

Compulsory Third Party Insurer of the at-fault-driver.

What if I was injured while travelling to work and WorkCover have already paid for my medical expenses?

It’s WorkCover’s responsibility to cover you for any injury you may sustain during the course of your employment, this includes travel to and from work. It is perfectly normal for WorkCover to step in and fund treatment.

The CTP insurer however also has some obligations to also help fund treatment and potentially pay you compensation.

Many Queenslanders are unaware that they are also eligible for a CTP claim, making it so important to know your rights.
