From Jan 1 to Apr 30, 2023, Queensland recorded 2,617 hospitalised casualties from crashes (Dept. of Transport and Main Roads – Road Crash Report).

How much time do I have to make a claim?

Typically, you have a three-year window from the date of injury to commence a claim. However, if the accident involves an unregistered or unidentified vehicle, stricter time frames are enforced. To preserve your right to claim, it’s crucial to lodge a compliant claim within nine months of the accident.

What are my rights and what am I entitled to?

Your accident has had a significant impact, and getting the right support is crucial. With strict time limits in place, it’s essential to reach out to us promptly to discuss your claim.

Who is eligible to claim compensation?

Compensation claims aren’t limited to drivers!
Here’s a list of individuals who can also claim if injured by a motor vehicle:

Not at fault drivers

Innocent drivers are individuals involved in motor vehicle accidents where they are not responsible for causing the collision. Despite their lack of fault, they may still suffer injuries or damages and are entitled to pursue compensation for their losses.

Vehicle passengers in accidents

Passengers in a vehicle involved in an accident are individuals who were riding in a car, truck, or other vehicle at the time of a collision. They may sustain injuries or suffer damages as a result of the accident, and like drivers, they have the right to seek compensation for their losses, regardless of fault.


Pedestrians and cyclists, vulnerable road users, may encounter accidents with vehicles or obstacles, resulting in injuries. Whether walking or cycling, they have rights to seek compensation for injuries caused by negligent drivers, hazardous road conditions, or other factors.

A passenger on public transport

A passenger on public transport travels via buses, trains, trams, or subways, relying on these systems for commuting, leisure, or other purposes. In case of accidents or incidents, they may sustain injuries, qualifying them to seek compensation for losses.
