      How Much Compensation Do You Get for a Car Accident in Brisbane?

      The value of car accident compensation is tailored to the individual and the following circumstances they are dealing with. Rather than providing a particular lump sum allowance, Queensland has a common law system for car accident claims which differs from one circumstance to another. No two individuals will have the same injury and at the same place. For instance, a trained surgeon may lose a finger during a car accident and cannot work due to the injury, resulting in derailed career. However, an office worker suffering from a similar injury may have to face only financial constraints. The individual assessment process in car accident compensation makes providing even general information on accidents challenging and complex. According to a data recorded by the Motor Accident Insurance Commission, the average car accident compensation – based on individual injury category – is:

      • For minor injuries – $62,800
      • For moderate injuries – $146,400
      • For serious injuries – $357,600
      • For severe injuries – $928,500
      • For critical injuries – $2,378,100

      To determine the possible compensation you may receive for your claim, always speak to a qualified and experienced personal injury lawyer. The time limit may change and impact your right to claim. Speaking to a personal injury lawyer at an early stage will ensure the protection of your rights. Our team of personal injury lawyers can provide their legal assistance with car accident compensation QLD and help determine the possible claim amount you may receive over your injury.

      How Long After a Car Accident Can You Claim Brisbane?

      Car accidents are unfortunately common in Queensland and thousands are injured due to the negligence of the driver or at-fault third party. When injured due to someone else’s driving negligence, individuals can claim car accident compensation. There is a three-year time limit for initiating a compensation process when suffering from injury. However, individuals must commence their claim procedure as soon as possible to avoid delay.

      While individuals have three years to proceed with a compensation claim, they have to abide by the legal time limit and inform the at-fault third party about the car accident claims. The shortest time limits are:

      • Nine months after the road accident or suffering injuries
      • One month after practicing law and acting the claim on your behalf

      If you’re injured in a hit-and-run accident, you can still claim compensation from the Nominal Defendant. Suppose you cannot identify the at-fault drive. In this case, you must provide notice to the Nominal Defendant within three months of the claim process.

        What To Do After A Car Accident

        What you do after a car accident can affect what you can recover when you claim compensation for injuries or damages. Immediately after a motor vehicle accident, you should take the following steps:

        • Collect information from those involved in the accident and who witnessed the accident.
        • Seek medical attention immediately.
        • If it is possible, advise the police of your accident. If you are unable to report the accident immediately to the police, you should do so as soon as you are able to (if the police do not attend the scene).
