How much compensation can I receive after a motorbike accident in Queensland or WA?
The amount of compensation you are entitled to depends on the nature of your case.
Typically, compensation can vary according to:
- how bad your injuries are,
- your age,
- how much you have lost and will lose in wages,
- how much care you need,
- how much you have paid out of your own pocket,
Damage to your motorbike or contents on the motorbike can generally be claimed through your own insurance provider. It’s possible that in some cases the insurer will agree to pay for some or all of the costs for your ongoing treatment, so that you’re not out of pocket while you’re waiting for the claim to be finalised.
