Common questions about Motorbike Accident Lawyers in Queensland & WA
Generally, the time limit is three years from the date the accident happened, but there can be exceptions to this. It’s important you seek legal advice straight away following any accident so you understand your rights and entitlements.
Legal costs depend on the amount of work required to resolve your claim, which in each case can be different.
The other driver or party at fault doesn’t typically pay anything out of their own pocket, their insurance company handles everything.
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.
