If you have suffered a quad bike accident, it can be devastating and a deeply troubling time for both the injured person and their family. Often, the injury can have permanent consequences and severely impact your quality of life.
Depending on the nature of the quad bike crash and the circumstances surrounding what happened, it’s possible that you may have a claim for compensation under law. Accessing this compensation can help to relieve financial stress on you and your family and in some cases help in getting you the right treatment for your injuries.

Do I have a quad bike accident claim?
Quad bike accident claims can be rather complex, and your rights and ability to claim compensation depend on the circumstances of the accident.
There may be a range of legal types of claims available to you, including the ability to make a Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) claim – which is a benefit you can claim under your superannuation if you are seriously injured.
Quad bike injury whilst working
If you sustained a quad bike injury whilst working, it’s possible that you may be able to make a claim under the workers’ compensation scheme. Assessing the merits of a case under this scheme involves many different factors, including where your accident occurred, who was operating the bike, who or what caused the accident and the severity of the injury itself.
Our lawyers are experts in workers’ compensation claims and if you have had a quad bike injury at work, we have the experience and personal touch to ensure you get the outcome you need.
Quad bike injury on the roads
If you have suffered a quad bike injury on the road, you may be entitled to make a claim under the motor vehicle scheme. The circumstances of the accident are important and every case is different, so it’s best you seek legal help from one of our experts in order to determine if you have a case under this area of law.
Our lawyers are experts in motor vehicle compensation claims and have acted for many people who have been injured on the roads whilst riding a quad bike.
Recreational quad bike injury
If you have suffered a quad bike injury when using the vehicle for entertainment or recreational use, you may still have a claim. The area of law that litigates against accidents that occur of this nature can fall under public liability law.
Our lawyers are public liability law experts who can assess your case and help you get the compensation you need.
What is the quad bike accident claims process?
The quad bike accident claims process can vary depending on what area of law the claim falls under. The below image gives a good indication of how the process generally works and how you can access compensation after your accident.
What can I claim quad bike accident compensation for?
No two quad bike accidents are the same, and what you can claim for really depends on a number of things, including:
- Your loss of earnings
- Your medical and hospital expenses
- Your pain and suffering
- Any help you have needed at home (paid or unpaid)
One of our lawyers will be able to let you know what you can claim for once they know a little bit more about your situation. In most cases a monetary value is placed on the gap between your life path before the quad bike injury, and your life path since.
