FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Yes, strict time limits apply to motor vehicle accident claims in Queensland. Because of this, it’s best to speak to one of our expert lawyers when practicable* to ensure your entitlements are fully protected.
*It’s important to put your health first. Once you have received advice regarding your injuries, you should then consider your options for any car accident injury claims.
We understand that car accident injuries can severely impact your wellbeing, your family, and your ability to earn an income.
At an early stage and without all the necessary evidence, it is impossible to estimate an accurate entitlement to compensation.
Once your injuries have stabilised, our motor accident claims lawyers will calculate your entitlements based on updated information and medical evidence. Depending on your situation, you may be eligible to seek compensation for various heads of damages:
Pain and Suffering
- You will be eligible to claim damages for the injury sustained, the interruption of your enjoyment of life, and the general impact the injury and the symptoms have on you.
Treatment and rehabilitation costs
- You may be eligible to have these costs funded by the insurer. Our team can help organise this to ensure you aren’t out-of-pocket while we continue the motor vehicle injury claims process.
Lost income and superannuation contributions
- If you have been unable to work due to injury, this will be included in your car accident injury claim, as well as a claim for loss of income and superannuation contributions into the future caused by any incapacity for work.
Future out of pocket expenses
- If your injuries require ongoing medical attention, medical treatment, or other expenses, you may be able to recover the costs. In order to do this, the evidence will have to support a connection between the need for the expense and the injury.
Home modifications or specialised equipment
- If you have paid for out of pocket expenses, these will be included in your car accident injury claim.

With our team of expert motor vehicle accident lawyers, Queensland clients count on Gouldson Legal to resolve claims as efficiently as possible. However, it is important to remember that every claim is as individual as the person making it.
When it comes to car accident injury claims, numerous variables can shorten or prolong the time it takes for decisions to be made or the claim to be finalised. To speed up the process, ensure you lodge a claim as soon as possible and keep accurate and detailed records at hand.
Yes, you may be eligible for a claim if you weren’t driving. If you were the passenger in a vehicle, a cyclist riding a bike or even a pedestrian on the road and injured in a car accident, you may have grounds for a compensation claim.
The compensation you receive can help cover expenses like loss of wages, physio, occupational therapy, medication and any ongoing rehabilitation costs.
No, you are not required to hire a lawyer when filing for compensation. It is completely at your discretion whether you enlist the services of a legal representative. If you wish to file a claim yourself, you are completely free to do so.
However, the legislation and processes around motor vehicle accident compensation claims in Queensland are complicated and may be unclear. Moreover, if you are trying to focus on your recovery, the legal rigmarole may be an added stress you don’t need.
At the end of the day, it’s up to you, but we recommend getting an expert on your side.
Compensation is paid by the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurer of the at-fault vehicle. That insurer will deal with everything, and the compensation will come from them – not out of the other driver’s pocket.
