"costs" or “legal costs” are a reference to the professional fees and outlays (also called disbursements) that are involved in pursuing (or defending) a personal injury claim. Pursuant to legislation which governs personal injury claims in Queensland, there are circumstances in which there is a right for an injured party to recover some of their costs in pursuing their personal injury claim from the party that has caused their injury. In some exceptional cases, this legislation allows a party to recover all of their costs in pursuing their personal injury claim, however, this only occurs in very limited circumstances.
