Am I eligible for a boating accident compensation claim?

The specific circumstances of your boating accident will affect your entitlement to a claim, and thus the type of boating accident claim you are able to make.

In most cases in Queensland, if you were not the only party at fault for the boating accident, you will be eligible to make a claim to compensate at least some of the costs related to your injuries.


Both recreational and work-related boating accidents generally fall under public liability.

Recreational boat incidents that can cause injuries might include:


  • A collision with another vehicle

  • A fire aboard the boat

  • Flooding of the vessel


An example of a work-related boat incident that may lead to injury could include:


  • Injuries caused by a fall

  • Injuries caused by exposure to harmful chemicals

  • Injuries caused by work equipment

Do I have a set amount of time to claim for my boating accident injury?

Yes. It’s important to be aware of the strict time limits that apply to making a boating accident claim.

You should seek professional legal advice as soon as possible following your accident.


How do I make a claim for my boating accident?

If you want to make a claim for injuries sustained in a boating accident, you will be required to prove the accident was the fault of or contributed to by another party.

If you are able to show this, you will be able to make a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the vehicle at fault.


In most cases in Queensland, you will need to report the incident to the police before you lodge your claim.

Due to the time limits that apply to making a claim, it is important to discuss your case with a compensation lawyer as soon as possible.


How much does it cost to make a claim for boating accident compensation in Queensland?

The costs of making a claim change from case to case depending on the circumstances.

Possible costs might include lodging forms and obtaining medical records.


How much are the legal fees in a compensation claim for boating accidents in Queensland?

If your boating accident claim is successful and you get compensation, you will need to pay fees to your legal professional.

You can rest assured that all your compensation isn’t handed straight to your lawyer, though. 

Find out more about the legislation that is put in place in Queensland to ensure you receive your fair amount of damages.


Will I need to go to court for my boat injury accident claim?

While most claims are settled without needing to attend court, you may be required to go to court during your claim process if the CTP insurance provider of the driver of the vehicle you believe is responsible for the incident is denying liability.


Who will pay my boating accident compensation?

Generally, the CTP insurer of the party or parties at fault will pay out the compensation from your boating accident claim.


Am I able to represent myself for my boating accident claim?

It is possible to represent yourself in court, but it is not recommended unless you have a legal background.

It is best to have an experienced legal professional on your team in order to get the best possible outcome.
