Cycling Accident Compensation Lawyers
Are you a cyclist who has suffered an injury in an accident involving another vehicle? You may be entitled to compensation. The experts at The Personal Injury Lawyers have years of experience in cases dealing with cycling incidents, helping Australians fight for the compensation they deserve.
No win no fee cycling accident compensation lawyers
Being involved in a cycling accident is traumatic enough without having to worry about the cost of upfront lawyer fees. Thanks to our no win no fee policy, every Australian has access to the legal representation they need, no matter their financial situation. The no win no fee service means if you don’t win your compensation case, you don’t pay the legal fees accrued.
Am I eligible for a cycling accident claim?
This depends on the circumstances of your accident. Usually in Queensland, you are entitled to make a claim unless you are entirely at fault for an incident. If another party is at fault or partly responsible for the accident, you will be eligible to make a claim for at least part of the costs related to your injuries.
How long do I have to make a claim for my cycling accident?
Don’t leave it too late after your incident before you seek legal advice. Due to the strict time limits that apply to making a claim, we recommend getting in touch with a personal injury specialist as soon as possible.
What can I claim cycling accident compensation for in QLD?
Cycling accidents can happen anywhere at any time. Causes of cycling accidents that can be covered in Queensland include:
- Being “car-doored” (when a car door is opened without enough notice for a rider to avoid)
- Other road users failing to give way to the rider
- Collisions with another vehicle, a pedestrian, or property.
You can confirm whether or not your accident can be covered by speaking to a personal injury lawyer.
How can I make a claim for my cycling accident?
To make a claim for injuries sustained in a cycling accident, you will need to prove the incident was caused by or contributed to by another party. This could be with an eye witness or CCTV footage. Once you have done this, you will be able to make a claim against the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the other person that was involved in the accident. Queensland law also requires any accidents that result in injury to be reported to the police, so be sure to do this before making a claim.
How much does it cost to make a claim for cycling accident compensation in QLD?
The costs of your claim will depend on the circumstances of your case. Costs might include lodging forms or getting medical records. If you win your case and receive compensation, you are required to pay your legal professional for their services. In Queensland, legislation is in place to make sure all of your damages don’t end up in your lawyer’s pocket. Find out more about how legal fees are determined here.
Will I need to go to court for my cycling accident claim?
While most personal injury claims are settled outside of court, you may need to attend court as part of your claim process if:
- The CTP insurance provider is fighting liability of the driver of the vehicle they insure.
- You weren’t able to identify the other vehicle involved in the accident, so the claim must be made against the Nominal Defendant.
How long does it take to get cycling accident compensation in QLD?
These types of claims can take several months due to the number of different parties involved. In a case where a serious injury has been caused by a cycling accident where liability is difficult to establish, it can take longer than cases involving less serious injuries. To get an estimate on the length of your case, get in touch with us.
Who will pay my compensation?
Generally the CTP insurer of the party or parties at fault will pay out the compensation.
