Frequently Asked Questions About Motorbike Injury Compensation Claims
If The Motorbike Accident Was My Fault Can I Still Make A Claim?
If you were partly at fault, then you may still be eligible to receive compensation. However the amount you receive may be less than what it would be if you were not at fault at all.
If you were wholly at fault, then under Queensland legislation you are not eligible to receive compensation for any injuries you suffer.
This rule varies from state to state though – for example, in New South Wales, you may be able to receive compensation under an accident notification claim.
Be sure to check the rules and regulations in the state you live in or just contact us for clarification.
What Costs Are Involved When Making A Claim For Compensation?
Costs involved in each claim may vary depending on what the circumstances are. Potential costs may involve lodging forms or obtaining medical records.
Also, of course, if you win and receive compensation, you will be required to pay fees to your legal professional.
Don’t worry though – legislation is in place to ensure all your deserved compensation doesn’t go straight to your lawyer.

- You were unable to identify the other vehicle involved in the accident, so the claim must be made against the Nominal Defendant.
