Generally, there are severe consequences if you provide a deceptive statement to the CTP insurer. Hence, it is best to seek experienced legal advice to achieve a successful outcome.

It is typical for the CTP insurer to appoint an investigator for your incident. This investigator will get statements from the vehicle drivers and any witnesses. They will probably ask you for a statement too. You must seek legal advice before speaking with your investigator. Your account must be truthful and accurate. How you word your account is significant to the outcome of your case.
First, you need an experienced solicitor to help you establish the other party’s liability. Proving liability is the heart of your legal matter and will play a part in determining your personal injury benefits. Time limits apply for seeking legal advice, so act now.

CTP Claims will settle at different times depending on individual circumstances. Every auto accident is different in the time they take to complete. Claims for minor injuries usually resolve more quickly than significant accidents or when there is doubt about who was at fault.
If the vehicle at fault is unregistered, there is no CTP insurer. In this circumstance, you can bring a claim against the State of Queensland’s Nominal Defendant. This statutory body was created under the Motor Accident Insurance Act 1994, enabling injured people to claim personal injury compensation. There are strict time limits to submit your case to the Nominal Defendant. Once you have lodged your claim, they will fund your medical costs while your car accident compensation claim progresses.
You can choose to represent yourself for your legal damages case. However, statistics demonstrate that people who choose to represent themselves in CTP claims against insurers, expecting to save money, are usually disappointed.
Data from the Motor Accident Insurance Commission reveals that those who filed their own claims on average received settlements of less than $10,000, while those with representation from a CTP claim lawyer achieved average payouts of around $90,000.
Be aware that once you speak with a law firm about lodging an accident claim, you have one month to start your case.
