Time Limits for Car Accident Claims

Queensland has strict time limits for making a car accident compensation claim after a traffic accident.

First, know that seeking immediate legal advice is the best chance of winning personal injury compensation. Below are the general deadlines, but be aware that the time limit for your case may differ, so ask a car accident lawyer (it’s free). When you know the details of the other driver, you must lodge a notice of accident claim form within:

  1. You have one from the date you first spoke with a lawyer about making a claim
  2. or nine months after the date of the accident, whichever comes first.

If the other motorist is unknown or uninsured, you must lodge a claim form with the QLD nominal defendant within nine months.

Failing to lodge a car accident claim or the Notice of Accident Claim Form within the legislated time generally means you can’t seek compensation through a CTP claim. There are some rare exceptions. It’s free to ask our Gold Coast lawyers if you qualify. Call Now: 1800 700 125

What is the accident claim process?

Understanding the personal injury claim process can be complex, depending on the circumstances of your road accident, e.g.

  • How many parties were involved in the accident?
  • Do the other drivers deny that they were at fault?
  • Is there an unknown driver, for example, in a hit-and-run accident

To successfully make a claim, you need thorough evidence like the following:

  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Medical records
  • Documentation of the scene
  • Proof of financial loss due to injury

Once you have hired an expert motor vehicle accident lawyer, they will start informal settlement negotiations with the insurer, allowing them to settle your compensation claim without going to court. Fortunately, Splatt Lawyers Gold Coast saves you substantial money by mediating 99% of claims to a successful conclusion without needing court action.

Lodging an insurance claim involves the following steps:

  1. Contact the insurer with photos, video, witness statements, a comprehensive description of the damages, and the other driver’s information.
  2. The insurer investigates the incident.
  3. They assess the extent of the damages.
  4. You could access a rental car based on the policy coverage while processing the claim.

When you collide with an unknown or uninsured driver, the car accident compensation claim process differs. However, you can still make a personal injury claim, but not against a third-party insurance company.

Instead, you lodge a case with the Queensland nominal defendant. This statutory body replaces the third-party insurer, so you can still collect fair compensation for your loss.

If this is your situation, please immediately contact an experienced car accident lawyer. Nominal defendant claims have short and strict time limits for lodging a personal injury claim.

Gold Coast Motor Vehicle Accident Claim FAQs

The severity of the injury, medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering are just a few of the variables that determine the average payout for personal injury claims in Australia.

For Queensland motor vehicle accident claims, payout values range from $59,000 for minor injuries to more than $1.6 million for critical injuries.

The at-fault party in a car accident in Queensland is the one who caused the accident due to their negligence by not taking reasonable care while driving. Sometimes, the type of collision and location of vehicle damage also help determine fault.

Learn who is at fault in a car crash >

When a car accident occurs, the person who caused the accident is responsible for the damage. If you were to blame, your insurer would pay for the damage when you had an approved claim. If the other driver was at fault, their third-party insurance company should fund the settlement.

If you’re not at fault in a car accident, you can seek damages from their third-party car insurance by collecting the other driver’s details and claiming against their insurance cover.

For car accident claims, a “no win no fee” arrangement means that clients pay no up-front legal fees or costs, and their lawyers receive a portion of the settlement when they have a successful outcome.
