What other questions do you have about making a Bus Accident Claim?

After a bus accident, follow these steps:

  • Seek medical attention immediately.
  • Report the accident to the police and obtain a copy of the police report.
  • Document any damages and injuries with photographs and notes.
  • Gather contact details of any witnesses and the bus driver.
  • Keep all medical records, bills, and any expenses related to the accident.
  • Consult a personal injury lawyer specialised in bus accident claims for guidance and representation.

Yes, there are time limits to file a bus accident claim in Brisbane. Typically, you have three years from the date of the accident to initiate a claim. However, there are exceptions to this rule. It’s vital to consult a lawyer as soon as possible to ensure you don’t miss any deadlines.

To ensure that you meet all necessary deadlines, we recommend working closely with a dedicated team like Best Injury Lawyers, who can provide expert guidance and timely assistance throughout the CTP claim process.

To maximise your entitlements:

  • Preserve evidence, including photographs and witness testimonies.
  • Attend all recommended medical treatments and keep detailed records.
  • Avoid settling or discussing your claim with insurers without consulting your lawyer.
  • Engage a personal injury lawyer familiar with bus accident claims in Brisbane to represent and guide you through the process.

Our team can help identify all potential areas of compensation, gathering the requisite evidence and building a strong case to secure the maximum entitlements for you.

The compensation amount varies depending on the severity of injuries, medical expenses, loss of earnings, pain and suffering, and other factors. Each case is unique. A personal injury lawyer can evaluate your case details and provide an estimated compensation value.

The duration of a bus accident claim varies based on the case’s complexity, the severity of injuries, and the clarity of liability. While some claims may be resolved in a few months, others might take several years. Consulting a personal injury lawyer can provide a more accurate timeline for your specific case.

The types of damages you can recover, include:

  • General damages – for pain and suffering;
  • Past and future loss of wages;
  • Loss of superannuation;
  • Past and future medical expenses;
  • Other past and future out of pocket expenses;
  • The cost of past and future care; and
  • Legal costs.

We know it can be overwhelming to know which firm to trust with your road accident claim, there’s a lot of us out there! We also know it can sound a little biased when we tell you to choose Best.

There are a few reasons we think you should choose Best as your Bus Accident Claim lawyers:

  1. We hire the Best people: our team aren’t only some of the sharpest legal minds in Queensland (no really, we win awards for it) but they’re also genuinely good people, who care about their clients. When we say we hire the Best, we mean we hire people who care about every case and every client, people you’d want fighting for you that you’d also happily catch up over a cuppa with.
  2. We will never leave you out of pocket: how so?
    • No Win, No Fee. Forever. You will only be charged if we win your case, so you can rest easy that we will be doing everything we can to put you in a better place than when you started your claim with us.
    • 30% Fee Cap. Some firms take around 50% of your compensation claim, we cap at 30% +GST to cover our fees (so even if our fees are more than that, we won’t charge you for it).
    • We cover out-of-pocket expenses. There are necessary expenses that must be incurred to successfully run your claim, because we want you to focus on your recovery and not the cost of your case. We will cover the cost for outlays needed to run your case, and you will only be expected to pay for these if your case is successful (these will be added as a part of your compensation claim, for the insurer to pay for).
  3. We take on cases other firms won’t, and we win them: we have a history of taking on claims other firms won’t, because we’re not afraid of hard work and because we know the difference a successful claim will make to you and your life.
