What other questions do you have about making a CTP claim?

A CTP claim is a compensation claim made through the Compulsory Third Party insurance scheme, which is mandatory for all registered vehicle owners in Queensland. This insurance covers compensation payments for individuals injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident, including drivers, pedestrians, cyclists, and passengers.

To claim CTP insurance in QLD, you need to report the accident to the police and then file a claim with the relevant CTP insurer, providing necessary details including accident report, medical reports, and any other required documentation. It is beneficial to seek legal advice from Best Injury Lawyers to ensure the success of your claim, as we can guide you through the intricate process and help collate the necessary evidence.

Yes, in Queensland, you may still be able to get a CTP claim settlement even if you were at fault in the accident. It is, however, generally more challenging to secure compensation in such cases.

It is advisable to consult with an experienced CTP claim lawyer from Best Injury Lawyers to understand the nuances of your specific situation and explore the best possible avenues for claiming compensation.

You can claim various types of compensation under CTP insurance, including medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, loss of income, and pain and suffering. It is crucial to consult with a legal expert at Best Injury Lawyers to understand the full range of compensation you are entitled to.

Yes, whiplash injuries can be covered in a CTP claim. It is one of the common injuries reported in road accidents.

To substantiate your claim, it is vital to have appropriate medical documentation detailing the extent of your whiplash injury. Our team at Best Injury Lawyers can assist you in gathering the necessary evidence and presenting a robust case to secure compensation for your whiplash injury.

Yes, there are time limits imposed on CTP claims. The formal CTP claim should typically be lodged within nine months of the accident, or one month from your first consultation with a lawyer.

However, there can be variations based on the specifics of your case, including the extent of the injuries sustained. There is a 3 year time limit to file court proceedings.

If you don’t know the identity of the other vehicle, there is a strict 9 month time limit to make a claim against the Nominal Defendant.

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.

Ensuring that you receive everything you are entitled to in a CTP claim involves several crucial steps.

Firstly, seek immediate medical attention and keep detailed records of all treatments and expenses incurred. Secondly, consult with a professional personal injury lawyer, such as the experts at Best Injury Lawyers, to navigate the complex legal landscape.

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 duration of a CTP claim can vary significantly based on the complexity of the case, the extent of the injuries, and the efficiency of the involved parties. Generally, it can take anywhere from a few months to several years to settle a CTP claim. Our lawyers at Best Injury Lawyers work diligently to expedite the process and secure a favourable outcome as quickly as possible.

Determining the exact amount of compensation you can receive is complex, as it heavily depends on the specifics of your individual case, including the severity of your injuries, the impact on your ability to work, and the expenses you have incurred.

Generally, compensation can cover medical and rehabilitation costs, loss of earnings, and non-economic losses such as pain and suffering. At Best Injury Lawyers, we offer personalised consultations to assess your case thoroughly and provide a realistic estimation of the potential compensation. Our goal is to secure the maximum compensation possible to support your recovery and restore quality of life.

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 CTP 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.
