Do I have a Personal Injury Claim?

If you have been injured while travelling on a bus or as result of being hit by a bus, you have a right to claim compensation pursuant to Queensland laws.

In many cases it is even possible to make a claim even when the identity of the bus or the bus driver that caused the accident is unknown.

Time limits to claim

If you have been injured as a result of an accident involving a motor vehicle please note that there are strict time limits and important procedural steps that apply to personal injury matters pursuant to the provisions of the Motor Accident Insurance Act 1994.

If you have been involved in an accident we recommend that you seek legal advice immediately as you may lose your right to claim for damages if you fail to act within the critical dates.

It is a good idea to start your claim as soon as possible as the longer you take to start your claim, the harder it is to gather the information and evidence required to prove your claim.

How are bus accident claims different?

Did you know that in Queensland you have a right to claim compensation for any injury you suffer when travelling as a passenger on a bus regardless of whether the bus driver was at fault or not.

If you have been injured as a pedestrian who has been hit by a bus you have a right to claim compensation pursuant to Queensland laws.

If you have been injured by a bus when driving a motor vehicle or travelling as a passenger in a motor vehicle , you also have a right to claim compensation pursuant to Queensland laws.

Accidents involving buses usually result in serious injuries being sustained by other drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike.

Over the years, our team at Injury Lawyers Queensland have been very successful at making personal injury claims for people who have been injured while travelling on buses and injured while a bus has entered a bus stop area.

In many cases it is even possible to make a claim even when the identity or registration number of the bus is unknown.

No Win No Fee

At Injury Lawyers Queensland we understand that not everyone is in a position to pay a lawyer for upfront advice. That is why at Injury Lawyers Queensland there are no upfront legal costs or outlays.

Injury Lawyers Queensland’s No Win No Fee scheme is available for all motor vehicle accident claims. This means you do not pay for legal fees or outlays unless your case is successful.

In most instances, people who have been involved in a motor vehicle accident are suffering financially due to not being able to work or working on a reduced hours basis because of the adverse effects of their injuries.

This is why we conduct all of our personal injury claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

In many cases, a significant proportion of your legal fees and outlays can be recovered from the insurance company.

Why use a Lawyer?

If you have been a driver, rider, passenger or a pedestrian that has been involved in a bus accident that is not your fault, or only partly your fault, you have a right to claim compensation in Queensland.

Because it is in the insurance company’s interests to try and limit the amount of compensation you can recover, they will not advise you what you can claim and what your claim is really worth.

Insurance companies have their own team of lawyers who do everything they can to try and reduce the amount of your claim.

Without legal representation you will be at a big disadvantage when dealing with the insurance companies and their lawyers.

If you are involved in a bus accident in Queensland, it is critical that you obtain advice from a lawyer who is very experienced in bus accident claims to ensure that you are aware of all the benefits available to you.

As Injury Lawyers Queensland are very experienced in all kinds of bus accident claims, we make sure that you recover everything that you are entitled to at law.

And because Injury Lawyers Queensland operates on a No Win No Fee basis, you don’t need to pay any legal costs or outlays until your claim is successfully finalised.

In many cases,  a significant proportion of your legal fees and outlays can be recovered from the insurance company.

What if my bus accident occurred while I was working or on my way to or from work?

If you were injured while you were working or on your way to or from work you still have the same rights to make a personal injury claim against the CTP insurer of the vehicle at fault. You also have the right to make a claim on WorkCover Queensland or your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer to pay for your medical treatment and your weekly wage while you are away from work.
