Do I have a Property Damage or Compensation Claim?

If you have been a rider of a scooter or moped who has been injured in an accident in Queensland that is not your fault, or only partly your fault, you have a right to claim compensation pursuant to Queensland laws.

If you are a pillion passenger on a scooter or moped who has been injured in an accident in Queensland regardless of fault, 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 vehicle that caused or contributed to the accident is unknown, such as where there is a hit and run accident or an accident caused by an unknown vehicle that has left hazardous materials or substances on the roadway such as oil or fuel.

Time limits to claim

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 scooter accident claims different?

If you have ever been hit by another vehicle when riding a scooter or moped you will understand how much pain is involved and the severity of the injuries you can suffer, particularly when you are not wearing much protective gear.

At ILQ we take a special interest in helping scooter and moped riders who have been injured as a result of the careless actions of other motorists who cause these accidents.

When you are travelling on 2 wheels rather than on 4, you are also more susceptible to accidents caused by hazardous materials and substances being left on the roadway from other vehicles, such as oil or fuel.

At ILQ we are very experienced in making successful claims against the Nominal Defendant where riders and passengers have been injured due to vehicles leaving hazardous materials and substances on the roadway – even when the identity of the vehicle that caused the hazard is unknown or where there is a hit and run scenario.

Because the professionals who work at ILQ are experienced bike riders we understand and take a special interest in scooter and moped riders who have been injured on Queensland roads.

For the last 17 years our professional staff have been assisting scooter and moped riders and other motorists to obtain the best medical and rehabilitation treatment available to help them recover from their injuries and to assist them maximise the amount of compensation claimable to compensate them for the pain, suffering, expenses and economic loss they have suffered because of the careless actions of other people on the roadway.

No Win No Fee

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

Our ILQ No Win No Fee scheme is available for all scooter and moped 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 scooter or moped accident are suffering financially due to not being able to work or working on a reduced hours basis because of the adverse affects of their injuries.

That is why we conduct all of our claims on a No Win No Fee basis.

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

Why use a Lawyer?

If you have been a rider or a passenger that has been involved in a scooter or moped 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 scooter or moped accident in Queensland, it is critical that you obtain advice from a lawyer who is very experienced in scooter or moped accident claims to ensure that you are aware of all the benefits available to you.

As ILQ are very experienced in all kinds of scooter and moped accident claims, we make sure that you recover everything that you are entitled to at law.

And because ILQ 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 most cases a significant proportion of your legal fees and outlays can also be recovered from the insurance company.

What if my scooter 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.
