If you have been injured in a traffic accident you may be able to make a compulsory third party (CTP) claim for compensation.
Claims are typically available to people injured in accidents involving cars, trucks, buses and motorcycles whether as a driver, passenger, cyclist or pedestrian.
All vehicles registered in Queensland are required to have insurance supplied by a CTP insurer and most claims proceed against the CTP insurer of the vehicle at fault.
If an unidentified or unregistered vehicle was at fault a claim can still be made through the Nominal Defendant government insurance scheme. Strict time limits apply to such claims.
The CTP insurer cannot provide you with legal advice and it is critical that you consult a lawyer to ensure you are aware of the strict time limits that apply and the extent of your entitlements.
