Frequently Asked Questions

All injures from a car crash are covered, no matter if it is psychological or physical in nature.

Examples of common car crash injuries include:

  • Whiplash
  • Spinal injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Fractures
  • Upper and lower limb injuries
  • Amputation
  • PTSD

Please know that even if your injuries do not appear to be significant, you should always visit a GP. It is vital for you to have a medical professional to take a look at your injuries, before you think you have fully recovered. There might be some unforeseeable long-term side-effects if you choose to ignore your injuries.

We cannot give you a definite answer, because every claim is very individualistic.

The amount of compensation you can claim in Queensland will depend on:

  • How bad your injuries are
  • Your age
  • Your education and occupation
  • Your health condition at the time of the accident
  • The circumstances of the accident
  • How much you have lost and will lose in wages
  • How much care you need
  • How much money you have paid and will have to pay out of your own pocket
  • The ability and experience of your compensation lawyer

Once your injuries have been stabilized, you’ll need to see a doctor to understand the impact these injuries will have on your future work and enjoyment of life. This will usually involve visiting one or more medical specialists and them writing a report to support your claim.

An assessment of your situation is needed before any projections can be given. Settlements reflect the long term impact on your life so it’s worth remembering that large settlements are associated with long term or life altering injuries.

We offer a ‘No Win No Fee’ cost agreement for car crash claims.

This means that you are free from paying any upfront costs during the claim.

Our legal fees are only payable when the claim settled successfully.

We provide this legal cost framework so that everyone can have fair and equal access to justice.

Compensation is paid by the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurer of the at fault vehicle. The CTP Insurer will deal with everything.

The claim is not made directly against the at fault driver, meaning the driver will not need to pay out of pocket, nor will they have to find a lawyer to represent them.

For example, if you were injured as a passenger due to the fault of your partner who was driving, then you could make a claim against the CTP with no adverse implications on your partner.

Yes, there are strict time limits under Queensland law. Therefore, to ensure the success of your case, you must seek legal advice as soon as possible.

If you missed the time limit, your rights to pursue compensation may be lost. The benefit of hiring our compensation lawyer at Ascent Lawyers is that it becomes our responsibility to ensure the claim is lodged within the time limit and correctly.

How long your car crash claim will take in Queensland depends on various factors, such as:

  • how complicated your situation is
  • how serious your injuries are
  • what treatment you will need before your injuries will stabilise

Many car crash compensation claims can be finalised within 15 months, but more complex cases with multiple injuries can take longer.

Very few cases end up going to Court. The vast majority of car crash claims are settled before going to Court. We aim to keep the legal costs down and maximise your net recovery in a time efficient manner.

Yes, you can represent yourself. However, dealing with insurance companies can be difficult for someone who has no experience and limited time. Insurance companies are multi-million-dollar businesses that will settle your claim for as little as possible.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to Ascent Lawyers for my personal injury case back in 2019. All the lawyers demonstrated high level of professionalism throughout all the stages of engagement. Ascent Lawyers was not only able to provide tailored legal advice, but they had been extremely informative and transparent during the entire process. This is particularly extraordinary when you consider the no-win-no-fee business model for PI matters. My case, in the end, was concluded with excellent results. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the whole team for their hard-work and professionalism, as well as Kira and Mengpei's close involvement with my case. I think their 5-star google review record does not lie. I would also recommend this firm to anyone.
