Motor Vehicle Accident Injuries

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident, it is essential to promptly seek legal advice as strict time limits are imposed on personal injury claims. If you do not act within the required time limits, your right to claim damages and personal injury may be statute-barred.

Here are some things you should do immediately following a motor vehicle accident in Queensland:

  1. If you or others have been injured in a vehicle accident you should immediately seek medical attention and obtain medical records from the doctors as this can be used later in your case.
  2. If the police did not attend the scene of the accident you should report it to your nearest police station.
  3. You must notify the relevant insurer of your injury claim for compensation within one month of receiving legal advice.


We recommend seeking legal advice from a motor vehicle accident lawyer prior to proceeding with a motor vehicle accident compensation claim. There are a lot of things you need to consider at this stage, and you will need sound advice about the types of compensation available to you.

Car Accident Claims In Brisbane And Queensland

Yes, but only if you were not the sole cause of the accident. If you can prove your injuries or financial losses were caused by a third party, you may be able to claim compensation. In cases where more than one party was at fault, the circumstances of the accident will determine the outcome of your compensation claim.

It can take several months for a motor vehicle accident claim to settle. However, our team of car accident lawyers at Sinnamon Lawyers will do everything they can to provide you with access to compensation sooner rather than later. After reviewing the circumstances of your case, we should be able to tell you how long your case will take to resolve.

Just as every motor vehicle accident is unique, so too are the amounts of compensation awarded in different cases. If you are unsure as to how much compensation you are entitled to, we can help you determine a realistic amount.

  • The amount of out-of-pocket expenses you have incurred
  • The costs involved with any ongoing care you require.

We can help you determine which of these claims you are entitled to.

The total cost of your claim will be determined by a combination of the legal fees and amount of work involved with your case. However, regardless of your claim’s total cost, our No Win No Fee service means you won’t be required to pay your legal fees if you aren’t awarded any compensation.
