Frequently Asked Questions

If you’ve been injured in a car accident as a driver, rider, passenger, or pedestrian, you may qualify for a Compulsory Third-Party insurance claim. AMK Lawyers are dedicated to helping you obtain the compensation and damages you’re entitled to. CTP insurance covers injuries resulting from motor vehicle accidents where negligence is established.

You can file a CTP claim if you have been injured in:

  • Car, truck, or other motor vehicle accidents
  • Motorbike, bicycle, or e-scooter accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents involving a vehicle
  • As a passenger in a car where the driver is at fault

In cases of fatal accidents, dependents may have the right to claim funeral expenses and loss of dependency. Please contact our motor vehicle accident lawyers for further advice.

Even if you were injured in a car accident involving an unidentified or unregistered vehicle in Brisbane, you still retain the right to pursue a Compulsory Third Party (CTP) claim. However, it’s important to note that the time limits for such claims are significantly shorter. In these instances, the Nominal Defendant, a state insurer, handles these claims and responds accordingly.

If you’re unsure about the identity or registration status of the vehicle involved in your accident, our team at AMK Lawyers can guide you through the process of filing a claim with the Nominal Defendant (state insurer). We understand the complexities involved in such cases and are here to ensure your rights are protected. We will help you with all aspects of the process.

Compulsory Third-Party (CTP) insurance is a mandated insurance policy for all vehicles in Brisbane. This insurance is included in vehicle registration, making it mandatory for many vehicle classes. In Brisbane, there are currently four licensed insurers:

AAI Limited (trading as Suncorp Insurance), Allianz Australia Insurance Limited, QBE Insurance (Australia) Limited, and RACQ Insurance Limited (RACQ withdrew from the CTP market in October 2023, but they continue to honour existing policies or those active at the time of the incident).

When you file a CTP claim, one of these insurers will handle your claim. They provide assistance covering physical and psychological injuries, offering compensation and coverage for treatment and related expenses.

You can initiate a claim by completing a Notice of Accident Claim Form and using the MAIC online Queensland CTP portal. However, consulting with an experienced lawyer is crucial to ensure your CTP claim is handled correctly.

Even minor errors can have a substantial impact on your rights and claim. AMK Lawyers, with their experienced personal injury lawyers and insurance expertise, are dedicated to securing the best outcome for you. Contact us to protect your interests and navigate your CTP claim effectively.

Making a CTP claim involves several key steps:

  1. Report the Accident: Report the accident to the police and obtain an accident report number.
  2. Seek Medical Attention: Seek medical treatment for your injuries and keep all medical records and receipts.
  3. Notify the Insurer: Contact the CTP insurer of the at-fault vehicle as soon as possible to notify them of your intention to make a claim.
  4. Lodge the Accident Claim Form: Complete and submit the necessary claim forms provided by the insurer. Include details of the accident, your injuries, and any expenses incurred.
  5. Investigation: The insurer will investigate the circumstances of the accident and assess your claim. They may request additional information or documentation.
  6. Assessment of Damages: The insurer will assess the damages you are entitled to, including medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
  7. Negotiation: Negotiate with the insurer for a fair settlement amount. Your legal representative can assist in ensuring you receive adequate compensation.
  8. Settlement: Once an agreement is reached, the insurer will offer a settlement amount. If accepted, this resolves the claim, and you receive compensation.
  9. Dispute Resolution: If there are disputes regarding liability or the settlement amount, mediation or court proceedings may be necessary.
  10. Closure: Once settled, the claim is closed, and you receive the compensation owed to you.

Throughout this process, it’s essential to have the support of experienced legal professionals who will ensure you know your rights and work to secure the maximum compensation you are eligible to receive.

You may be eligible to lodge a Compulsory Third Party (CTP) claim if the accident was not your fault and you were involved as a driver, passenger, rider, or pedestrian. Here are some scenarios where you might qualify to make a personal injury claim:

  • Driver or Passenger in a Motor Vehicle Accident: Whether in a single-car accident or a collision involving multiple vehicles.
  • Pedestrian or Cyclist Hit by a Vehicle: Includes incidents like being hit by a vehicle or its door opening.
  • Whiplash Suffered as a Passenger: Resulting from a car accident.
  • Rider of a Motorcycle, Bicycle, E-Scooter, or Skateboard: Injured due to a vehicle-related incident.
  • Injuries Caused by Road Hazards: Such as an oil spill or improperly secured items on another vehicle.
  • Fatal Injuries: Dependents may be entitled to claim funeral expenses and loss of dependency.
  • Minors Injured in Motor Vehicle Accidents: Claims can be made through a litigation guardian, like a parent.

Even if the accident involved an unidentified or unregistered vehicle, you still have the right to file a CTP claim, although time limits are stricter. The state insurer, the Nominal Defendant, handles claims in these cases.

If you’re considering a personal injury claim related to a motor vehicle accident, it’s advisable to seek legal advice from a knowledgeable car accident lawyer or personal injury law firm.
