Comprehensive Overview of Adam’s Motorcycle Accident and Resulting Life Changes

Adam was commuting to his job when he lost control of his motorcycle due to an oil slick on the road. The accident resulted in him landing on his right knee, while also twisting his right ankle and shoulder. The crash aggravated a pre-existing arthritic condition in his right knee and ankle, worsening his overall health.

Unable to manage his original work duties due to his injuries, Adam resigned to seek lighter employment. He found a part-time position as a delivery driver, but this employment came to an end after just 10 weeks. Adam has since struggled to find suitable part-time or sedentary work that accommodates his physical limitations.

Complicating his situation, Adam developed a major depressive episode. This emotional toll is directly attributed to the chronic pain he experiences, along with the limitations in movement and function.

The case ultimately settled for $185,000, serving to compensate Adam for his physical injuries, loss of income, and emotional suffering.

The claim process on Adam's Motorcycle Accident


Make insurance or compulsory third party insurance (CTP) claim

In Queensland, motor vehicles are required to have ‘compulsory third party insurance‘ (CTP). Your Motorcycle Accident Lawyers will initiate your claim with your insurer or the at-fault party’s motor vehicle insurer.


Contact us to set up your no-obligation initial appointment.

At the initial consultation, we’ll get more details on your situation and then investigate insurance coverage. We’ll also explain our client and No Win No Fee agreement.


Investigation & gathering evidence

Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers will investigate and gather evidence while you recover from your injuries.

After that, the Motorcycle Accident Lawyers will brief medical specialists to examine you and provide expert evidence reports. From those reports, we will formulate how the injury has impacted you and your family at work and at home.


Attendance at informal settlement meeting

Our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers will also formulate your damages demand and appoint an out of court meeting to negotiate the resolution of your claim settlement.


Case settled or court proceedings

Statistically, more than 97% of compensation claims are settled out of court. In many cases, the claim is resolved successfully during the informal settlement meeting, and you will receive compensation to which you are entitled.

In rare cases, if your claim has not been resolved at this stage, our Motorcycle Accident Lawyers will take it further and help you get the compensation to which you are entitled according to law.
