How can this guide help me? 

On this page:

This guide can help you if there has been an accident and:

  • your vehicle or other property was damaged and you want to claim for the damage
  • you were involved and a claim is being made against you.

Is there a time limit?

Yes. You must make your claim within six years from the accident date. But it is usually easier to make a claim soon after the accident, while the evidence is fresh in the minds of your witnesses.

What if someone was injured in the accident?

If someone was injured in the accident and wants to claim compensation for injuries, you should talk to a lawyer quickly and get legal advice. This guide does not provide information on this topic.

Should I get legal advice?

Yes. This booklet contains general legal information, not legal advice. For legal advice about your problem, you need to talk to a lawyer. You can call Legal Aid Queensland on 1300 65 11 88 to get free legal information and advice.
