Can I make a claim?
Quad bike accidents usually cause severe or fatal injuries and can be complex claims. Our experienced lawyers can help you find out if you have a claim.
Whether you're entitled to compensation will depend on a few things:
- which state you're in when the injury occurs
- if the quad bike has been registered
- whether the accident happened on a road, or if the accident happened on private property, if the property owner holds public liability insurance
- whether you're the driver or the passenger.
If someone you were dependent on is fatally injured in a quad bike accident, you may also be eligible for compensation.
Claims can be complex and cross a few areas of law, so it's best to seek legal advice. We can help to make this process as easy as possible for you. With expertise in these claims and a long history of successful cases, our lawyers are by your side to help reach the best possible outcome.
We will proactively work to get your rehabilitation costs covered as soon as possible, working closely with your healthcare providers. Our first priority is seeking funding for your treatment so you are not out of pocket and can access the rehab you need for recovery.

Types of compensation
Depending on where the injury happened and how severe the injury is, there are different options available to claim compensation, including:
- workers' compensation
- road accident compensation
- Total and Permanent Disability (TPD), part of your superannuation insurance
- public liability claim
What can be covered?
This also depends on the state and situation, but generally, you may receive compensation for:
- medical and hospital fees
- rehabilitation sessions
- nursing services
- loss of income and earning capacity
- expenses following death, like funeral costs
- lump sum
Time limits and considerations
Time limits can vary between states and can be as early as six months from the date of the accident. It's always best to seek legal advice as soon as possible - even if you think you've left it too late as we still may be able to help. Our free claim check will let you know if you have a potential claim.
It's also important to consider the full extent of your injuries, which you might not know right away. That's why it's a good idea to seek legal advice early. Our experienced lawyers are familiar with these claims and can help you understand exactly what you're entitled to.
