If negligence can be established, either wholly or partially, against another party it is recommended you consult a specialist personal injury lawyer who can assist you with your claim for compensation arising from the motorbike accident. Again strict time limits apply so it is recommended you consult a lawyer (solicitor) as soon as possible.

Bodily injury such as broken arms and fractured legs are the more common injuries to be sustained in a motorbike accident. However, as you will appreciate with being thrown from a motorbike at speed, numerous different injuries can be suffered including brain injury, back injury, etc.
If you are travelling to or from work then there may also be cover for your losses under QLD Workers Compensation. Under Workers Compensation, the claim is irrespective of negligence and who was to blame for the accident. In such circumstances the injury needs to be reported to both your employer and the workers compensation insurer as soon as possible. Remember time strict limits do apply so seek legal advice.
