Simply answer these three questions to get started:

A more personal approach to your motorcycle injury claim.

Most motorcycle accidents happen when drivers fail to give way, rear-end motorcycles or drive recklessly.

We’ve helped thousands of injured motorcycle riders get compensation for their injuries, but we understand your situation is unique, and you’re different from every one of them. Getting you more compensation starts with building a personal relationship with you, to truly understand your situation.

There’s no cost to speak to a motorcycle accident lawyer, tell your side of the story, and find out how much you can claim.

Henry's story

Maoris don't give up but the pain pushed me to the edge

As a proud Maori, it was Henry’s honour and duty to provide for his family. But when we met Henry his life was in tatters from a freak accident.

“My cousin recommended Law Partners. They took all the stress away from what I had to deal with and I really felt like they were a family. I found the best in Law Partners and I highly recommend them.”

We’ll get you more compensation.

Motorcycle accident injuries often mean time off work, unplanned expenses and financial stress. But we’re here to help. We get to know you and your family to learn about your life before you were injured. We look beyond your injuries, to understand your work, family, social and financial situation. Then we look at what’s changed. Many of our clients’ injuries have led to other life complications and health issues. By getting to know you personally we identify these issues and claim all your entitlements. So you’ll get more compensation with a Law Partners motorcycle accident lawyer on your side.

What accidents can I claim for?

Rear ended by a car.

When you’re on a bike, being rear-ended can cause serious injuries. If this has happened to you it’s very likely you can claim motorcycle accident compensation under the at-fault vehicle’s CTP policy.

Hit by a driver failing to give way.

If you ride a bike, you’ll know that drivers often fail to look for bikes or give way to you. If you’ve been hit and injured, you’re entitled to compensation.

Accidents caused by negligent or aggressive driving.

If you’ve been injured by negligent or aggressive driving, there’s no cost to talk to a motorbike accident lawyer and find out how much you can claim.

No other vehicle involved.

If you’ve come off your bike and there were no other vehicles involved, it’s possible you can still make a motorcycle injury claim even if you were at fault.

No matter how you’ve been injured on your bike, you can call Law Partners for free advice on your compensation entitlements.

What can I claim for a motorcycle injury?

Motorcycle accident injuries are generally classified as being above threshold, which means your benefits could extend to 24 months and beyond, and you might be entitled to significant lump sums.

Category Entitlements
1. Threshold
  • Income support, medical and home care expenses for up to 12 months.*
2. Above threshold injury
  • Income support, medical and home care expenses that can extend beyond 24 months if there is a claim for damages.
  • A lump sum for past and future lost income.
3. Above threshold injury over 10% permanent impairment
  • An additional lump sum for pain and suffering.

It’s vital that your injuries and their impact on your life are thoroughly assessed, and that’s where the right motorbike accident lawyer makes a big difference. We win over 99% of our cases and pride ourselves in winning more compensation.

*Note: if you were at fault and your accident happened prior to 1 April 2023, your income support, medical, and home care expenses will be limited to six months.

How we can help you.

Here are three ways our motorcycle accident lawyers can get more compensation for you:

Team icon

Give you free advice before you submit your claim. It’s critical that your application is filled out correctly, and that your injuries are properly assessed by your GP on your certificate of fitness.

Magnifying glass over medical forms. Failure to warn/inform icon

Help you if you disagree with the assessment on the insurer’s liability notice. If the insurer has classified your injuries as threshold (minor) injuries, but you disagree with the decision, we can review it for you and provide free legal advice on your options.

Unsure if eligible icon

Help you claim a lump sum settlement. If your injuries are above threshold and you weren’t at fault in the accident, it’s very likely you can claim a lump sum settlement, and these lump sums can be substantial.

You’re in safe hands with Law Partners.

Your motorcycle accident lawyer is backed by a team of specialists including paralegals, medico-legal experts, forensic accountants and barristers. Your team will work hard for you, check in with you regularly and always keep you up to date with your case. You’re in safe hands with Australia’s largest specialist personal injury firm.

Throughout, Tanja Maksimovic, and team Jessica Terre, and Sarah Starnovsky, were clear they knew how to get the best outcome for me, and I was confident in them without hesitation.

Frequently asked questions.

You can lodge your own claim without using a lawyer. However, it’s important to understand that if you leave out important details in your application, or if your certificate of fitness isn’t completed correctly, it’s likely you’ll miss out on benefits you’re entitled to. Our motorcycle accident injury lawyers can advise you on how to make sure you claim everything you’re entitled to, and we’ll provide free advice over the phone.

We work on a no win no fee, no disbursements basis, so you’ll only need to pay our fees if we win, and you receive your motorcycle accident compensation.

There’s a schedule of regulated fees a lawyer can be paid to assist you for claims up to $75,000.

  • These fees are paid by the insurer.
  • If your settlement amount is greater than $75,000, the insurer will contribute to your fees. We’ll provide you with a schedule of these fees, set out in an agreement.
  • This agreement is known as a “costs agreement”, and only applies to the amount we charge for your claim over the $75,000 threshold.
  • The regulated fees still apply to the work we do for the first $75,000 of your claim and are still paid by the insurer.

Once you submit your claim for motorcycle accident compensation it will be reviewed by the CTP insurer of the at-fault vehicle, which must send you a letter within one month to tell you if it’s accepting or denying the claim. If it accepts the claim, the insurer will then start making fortnightly payments to you.

The CTP insurer will then send you a second liability decision within three months of your claim being lodged. This liability decision indicates whether your injuries have been classified as below or above threshold and who is at fault for the accident.

If your motorcycle injury claim is successful:

  • You should receive 95% of your pre-accident weekly earnings for the first 14 weeks.
  • Your payments will drop to 80-85% of your pre-accident weekly earnings after week 14.
  • From week 78 it reduces to 80-85% of your ‘loss of earning capacity’.
  • Income benefits will stop at 52 weeks if you were the driver mostly at fault or your injuries are threshold.*
  • Treatment is available after 52 weeks even if your injuries are threshold injuries or you were at fault.*
  • Income support stops at 24 months – to receive support beyond that, you’ll need to submit a separate application for a lump sum (an Application for Damages under Common Law).

*Note: if you were at fault and your accident happened prior to 1 April 2023, your income support, medical, and home care expenses will be limited to six months.

In NSW, lump sum motorcycle injury claim payouts (common law damages) are available to people with above-threshold injuries who are not at fault.

  • Lump sum payouts for above-threshold physical injuries are for more serious injuries like fractures. They also include nerve injuries, injuries that require surgery, brain injuries and scarring.
  • Lump sum payouts for above-threshold psychological or psychiatric injuries cover diagnosed psychological or psychiatric illnesses such as depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), as well as a range of others.

You must make your motorcycle accident compensation claim within 28 days to be eligible for income loss from the date of the accident. The final claim lodgement date is three months from the accident, although this can be extended in certain circumstances. You can call us on 13 15 15 for free advice on submitting your claim.
