The costs of a motor vehicle accident lawyer

To get in touch about your situation and the possible fees you could incur, call one of our lawyers in south east Queensland to organise a consultation.

My Car Accident Lawyer works on a 'no win, no fee' basis. This means you do not pay any legal fees until and unless your claim is finalised – either by settling with the insurance company or a Court decision. Along the way, we will also pay for legal outlays, such as medico-legal assessment fees, Barrister's fees, Court fees and other outlays that may be necessary to progress your claim.

Unlike other legal firms, My Car Accident Lawyer will also pay these outlays on a 'no win, no fee' policy. So, if your claim does not succeed, you do not pay anything to your motor vehicle accident lawyer. You do not have to pay any expenses we incur in that case.

If you go to Court and lose, you may however be ordered to pay the insurer's legal costs. That is something you should talk to us about.

This could include:

  • If you are the driver of a car or rider of a motorbike hit by another vehicle;
  • If you are the passenger in a car or a pillion passenger on a motorbike (whether or not the driver or rider is at fault);
  • If you are hit by a vehicle when you are a pedestrian;
  • If you are involved in a hit and run, so you do not have details of the vehicle at fault;
  • If details of another vehicle are unknown or unidentified;
  • If you are injured whilst riding a mountain bike or road bike.
