I caused the accident and I am injured. What are my options?
Some CTP insurers provide additional driver protection insurance. These policies typically provide a lump sum payment for specific serious injuries. You claim will not be a claim under the CTP regime, but you may still be entitled to lump sum benefits.
You may also be eligible to apply to participate in the National Injury Insurance Scheme which can provide lifetime care, treatment and support for people with specific serious injuries.
The National Disability Insurance Scheme is another scheme where you might be able to get funding for supports if eligible.
If your accident occurred whilst working, or on the way to or from work, you may also be able to get workers compensation benefits if you are an employee under the Queensland workers compensation scheme.
You may also have insurance benefits attached to your superannuation accounts, such as salary continuance or income protection or Total Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance policies.
We can help you investigate whether you can make these claims.
