Proven results in CTP claims

Our team has a long history of successful outcomes in CTP claims both by way of trial and by terms of settlement. Many significant claims have been resolved for modest amounts without the necessity for litigation on even catastrophic claims or claims involving difficult liability and quantum issues. Numerous decisions obtained by our team are now industry test cases.

Outstanding claims outcomes we have achieved for insurer clients include multi-million dollar savings on claims reserves for CTP claims, and we appreciate the many testimonials we have received from claims managers acknowledging the value of our work.

Our expertise

In Queensland, Quentin Owen has significant experience in personal injury claims, with particular expertise in catastrophic and fraudulent claims. Quentin was responsible for drafting RACQ’s CTP ‘at fault’ policy, and was a panel solicitor with the Nominal Defendant in Queensland for 24 years. He is consistently listed as a leading lawyer for Motor Vehicle Accident CTP (Defendant) in Doyle’s Guide and has been listed in Best Lawyers Australia for Insurance since 2013, and for Personal Injuries Litigation since 2015.

Our South Australian team led by Fiona Errington, is one of only three defendant firms with over 10 years experience in CTP claims and the state’s new legislation. We can help you navigate the unique and evolving CTP environment in South Australia to enable your smooth transition into this market.
