What Can I Be Compensated For?

If you are not at fault for the incident and you have been injured as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, you can claim car accident compensation. If it is likely that you will be found to have some fault, you may still be able to seek compensation with a “contributory negligence” finding. Either way, seeking the right advice is essential to establish what you might be able to claim and the process you will need to follow.

 

Some of the most common things you can be compensated for are:

 

  • Expenses incurred by you in assessing or treating injuries, as well as any future medical bills that arise.
  • Expenses paid by others, including Medicare, Comcare, private health insurance and more.
  • Income lost from earning capacity due to the accident (including superannuation) with immediate and future impact.
  • General compensation for pain and suffering because of your injury and includes potential permanent disabilities.
  • Lowered quality of living (including physical, mental or financial hardship).  
  • Home/vehicle modifications to cater for impairments.
  • Both paid and unpaid domestic assistance also known as gratuitous care you have received from loved ones or care professionals following an accident.

While you are coping with the emotional turmoil from your injuries, let us help you with compensation claims to protect you against the financial fallout from the motor vehicle accident.

What Should I Do If I've Been In A Car Crash?

Try and remain calm, observant, and helpful. While emotions can be high if you or someone else is injured, making sure emergency services are called and that nobody else is put in harm’s way should be your priority. You are also obliged to exchange contact and insurance information with the other parties involved and witnesses.

 

As soon as possible following the incident, you should write down everything that happened, then talk to us, even if you do not think you’re going to make a personal injury or insurance claim.


Take Photos And Videos

Pictures of your injuries, even if they seem minor, the place where the incident happened and any vehicles, equipment, road condition, or fixtures involved can significantly help your case. Do not discard any items damaged in the incident, like a bicycle, car, laptop, and bag.

 

Keep A Diary

Keep track of all absences from work related to your

injuries and all related medical appointments, including doctors, physiotherapists, chiropractors etc. Recording all assistance provided by friends and family members and paid professionals may qualify you for additional compensation under your motor vehicle accident claim.

 

Gather Important Documents

Demonstrate your loss of earnings and earning capacity for up to six years before the car accident by gathering payslips, group certificates, income tax returns. Work-related items, including contracts, references and your resume, can assist with earnings assessment for your car accident claims. Additionally, collect proof of your expenses in the way of invoices and receipts for appointments and medication.

 

Compulsory Third-Party Car Insurance

Over the years you have probably paid more than $300 per year towards compulsory third party registration of any vehicle you own so there is no reason for you not to claim in circumstances in which you have been injured.

 

We are available to take your enquiry, with no obligation initial consultation, seven days a week.

 

Am I Able To Make A Compensation Claim As a Passenger?

Regardless of whether you are the driver of motor vehicle, passenger or even a pedestrian, you may be entitled to make a motor vehicle accident claim

 

If I Am “At Fault”, Am I Still Able To Make A Claim?

If it is likely that you will be found to have some fault, you may still be able to claim compensation with a “contributory negligence” finding. Either way, seeking advice is essential to establish what you might be able to claim and the process you will need to follow.

 

Do I Have To Go To Court For My Compensation?

Should your matter not be finalised by informal negotiation and conference with the CTP Insurer or Respondent, court proceedings may be commenced.

 

However, our motor vehicle accident lawyers will help guide you through the claims process in attempt to resolve your matter without need for the significant costs associated with court proceedings.

 

Are There Any Time Limits In Making A Claim?

Statutory limitations do apply to personal injury claims and motor vehicle accident claims. Typically, claimants will be statute barred from making an accident claim after three years from the date of the accident.
