What Can I Claim Compensation For?
If you are not at fault for the incident and you have been injured as a driver, passenger, or pedestrian, you may be able to make a personal injury claim as a result of the car accident and possibly for compensation. 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.
Some of the most common things you can claim compensation 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.
- Workers Compensation as a journey claim.
- 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 car accident injuries, let us help you with compensation claims to protect you against the financial fallout from the vehicle crash.
How much compensation do you get?
The amount of compensation to which you may be entitled can be affected by a number of factors and the degree to which to have been injured, impaired or incurred economic loss.
One of our personal injury lawyers will be able to assist you in discussing what you may be entitled in making a personal injury claim.
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 in a motor vehicle accident, 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 car accident, you should write down everything that happened. We may then be able to assist in discussing the motor vehicle accident, even if you do not think you’re going to make a compensation claim.
What Should You Do When In An Accident But No Damage Has Occurred?
If there has been no damage to your property, this does not mean that there has not been an injury to your person.
While a property damage may not be claimed, if you have sustained and injury as a result of the accident a claim for compensation may still be made.
What Evidence Do I Need?
Take Photos And Videos
Pictures of your car accident 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 car accident 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.
Gather Important Documents
Demonstrate your 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 claims. Additionally, collect proof of your expenses in the way of invoices and receipts for appointments and medication.
