Do I Have Enough Grounds to Make a Truck Accident Claim
Establishing who’s responsible in a truck accident can sometimes be difficult, especially if any evidence that could help your case is lost. When claiming compensation on a truck accident where it was not your fault, it will be crucial to take photos and gather information about the person responsible for the truck accident.
Try to collect the following details:
- The name and address of the person responsible
- Their insurer and policy information
- Their car registration number, make and details
- Statements and contact details from any witnesses at the event
When the person responsible refuses or fails to provide these details, call Policelink on 131 444.

Following this, a compulsory conference must be organised to identify and clarify the issues in the dispute, encourage a settlement of the dispute and to make orders and give directions that will be suitable to resolve the dispute.
Our experienced truck accident lawyers will help you through this process.
File Trucking Accident Claim in the Court Registry
When the initial settlement offer is not accepted at the compulsory conference, there is a 9-month window from the date of injury, damages or death to lodge a formal notice of claim form, or 1 month after hiring or consulting a lawyer to represent or make a truck accident claim.
Not meeting these time limits requires a reasonable excuse for the delay to be provided. If the reasonable excuse for the delay is accepted, then the normal 3-year limitation period applies.
