Do I need a car accident compensation lawyer?

If you have been injured in a car accident and your injuries have resulted in loss of income, permanent impairment or disability or a need for medical treatment, you may be eligible for car accident compensation. You should speak to our car accident compensation lawyers who will help you understand your rights and lodge a car accident compensation claim.

Our lawyers will help you navigate the complex process of making a motor vehicle compensation claim and handle the compensation process for you, allowing you to concentrate on recovering from your injuries.

What can I claim?

Motor vehicle accident compensation varies, depending on the severity of your injury and your personal circumstances.

The amount of car accident compensation depends on your injuries, which will be classified as ‘minor’ or ‘non-minor’.

An example of a minor injury is a muscle injury (sometimes known as a soft tissue injury), a sore back or neck and the like.

An example of a non-minor injury includes a broken bone, a head injury or injuries that require surgery. A psychiatric injury can also be classified as non-minor if it results in a recognised psychiatric disorder.

Depending on the classification of the injury as “minor” or “non-minor”, you may be able to claim car accident compensation for income support and medical expenses for up to 6 months or in more serious cases, income support and medical expenses for lengthy periods if you make a claim for damages and lump sum compensation for past and future economic loss. If you have a degree of permanent impairment exceeding 10%, you may also be entitled to lump sum compensation for pain and suffering.

Strict time limits apply to motor vehicle accident claims

Strict time limits apply to motor vehicle accident claims

It is important to remember that strict time limits apply to lodging claims for motor vehicle accident compensation in NSW. For example, your accident notification claim must be submitted to the insurer within 28 days of the accident. If this is done, you may be eligible to receive up to $5,000 in compensation for losses incurred in the first six months after the date of the accident.

A personal injury claim for motor vehicle compensation must be lodged with the insurer within 6 months of the date of accident. These claims are usually for non-minor injuries where it is expected that your recovery time will exceed six months or where it is expected that you may have permanent impairment as a result of your injuries.

Time limits can be extended, but only in exceptional circumstances and you should never assume that a time limit will be extended.

It is therefore very important to contact a motor vehicle accident lawyer as soon as possible after you suffer your injury so that a motor accident compensation claim can be lodged on your behalf within these time limits.
