Car Accident Compensation

If you or someone in your family is injured in a car accident, either as a passenger, driver, cyclist or pedestrian, you can claim compensation. Drivers, cyclists, pedestrians and passengers are all covered by the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) scheme in NSW. The law requires drivers in NSW to carry CTP insurance. Even if you were partly at fault in an accident, with the help of a specialist personal injury and car accident lawyer, you can still make a claim for compensation.

Car accident injuries like these are covered by the Motor Accidents Compensation Act, and we are highly experienced in working with this part of the law. We know the tricks used by the insurance companies, and will always be on the front foot to pursue your rights.

Not sure whether you have a claim? Give yourself peace of mind and check with us. Please call us on 1800 773 880 for a FREE initial consultation, and we’ll point you in the right direction.

What can I claim?

Costs of rehabilitation and medical treatment after your accident

The insurer is required to pay your reasonable and necessary treatment expenses. Keep your receipts and they will be included in your claim for compensation.

Medical treatment you may need in the future

We will speak to your doctors about your needs and make sure everything is claimed. We will also pay for an independent opinion on your injuries and needs under our No Win – No Fee policy.

Your loss of income and superannuation – past and future

If you cannot work as a result of your accident, you can make a claim for that lost income. Even if you have not stopped work, or only had a short time off, you can still make a claim for loss of income – as an injured worker, you are at a disadvantage.

If you are suffering financial hardship, you can also make a claim for an advance payment. Don’t let your accident ruin your future so speak with us today.

The free assistance that your family and friends have provided to you

You can claim significant compensation for the extra help that your friends and family have given you. Keep a diary of the help you are receiving from your partner, children and friends, and make a claim for their helping hands.

Care and assistance you need around the home into the future

You can claim compensation for the assistance you need because of your injuries, whether it is a cleaner, gardener or handyman around your home. You can make a claim even if you haven’t been able to afford to pay someone. These are costs caused by the accident, so we will make sure your claim for compensation includes everything you need.

Pain and suffering

If you have suffered serious injuries, you can claim for pain and suffering. In NSW, you are eligible for up to $492,000 for this, but the exact amount will depend on your particular situation.

Legal costs
