CTP payout amounts depend on the nature and severity of your injury, and your life circumstances; for instance, whether or not you were working at the time of the accident.
In NSW, motor vehicle accident compensation payouts can cover:
- Medical treatment and rehabilitation expenses, including hospital, medical, pharmaceutical and physiotherapy. You may also claim for the transport costs associated with seeking treatment.
- Loss of past and future income, typically paid as a lump sum when the CTP payment claim is finalised.
- If you have been seriously injured, you can also claim for the costs of support services, including the in-home care and domestic support.
- If you have sustained a serious injury that resulted in permanent impairment, you may be eligible to claim compensation payments for pain and suffering.
If you have experienced the tragic loss of a close relative in a motor vehicle accident, and the accident was the partial or complete fault of another driver, you may be able to claim compensation. A close relative can be a spouse, sibling, parent or a child. Payments can cover medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of financial support from the deceases loved-one, and the loss of services (e.g. parental care for a child).
