Road Accidents

A CTP claim can be made if an injury is caused by someone else in a motor vehicle accident. In more complicated accidents, proving liability (fault) may require:

  • expert opinion;

  • a careful analysis of:

  • the mechanics of the accident;

  • adherence to driving laws

  • detailed disclosure and information requests to the other side; and/or

  • forensic investigation of the scene.

If you’ve been injured in a road accident caused by someone else, need to:

  • See a doctor as soon as possible after the accident, even if your injuries appear to be minor;

  • Obtain details of any other vehicles and drivers involved in the accident, as well as any witnesses;

  • Inform the police as soon as possible about the accident;

  • If you wish to bring a claim, notify the insurer of an intention to claim; and

  • Lodge a Claim within the appropriate time frame and limitation period applicable to the circumstances of your claim.

Time Limits Various strict time limits apply to making a claim and if you miss the time limits you may lose your right to claim forever. Contact us now so we can give you the representation and advice needed to maximise and progress your claim.
