If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident as a pedestrian, driver or passenger in a vehicle you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, which can include:
- Compensation for pain and suffering and loss of your amenities of life;
- Loss of earnings (including loss of past and future income and loss of superannuation payments);
- Medical and rehabilitation expenses;
- Care costs (including past and future care);
- Out of pocket expenses.
It is important to remember that even if the driver of the vehicle involved in your accident is a friend or a family member, it is the compulsory third party insurance company or the Nominal Defendant that will be compensating you for your injuries, loss and damage, not your friend or family member.
You should also be aware that the compulsory third party insurer may have an obligation to meet your reasonable medical expenses and rehabilitation costs whilst your claim for compensation is being processed (such as physiotherapy treatment, chiropractic treatment, counselling etc.).
At Accident Law we have a team of solicitors who work on motor vehicle claims, and who can assist you with your enquiries.
Strict time limits apply in relation to lodging your claim for Compensation and which may result in you not being able to proceed with your claim. It is therefore imperative that you do not delay in investigating your claim rights and ensuring that your rights are protected.
