Car accidents happen frequently and unfortunately can result in injuries that cause ongoing pain, suffering and loss of income. We all pay compulsory third party (CTP) insurance so that we have peace of mind and can lodge a claim if we are injured in an accident. Even if the accident was your fault, you still have some entitlements.
If the accident was someone else’s fault then you can lodge a claim with the other driver’s CTP insurer and claim loss of wages, your medical expenses and, in some circumstances, pain and suffering and domestic assistance.
Very strict time limits apply to motor accident claims. Some forms have to be lodged as soon as 28 days after the accident. Be sure to notify the Police within 28 days of the accident.
If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident contact Burgan Lawyers for expert, professional and caring advice as to your entitlements and assistance with lodging the requisite forms.
