Motor Vehicle Accidents

Unfortunately, road accidents can lead to many types of injuries, both physical and psychological. Our lawyers can advise you of your potential for compensation based on your individual circumstances and needs. Strict time limits apply to making a claim and you should seek legal advice as soon as possible if you have been involved in an accident. Compensation is generally paid by an insurance company or government agency that manages motor vehicle accident claims in your state. In New South Wales, this is the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). Every registered vehicle in New South Wales has third party insurance (CTP, or Compulsory Third Party insurance) included in their registration to ensure compensation is available in the unfortunate event of an accident occurring.

No Win No Fee*

It’s simple. Under the No Win - No Fee arrangement, if your claim is unsuccessful you may not need to pay any legal fees.

Your lawyer will take you through this arrangement in more detail in your free initial appointment.

What is WorkCover?

WorkCover is a compulsory insurance that covers all Australian employees, providing protection against workplace-related injuries or illnesses regardless of who is at fault.

Most organisations must provide this insurance to its full-time, part-time and casual workforce. WorkSafe insurance is often referred to as ‘workers compensation’ and its purpose it to ensure workers receive support via benefits and financial compensation as a result of a work-related injury or illness.

  1. See your doctor for treatment and give them details about how you were injured.

  2. Report the injury to your employer. This must be done in writing within 30 days of becoming aware of the injury.

  3. If you do not need to take any time off but you want WorkCover to pay for the medical expenses you incur because of the injury, you should lodge a WorkCover claim form attaching any accounts/invoices relating to your medical treatment with your employer.

  4. Once you have lodged the WorkCover claim with your employer, the employer has 10 days to forward the documents on to their WorkCover claims agent.
