Motor vehicle accidents include car accidents, truck accidents, bicycle accidents, motorcycle accidents and accidents involving pedestrians.
The accident may happen quickly, but the effects of the accident can last a lifetime. A motor vehicle accident can have devastating effects on your physical and mental health and your earning capacity, as well as on the people around you.
No matter how big or small your injuries may be, we recommend determining your eligibility to apply for compensation.
Speak to a lawyer before accepting a claim from your insurer
It’s incredibly important that you talk to your lawyer before accepting a financial settlement offer on your claim from your insurer. More often than not, the settlement offered by the insurer is far less than the payout you would be entitled to.
I’ve had a motor vehicle accident, at what point should I get a lawyer?
We recommend contacting a lawyer as soon as possible for advice. Your lawyer can liaise with the medical personnel and police on your behalf, helping to increase your chances of a positive outcome. We know how the process works and will take care of matters for you.
Is there a time limit to lodge my claim?
Yes, there is a six-month time limit from the date of the injury to lodge your claim which is why we recommend lodging it sooner rather than later. You will therefore need to complete an Accident Report and Injury Claim Form as soon as possible.
How much compensation will I get?
Your compensation amount will depend on several varying factors. There are discounts and limits within most claim categories. Our team of competent lawyers will help you through the process, delivering the best possible outcome for your case.
Injuries caused by a medical professional’s negligence can have a devastating effect on you and your family.
