You have a right to be safe on the road. Any person who is injured in a motor vehicle or road accident and is not wholly at fault can make a claim for compensation.
An injured person can include:
- The driver
- Someone else driving your vehicle
- Driver and passengers in another vehicle
- Motorcyclists and their pillion passengers
- Cyclists, pedestrians and other road users
Motor vehicles include:
- Quad bike
- Forklifts (in some circumstances)
You may also be able to make a claim if you are injured while travelling on public transport. Our experienced lawyers can advise you of your entitlements.
What are the requirements for a successful motor vehicle compensation claim?
To be successful, our expert team of lawyers must show that you have suffered an injury because of the fault or partial fault of another person. You cannot claim compensation if the accident was your fault.
Time limits apply for making a motor vehicle accident claim and the procedure for making a claim is different in each state and territory. For a claim to be successful it is therefore important that we start our investigation as soon as possible.
