Car Accident Compensation

If you have been injured on the road, you may be entitled to car accident compensation. In Australia, each State and Territory has its own car accident compensation claim scheme. For example, in New South Wales, persons injured on the road may be eligible for motor vehicle accident compensation. The NSW scheme is administered by the Motor Accidents Authority. In Victoria, these claims are referred to as TAC compensation (TAC being the Transport Accident Commission).

A person injured as a result of a car accident may be eligible for reasonable and necessary medical, pharmaceutical, rehabilitation, respite care and attendant care expenses. They may also be entitled to compensation for loss of income and out of pocket expenses, and payment for their pain and suffering.

Each Australian State and Territory operates its own scheme for workers compensation for persons who are injured as a result of their work. In Victoria, for example, Worksafe manage the workers compensation scheme. Injured workers may be eligible for weekly payments, treatment expenses (physiotherapy, chiropractic, osteopathy, optometry, dental, acupuncture, counselling) and permanent impairment entitlements.

Medical Negligence

Under the common law, medical professionals must exercise reasonable care when diagnosing and treating a patient. If a doctor breaches their duty of care to their patient, and the patient is injured, the doctor may be liable to pay compensation to the patient. Medical negligence law is found primarily in case law, though it has been modified by Civil Liability Legislation enacted in each State and Territory.

Injured patients should seek advice from an accident compensation solicitor who specialises in medical negligence compensation law. Our medical negligence solicitors operate nationwide and have dealt with numerous medical negligence claims and hospital negligence claims and coroner’s inquests on a no win no fee basis.

Statute of Limitations

All accident compensation claims in Australia must be lodged within the time period specified by law. This time limit varies depending on the type of claim and the jurisdiction involved. As soon as you are injured at work, in a car accident, or become aware of a potential injury that may be the result of negligence, your priority should be to seek medical attention. Secondly, you should contact an accident compensation lawyer for legal advice. Failure to lodge a claim or commence legal action in time may result in you losing out on compensation.
