What’s the process of claiming Car Accident Compensation?

If you’ve followed the key steps we’ve mentioned above, then the process of claiming for compensation following a car accident becomes much easier. It’s important to note that in order to start your claim you will need to have verified your accident, which is done through getting a police report to support your claim – this needs to be done within 28 days of your accident. 

You must fill out an Application for personal injury benefits and submit it to the insurer within 3 months of the accident, however it’s advised to submit this as soon as possible. Be sure to also attach relevant medical records such as your Certificate of Capacity and records of your income to support your claim.

Once the claim has been submitted, the insurer will contact you for any further information and assess your claim, which can take up to 4 weeks. If the insurer considers that you are eligible for compensation then benefits must be paid within 28 days of the decision.

You can definitely submit this claim on your own, however if you do need assistance with this process our expert Car Accident lawyers are able to provide you guidance throughout. 

What’s the process of claiming Car Accident Compensation

What Car Accident Compensation am I entitled to?

It’s important to understand what are the different types of compensation you are eligible for if you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident. Below is a list of things that you can expect to claim:

Income support via weekly payments:
If you've lost income due to your motor vehicle accident, you may be eligible for weekly payments to help cover the loss of earnings during your recovery period.
Medical Expenses
This compensation covers the cost of medical treatment, including hospital fees, rehabilitation costs, and any ongoing healthcare needs resulting from the accident.
Pain and suffering:
If you've experienced significant pain and suffering due to your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for the physical and emotional distress caused by the accident.
Commercial care & domestic assistance:
If your injuries require you to seek commercial care services or assistance with domestic tasks you can no longer perform, this compensation helps cover these additional expenses.
Permanent impairment:
In cases where the accident results in permanent physical or mental impairment, you may be entitled to an additional lump sum payment.

It’s important to note that if your injury is considered a threshold injury, you are only entitled to benefits for up to 12 months (excluding lump sum payment). If your injury is above the threshold then the duration you receive these benefits are extended.

Frequently Asked Questions

The time limit for submitting a car accident claim is 28 days, it is highly recommended that you submit your Application for Personal Injury Benefits form to the insurer within that time frame. This will provide you with the optimal chances of receiving compensation earlier. 

However, you can still submit this application within 3 months from when you’ve have the car accident. If you choose to submit your application later, then benefits such as weekly payments and medical expenses will only be paid from the date of submission, not the date of when you’ve been incapacitated by the accident.

In NSW, all vehicles are required to have Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance, also known as a ‘Green Slip’. This insurance covers claims for compensation for people injured in a motor vehicle accident, including drivers, passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists.

This means if your vehicle is not insured then you are not eligible to receive compensation under the NSW CTP Scheme.

The CTP Insurer will be making compensation payments to those who are injured in a car accident. 

If you disagree with the CTP insurers’ decision related to your claim you can request an internal review with the insurer. This request must be completed within 28 days of receiving your decision from the insurer. 

In such cases where you also disagree with the decision post internal review then you can also make an application to the personal injury commission to get a further independent review. 

Our expert Car Accident lawyers can assist you with these processes.

In order to receive Statutory Benefits you must submit a claim within 28 days of your Car Accident. Stated by SIRA, you do have until 3 months after the crash to submit a claim, but it is advised that you submit your claim as soon as possible. 

If claims are submitted after 28 days, you may need to provide an explanation to the CTP insurer for your delay.

According to the Motor Accident Injuries Act 2017, for the first 52 weeks it doesn’t matter who caused the accident. This means that those drivers who are most at fault are still eligible to receive compensation for the first 52 weeks. 

Once the 52 weeks have past, then statutory benefits to the driver will cease. This ensures that everyone involved in the car accident is supported. So if you are at fault, be sure to still reach out to us to lodge a claim as you may still be eligible for benefits. 

However, if you are at-fault and your vehicle is not insured, then unfortunately you are not eligible for compensation.

Being involved in a car accident can be a very stressful period in your life. The last thing you want to deal with alongside your recovery is to gather all the required documents and evidence needed to submit a claim for compensation. In such case, hiring a Car Accident lawyer can prove to be a wise move to reduce the burden and allows you to gain confidence that your claim will be looked after. 

The benefits of hiring a Car Accident lawyer doesn’t just end once you’ve submitted the claim. We will also provide you with support and represent you in cases the decisions made by the CTP insurer are not favourable for you. A car accident lawyer will provide you with the legal guidance needed to ensure that you receive maximum compensation. 

We also ensure that no stones are left unturned, as we also look into opportunities where permanent impairment is present which can also result in an additional lump sum payment alongside your usual statutory benefits. 

Finally, here at Alliance Compensation & Litigiation Lawyers, we operate on a No-Win-No-Fee structure, meaning if you are not successful in your claim you don’t pay a single cent. In cases where the claim is worth less than $75K, upon a successful claim, the CTP insurer will cover 100% of the cost.
