Compensation for your motor vehicle accident claim in WA
Our team are experts in motor vehicle accident law and can guide and support you through the legal process.
Some common claim types include:
Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance allows you to claim compensation for your injuries if you’ve been injured on the road and you can prove the other driver was at fault. You can still make a CTP claim even if the other car was unregistered or unidentified.
Getting the right legal advice for your existing claim is important. Even if you weren’t the one driving and just a pedestrian, there may be compensation options available to you.
What you can claim depends on the extent of your injuries and what state the accident occurred in.
You may be eligible to be compensated for:
Loss of earnings
Hospital and medical expenses
Domestic services and care needs
Pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life
How long will it take?
This depends on your injuries, the treatment you’ll need and your recovery.
Strict time limitations apply when lodging a motor vehicle accident claim.
Getting the right legal advice after you’ve been injured, is crucial.
