What can I claim for after a car accident? 

Not every car accident is the same and more often than not, people can claim for different things depending on their situation. For the most part, it depends on things such as: 

  • How severe your injuries are 

  • How much you have lost and will lose in wages 

  • What medical expenses you have as a result of the accident

  • How much care you need 

  • How much you have paid out of your own pocket 

Damage to your own car or the contents within it can usually be claimed through your own car insurance provider. It is possible that the insurer will agree to pay for some or all of the costs for your ongoing treatment as well, so that you are not out of pocket while waiting for the claim to be finalised.

What happens in a car accident without insurance?

Depending on the state the accident occurred in and the specific injuries or damage that occurred, Compulsory Third Party Insurance (CTP) might be a possible course of action. Due to the complexity of each claim, we recommend speaking to one of our car accident experts to find out your options. 

Who pays me the car accident compensation?

In most situations, it’s the insurance company of the driver or entity at fault that will pay the compensation to you following your car accident. The insurance company deals with everything, so the driver or party at fault won’t have to pay out of their own pocket either.
