Common questions about TAC Claims in Victoria
The TAC is an organisation owned by the Victorian State Government whose function is to provide compensation to people injured in transport accidents.
It doesn't matter if the accident was your fault, or if you were driving a car, truck, motorcycle, bus, train or tram - you may still have a TAC claim for compensation.
A TAC common law claim entitles you to claim compensation for:
- pain and suffering
- loss of enjoyment of life and scarring
- financial loss.
The total amount available in a TAC common law claim is $1,419,240.00.
Our experts will explain what you might be able to claim and we’ll make the process easy. We know you want to get on with it and regain control of your life so we’ll look after everything for you.
These TAC benefits include:
- Payment of medical and related expenses
- Weekly payments for being unable to work
- A lump sum for any permanent injury, known as an “impairment benefit”.
If you have had an accident that occurred before 16 December 2004, the total amount available for a TAC lump sum impairment benefit is $83,410.00. If your accident occurred after 16 December 2004, then the total amount available for a TAC lump sum impairment benefit is $281,090.00.
