Our lawyers will proactively work to get your rehabilitation costs covered as soon as possible, working closely with your healthcare providers. We won't just tell you to keep the receipts for reimbursement - we focus on treatment for your injuries as first priority. This includes injuries such as whiplash, brain damage, back injuries, psychological trauma and more.
You could be able to access road accident injury compensation, no matter who's at fault. Your claim will depend on where the accident happened, and where your vehicle is registered.
Depending on the state where the road accident happened, you could be eligible for financial support for medical expenses, loss of earnings and loss of super contributions.
Time limits can be very strict and vary depending on the state, and who is injured or eligible to claim compensation. Time limits can start from just 28 days after the accident, so it's important to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible.
The compensation you may be eligible for will vary depending on where the motor vehicle accident happened, and where your vehicle is registered.
Each state and territory has different laws, road accident schemes and compensation claim processes.
