Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

A majority of people in New South Wales have been affected by a motor vehicle accident through their own experience or that of family and friends.

The impact that a motor vehicle accident can have on the victims of the accident and their families and friends can be life altering. At City Legal Solicitors our lawyers work to ensure that victims of motor vehicle accidents receive their full entitlement to any personal injury compensation. If you are injured in a car or motorcycle accident in New South Wales you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation under the Compulsory Third Party scheme.

To receive compensation there is a requirement to provide evidence that the driver or owner of the vehicle was partially or completely to blame for the accident. However, you may still be entitled to compensation even if you were partly to blame for your injuries for example if you were speeding, driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or not wearing a seatbelt. Our lawyers can assist you to make a claim for the early payment of your treatment expenses to help you cover medical costs and loss of earnings until a formal claim for compensation is lodged.

Our motor vehicle accident lawyers can advise you on your entitlements to make a claim for economic loss which includes the loss of your ability to earn an income and your medical expenses. We can also determine whether you will be able to make a claim for non-economic loss for your pain and suffering caused by the accident.

Compensation in relation to injuries suffered as a result of a motor vehicle accident is most commonly paid by either an insurance company or an agency with a central role of managing claims. Insurance companies usually seek advice from their own panel of lawyers who generally advise on issues such as acceptance of liability, claim management and quantum or better described as the amount of compensation the insurer could reasonably expect to pay to an injured person.

At City Legal Solicitors we ensure that you are aware of all the benefits and lump sum compensation available to you.

Motor vehicle accidents claims are riddled with complexities and are hazardous for a claimant to self assess. Our lawyers will advise you in relation to compensation and the claim process.
