Most people have been involved in a motor vehicle accident at some stage in their lives. Sustaining an injury from a motor vehicle accident is one of the most common forms of personal injury that we deal with at Thurlows Compensation Lawyers.
The term “Motor Vehicle Accidents” relates to traffic related accidents, including those involving cars, trucks, motorcycles and public transport vehicles. However the majority of injuries arise out of car accidents. In NSW, all drivers must have compulsory third party insurance. This scheme is fault-based, meaning that restrictions apply to the amount of compensation that can be claimed, depending on who was at fault.
If you are injured, and another party was at fault, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation. However, the process of making a claim can be very complex and time consuming. We recommend that you seek the advice of an expert compensation lawyer to help handle your claim.
To talk to one of our experts about your claim, call us on 02 9708 2222. Remember that strict time limits do apply in regards to compensation claims, so the sooner you begin the process the better your chances of success.
