Compensation Law

Have you been injured in a motor vehicle accident?

Our dedicated compensation lawyers are here to help you through life’s most challenging events. Attwood Marshall Lawyers are a leading personal injury and compensation law firm with the experience you need to get the best outcome from your motor accident compensation claim. 

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident in New South Wales, as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist, or bicycle rider, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your injuries, even if you are unable to identify the driver of the other vehicle.  

Injured road users are often able to claim compensation benefits to cover their weekly payments, medical and treatment expenses, and other costs. You may also be able to claim common law compensation by taking action against the insurer of a negligent driver or road user.  

For all motor vehicle injury compensation claims, we offer a No Win, No Fee guarantee. What this means is that you only pay our fees if you win your claim. In most cases, the insurer is required to pay for, or contribute towards, your total costs. In the event your claim is unsuccessful, you will not be required to pay for anything. We will waive your fees entirely.  

To find out where you stand, make an appointment with one of our experienced personal injury and compensation lawyers who can assess your claim. Your initial consultation is free, with no-obligation to proceed if you choose not to. 

We are always available to chat with you at one of our conveniently located offices, over the phone, or via any other suitable arrangement to help you understand your rights and what steps you need to take after suffering an injury in a motor vehicle accident.

There are many circumstances in which you may be eligible to make a compensation claim for an injury in a motor vehicle accident. These include: 

  • If the other driver or road user was at fault 
  • If the injured claimant was under 16 years old and a resident of NSW at the time of the accident. In this type of case, you can make a claim for the children’s special benefit, regardless of who caused the accident. 
  • Blameless accidents (for example, accidents caused by an unexplained mechanical failure or by an unavoidable collision with an animal or object on the road.) 

To find out more information about your eligibility to make a claim for compensation, call our team on 1800 621 071. 

You can still make a claim for compensation against the Nominal Defendant. Strict time limits apply so act fast.  

Attwood Marshall Lawyers offer a No Win, No Fee guaranteeThis means we defer your legal fees and pay your evidence costs on your behalf until the end of your claim.  Even then, the insurer often has to contribute towards your total costs.  If we don’t win your case, you will not need to pay our legal costs – we will waive them entirely.  

Yes! Strict time limits apply. For this reason, it is imperative that you act quickly to claim compensation for any personal injury sustained in a motor vehicle accident.  Most claims have a strict three-year time limitation from the date of accident, or the claim will be statute-barred. For claims against the Nominal Defendant, there are urgent timeframes so call us today.  

Steps include: 

  1. Ring Attwood Marshall Lawyers as early as possible to obtain advice;  
  2. Report the accident to the police; 
  3. Obtain details such as registration numbers, witness names, police details, photographs.  
  4. Serve a Personal Injury Claim Form on the CTP insurer; 
  5. Once medically stable, we’ll have your injuries assessed and provide evidence and information to the insurer; 
  6. We’ll undertake settlement negotiations with the insurer on your behalf. Most claims are resolved informally or at out-of-court settlement conferences.  
  7. If settlement negotiations fail, we will progress your matter to the Claims Assessment Resolution Service (CARS) or to Court within 3 years of the accident.
