Car accidents, injuries and road fatalities impact all road users, including drivers of cars, caravans and trucks, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicycle riders.
If you have been injured on Sydney roads, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation for your injuries, which can cover weekly payments, your medical expenses and treatment costs, and other expenses.
You may also be eligible to claim common law compensation by taking action against the insurer of a negligent driver or road user.
If you have lost a loved one in a car accident, compensation may be available to surviving family members who were dependent on the deceased.

In most cases, the motor vehicle insurer is required to pay for, or contribute towards, your total legal costs. In the event your claim is unsuccessful, you will not have to pay for anything and we will waive your costs.

Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer FAQs
There are many circumstances in which you may be eligible to make a motor vehicle accident compensation claim for an injury sustained in a car accident.
Some of these circumstances include (but are not limited to):
If the other driver or road user was at fault for the accident
If the injured party was under 16 years old and a resident of New South Wales at the time of the accident. In this case, you can make a claim for the children’s special benefit, regardless of who was at fault for the accident.
Blameless motor vehicle accidents. These accidents are when no one is at fault, such as accidents caused by an unexplained mechanical failure or by an unavoidable collision with wildlife or an object on the road.
To find out more information and to determine your eligibility to make a motor vehicle accident compensation claim, contact our Sydney lawyers any time on 1800 621 071. Strict time limits apply so be sure to obtain advice at the earliest opportunity.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and the vehicle at fault was unregistered, uninsured or fled from the scene and cannot be identified, you can make a claim against the Nominal Defendant.
The Nominal Defendant steps into the place of the defendant and a claim against the Nominal Defendant is dealt with in the same way as a claim against a CTP (compulsory third party) insurer.
Strict time limits apply when making a claim against the Nominal Defendant, so it is imperative that you seek legal advice from an experienced compensation lawyer at the earliest opportunity to get your motor vehicle claim underway.
We offer a No Win, No Fee guarantee for motor vehicle accident compensation claims in New South Wales. This means we defer your legal fees and pay your evidence costs on your behalf until the end of your claim. Even then, the insurer is often ordered to contribute towards your total legal costs. If we do not successfully win your case, you will not need to pay our legal costs – we will waive them entirely.
Yes, there are strict time limitations that apply to compensation claims. In most cases, a strict three-year time limitation from the date of car accident applies, or the claim will be statute-barred. For claims against the Nominal Defendant, there are critical timeframes you must adhere to. Call us today on 1800 621 071 and we will help you get your compensation claim underway as soon as possible to ensure you meet the required time limits.
The following steps briefly outline what you need to do to make a motor vehicle accident compensation claim:
Report the motor vehicle accident to the police
Collect as many details as possible such as the registration numbers of all vehicles involved, witness names and contact details, police details, as well as photographs or dash cam footage of the vehicles, crash site, and your injuries
Contact our Sydney motor injury lawyers at the earliest opportunity to obtain legal advice
Serve a Personal Injury Claim Form on the CTP insurer
Once your injuries are medically stable, we will have your condition assessed by medical professionals and provide evidence and information to the insurer
We will undertake settlement negotiations with the insurer on your behalf. Most claims are resolved informally or at out of court settlement conferences
If settlement negotiations fail, we will progress your matter to the Claims Assessment Resolution Service (CARS) or to court within 3 years of the motor accident.
