INJURY CLAIMS – MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered a personal injury either as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, cyclist or other road user, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
Forms of compensation you may be entitled to include the following:
Pain and Suffering
This is an amount awarded to you based on the level of your injuries, and the pain and suffering arising from those injuries.
Loss of Income
If you have missed time off work as a result of your injuries, you are entitled to be compensated for your financial loss.
Loss of Earning Capacity
Where you have suffered a loss of income as a result of missing time from work or if there is the potential that you could miss work in the future, you may be entitled to an award for a loss of earning capacity.
Out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatment may also be claimed. This may include visits to your GP, pharmaceutical, physiotherapy or chiropractic expenses, or in more serious cases, admission to hospital.
You may be entitled to claim the costs of any care or assistance you have received since the accident or are likely to have in the future as a result of the accident. This includes care given by a spouse, domestic partner, child or parent, and also extends to paid assistance by professional services.
You will receive reimbursement for reasonable expenses incurred directly as a result of travelling to and from medical treatment.
The insurer will contribute towards your legal costs.
