With more than 50 years of combined experience in motor accident compensation claims, Lionheart Lawyers have the expertise to obtain maximum compensation for drivers and passengers, motorcycle riders, pedestrians and cyclists.

Experienced Car Accident Lawyers in the ACT

If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident in the ACT, regardless of whether you may be fault, you should:

  1. Seek medical attention.
  2. Report your accident to ACT Police immediately. This step is essential if you are ultimately required to submit a claim.
  3. Contact Lionheart Lawyers. We will help you lodge your car accident injury application correctly so that you don’t miss out on any benefits.

Even if you cannot identify the driver or vehicle that caused your accident, you may still be entitled to apply for benefits.

The tragedy of a fatal car accident can bring not only devastating grief, but ongoing psychological trauma to family members. You are entitled to a free initial consultation with the experts at Lionheart Lawyers. If you choose to proceed with our services, we will manage your entire application with utmost sensitivity and compassion while ensuring you receive every benefit you are entitled to.

Making a Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Claim in the ACT

There are strict time limits associated with making an application for personal injury benefits in the ACT, so it is important that you contact us as quickly as possible after your accident.

Initially, due to shock or other reasons, you may not recognise the extent of your injuries caused by the motor vehicle accident. The long-term effects of your injuries are also unlikely to be clear to you early on.

The car accident injury claims experts at Lionheart Lawyers understand precisely how these types of accidents can impact your life. We know exactly what to do to obtain all the support you deserve.

Car accident injuries can encompass:

  • Hand or wrist injuries;
  • Leg, foot or ankle injuries;
  • Whiplash or muscle strains;
  • Torn or sprained ligaments;
  • Back, neck or shoulder injuries;
  • Fractured or broken bones;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Brain or head injuries;
  • Other significant injuries needing surgery;
  • Psychological injuries or illnesses such as anxiety, depression or PTSD.

Under the ACT’s current Motor Accident Injury Scheme, there are various supports available to cover the unexpected costs incurred as a result of your accident, and to help you get your life back on track as soon as possible.

Support for car accident injuries in the ACT may cover:

  • Treatment and care expenses;
  • Loss of income if you are unable to work;
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses;
  • Domestic care expenses for day-to-day tasks;
  • Quality of life benefit, if your injury or impairment is permanent; and
  • Funeral benefits or dependant benefits if a loved one has died in the accident.

Importantly, if you have had an application denied, or disagree with a decision of the insurer and wish to dispute it, then be sure to contact us to understand your rights.

We know that the stress of managing pain, injury and planning for an uncertain future can be overwhelming for you and your family. Trust Lionheart Lawyers to relieve some of your burden by letting us lodge your ACT car accident application for personal injury benefits and manage the process on your behalf.

Our no-win, no-fee policy means we will do everything we can to get you the support you need.
