If you have been injured in a car accident, even if you may have been wholly or partly at fault, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in car accident compensation claims with an outstanding track record of obtaining maximum compensation for drivers, passengers, motorbike riders, cyclists and pedestrians.

There are strict time limits associated with making a car accident compensation claim in NSW, so it is crucial that you contact us as quickly as possible after your accident. Our specialised team will advise you of your entitlements and ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to.

There is no cost to reach out to us for an initial consultation so we can expertly assess whether you have a valid claim for compensation.

Legal Advice Following a Car Accident

If you are involved in a car accident, regardless of who may be at fault, you should:

  • Seek medical attention.
  • Report your accident to the police immediately. This is a crucial step if you need to make a claim later.
  • Call the expert team at Lionheart Lawyers for a free initial consultation before lodging your car accident injury claim. We will make sure you lodge all the correct forms so that you don’t miss out any of your entitlements.

Even if you are unable to identify the vehicle or driver that caused your accident, you may still be entitled to bring a claim under the nominal defendant/insurer scheme.

At first, you may not realise the extent of your injuries caused by the car accident. This could be due to shock or the nature of your injuries. It may also be difficult for you to assess the long-term impact of your injuries. This is where Lionheart Lawyers can help. Our expertise in car accident injury claims means we understand how these kinds of accidents can affect your life and know exactly how to obtain maximum compensation.

Examples of car accident injuries include:

  • Whiplash or muscle strain;
  • Hand or wrist injury;
  • Leg, ankle or foot injury;
  • Back, shoulder or neck injury;
  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Sprained or torn ligaments;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Head or brain injury;
  • Other injury requiring surgery;
  • Psychological injury or illness including PTSD, anxiety or depression.

Compensation Claims for Fatal Car Accidents

In the tragic event that your loved one or someone you know has been killed in a car accident, we can help by advising you of all the compensation you and your family members may be eligible to claim.

In addition to the grief that fatal car accidents bring to family members, often the ongoing psychological trauma is long-lasting. Rest assured, the experts at Lionheart Lawyers will advise you of your rights with a free initial consultation, and can manage the entire claims process with compassion and care.

Making a Car Accident Compensation Claim

Car accident compensation exists 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. The types and amounts of compensation you can claim will vary greatly depending on your injuries, personal circumstances, and the circumstances of your accident.

Compensation for car accident injuries may cover:

  • Medical expenses;
  • Loss of income if you are unable to work;
  • Reimbursement of travel expenses;
  • Ongoing medical treatment;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Domestic assistance for day-to-day tasks.

If your injury or impairment is permanent, then you may be entitled to make additional claims, including a TPD (total permanent disability) claim through your superannuation fund.

We simplify the process for lodging your car accident injury compensation claim by:

  1. Gathering evidence of the accident, including any photographs, witness statements and accident reports.
  2. Obtaining medical evidence of your injuries or illness caused by the accident.
  3. Once we have all the documentation in order, we will lodge your claim with the relevant insurer.
  4. If the insurer does not offer a reasonable settlement, then we will guide you through the next steps, which may include commencing court proceedings.

If your car accident claim ends up in court, rest assured that our expert lawyers are ready to fight for you and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Importantly, if you have been advised by the CTP insurer that you sustained a ‘threshold’ (minor) injury and you disagree with this assessment and wish to dispute it, then be sure to contact us to understand your rights.

Dealing with injury, pain and an uncertain future can be overwhelming for you and your family. Let us take away some of the burden by lodging your car accident compensation claim and managing the process from start to finish.

Our no-win, no-fee policy means we will do everything we can to get you the compensation you are entitled to.
