If you have been injured in a truck accident, whether you were the truck driver, another motorist, cyclist or pedestrian, then you may be eligible to claim compensation under the NSW motor accidents CTP scheme.

Even if you were at fault or partly at fault for the accident, you may still be entitled to make a claim.

If you work as a truck driver and your truck accident occurred in the course of your employment, then you may also be eligible to lodge a workers compensation claim.

Common examples of truck accidents include:

  • Collision with another motor vehicle, including a car, bus, truck or motorcycle;
  • Striking a pedestrian, cyclist or other object;
  • Losing control and crashing, overturning or losing your load.

Lionheart Lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience in motor vehicle compensation claims, including truck accidents, and are experts at obtaining maximum compensation for injured truck drivers and passengers.

Strict time limits apply for making truck accident compensation claims, so contact us as quickly as possible after your accident for a free initial consultation. We will assess your case and advise of all the claims you are eligible to make.

Claiming Compensation for a Truck Accident Injury

Truck accident compensation covers the unexpected costs incurred as a result of your truck accident, so you can recover and resume normal life as soon as possible.

Lionheart Lawyers will simplify your truck accident compensation claim process by:

  1. Obtaining evidence of the accident, such as accident reports, photographs of the accident site and witness statements.
  2. Gathering medical evidence of your injuries or illness caused by the accident.
  3. Lodging your claim with the relevant insurer.

If the insurer does not offer a reasonable settlement for your truck accident claim, then we will guide you through the next steps, which may include commencing court proceedings.

If your case ends up in court, our skilled lawyers are well-equipped to fight on your behalf for the compensation you deserve.

Compensation for truck accident injuries may cover:

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

The total sum you can claim for your truck accident compensation will vary greatly depending on the type of compensation you are eligible for, as well as the nature of your injuries, the circumstances of your accident, and your personal circumstances.

In the unfortunate event that you 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.

On the other hand, if you have been advised by the CTP insurer that you sustained a ‘threshold’ (minor) injury and you wish to dispute this assessment, then call us. We can explain your rights and advise you on the best course of action.

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

Seeking Legal Advice Following a Truck Accident

If you have been involved in a truck accident, even if you were at fault, you should:

  1. Seek medical attention.
  2. Immediately report your accident to the police. You will need an accident report to pursue a claim for compensation.

Our expert team will listen to you, answer your questions, and make it easy to lodge your claim forms correctly, ensuring 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.

Examples of truck accident injuries may include:

  • Neck, back or shoulder injuries;
  • Broken or fractured bones;
  • Muscle strain or whiplash;
  • Hand or wrist injuries;
  • Foot, ankle or leg injuries;
  • Sprains or torn ligaments;
  • Internal bleeding;
  • Brain or head injuries;
  • Other injuries requiring surgery;

Compensation Claims for Fatal Truck Accidents

If your loved one or someone you know has been killed in a truck accident, then you or your family members may be eligible to claim compensation.
