Frequently asked questions.

You can lodge your own claim without using a lawyer. However, it’s important to understand that if you leave out important details in your application, or if your medical assessment isn’t completed correctly, it’s likely you’ll miss out on benefits you’re entitled to. Our vehicle accident lawyers can help you claim everything you’re entitled to, and we’ll provide free advice over the phone.

Here are three ways our lawyers can help you with your motor accident injury claim:

  1. Give you free advice before you submit your claim. It’s critical that your application is filled out correctly, and that your injuries are properly assessed, otherwise you could miss out on compensation you’re entitled to.
  1. Help you if you disagree with a TAC decision on your entitlements. We can review the decision and provide free legal advice on your options.
  1. Help you claim lump sum common law compensation or permanent impairment benefits. These lump sums can be substantial, and our motor vehicle accident lawyers are highly skilled at winning lump sum claims. We win over 99% of our cases.

We’ll cover all the costs to run your case and we work on a no win no fee, no disbursements basis, so you’ll only need to pay us if we win, and you receive your motor accident compensation.

You have one year from the date of the accident or the date when your injury first manifests itself to submit your claim.

However, the TAC may also accept your claim if it’s made within three years of the accident or the date when the injury first manifests itself, and you have reasonable grounds for the delay in making your claim

You should receive a decision from the TAC on whether it’s accepting or denying your claim within 21 days. If you don’t get a decision or your claim is denied, you can ask for a review by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT). You can also call us on 13 15 15 for free legal advice on your options.

In Victoria, there are three ways you may be able to claim a lump sum payout following a motor vehicle accident:

  1. If you weren’t at fault in the accident, you may be entitled to common law compensation lump sums for loss of past and future earnings, and pain and suffering.
  2. If you have an impairment assessed at 11% or more you may be entitled to a permanent impairment lump sum.
  3. If you can’t return to work following your accident, you may be eligible for a TPD lump sum through your super fund.

You can call 13 15 15 to speak to a specialist motor vehicle accident lawyer and get free advice on your entitlement to lump sum payouts.
