Find out how much you can claim.Get started
A car accident injury claim provides financial relief when you’ve been injured and had time off work and unplanned expenses.
But your injuries may have led to other health issues and complications. For example, a knee injury can cause a limp, leading to a back injury.
We’ll match you with a specialist car accident lawyer, build a personal relationship with you and your family, and look beyond your obvious injuries to claim everything you’re entitled to. This can make a big difference to the amount of compensation you receive.
What can I claim?
Following is a summary of the support payments and lump sum compensation payments you may be eligible to claim under the Victorian TAC insurance scheme.
|Medical expenses and supports||
|Common law compensation||

Injured Australians seeking compensation deserve a thorough solicitor. And a thorough solicitor is someone who never cuts corners and will properly map out the road to collecting the right evidence to give their client the best chance of achieving an ultimate outcome.

Being a calm-natured and patient person, I find that the best way to help my clients with their claims is to first focus on listening to them and understanding their needs, and then set about fulfilling those needs and exceeding their expectations.
Bill CorteseManaging Solicitor
As Managing Solicitor, I pride myself on being an expert communicator and a resourceful negotiator. These are the attributes necessary to turn a good outcome into an optimal outcome.

Law Partners are the best. Throughout, Tanja Maksimovic, and team Jessica Terre, and Sarah Starnovsky, were clear they knew how to get the best outcome for me, and I was confident in them without hesitation. This was about compensation for injuries in an MVA. My heartfelt thanks. I recommend them 100%.

I wouldn’t hesitate recommending you to anyone who needs your services.

Frequently asked questions.
A no win no fee lawyer offers to run your case for you and only get paid when you win. If you choose the right lawyer, it’s an excellent option that allows you to pursue your claim without any risk, but it’s important to check the lawyer’s costs agreement to fully understand what’s covered. With some no win no fee lawyers you can still end up having to pay thousands of dollars in disbursements if your case is unsuccessful. This is because their no win no fee agreements cover their professional fees but not the costs they incur. At Law Partners, our no win no fee, no disbursements guarantee covers all our costs and disbursements as well as our professional fees, so you can pursue your claim with peace of mind.
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.
In Victoria, there are three ways you may be able to claim a lump sum payout following a car accident:
- 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.
- If you have an impairment assessed at 11% or more you may be entitled to a permanent impairment lump sum.
- 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 car accident lawyer and get free advice on your entitlement to a lump sum payout.
