Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer Gold Coast
Motor Vehicle Accidents
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident then you may be able to recover a range of compensation benefits whether you are a pedestrian, a passenger in a vehicle or even a driver. The basic rule is that if there is fault of another party in the accident which has caused your injuries then you will likely have a claim. The ‘at fault’ party will likely be held negligent and you will be entitled to damages from a compulsory third party insurance company. The damages do NOT come from the ‘at fault’ person personally. Southside Legal has expert Gold Coast car accident lawyers that can provide legal advice and support you through making a compensation claim if you were not at fault, even if you don’t have insurance.
Motor vehicle accidents include all types of vehicles including cars, motorcycles, trucks and trailers. Compensation can apply whether there are one or more vehicles involved in the accident. Even if the cause of the accident is an unidentified or unregistered vehicle there is the opportunity to recover damages.
Under the Motor Accidents Insurance Act there is a set procedure to follow to secure compensation. Time limits do apply to these claims and accordingly we urge you not to wait too long before consulting Southside Legal. If you have been injured or suffered any financial loss as a result of an accident you may be eligible to make a claim, we are happy to assist by answering any questions you have and providing you with a free claim assessment.
Damages can be recovered for a range of items including general damages (pain and suffering), out-of-pocket expenses, economic loss both past and future, rehabilitation expenses, gratuitous services provided to you in certain circumstances and for various other items depending on the circumstances.
If you do commence proceedings for compensation do not be concerned if you think that a close friend or a family member is responsible for the collision. They will not be personally responsible for the damages payable to you which will be paid by the CTP Insurer.
Our Southside Legal car accident lawyers will guide you through the claims process and carefully explain all options open to you and ensure you are kept fully informed and up to date at all times.
