Did you know?
An accident in which an injury was sustained must be reported to the police by law. As a rule a personal injury claim against the CTP insurance cannot be processed until the accident has been reported and the police supply you with a Traffic Incident Number. There are strict time limits in which the claim must be reported and we would recommend you report the matter as soon as possible.
A personal injury claim against the relevant CTP insurer needs to be lodged ASAP. There are strict time limits that apply to lodging such personal injury claims, which vary State to State and if this period expires prior to a claim being lodged it makes the pursuit of a claim significantly more difficult and sometimes impossible. It is therefore important that you discover your compensation entitlements ASAP and please immediately call FAIR CLAIM today for assistance.
REMEMBER – depending on what you were doing and where you were going when you were injured; you may also have compensation entitlements under other insurance. If you were working at the time of the accident, or even travelling to or from work, you could have entitlements under Workers Compensation. For advice in this respect contact FAIR CLAIM today.
Your rights to injury compensation will depend on the following;
-Where your injury happened
- Who was to blame for the accident or injuries
- What injuries you have suffered and whether or not they are permanent
