In Queensland, registered vehicles are required to have ‘compulsory third party insurance’ (CTP). If you have sustained personal injury due to a car accident, your action will be brought against the driver of the ‘at fault’ vehicle and their CTP insurer.
The effect of the compulsory third party insurance scheme is that the driver of the ‘at fault’ vehicle will not be personally out-of-pocket if a claim is brought. This is reassuring, especially if they are a friend, relative, employer or employee.
The following is an overview of the CTP claims process:
- Complete & submit claim
- Lodgement confirmation
- Rehabilitation & Treatment
- Liability assessment
- Insurer obtains information
- Injury stablised
- Claim negotiation
- Claim settlement
Splatt Lawyers can provide the services and support of lawyers with particular expertise in handling car accident claims to help you navigate the CTP claims process.
What you do after a car accident can affect what you can recover when you claim compensation for injuries or damages. Immediately after a motor vehicle accident, you should take the following steps:
- Collect information from those involved in the accident and who witnessed the accident.
- Seek medical attention immediately.
- If it is possible, advise the police of your accident. If you are unable to report the accident immediately to the police, you should do so as soon as you are able to (if the police do not attend the scene).
- Seek legal advice regarding your rights. Contact Splatt Lawyers on 1800 700 125.
