Holiday Accident Claim
Published 03 Jan 2011
What do you do if you have a Motor Vehicle Accident when you’re away on holiday?
Your enjoyable, relaxing and long-anticipated holiday can be ruined in an instant by a motor vehicle accident.
If you have a motor vehicle accident while you are on holidays you should not delay getting legal advice because there are quite strict time limits when making a claim for motor accidents compensation.
Regardless of which State the motor vehicle accident occurred in you need to ensure that you make a report to the police about the accident if they didn’t attend the scene of the accident. It is also very important to get all the details of the other vehicles involved in the accident including the registration number of the other cars and the names and contact details of the other drivers and any witnesses to the accident.
At Gerard Malouf & Partners our expert motor vehicle accident lawyers are available for free over the phone advice, so regardless of where you are on holiday you will be able to access expert legal advice easily by calling and talking to one of our expert lawyers 1800 004 878.
Our expert motor accidents lawyers will talk you through issues including who is liable for the accident and what to do if the other driver was unregistered or uninsured.
At Gerard Malouf & Partners our expert motor accidents lawyers will also advise you on whether you, or anyone in the car with you at the time of the accident, has an entitlement to make a claim for compensation, for any injuries caused by the accident. This can vary from State to State, which is why it is imperative to talk to lawyers who practice motor vehicle accident law everyday. Motor vehicle accident compensation generally includes:
- Reimbursement of any medical and rehabilitation expenses incurred as a result of the accident and potential payment for any future medical expenses.
- Compensation for economic loss including loss of wages and superannuation and potential future economic loss.
- Compensation for non-economic loss meaning compensation for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life in certain circumstances.
- Legal costs.
