Truck Accident Injury Compensation
If you drive a truck for a living, then you run a high risk of being involved in an accident on our roads.
In New South Wales, people injured in a truck accident, are entitled to make a claim for compensation for their injuries under the motor accidents compensation scheme.
At Gerard Malouf and Partners, our expert compensation lawyers have advised countless numbers of truck drivers and passengers on their entitlement to truck accident compensation. We have also advised on the entitlements to compensation, under the workers compensation scheme if they were working at the time of the truck accident. We have also acted successfully against insurance companies, when they attempt to limit the amount of the compensation payment by arguing that the truck was partially at fault for the accident, for example, by driving over the speed limit.
Generally, under the motor accident compensation scheme, people injured in truck accidents, including truck drivers, are entitled to receive motor accident compensation that can include:
- Reimbursement of hospital, medical and rehabilitation expenses
- Compensation for any future medical expenses in relation to injuries sustained in the accident
- Compensation for past economic loss, such as loss of wages while you recover from your injuries
- Compensation for future economic loss where your working life has been reduced as a result of your injuries
- Lump sum compensation if you have suffered a permanent impairment as a result of your injuries
- Lump sum compensation for your pain and suffering
