Frequently Asked Questions

More Information

Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance is the insurance plan required for all drivers in Australia. This insurance is typically purchased when registering a car and may even be included as a part of your registration cost. CTP insurance is important for car accident victims because it’s meant to cover any personal injury payouts that result from an incident.

Immediately following a car crash, call the police if you suspect the other driver is under to influence, and call for paramedics if you suspect you have an injury.

Following this, calling your insurer is advised, as well as taking details from other parties and witnesses. Note down any details including time, data and take photos of the scene. 

Each motor vehicle accident claim requires a police report, accident notification form and personal injury claim form. The claim form is central to your claim and we recommend speaking with a lawyer to ensure the best chance of success. Once you lodge your claim, an Independent Medical Assessor reviews your claims. 

Getting hit by a car when you are cycling can have devastating effects. In a motor vehicle accident involving a cyclist, the cyclist is almost always injured far worse than anyone else. In addition to personal injury, a cycling accident claim may include pain and suffering damages.

The main goal when pursuing a claim for a bicycling accident involving a motor vehicle is providing the proof of fault and of your injuries and potential other losses. Your accident claim will need to be presented by a qualified attorney who is familiar with cycling accident scenarios, and who will be able to give you the support you need.

At Gerard Malouf & Partners, we will work hard to get you the cycling accident compensation you deserve.
