Process

How to claim car accident compensation

Many people are unaware that they may be entitled to compensation from a motor vehicle accident, even if they weren’t driving a car or motorbike!

This is because the compensation scheme doesn’t just cover people injured in car accidents. For example, the New South Wales Motor Accidents Compensation Scheme extends to passengers injured in car accidents, pedestrians crossing the road, cyclists and pillion passengers on motorbikes.

 Even if the car at fault was uninsured, unregistered or unidentified. In each of Australia’s five other states, people who are not injured in car accidents are not necessarily excluded from making compensation claims.

Our experienced team have built Gerard Malouf & Partners into one of Australia’s leading Car Accident Law Firms. We know the “in’s and out’s” of each state’s legislation because we deal with them everyday. We know the insurance companies, and we know how to get ahead of the tactics they use to minimise compensation payouts. And we have the resources and knowledge to achieve the best possible outcome – helping you to receive the maximum compensation payout you may be entitled to.

Maximise Your Compensation

Find the right lawyer for your car accident claim

If you have been injured in a car accident, you need to talk to an expert car accident compensation lawyer.  Your lawyer should begin with a no obligation call or face to face consultation in order to evaluate your claim and provide you with greater understanding of your right to consultation. A lawyer will be able to discuss your circumstances and assess your compensation claim and the compensation you may be entitled to including:
  • Immediate payment of your medical expenses up to $5,000.
  • Reimbursement of medical and rehabilitation expenses, as well as potential payment for any future medical expenses.
  • Compensation for loss of wages, superannuation and potential future economic loss.
  • Compensation for pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
  • Legal costs.

Following this call, you should have a feel for whether the lawyer is the right ‘fit’ for you, and understand the financial implications of your potential claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

More information about car accident claims

Commonly asked questions concerning motor vehicle accidents and claims for compensation.

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. 

Where a vehicle cannot be identified, the legislation provides a nominal defendant, which is most cases is the Motor Accidents Authority. A nominal defendant is a substitute for the other party.

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. 

A no-win, no-fee lawyer can help you pursue your case without the financial risk that would usually be associated with a lawsuit.

Opting for a no-win, no-fee legal team means you will only be charged for their services if you succeed in your claim. This takes away a considerable amount of pressure, allowing you to proceed with a case without worrying about how to cover the costs if you lose.

Our Client
Our Promise To You

Our Difficult Case Policy

At Gerard Malouf & Partners we have introduced a policy that if any case appears to be overly difficult or unlikely to obtain a good result for the client our lawyers must bring it to the attention of the management team via a detailed pro forms explanation early and then our management team will take all steps possible to ensure it is successful and that we obtain the maximum result for the client.

This is unlike other law firms who often run compensation claims in a mechanical way. At Gerard Malouf & Partners, our personal injury claims services handle each claim thoroughly and comprehensively prepare it in every aspect.

This is more tedious, more complex and costlier for our firm in some ways but the best result will be achieved every time for our clients seeking accident injury compensation service. It is our professional obligation to strive not just for some justice but for the maximum achievable. This is our core philosophy and what differentiates us from other law firms.
