The law requires vehicles to be covered by a third party insurance policy. This policy covers the risk of liability for personal injury caused by a car accident. According to law, NSW CTP policies only cover injury sustained by the driver that is at fault in a motor vehicle accident for medical expenses determined to be reasonable and necessary and/or lost earnings incurred within six months of the date of accident. However it doesn’t cover injuries where no driver is at fault or to the extent that the injured person causes their own injury.
Third party insurance compensates the victim for the expenses related to their injury. These include medical and care expenses and compensation for lost income, including future income. It also covers compensation claims for permanent incapacity, compensation for pain and suffering and for loss of enjoyment of life.
The law also provides a “nominal defendant” scheme so that victims are not disadvantaged if they are injured by a vehicle that is not insured or that cannot be identified.
By its nature, the CTP scheme means that you will be dealing with an insurance company when you make a car crash compensation claim. In most cases, claims are dealt with on the basis of an informal settlement with only a few claims needing to go to court.
It is important to contact a car accident compensation lawyer as soon as possible after an accident as we can then ensure that you get appropriate treatment for your injuries and keep all necessary documentation and records to substantiate your claims. This is important because the requirements for proof can be complex, particularly where you want to claim loss of opportunity to earn future income.
