Why Is It Necessary To Make A Claim With Car Accident Lawyers Sydney?
In NSW it is possible to lodge a claim with your CTP insurer. The information you need is:
- the registration details of the vehicle that was at fault;
- a police incident report number.
Your insurer can pay your treatment expenses and lost earnings. Treatment expenses are those which are deemed ‘reasonable and necessary’ and ‘related to the injuries caused by the motor accident’.
A time limit of 6 months applies in which an injured individual must bring his/her claim. ‘Out of time’ claims can still be processed. You should contact us immediately (car accident lawyers Sydney) if you think you have an ‘out of time’ car accident compensation claim.
As you can see, whether or not the insurer wants to pay and how much depends on the severity of your injury and legal argument. The difference between compensation results is based on evidence to support your claim and being represented by a respected compensation law firm.
