Collect the other parties’ names, addresses, registration numbers, and insurance details and get witness details if possible.

    If you’ve been injured in a car accident, the police must be notified as soon as possible but within 28 days. You will need to complete a Motor Accident Act Personal Injury Claim Form or get help from PK Simpson car accident lawyers to do so.

    You will need to consult a doctor or hospital and get a medical certificate. Gather the certificate and all the receipts and accounts you accrued for your medical treatment and any out-of-pocket expenses. This documentation, plus the police report, is sent to the CTP insurer of the motor vehicle you believe is at fault. You will receive a CTP reference number, and a decision will be made to ascertain who was liable.

    If liability is accepted, the insurer is obliged to pay for the following:

    • Reasonable or necessary hospital, medical, rehabilitation, pharmaceutical, respite care and attendant care expenses.
    • Reasonable and necessary travel and accommodation expenses associated with any treatment or rehabilitation provided’

    If the CTP insurer denies liability, you should contact your solicitor immediately. To be sure, it’s best to see a lawyer to handle your claim.
