What To Do If You’ve Been in a Major Road Accident in NSW
Even a minor motor vehicle accident in NSW can raise legal issues about who was at fault for damage to individuals or property. As a driver you should follow the advice below:
The process involves getting the other driver’s details – name and address, phone number, car registration number, their insurance company.
If the accident is major, do the above and call the NSW police but never admit you were at fault. If it’s a minor accident, report it to the police and get a report number for a possible NSW insurance claim for a compensation payout.
Have a medical checkup even if you believe your injuries are minor – shock can conceal the severity of whiplash for instance, which might not reveal itself for months.
Call your insurance company and make a claim.
Lodge your claim within three months after the accident, or within 28 days if you wish to claim ‘back pay’ for loss of earnings.
Get witness statements, names and phone numbers.

How to Know If You’re Eligible For Compensation
If you have been injured in a car crash in NSW, you may be able to make a motor accident compensation claim for personal injury under the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) scheme. Your eligibility for compensation will depend on your injury’s diagnosis.
In NSW, if you are deemed to have a minor injury, that assessment will mean you are likely to recover well after treatment, independently manage your symptoms with some support, and return to your usual work or other activities within a short time. The two types of minor injury are soft tissue and minor psychiatric or psychological injury.
According to SIRA, major injuries in NSW include spinal cord damage, multiple amputations, brain injuries, blindness and major burns. If you’re unsure about your level of injury, check with your lawyers. Call PK Simpson MVA lawyers today on 1300 757 467.
Claims You May Be Eligible For
If you’ve sustained an injury in a motor vehicle accident in NSW, you may be eligible without lodging a form for an immediate compensation payout of up to $5,000 for your loss of earnings and medical expenses. The Australian Medical Association provides a list of medical and service fees and these are the maximum amount the insurer has to pay.
You may be eligible for payments for past loss of earnings after six months if the $5,000 sum allows, but the first priority in cases of injury compensation is a payout for your medical expenses so you’re back on your feet.
Motor Vehicle Accident Compensation Claims Process
The motor vehicle accident claim process is as follows:
Report the accident to the Police within 28 days otherwise it may affect your claim.
