In New South Wales, all registered vehicles must have third party insurance, which is generally known as CTP or ‘green slip’ insurance. You will not be able to register your car without it, and the reason it’s compulsory is that it covers anyone injured in a motor vehicle accident.
At PK Simpson, we act for anyone suffering a personal injury from an accident whether the driver at fault is unregistered or unknown. When making a third party or CTP claim in NSW, there is a strict time limit and procedural requirements that must be followed.

How to File a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim
If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident that wasn’t your fault and you suffered an injury as a result, then it is likely you will get compensation for your injuries.
However, to obtain the best result possible for you if you have sustained a car accident personal injury, our specialist lawyers can help. We not only help you complete a form but also advise you about all the requirements on how to file a motor vehicle accident claim so you receive the optimum level of benefits.
To be eligible for income loss from the date of the accident, be aware that there is a requirement to lodge your initial CTP insurance claim within 28 days from the date of the accident. You then must lodge your final claim three months from the date of the accident, however, this may be extended in some circumstances.

How to Settle a Motor Vehicle Accident Claim
Once you’ve submitted your CTP injury claim, a requirement of the process is that the insurer will review it and write to you within four weeks to inform you whether you have been successful or not. If the insurer accepts your claim and settles it, you will begin receiving payments within two weeks. Your insurer will detail in the correspondence whether it deems your injuries minor or not non-minor and also what payments you are entitled to receive, and who was at fault in the accident.
A requirement of the motor vehicle accident regulations is to allow you to challenge your insurer’s decisions. At PK Simpson we not only challenge the decision, we also obtain further medical evidence to support a successful challenge. We have experienced doctors who can assess your injuries and provide the very specific evidence required to get your claim over the line. We’ll navigate the barriers set in place by the insurer so that your claim is given priority in an Insurer Internal Review and if that is unsatisfactory, your dispute can be escalated to the Dispute Resolution Service (DRS).
Compensation claims are legally complex and the best way to proceed in any legal dispute is with supportive evidence. In compensation claims, our evidence is medical records and reports. Not only do you need the right legal team, but you also need to be in contact with medical professionals who know how to assess you in light of a car accident claim. With over 36 years of compensation experience, we have the best medical professionals in Sydney to help maximise your claim.
