Negligence in Motor Vehicle Accident Injury Compensation in WA
To be successful in claiming personal injury compensation from your motor vehicle accident, you must prove that you are not entirely at-fault in causing the motor vehicle accident. This means, you can claim compensation if you are partially at fault (contributory negligence) or not at-fault. If the accident investigation found that you are 100% negligent in causing the accident which caused injuries to yourself or others, you won’t be successful in claiming compensation for the motor vehicle accident in WA.
The role of Medical Evidence in Motor Vehicle Accident
Medical evidence plays an important role in determining the quantum of your compensation payout (how much your claim is worth).
The focus of Question 4 is to establish whether you have appropriate medical evidence to establish a link between your injury and your motor vehicle accident. If you have not sought medical attention immediately after the motor vehicle accident, it doesn’t mean that you don’t have a valid motor vehicle accident compensation claim. All it means is we will find ways to prove that your injury is linked to the motor vehicle accident.
What to after a motor vehicle injury?
Ordinarily, injured people are expected to seek medical attention promptly after the motor vehicle accident and report the accident to the police. The accident can be reported to the Police through the “crash report” website.
