What can I claim if I made a car accident Injury claim?

You can claim expenses, losses and damages from the following categorises, if applicable to your situation:
- Past and future medical expenses;
- Past and future economic loss (e.g. loss of wages and superannuation) ;
- Compensation for pain and suffering;
- Loss of business profits;
- Voluntary services provided by your family and friends assisting you with domestic chores, self care and travel to medical appointments;
- Paid services (e.g. cost of someone to mow the lawn, costs of a paid carer); and
- Travel expenses.
In addition to a motor vehicle accident / car accident injury compensation claim, in most circumstances the CTP insurer will pay for rehabilitation and medical expenses initially incurred after a car accident.
Depending the severity of your injuries and percentage of total whole body impairment, you may also entitle to TPD Superannuation Benefits. TPD benefit is often part of the superannuation benefit, Foyle Legal can advise you on TPD claims.
How much car accident injury compensation can I claim?
