- Exchange insurance details and vehicle details when possible
- Take photographic or video graphic evidence of the scene of accident if possible. This will assist the fault investigation in a later stage

Why do I keep receiving calls from people I do not know about my truck accident?
If you are getting cold calls or unsolicited visits in the hospital about your truck accident, it is likely that the person contacting you is “claim farming”. Claim farmers are relentless and aggressive in obtaining your personal information. If you are contacted by a claim farmer, please do not provide any personal information. Otherwise, your personal information may be sold to truck injury lawyers or other companies for commercial gain.
Time Limits - How long do I have to make a truck accident claim in Western Australia?
Generally a claim for compensation should be made with the Insurance Commission of Western Australia as soon as possible. You generally have 3 years from the date of accident (three years minus one day) to commence legal proceedings for a truck accident claim regarding personal injury.
If your truck accident happened during your employment, you can make a worker’s compensation claim which the law says has to be made within 12 months (see Section 178 Workers Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981 for more details). In practice, it is best to make a worker’s compensation claim at the earliest possible for two reasons:
- If your injury is serious and it is caused by the negligence of your employer, you may be able to make a common law claim. You have 3 years from the time of accident to make claim as explained regarding motor vehicle accidents above.
- If you don’t make a worker’s compensation claim as early as practicable, insurance company will often allege that your claim is not caused by your employment or they have been prejudiced by the late notification, and often reject your claim.

It is important to investigate and work through all feasible compensation options carefully before settlement. Once you settled your truck accident claim, you will not able to claim more compensation for the same accident.
Who will pay for my truck crash compensation?

- If you were not at fault or partially not at fault for the truck a claim can be made with the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA);
- If you were at fault, but were in the course of your employment, you can made a workers compensation claim.
Can I represent myself following a truck accident without a truck crash lawyer?
