Motor Vehicle Accidents

By far the most common motor vehicle accidents are accidents involving one or more motor vehicles such as cars however motor vehicle accidents come in all shapes and sizes.

Personal Injury Helpline can provide you with obligation free advice from Personal Injury Lawyers concerning any motor vehicle accident including accidents involving motor cycles, bicycles, pedestrians, trucks and watercraft including boats and jet ski’s.

For instance Queensland and New South Wales each have a compulsory third party system under which claimant’s can recover an amount for:

  1. General Damages being an amount for pain and suffering limited in New South Wales to claims involving greater than 10% whole person impairment.
  2. Medical Expenses
  3. Care and assistance (again limited by legislation) and
  4. Economic Loss both past and future

Western Australia has a similar system with limits on pain and suffering awards, while other States and Territories have variations on this system.

Our Personal Injury Lawyers and consultants can advise you almost immediately of the types of damages that you might recover based upon your individual circumstances and location. By calling us or arranging for us to contact you we will explain to you the process that needs to be undertaken to recover those damages and the likelihood of your success.This will occur when we first speak with you.

Should you wish to pursue a claim our Personal Injury Lawyers will arrange for your claim to be lodged, assessments to be undertaken by medical specialists and an assessment to be made of your entitlement in terms of damages.

We have legal advisors who will provide you with No Win No Fee advice and you don’t pay us or our specialist Lawyers anything in the unlikely event that we or they are not successful.

The process is relatively simple and we would encourage you to allow us the opportunity to explain it to you so as to ensure that your rights are protected. Strict Limitation Periods apply to Personal Injury Claims and your rights can be lost if action is not taken within specific time periods relevant to each of Queensland and New South Wales. Other States have their own limitation periods.

Please contact us on either 1800 HELPLINE (1800 435 754) or complete the attached and we will contact you almost immediately.
