If you have been involved in a Motor Traffic incident you will probably be able to claim compensation.
Motor Traffic incidents occur every day and thousands of claims are lodged each year through the Motor Accidents Authority of New South Wales. The Laws relating to Motor Traffic Claims are constantly changing and are extremely complex.
If it was not your fault and you need to recover compensation, lost income and expenses. Even though the majority of Motor Traffic Claims settle out of court, it is important that you have an experienced Compensation Lawyer acting for you, who understands how insurance companies work and who will ensure that you are not under compensated.
Compensation for Motor Traffic Claims includes (but is not necessarily limited to) the following:
- If you were driving a motor vehicle or passenger in a motor vehicle.
- If you were riding or a pillion passenger on a motorcycle.
- If you were riding a bicycle.
- If you were a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle.
- If you are a professional driver of taxi, bus or truck.
- If you were travelling on public transport such as a bus or train.
There are strict deadlines for making a claim for compensation if you have been involved in a Motor Traffic incident so it is important that you receive legal advice on your claim as soon as possible.
If you are worried about incurring legal costs we offer a “NO WIN NO FEE” agreement which ensures that you do not have to pay any legal costs until your claim is successfully completed. That means that you can pursue your claim for compensation without the worry or risk of having to pay legal fees until the end of your claim and only if you receive a compensation payment.
People who are involved in Motor traffic incidents can have their lives greatly affected, it is usually a stressful and troubled time. Lifestyles can be altered, everyday responsibilities, such as meeting financial needs or caring for dependents can become difficult or impossible. It is important to alleviate the worry by placing your matter in the right hands.
We can help you determine:
- If you have a viable motor traffic claim.

- How quickly you can receive compensation.
How long will it take to receive my compensation?
The length of your claim for compensation will depend on the severity of the incident, how it has affected your health and how long it will take for you to recover. We can advise you about this once we have an opportunity to properly assess your circumstances.
The amount of compensation you receive depends on many factors which include:
- 'General’ compensation which provides compensation for the effect of the incident on your everyday life both physically and mentally.
