If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident that was not your fault and have sustained injuries as a result, you may be entitled to compensation. Where the identity of the vehicle at fault is known, a claim may be pursued against the CTP insurer of that vehicle. However, even if the identity of the vehicle at fault is not known, a claim for compensation may still be made against the nominal defendant.
If you have been involved in a single vehicle accident that was caused by the condition of the road upon which you were travelling, you may also be entitled to compensation.
Compensation payable as a result of injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident can include damages for:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of income (both in the past and future)
- Care and assistance provided to you by family and/or friends
- Medical expenses incurred
- Anticipated future medical expenses
Strict time limits apply to bringing a claim so we recommend that you speak with one of our practitioners without delay.
