NSW Vehicle Accidents
If you were injured in an vehicle accident you may be able to make a claim for compensation. Strict time limits apply.
Many people are unaware that they may be entitled to compensation under the New South Wales motor accidents compensation scheme. This is because the compensation scheme doesn’t just cover people injured in car accidents. The motor accident compensation scheme extends to passengers injured in car accidents, pedestrians crossing the road, cyclists and pillion passengers on motorbikes. The motor accident compensation scheme also covers people injured in car accidents where the car that was at fault, was uninsured or unregistered or where the car cannot be identified as it was a ‘hit and run’.
- Immediate payment of your medical expenses up to $5,000.00.
- Reimbursement of medical and rehabilitation expenses and potential payment for any future medical expenses.
- Compensation for economic loss including loss of wages and superannuation and potential future economic loss.
- Compensation for non-economic loss meaning compensation for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Compensation for non-economic loss will only be available if it is found that you have suffered a Whole Person Impairment of over 10%.
- Legal costs.

I can’t be any happier with TPD lawyer Warren, and what he did for my case. TPD insurance company delayed my case, didn’t reply to me and had put me under a lot of stress during their process. Warren helped me nagivated TPD and won my case with a great result all within 3 months. If you are having trouble with TPD, I can’t reccomend Warren enough, because you will be able to focus on your treatment without having to deal with the stress from TPD insurance company. Thanks Warren, you really helped me out.
