Car Accident Lawyer - Frequently Asked Questions

If you or your loved one has been injured in a car accident in New South Wales, you may be entitled to compensation. You may be eligibleto make a claim if you were a driver or passenger, rider or motorbike passenger, pedestrian, or cyclist. You can make a claim whether your injury is physical or psychological. If you’re apprehensive to make a claim due to potential costs, our car accident lawyers work on a no win, no fee basis, meaning you won’t be stuck footing the bill.

There are some restrictions on who can make a claim (such as if you are charged with or convicted of a serious driving offence in connection with the accident or were the at-fault driver or an uninsured vehicle and you knew the vehicle was uninsured).

At our no-obligation, free initial consultation, we can discuss with you whether our car accident lawyers can assist you with your claim.

Our motor vehicle lawyers in Sydney will guide you to make a compensation claim. The claim is with the insurer of the vehicle that you believe is most at fault for the motor accident. If you don’t know which insurer that is, we can help you find out.

You will need the registration number (license plate number) of the vehicle that you believe is most at fault. If you do not know the registration number, we can help you find it.

When you suffer an injury, you can be affected in many ways. You will require medical treatment, you may be unable to work, and you could need help around the home. You might suffer losses in the future which need to be thought about today.

Whatever your circumstances, our lawyers for motor vehicle accidents in Sydney can help you claim the benefits and compensation you are entitled to.

Regardless of who caused the motor accident, you can claim up to 6 months of:

  • reasonable and necessary medical and treatment expenses (e.g. general practitioner consultations, rehabilitation, medication, and physiotherapy);
  • a percentage of your pre-accident weekly income if you need time off work; and
  • domestic and personal care if you need help while you recover.


The benefits you can receive after 6 months depend on the degree to which you were at fault for the accident and whether your injury is “minor” (as defined in relevant legislation).

An experienced solicitor for motor vehicle accidents in Sydney can advise you on what you can claim and help you to receive the benefits you are entitled to.

Making a claim begins with our no-obligation, free initial consultation. You will meet with one of our experienced lawyers for motor vehicle accidents in Sydney. At Care Lawyers, we operate on a no win, no fee basis, and will meet with you at a time and place convenient to you. At the consultation, we will discuss the circumstances of the motor accident, your injuries, and the benefits you may be entitled to. Our advice will be tailored to your personal circumstances.

After the initial consultation, we will handle all the hard work of the claim process for you, so that you can focus on your recovery. We will assist you so that you can get all the treatment you need to get better. We will begin to gather evidence including police reports, witness statements, medical records, treating health professional reports, and arranging independent expert medical examinations. We may need to wait for your injury to stabilise (i.e. reach a point where your injury is unlikely to get better or worse) so that we can accurately assess your entitlement to compensation for future loss. Your lawyer for motor vehicle accidents in Sydney will build your case so that you are in the best possible position to obtain the maximum compensation.

We will work collaboratively with the insurer to ensure that your claim runs smoothly and is resolved promptly.

Once we have collected all the necessary evidence, we will advise you about the value of your claim and arrange to meet with the insurer to negotiate a settlement of your claim. We will always negotiate hard to obtain the best possible result for you and will never resolve your claim without your express instructions. If your claim settles, you will promptly receive your compensation. If the claim does not settle, we can progress your claim to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to.

Throughout the process, you will have a dedicated lawyer working for you. You will be able to easily contact them throughout the claim process. You can speak with them as much, or as little, as you like. We believe there is no such thing as a silly question and are always there to answer any questions you may have. With our transparent, no-win, no-fee, fixed-fee pricing, there are no extra costs for speaking with your lawyer.

We know that when people have bad experiences with a claim, it is often because they were not kept informed, were unable or found it difficult to speak with their lawyer, or were shocked at the bill they received after the claim.

We deliver a personalised service. You will have a team of experienced lawyers looking after your case who is easy to contact. We will meet with you at times and locations convenient to you.

Workers compensation law

In NSW, a claim for motor vehicle accident compensation is made against the compulsory third-party insurer of the vehicle most at-fault for the motor accident. It is very unlikely that a claim would need to be made against the driver of the vehicle (and they are unlikely to be involved in the claim process other than, perhaps, providing a statement to the insurer at the very beginning).

There are strict time limits to make a claim. Claims should be made as soon as possible and, in any event, within 28 days of any motor accidents. If you have not lodged a claim within 28 days, you can still submit a claim up to 3 months after the accident, but you may be ineligible for benefits between the date of the accident and when you made the motor accident claims. You also need to report the motor accident to the police within 28 days.

Our expert motor vehicle accident lawyers in Sydney can help to ensure you comply with all applicable time limits. If you are worried that you may have missed a deadline, we would be happy to speak with you.

If you were in a car accident and believe the other driver was at fault, you may be able to recover your damages and losses from the other driver. If the other party is insured, they can file a claim with their insurance company. However, there are strict time limits for filing claims, so you should contact one of our expert car accident lawyers as soon as possible.

Car accidents are becoming more common on our busy Sydney roads, and being injured in one can be a terrifying experience. It can be difficult to know where to begin and what needs to be addressed first when dealing with injuries sustained, property damage, and financial ramifications.

If you were in a car accident, hiring a car accident lawyer in Sydney is a good idea to help you get the compensation you’re entitled to. Our team of car accident lawyers are skilled professionals who understand the compensation claims process.
