While injuries may seem unserious from the outset, it is possible these injuries could develop into serious problems long term, if ignored or left untreated.
If you are injured and believe that your injury was sustained as a result of negligence of an employer, other person or governing body, you may be entitled to damages.
Persons suffering from personal injuries not only suffer physically and emotionally, but also experience the financial hardship associated with accruing medical bills and lost time from work.
The extent and the type of injuries sustained in your motor vehicle accident will directly affect the compensation available to you. Furthermore, if you are found to be partially at fault, you may still be able to make a claim, however, your compensable entitlements may be reduced.
To pursue a compensation claim for injuries resulting from a motor vehicle accident, notice must be given against the Compulsory Third Party Insurer (CTP) of the vehicle at most at fault for the accident.

We stress the importance of securing yours rights to pursue a compensation claim in the future in the event that your injuries prove ongoing.
