MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT

Unfortunately, even the most careful drivers can be involved in a car accident. Today’s traffic environment is busy, and in Australia, the number of registered vehicles increase year on year. It is essential to be aware of your rights if you are unfortunate enough to be involved in a car accident, and that means getting the right help.

Our specialist lawyers possess the knowledge and skills to provide you with the right assistance when making a motor vehicle accident claim, also known as a CTP claim. Motor vehicle collisions and car accident compensation are specialised areas of law, and at Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, our injury law specialists can guide you through this complex area of law.

REPRESENTING YOUR RIGHTS, PROTECTING YOUR INTERESTS

Complex laws and safeguards are in place to deal with motor vehicle accident claims in Australia. The good news is that they exist to ensure valid claimants are compensated correctly and fairly.

Motor accident compensation is about getting you the help you need when you have been the victim of events outside your control. That is why it is vitally important you seek legal advice after an accident. It is essential you consult with an expert in compensation law when physical or psychological trauma affects your ability to work or function.

STATES

Different laws apply depending on which Australian state or territory the accident occurred. It is therefore essential to get appropriate advice, and at Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, we have experienced lawyers across a range of states and territories to provide specialist knowledge of the legislative framework in the relevant jurisdiction.   By enlisting the assistance of Kingsley Lawson Lawyers you stand to secure the best possible outcome. Our years of expertise will be the help you need – when you need it most.

 

OUR EXPERTS AS SOON AS YOU NEED THEM – BECAUSE TIME MATTERS

It is also important to be aware that strict time limits apply when making car accident claims. Whilst time limits for lodgement of claims differ from state to state the most crucial thing to bear in mind is that time is of the essence in all claims. From the moment you call Kingsley Lawson Lawyers we will provide the advice you need to ensure time limits are met and your case proceeds as quickly as possible.

If you suspect you have left it too late to claim, we may still be able to help – we specialise in time limit extension applications. Our team of car accident claims lawyers can assess your case and recommend the best way forward. 

OPPOSITION

Insurance companies spend millions of dollars every year in an effort to avoid paying claims. Unfortunately, the insurance business is just that – a business.

Shareholders demand profits and insurance companies employ vast numbers of corporate law firms in an effort to keep pay-outs low, and profits high. At Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, our business is to make sure that you get a fair deal. Our experts and lawyers will work tirelessly on your behalf to ensure a level playing field.

Insurance companies not only have access to law professionals; they routinely use the services of doctors and medical experts and will employ investigation personnel in order to attempt to reduce or even defeat compensation claims.  When it comes to liability for a claim, CTP insurers will often use their specialist knowledge to try and avoid liability for a claim – and that is why an injured person will rarely achieve a fair outcome without a specialist compensation lawyer on their side.

NO WIN, NO FEE

Injury victims are rarely in a position to pay legal costs and the expenses required to gather expert evidence to prove a claim. At Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, we can review your case and commonly offer to act on a No Win, No Fee basis.

No win, No fee costs agreements mean there are no upfront fees payable by our clients.  The total amount of legal costs in each matter will depend on the work required to resolve your case, but we can review your situation and give an estimate that will generally be accurate unless something unforeseen occurs.  It is important to bear in mind that if your claim is successful then the Defendant to your claim will pay a significant proportion, but not all, of your overall legal costs.

Whether you have been in a car accident, motorcycle collision, or a truck accident, at Kingsley Lawson Lawyers, we are here to provide the expert advice you need. We aim to help you navigate the complex world of insurance claims, and help you get back on your feet. Remember, car accident injury claims are time-sensitive – so call us today on 1800 960 096.
