Compulsory third party claims in the ACT
By law, any vehicle registered in the ACT is required to have compulsory third party (CTP) insurance. Therefore, any claim brought against a driver of an ACT registered vehicle will ultimately be a claim against their insurer.
Contact with the insurer for your motor vehicle accident claim
We recommend that you contact us as soon as possible after your motor vehicle accident occurs. We can deal with the CTP insurer on your behalf. One of the advantages of legal representation is that your interests will be protected by your lawyer.
Once you have retained one of our motor vehicle accident lawyers, we will liaise with all relevant people such as the insurer, other solicitors, other parties to the transport accident, witnesses of the transport accident, etc, so you are able to closely monitor and progress your claim in the most efficient and possible.
We can help you lodge a motor vehicle claim and explore all avenues to help you achieve the best outcome possible.
We can help in handling claims for all accidents and injury types.
By working with us:
- You’ll know if the CTP insurer has correctly assessed your entitlement
- You’ll be able to dispute the decision if you need to
- You’ll know what evidence you need and how to go about getting it
Whatever the challenge, you know we’ll seek the best possible result.
Time Limits in the ACT for a transport vehicle claim
Please note, in most cases strict time limits apply. It’s important to speak with us for independent legal advice at the earliest opportunity after your injury to make sure your interests and rights are protected.
Additional lump sum benefit
Many superannuation funds provide coverage for a disability insurance benefit, often referred to as a Total Permanent Disability (TPD) benefit. This insurance cover, if provided under your superannuation, is a benefit additional to the contributions that you and/or your employer have made to your superannuation fund during the period of your membership.
Whether you can make a claim for a superannuation disability benefit will depend on a number of factors - particularly, whether this insurance cover is provided under your superannuation.
