In New South Wales, we have a system called Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance for all vehicles. The aim of CTP insurance is to provide you with compensation if you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, so that you can seek the medical treatment required for your recovery and help cover your lost wages if you can’t work.

This is different from making a claim with your insurance for the damage to your vehicle after an accident.

Slater and Gordon’s dedicated CTP claims lawyers have extensive experience taking care of CTP compensation claims. If you’ve been injured in a road accident, get in touch with our team now on 1800 444 141.

No Win - No Fee*

We are the original No Win, No Fee* lawyers. This means that if you don’t win you don’t pay the fees for the work we do on your case.
