Why do I need a TAC claim lawyer?

The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) scheme is designed to pay for the treatment and support services of people injured a transport accident in Victoria. This includes people injured in car, motorbike, train, tram or bus accidents, as well as, cyclists and pedestrians.

If you have physical or mental health injuries as a result of a transport accident the scheme has an extensive array of benefits that can assist you throughout your life.

However, like any insurance scheme the TAC has their own legal and investigative departments who assess your case from a compensation perspective as soon as you lodge a claim. So it’s important for you to have an independent lawyer on your side from the beginning to advise you on your rights and act on your behalf to help you gain the full benefit of your entitlements.
