The role of a vehicle injury lawyer

Accident injury compensation (CTP Green Slip claim) can be obtained through the engagement of a vehicle injury lawyer.   A vehicle injury lawyer will;

•    Fight to get the maximum compensation you are legally entitled to
•    Claim for past, present and future economic losses because of a road accident
•    Fight for a lump sum to compensate you for your pain and suffering
•    Prepare your claim gathering the necessary reports and schedule of losses
•    Negotiate and aim to settle out of Court a fair accident injury compensation award

An injury compensation helpline offer free services which include;

•    Free information
•    Free forms
•    Free case review
•    Information on what to do when you have been involved in a road accident
•    Arranging free legal advice with a no win no fee vehicle injury lawyer

You don’t have to deal with the aftermath of an accident alone. A vehicle injury lawyer will support you when you need it most. With a vehicle injury lawyer you are more likely to get a fair injury compensation payout.

Insurance companies are not big fans of paying out insurance claims following a road accident and might offer a minimal amount of injury compensation. It can sometimes be difficult to deal with an insurance company when discussing a payout.

An insurance company does not have to give you everything you are entitled to. In fact unless you ask the legal questions of a lawyer you may not be aware of your legal entitlements.

With a vehicle injury lawyer on your side you may be offered a much better lump sum payment that you would otherwise be offered. To make sure you do all the right things and to find out if you need an injury compensation lawyer to negotiate a CTP Green Slip compensation claim. Call 1300 430 834 today!

Car crash victims are quite often unaware of their entitlements to accident injury compensation. Dealing directly with an insurer means they will most likely offer you the lowest possible payout. So the question is “What can you do?” to make sure you get everything to which you are entitled to under the laws in the State or Territory in which the motor vehicle accident occurred.

Well the first thing to do is to follow all the correct procedures and this includes speaking to the right people which may include a specialist solicitor. Here is a step by step process to follow when you have been involved in a car accident.

Documenting all medical treatment is required, even to the extent of keeping a daily dairy of how you feel, what treatment you had that day, and where you had the treatment. When it comes to accident injury compensation claims the more information to support your claim the better. Documenting all your medical examinations is necessary to support your insurance claim.
