Car Accident Compensation - Are you entitled to a claim?
By GC Law01 Jul 2013
At GC Law we specialise in injury compensation claims including those caused by car accidents.
It is important to point out, that if you or a member of your family has been involved in a car or road accident, either as a driver or a passenger, you could be entitled to claim significant compensation.
In many car accident cases, passengers including children are badly injured.
Passengers as well as drivers are entitled to make a claim for compensation, regardless of whether they are related to the driver or not.
There are very strict time limits under the law, when making compensation claims. So if you have been involved in an accident, don’t wait too long before contacting a solicitor, they will help you confirm that you have a case and that you are entitled to claim compensation.
PEDESTRIANS CAN CLAIM COMPENSATION
If you have suffered injury as a pedestrian, then you may be entitled to make a personal injury compensation claim for the accident. If you have been involved in a pedestrian accident, then it is important that you seek the appropriate legal advice from a solicitor that has expertise in the area of pedestrian accident claims.
In Australia, many pedestrians are killed or injured each year. Commonly a pedestrian accident involves people being struck by a vehicle whilst on a crossing, or when a vehicle mounts a pavement or footpath. All motorists must give way to pedestrians.
Pedestrians are extremely vulnerable and can suffer very serious injuries. However making a pedestrian accident claim against the driver can be difficult. You will probably not have been in a position to gather vehicle details or witness statements at the scene and the driver may assert that you were in some way responsible for the accident.
Whatever the circumstances, we can help you receive the appropriate advice that you need in order to successfully pursue your pedestrian accident claim. Even if the vehicle that hit you cannot be traced or is uninsured – you may still make a pedestrian accident claim.
