Car accident claims and other Transport Accident Claims (TAC)

If you are injured in a car accident in Victoria, or interstate in a Victorian registered vehicle, then you are probably entitled to compensation under the Transport Accident Act.

You can also claim compensation if injured by train, tram or by an opening car door if riding a bike.

Accident compensation benefits can include payment of your hospital, medical expenses and loss of earnings. If you have sustained a permanent injury or a serious injury you may be entitled to lump sum compensation.

Why is it important to get legal advice for your TAC Claim?
Strict time limits apply in relation to lodging your TAC claim and delay may mean you miss out on compensation.

Our experienced car accident claim lawyers, unlike the TAC, can provide independent advice to help maximise your TAC entitlements including lump sum compensation if eligible.
