When you’ve been injured, lodging claims and paperwork only makes things worse. At Carbone Lawyers, we manage the whole process so you can just focus on your recovery.

No Win, No Fee

Our no win, no fee policy means that most personal injury claims have no upfront fees.

When you have been injured it can have a significant impact on your life – the out-of-pocket expenses, loss of income, not to mention the pain and suffering caused by your injury. Add trying to get compensation for your injury and this just makes an already challenging situation even more difficult. Below is how engaging a road accident lawyer can make life much easier for you in terms of getting the compensation you are entitled to along with recommendations on what to do and what not to do in the event of a road accident and examples of when you may be entitled to make a claim. 

Why Engage A Road Accident Lawyer? 

Road accident lawyers not only help to take some of the pressure off, but they will also ensure your claim includes all compensation you are entitled to and help to build a strong case for achieving a successful outcome. 

Our road accident lawyers have an in-depth knowledge of the laws relating to personal injuries and the different types of compensation there are. They can provide guidance on how best to proceed, give you information on what evidence is needed and have a thorough understanding of Court processes. They can negotiate on your behalf if required and also advise you on how to appeal if you are unhappy with the outcome of your claim. We are here to help minimise your stress and maximise your compensation. 

When A Road Accident Lawyer May Be Able To Help 

A road accident is likely claimable in any circumstance where a motor vehicle or public transport is involved. Even if you were walking or riding your bike, if a registered motor vehicle is involved and you were injured, you may be eligible for compensation. 

Examples of situations where you may be able to claim compensation and a road accident lawyer can assist you include: 

  • Incidents directly caused by a motor vehicle
  • Out-of-control motor vehicles, trains or trams
  • Collisions between cyclists and parked cars, as well as opened car doors
  • Pedestrians injured while crossing a road
  • Passengers injured on or by a train, bus or tram

What To Do After A Road Accident

Here is what our road accident lawyers recommend you do after a road accident: 

  • Take the other driver’s name and address
  • Take the other vehicle’s registration details (take a photo of the licence plate if possible)
  • Take witnesses’ names and contact numbers
  • Take photos of all damages
  • Give a detailed account to the police if they attend the scene. If the police do not attend the scene, file a report with the police ASAP (if a person has been injured and/or there is damage to property ensure you call the Police) 
  • Visit your doctor and explain what occurred in as much detail as possible, including all of your injuries and symptoms
  • Lodge a claim with the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) or contact Carbone Lawyers and we can assist you through the process, start to finish. 

 

In terms of what NOT to do, you mustn’t concede blame if the accident was not your fault. By admitting fault, you can disadvantage your claim and interfere with the course of professional investigation.
