You may have been in a car accident, or a work accident, a slip trip or fall in a public place or you might have even suffered at the hand of a medical professional as many of our callers have.
Whatever type of accident you have had, there are steps that need to be followed for your health and in support of an Accident Compensation Claim.
Step 1: Gather all the details. Write down everything you remember as soon as you can after the accident as sometimes details can be forgotten
Step 2: Seek medical attention and follow the doctor’s orders
Step 3: Report the incident as soon as possible after the accident has occurred. This may be to your employer or to an insurance company. If you need help with this or to obtain the relevant forms such as an accident injury claim form contact the Australian Personal Injury Helpline.
Car accidents can be traumatic. Stop and think before you take action. And more importantly get the right advice. Not taking the right precautions or getting the right advice can leave you in an unfortunate position regarding compensation. In order to be fully compensated and get everything to which you are entitled to under the law.
If you have suffered an accident at work you need to report the incident to your boss. Employers have work compensation insurance to cover accidents and injuries at work. If an accident has left you with a permanent impairment and may have been ‘preventable’ then your employer may be negligent. When a claim for compensation is processed it is not your employer who pays the compensation but their motor accident compensation insurer i.e. Work Cover.
