Making a Car Accident Injury Claim

In Western Australia, there are several steps to claiming as a victim of a vehicle accident. The first step is to file a police report through the WA Online Crash Reporting Portal.

The next step is to get a medical assessment from your usual General Practitioner. If you were hospitalised after the accident, seeing a GP for a follow-up assessment and treatment is still essential. This step is crucial not only for your claim but also for your health and wellbeing – as many car accident injuries such as whiplash are not outwardly visible, and you may not know that you are injured. 

Psychological trauma following a car accident is also a form of injury, and victims may experience anxiety, depression, or PTSD symptoms. Seeing a medical practitioner as soon as possible means your treatment can begin without delay, improving your chances of recovery.

When it comes to filing your traffic accident claims, time is of the essence. The length of the process for your claim will depend on several factors, such as which party was at fault and whether your injuries are minor or severe, meaning it is best to file promptly and understand the benefit periods available under your personal accident insurance policy.

However, submitting your claim is easier said than done. Pain, trauma, or personal circumstances might mean you are struggling with the road injury claims process and are not alone. Seeking legal assistance is the best action you can take to make your life easier. Here at CLP Legal, we specialise in helping victims who have been injured in a vehicle accident and in claiming compensation for injury or sickness.

Help with Delayed Pain Years After Car Accident

What happens if you experience delayed pain or injury?

Due to stress, adrenalin, and shock, many vehicle accident victims experience a gap between the time of their accident and the first onset of injury pain. It can sometimes take hours or days to realise you are already an injured person.

The delay between the time of the accident and the onset of symptoms can sometimes result in victims not realising that a vehicle accident injury is causing their pain. Back pain and neck pain, for example, may be dismissed as general soreness by victims even when they are symptoms of a serious injury such as whiplash, soft tissue damage, or spinal disc injury. It is not uncommon for victims to be diagnosed months or years after a road accident. Fortunately, it is still possible to lodge a claim for medical expenses and suffering.

How long do you have to make a motor vehicle claim?

If you have experienced delayed onset of pain or a late-stage injury diagnosis after a car accident, CLP Legal can help you. Making a claim months or years after an accident is often complicated; there are time limits, specific conditions, and correct evidence to be collected. We recommend seeking legal advice as soon as possible if you intend to make a claim.

The CLP Legal team are experts in navigating claims for harm suffered due to a vehicle accident in Western Australia, and we can make your delayed road injury claims easier, less stressful, and more likely to succeed. We encourage you to contact our friendly team to discuss your situation, know our legal fees and organise a claims consultation. 

Car Accident Settlement Amounts and Compensation

The compensation and benefits available to people who happen to have car accident injury differ from state to state across Australia. Injured person or victims are entitled to compensation for loss of earnings, ongoing medical treatment, pain and suffering, and future medical procedures through the Western Australia ICWA.

For those who have suffered catastrophic injuries following a vehicle accident, lifetime financial support is available for medical costs, support services, and loss of income that may run into the millions over the course of your life. 

If you want a peace of mind and better idea of the exact compensation you deserve, contact CLP Legal for a breakdown of the benefits you are entitled to based on your circumstances.

Legal Assistance for a Whiplash Injury

Whiplash is a type of neck or back injury caused by the sudden movement of the spine, which can injure the neck and back muscles and ligaments. Symptoms may include pain, stiffness, headaches, and dizziness. If you experience these symptoms after a car accident, it is crucial to seek medical assistance immediately. 

 In some cases, whiplash can lead to more severe and long-term health problems such as chronic pain or disability, which require ongoing treatment. Damage from whiplash can be life-altering and may lead to loss of income, reduced enjoyment of life, symptoms of depression, and the development of PTSD. Fortunately, in WA, you can claim benefits and compensation for whiplash-related injuries.

 CLP Legal can help you make a whiplash-related injury claim. With information about the accident and your medical history, we can determine the exact benefits you are entitled to. We will manage your claim to ensure you get the total compensation you deserve.
