Motor Vehicle Accident Claims

Injured In An Accident On The Road And Made A Claim?

If you have been injured in a car, motorcycle or bicycle accident (whether as a pedestrian, driver or passenger) due to another person’s negligence, we can help you with your claim for compensation for your injuries and loss.

It is our job to take the stress of coping with your claim from you whilst you recover from your injuries, whether serious or minor. We will take care of all matters necessary to bring your claim to negotiation of a successful lump sum settlement.

Some examples of the things you might be able to claim include:

  • Past and Future Loss of Earnings
  • Medical and Hospital Expenses
  • Rehabilitation Expenses
  • Nursing Expenses and Home Assistance
  • Pain and Suffering
  • Loss of Enjoyment

We recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible after the accident so that our team can help you to achieve the maximum amount of compensation for your claim.

You will not be charged for the initial consultation if you do not wish to proceed.

Motor Vehicle Compensation

Depending on the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future loss of earnings, past and future medical expenses, loss of enjoyment of life, pain and suffering, gratuitous services and travel expenses.

Yes. We can take over your matter and represent you. We first meet with you to discuss your claim and the outcome you are seeking. We know the claim is important to you and that passing it on may be a difficult task.

This is why we should discuss with you the assistance you require and the services we can provide before representing you. That way we know you have made an informed decision either way.

We can of course assist you with settlement of your claim and we understand that money cannot change what you have been through.

We will fight to achieve the maximum award of compensation for you.

You will not have to pay any legal costs while the claim is running and all of your legal costs will be paid at the conclusion of the claim when you receive your lump sum payment.

We will pay for all medical report fees and any other disbursements which need to be paid while the claim is running.

At the conclusion of the claim the Insurance Commission (in addition to paying a lump sum payment to finalise the claim) will make a reasonable contribution towards payment of your legal costs, however they are not required to pay for all of your legal costs and there is always a “gap fee” that is payable by the client.

The “gap fee” which you will pay in your case when it is settled will not exceed 10% of any final lump sum payment

Depending on the extent of your injuries, it is possible to make a claim. Many people assume that whiplash is not a serious injury. However, if left untreated, it may lead to long term debilitating consequences. People are inclined to write off their injuries, particularly whiplash. Regardless of the kind of injury sustained, it is in the best interests of your health to seek medical attention as soon as possible

At Dwyer Durack we don’t only take on complicated matters concerning serious injuries. We may be able to offer legal assistance to you irrespective of the type or extent of the injuries sustained and advise you on your position with the Insurance Commission of Western Australia and fight to achieve the maximum award of compensation for you.

If you live outside of the metropolitan area we can still assist you. You don’t need to personally attend our offices for the first consultation and we can arrange for home visits or teleconferences to suit your needs.
