Other Vehicle Accident Compensation

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are vulnerable road users because other than their helmet and protective clothing they are exposed to other vehicles. Many motor bike accidents occur because other road users just don’t see the motor bike. If you have been injured in a motorbike accident, it is therefore important that your lawyer understands the issues that confront motor bike riders and their pillion passengers.
Our specialist compensation lawyers at Stacks Goudkamp will advise you on your rights and help you make a claim for your injuries.

To read some examples of our successful motorcycle accident claims, read our case studies.

If you have suffered injuries in a motorcycle accident, either as the rider or a pillion passenger, you may be entitled to benefits and compensation. If the driver of a vehicle caused your accident, we will make a claim against their insurer. If the accident was caused by poor road conditions or poor road layout, we will advise you on that too.

Under the current NSW legislation, you may be entitled to benefits if you were at fault and may also be entitled to benefits and compensation if you were partly to blame for the accident. You can even receive benefits and recover compensation if nobody was at fault for your accident, for example if you swerved to avoid wildlife on the road.

We will explain your rights and deal with the insurer for you, taking away the stress of bringing a claim and helping you get back on your feet.

With our 40 years’ experience we have successfully represented countless motorcyclists and pillion passengers who have been injured in motorbike accidents with wide ranging physical and psychological injuries.

As well as assisting clients who have been injured in NSW, we have helped clients who have been injured in motor bike accidents across Australia and overseas.

Bus and Public Transport Accidents

If you were injured on a bus or some other form of public transport including while on or getting off a Ferry or on a Train (including a tram or light rail vehicle), we can help you make a claim for any losses caused by your injuries. Our expert personal injury lawyers will advise you of your rights, identify the responsible insurer, and lodge a claim on your behalf.

To read some examples of our successful bus, coach and public transport accident claims, read our case studies.

If you were a passenger on a bus or coach and were injured in an accident, it is highly likely that you will be entitled to benefits and compensation. The most common type of bus accident is where a passenger falls after the bus stops suddenly. Sometimes this may be before you have had the chance to sit down or you could be thrown out of your seat. It may be the bus driver’s fault or someone else’s fault. You may have a claim if you were a passenger on public transport, or in a private vehicle for example on a coach holiday, bus tour or airport transfer.

If you are a bus or coach driver who has been injured while driving your work vehicle, you may have rights to benefits and compensation under both the compulsory third-party motor accident scheme and the workers compensation scheme. It is a complex area of law and you need the right people looking after you. Our specialist personal injury lawyers will assess your claim and advise you of your rights. Where you have a choice of claims, our compensation experts will explain the benefits of your options and which scheme would be best for you.

Truck Accidents

Every year about 60 people are killed in truck accidents and 3,500 people are injured. Trucks are often the largest motor vehicles using the road and they can cause enormous damage because of their size and weight.

The team at Stacks Goudkamp will guide you through the complicated compensation process, using our expertise and experience to secure entitlements for you. We have a strong track record of successfully navigating difficult claims and this is driven by our commitment to delivering the best possible outcome for you.

Taxi and Uber Accidents

Recent statistics from the NSW Taxi Council suggests there are over 4,000 taxis in NSW making over 130 million trips a year. Uber and other ride share platforms are becoming more and more popular so it is not surprising that drivers and passengers in Taxis or Ubers can be injured in accidents.
If you were the driver of the Taxi or Uber then you may have rights under the motor accident scheme or the workers compensation scheme (or both) and you need a lawyer who can help you sort that out.
If you were the passenger of the Taxi or Uber then you need to make a claim against the CTP insurer of the at fault vehicle which may be the Taxi or Uber or some other vehicle. Our expert motor accident compensation lawyers can help you make the right clam against the right insurer.

I could write a book as to how the last 4 years would have been different if not for Tom and his team.
The support, assistance, advice from the first conversation till even after the settlement was second to none from the team at Stacks Goudkamp.
Four years on and after many downs, my children and I have our lives back.
We are unable to THANK YOU enough, but know that you have changed our lives for the better in so many ways since the accident.
