Although Compensation Laws vary between states and territories in Australia, all states and territories require claims for personal injury compensation to be made within specified time periods.
These time periods will vary depending on the type of claim and your state/territory.
The time limitation period for commencing Court proceedings in motor vehicle, medical negligence and public liability claims is three years in most states.
For most Motor Vehicle injury cases, formal notice needs to be submitted to the relevant insurer within six months of the date of the accident.
It is important that claims are lodged as soon as possible, however, in certain circumstances, these time periods can be waived if sufficient documentation is provided. This does not apply for all cases and you should contact Stacks Goudkamp on 1800 25 1800 for more details.
