If you or someone you care about is injured in a motorcycle accident, life can be turned upside down. The ability to focus on your recovery can be difficult when you are faced with trauma and financial uncertainty.
We are here to assist you with personal injury claims during this challenging time by obtaining compensation from the Transport Accident Commission (TAC). The TAC will pay compensation to road users who are injured while travelling as a motorcyclist. The TAC also pays compensation if someone dies as a result of a road accident.
The amount you receive will depend on the extent of your injuries and what happened in the accident.
Contact the TAC by phone to make a claim for any injuries you have sustained. You will need details of the accident, vehicles and people involved, any witnesses or police, medical treatment and employment.
You can book a free appointment with one of our TAC lawyers to get expert advice on what your entitlements are.
Gordon Legal personal injury lawyers are here to ensure you get a fair settlement. If you have suffered an injury as a result of an accident, the TAC can cover a range of entitlements including medical and like expenses, loss of income (loss of earning payments) and possible lump sum claims, namely impairment benefit and possibly a claim in negligence if the other driver(s) were at fault for the accident
Your compensation may vary depending on how bad your injuries are, your age, how much care is required, how much you have paid out of pocket and how much you have lost or will lose in wages.
If you have been injured while riding a motorcycle, either as the driver or passenger, you are entitled to certain benefits from the TAC regardless of who is at fault. These benefits may include medical expenses, loss of income payments and lump sum benefits if your accident-related injuries caused permanent impairment.
At Gordon Legal, we understand that TAC claims are a personal issue.
