Motor Vehicle Accident

Drivers. Passengers. Pedestrians. Cyclists.

Since our beginnings in 1995, Hilton Lawyers has been helping South Australians in claiming their rights when they have been injured in a Motor Vehicle Accident.

After conducting thousands of successful claims, we have won significant sums for our clients to ensure their financial comfort in the short term and protection in the long term.

If you have been injured as a driver, passenger, on a motorcycle or as a pedestrian, you may have a right to make a significant claim. However, if you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident after 1 July 2013, your compensation claim for injuries will fall under a new Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme.

The changes of the laws relating to how insurers and the Courts treat compensation in motor vehicle accident claims have resulted in a significant reduction in entitlements for many people injured on South Australian roads.

The introduction of significant thresholds, and the use of the Injury Scale Values (ISV scale), is likely to result in injuries that most would view as moderate or serious (but not catastrophic) failing to meet the necessary threshold and accordingly limit or rule out entitlements to compensation. This is where it is important to seek legal advice, as entitlements will vary depending on individual circumstances.

Also remember that to bring a compensation claim, strict time limits also apply. Legal proceedings must be issued within three years of the date of the accident or all entitlements are lost.

Under the new laws, making a claim for compensation is now a much more complex process. But despite the law changes you still may have entitlements, so it is now more important than ever to talk to an experienced lawyer who can help you negotiate this process.

From the first meeting with you, will be able to explain to you the process involved in making a claim and whether your case can be conducted on a ‘no win no fee ’ basis, so that you will only have to pay legal costs if you receive a compensation payment.

It is important to obtain legal advice early. When we get to go-ahead from our clients, we start to process of:

  • Understanding the effect on you and your family’s life
  • Obtain funding for treatment for your speedy physical recovery
  • Collect all the necessary evidence, including expert report, statement and photographs to back up your claim
  • Collaborate with you to determine your optimal compensation bearing in mind your investment of time and resources of your action

Insurance & Superannuation

Claim the protection you are provided in work injury and loss

Most superannuation policies allow for monetary compensation for their members if they become sick, injured or, in the worst case, die. Often members do not realise that their superannuation scheme offers this cover.

Entitlements may include a lump sum payment or ongoing benefits, which could significantly ease financial difficulties for yourself or your family. In addition, you could also be entitled to claim continuing benefits or a lump sum amount from an insurance policy you may have independently purchased such as income protection, sickness or accident insurance. These claims can be made in addition to other compensation rights you may have.

Depending on the wording of your policy, you may be entitled to claim if:

  • You were working and your employer was paying compulsory superannuation and you suffer any injury or illness that has prevented you from working for 6 consecutive months;
  • You have entered into a private contract of insurance for income protection or disability insurance;
  • A person that you are dependent on (such as your partner or parent) dies and you wish to claim death benefits from the deceased’s superannuation fund or private insurer; and
  • You are under 60 or 65 years of age (depending on your policy)

It is important you seek your own legal advice at the earliest to ensure that you are aware of all your benefits and rights. We have helped hundreds to claim significant settlements from every large insurer in Australia. We offer specialist knowledge in superannuation and insurance claims so we can help you obtain a successful outcome with confidence.

Our lawyers can represent you during the assessment process to ensure that your claim is handled fairly and reasonably by the fund and the insurer. If you are already in dispute with a superannuation fund or insurer over an entitlement, we can help you challenge your fund’s decision by requesting reviews and, if necessary, by taking court action on your behalf.
