A person who is injured in a car accident can claim payment for medical expenses, including ambulance costs, and loss of income.
Payments are limited to $5,000.00 if the injured person is the driver at fault. If you were not at fault, you might also be able to claim compensation for your injuries ('pain and suffering').
Claims are made to the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) (also called a 'green slip') insurance company of the driver at fault.
LawAssist cannot help you with claims about injuries resulting from car accidents. For more information, go to the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (previously the Motor Accidents Authority) website.
There are time limits for lodging a claim. The time limits may be 28 days or six months from the date of the accident. Which time limit applies depends on the type of claim you are making. For more information about time limits, go to the
