What you need to know before you lodge your application for personal injury benefits.

This is the article you need to read before you lodge your claim!

Before you lodge your application for personal injury benefits, take a few minutes to understand what you might be entitled to and how your application will be assessed. Then you can follow our step-by-step guide to lodging your application for an explanation of what to do next.

75% of injured motorists risk missing out on benefits or lump sums they don’t know about.* Don’t be one of them!

Your benefits.

Your benefits will be based on your medical assessment and whether your injuries are classified as minor or non-minor.  This is the most critical part of your application and you should pay careful attention to this part of the form.

If your injury is classified as minor you won’t be entitled to claim a lump sum for future loss of wages or pain and suffering, and your benefits will be cut off after a maximum of six months, even if you haven’t fully recovered.

Your medical evidence.

If you need to see a psychologist or psychiatrist, then you should immediately request a referral from your GP and request approval for this treatment from the insurer.  To prove that your psychological or psychiatric injury is non-minor you’ll need to show that you’ve had the symptoms for some time.

To make sure nothing’s missed when the doctor assesses your injuries, you should read our article on how to get a full head to toe assessment and download our head to toe self-assessment checklist.
