Physical, psychological, and financial challenges happen all too often following these kinds of accidents.

The following are more common injuries as a result of a serious car accident:


This is not a complete list, and there are many other injuries or variations of injuries that may be covered in a car accident compensation claim.

How often do serious car accidents happen?

Unfortunately, serious car accidents happen every day. Even if you are a safe and experienced driver, sharing the road with other people puts you at risk.

While there have been a lot of improvements to our roads, vehicle safety, and driver education programs, serious accidents still happen.

An impact that “writes off” your vehicle or has left you with an injury or damage that takes extensive time to recover from is covered under the law.

The statistics around car accidents are quite alarming. The most recent data indicates there have been 1127 road deaths in the last 12 months. This number is lower than previous years, however, it shows that despite attempts to make our roads safer, accidents still happen.

For accidents that do not result in death, there are still a large number of people who require hospitalisation for their injuries. Roughly 40,000 people have needed medical treatment after being in a car accident.

This of course is just a snapshot of the data. For a more in-depth look at the statistics for car accidents, we recommend reading this report.

How much compensation will I get with my car accident claim?

Lyons Compensation Lawyers

Many different factors need to be considered when it comes to deciding how much your claim is worth.

Compensation is not there to make you rich. The goal is to replace what you have lost, and cover what you may lose.

The following list shows the main items that are calculated to help you recover:

You may be eligible for some or all of these amounts. It is best to seek legal advice from Lyons Compensation Lawyers to better understand what your claim is worth.

There are two categories that lump sum compensation falls into. General damages and special damages.

General damages compensate you for pain and suffering and are calculated on a sliding scale. The amount you may be awarded depends on the severity of your injury. Payments can range from $10,000 for mildly serious injuries to roughly $150,000 if you suffer a serious debilitating injury.

Special damages, cover your medical and rehabilitation costs. Depending on your situation there may need to be repayments made to places such as Medicare, Workcover, Comcare, or private health funds. The calculation for special damages is based solely on the money that has been paid to treat your injury.
