If you are injured in a motor vehicle accident in Tasmania there are two things you need to do:
- You need to apply for scheduled benefits through the Motor Accidents Insurance Board (‘MAIB’). Scheduled benefits are payments that the MAIB will make to cover a number of things, including 80% of your wage loss, your out of pocket expenses, personal and home care, and occasionally travel expenses. Your GP or hospital staff will normally assist you with this.
- If the accident occurred in Tasmania and you were not at fault for the accident, you will be entitled to make a claim. A lawyer can help you with that claim.
