Yes there are time limits. From the date of accident for most claims unless you were under 18 when the injury occurred, the time limit is 3 years. There are some exceptions however and as such we recommend seeking legal advice as soon as possible.
Compensation is paid by the CTP (compulsory third party) insurer of the driver at-fault in the accident. In those situations where the 'at-fault' party is unknown, such as a 'hit and run' a claim can be made against the government as a 'nominal defendant.'
Yes, as a passenger then you can claim, even if your driver or rider was at fault. Your claim will be made via the CTP (compulsory third party) insurer of the at-fault party. There are no financial or cost implications for the at-fault party. Everything is done by us with the CTP insurer.
