Who can make a claim for damages under the motor accidents compensation act?

To make a claim under the Act you must have sustained an injury arising out of a MVA (Motor Vehicle Accident).

“Motor accident” means an accident involving the use or operation of a motor vehicle that causes death of or injury to a person and is caused (whether or not as a result of a defect in the vehicle) during:

  • The driving of the vehicle; or
  • A collision, or accident taken to avoid a collision, with a vehicle; or
  • A vehicle running out of control.

You also must be able to demonstrate “fault” of the owner and/or driver of a motor vehicle. In most cases the vehicle which caused the accident is considered to be “at fault”. You must be able to prove that your injuries were as a result of the fault of the owner or driver of the other motor vehicle.

Pedestrians can also claim where they are injured by the fault of the driver of a motor vehicle.


Beilby Poulden Costello Lawyers act on behalf of people suffering from whiplash as a result of motor vehicle accidents everyday.

There has been a lot of change in this area of motor vehicle accident claims over the years however monetary compensation still exists to assist people to put their lives back together after an accident.

Beilby Poulden Costello recently acted on behalf of a client who sustained whiplash type injuries to the neck and back as a result of a rear end motor vehicle accident. This is a very common injury and one where substantial compensation can still be obtained.

At the time of the whiplash injury, our client was employed as a personal assistant on a full time basis and also undertook an active roll in the care of her disabled son.


This case took over 14 days to hear. We argued on our client’s behalf that there was inadequate and misleading road signage on the Monaro Highway, near Bombala. 

At the time a new road was being built and our client was diverted down a dirt section of road which acted as detour.


We were recently successful in proceedings before the NSW Court of Appeal acting for the father of a young person who suffered a severe brain injury as a result of a motor vehicle accident.

Our client, the young boy’s father, had parked his car with a boat attached outside his home with the intention of opening the gate and backing it into the driveway. He asked his son to get out of the car to open the gate.
