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.
