Physiotherapy for Car Accident Injury Claims

If you’ve been injured in a car accident, life can get extremely stressful and challenging. Not only do you have to deal with getting your car fixed or replaced, having a car accident can cause a lot of financial stress. A lot of drivers in NSW are unaware, CTP insurance is able to cover some of these costs, including lost wages, support at home while you are recovering and treatment costs. Motor vehicle accident compensation in NSW is available to all injured drivers, passengers and pedestrians through the CTP insurance scheme regardless of who was at fault and caused the accident.

Can I claim compensation for a car accident?

If you’ve been injured in any motor vehicle accident in NSW you can apply for “personal injury benefits” under the NSW CTP scheme. This includes:

  • Drivers and passengers
  • Motor bike riders and passengers
  • Pedestrians
  • Cyclists

If you are charged with a serious driving offence in connection with the accident, or if you were the at-fault driver of an uninsured vehicle, then you are not entitled to motor vehicle accident compensation in NSW.

Minor and Non-minor Injuries

  • Minor: Often includes soft tissue injuries such as any muscle injury, sore back, whiplash
  • Non-minor Injury: These include fractures, organ damage, nerve damage, heat and brain injuries, conditions requiring surgery

Support available after a motor vehicle accident

  • Minor: Income support, medical, Physiotherapy and home care expenses for up to 6 months
  • Non-minor Injury: Income support, medical and home care expenses that can extend beyond 6 months

Steps you need to take after the accident to lodge your claim:

1.     You need to call the Police and report the accident immediately. You should obtain a Police event number.

2.     You should go to the hospital or your general practitioner (GP) and obtain treatment for any injuries you have sustained. Make sure your GP or the hospital records how your accident occurred and records all the injuries you have sustained, even those injuries that might seem minor at the time. If you went to the hospital first, you may need to consult your GP who will provide you with an “Accident Notification Form” or a medical certificate. You will need this form to lodge your CTP claim.

3. If because of the car accident you need time off work or payment for medical treatment, you need to submit an Application for Personal Injury Benefits form.

4. You will need certain details before you can lodge your CTP Claim:

  • The details of the vehicle that hit you (to identify the CTP insurer)
  • Police event number
  • Medical certificate from your GP (Filled by your GP)
  • Personal injury benefits form (Filled by you)

5. It is best to submit your claim as soon as possible. To receive lost wages, you must submit your claim within 28 days of the accident.

7. Once your claim has been accepted, the insurer will issue you with a claim number. You can provide this claim number to a Physiotherapist who will assist you with your injury and provide rehabilitation services.

Common Car Accident Injuries

If you have ever been involved in a car accident of any kind, minor or major, you know firsthand how much of a shock to the system it can be.
Regardless of if you sustained any injuries, you are often left thinking about the accident over and over again.
What if I did this, what if I did that..

If you are ever in an accident on the road, regardless if it was a major or minor, it is important for you to reach out to your GP for a check up. We are often left with pains in different parts of the body which we do not realise have been caused due to the moto vehicle accident.

Most importantly, any medical treatment and rehabilitation costs are covered by the car at fault’s CTP insurance.

Common types of injuries that can occur in a car accident

Whiplash

Whiplash is the most common injury from any accident and can happen in minor or serious accidents.
Whiplash often occurs in rear-end collisions where the impact is unexpected.
When another vehicle hits you, your head suddenly and unexpectedly moves backward from the force of the impact.
The sudden forwards and backwards movement causes strain on the muscles and tendons of the upper back and neck.
You may experience neck pain, blurred vision, tingling, headache, or generalised pain in your back or neck area after an accident.

Case Study: Fractures

Not all fractures are as obvious as you think.
We recently looked after a patient who was T-boned while driving his car and was hit by a car who failed to stop at a red light.
This patient saw his GP and reported general neck pain and discomfort in other parts of the body.
Rest and pain killers were prescribed to ease the symptoms as the patient presented with no major symptoms.
A precautionary x-ray was also done.
The x-ray results revealed multiple (stable) Cervical fractures
The patient was immediately rushed to a hospital where he was seen by a Neuro specialist
As the fractures were stable, a neck brace was given go further protect the area.
And there you have it. The importance of seeing a GP as soon as possible after a motor vehicle accident.

Other Neck Injuries

While whiplash is probably the most common neck area injury, there are other problems that can occur after a blunt-force impact. If you notice tensing or discomfort in the muscles around your neck in the days following your crash (muscle spasm), it is important to have a doctor examine you immediately. The force of an accident can affect the underlying bone structure without there necessarily being a fracture. X-rays, CT and MRI scans are often used by medical experts to diagnose such injuries.

Back & Spine Injuries

More work days are lost through spinal injuries than just about any other type of injury and car accidents account for as many as half of them each year. They can cause long-term problems with breathing, mobility, and overall health, so get checked out if you suspect that you may have any spine or back-related injuries from your car crash. Early treatment ensures the best prospect of recovery.

Herniated Disk

This is an aspect of a spinal injury. The spine has 24 “discs” that work to absorb shock and provide a cushion between the vertebrae. An accident can cause these discs to shift or bulge outward, which can cause severe pain and lead to serious complications

Lodging a CTP Claim:

Eligibility:

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident (pedestrians, cyclists, cars, motor bikes and trucks involved in an accident with another motor vehicle) and are experiencing symptoms, you are eligible to lodge a CTP claim.

What will CTP insurance cover?

  • Any reasonable medical and rehabilitation costs
  • The CTP insurer will generally cover most, if not all medical expenses associated with the incident.
  • With that said, prior approval is necessary for most services, including Physiotherapy.
  • Items can only be claimed in this way if they are recommended by your health professional.
  • The CTP insurer, in order to have them covered, and have no out-of-pocket expense, must pre approve any scans or other treatment received.

How to lodge a CTP claim:

  • Report incident to Police – Ask for an event number
  • Visit your GP – Ask for a “Certificate of Fitness”
    • This is a form your GP will fill out which will outline your injury details
  • Lodge the documents with your CTP Insurer

What can we offer you:

  • We provide a specialized treatment service for CTP insurance claims
  • Not only do we provide you with treatment, but we will also guide you every step of the way
  • We will also refer you on to other health professionals and specialists
