Cyclist CTP Claim
Cyclist CTP Claim
Cyclists are at a higher risk of injury than other road users. Injuries can range from minor cuts and bruises to more serious injuries such as broken bones, head injuries and spinal cord injuries.
Physiotherapy is an important part of the recovery process for cyclists who have been injured in an accident. It can help to reduce pain, improve mobility and strength, and prevent further injury.
If you have been injured in a cycling accident that was caused due to a motor vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation through a CTP claim.
CTP insurance is compulsory for all registered vehicles in Australia and provides cover for personal injury claims arising from motor vehicle accidents.
It’s crucial for an injured cyclist to lodge a CTP claim as soon as possible. To support your claim, it always best to have details of the motor vehicle that caused the accident.
If you were unable to get hold of the motor vehicle which caused the accident, you may still be able to lodge a CTP claim. You will need to provide evidence and details of the your injuries, medical treatment received and receipts for medical expenses.
This can be done by firstly visiting your GP and have your injuries assessed. Ask your GP for a medical certificate stating your injuries arising from the cycle vs motor vehicle accident. Visit your Physiotherapist to have your injuries assessed and treated. And you also need to lodge a report with NSW Police who will issue you with an event number.
