Visit the SA CTP Insurance Regulator for more information on what compensation you may be eligible to receive.
Reductions to compensation apply if your actions contributed to the accident, such as failure to keep a proper lookout, or driving at excessive speed (contributory negligence).
There are also laws that apply which may result in statutory reductions. For example, if the effect of alcohol or drugs contributed to the accident, if required seatbelts or helmets weren’t in use, or if an injured passenger wasn’t sitting in a correct passenger compartment.
Head to the SA CTP Insurance Regulator to find out more information about contributory negligence and statutory reductions.
We may authorise payment for treatment expenses including, but not limited to the following:
- Medical practitioners
- Remedial massage
- Gym program
Generally, all providers of medical and allied health services (e.g. physiotherapy, chiropractic, hydrotherapy and massage treatment) must be WorkCover accredited, or your expenses may not be covered.
Because of this, we recommend you contact your health care provider to determine whether they’re WorkCover accredited before receiving treatment. Payment of accounts for these treatments will be made at WorkCover gazetted rates.
Payment of accounts by Allianz may occur when you’ve met the following requirements:
- We receive a completed and signed 'Injury Claim form', including the 'Prescribed Authority’ available from the SA CTP Insurance Regulator
- Liability is not in dispute or has been agreed
- A medical report confirms the need for treatment, where appropriate
- Treatment has been reasonably incurred as a result of the motor vehicle accident
- The amount of the account is appropriate
If there’s any doubt, payment will be subject to more investigations or inquiries.
You’ll be required to fully co-operate with us, which may include completing an Accident Report Form and returning it to us. Penalties of up to $5,000.00 can apply for failing to co-operate with us.
In some circumstances, the CTP compensation paid to the injured person may be recovered from you if, for example you:
- Were under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Were driving dangerously
- Intentionally cause injury
- Are guilty of a hit and run offence
- Drove a vehicle without the owner’s permission
- Don’t hold a current driver’s licence
- Drove an unroadworthy or overloaded vehicle
The money recovered from you may include injury compensation and claims' management costs.
If you are 16 years and over and you’re injured, you won’t be covered under your CTP policy. You may be entitled to compensation from another source. Visit the SA CTP Insurance Regulator for more information.
If you were under the age of 16 years at the time of the accident, and the accident occurred in South Australia on or after 1 July 2013, the CTP scheme provides necessary and reasonable treatment, care and support regardless of who is at fault. Find out more about children’s claims.
Please be wary of uninvited contact about potential motor vehicle accident claims, whether you have or haven’t been involved in an accident. They may offer to refer you to a claims, compensation, government or legal service – however, this contact may be deceptive or misleading about your eligibility to make a claim, or your eligibility for compensation. This is referred to as ‘claim farming’.
We recommend anyone receiving this sort of contact to protect their personal information.
No, but you do have the option to obtain it or to appoint legal representation.
Should you choose to seek legal representation, it’s important to know that thresholds are in place for reimbursement of legal fees. Legal costs through the CTP Scheme are not available in certain circumstances, such as if the total compensation is $25,000 or less. Limitations also apply if your compensation exceeds $25,000 and there will always be a component of any legal fees that won’t be claimable from Allianz.
Your lawyer is required to discuss with you the likely legal costs and also provide this information in writing.
