If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident in Perth, you would have most likely thought about compensation. It is common that most individuals will ask the question: who will compensate me for damage to my motor vehicle? Although a simple question to ask, it is almost always a very difficult question to answer and will depend on various factors.
“Compensation” is a frequently used word in the motor vehicle accident context. It is ordinarily defined as something given in recognition of a loss.

Does my insurance policy adequately compensate me for damage to my motor vehicle?
Are all the other drivers involved in the motor vehicle accident and/or collision covered by an insurance policy of their own?
