Compensation for damage to my motor vehicle involved in a motor vehicle accident

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.


Note: Generally in relation to claims for compensation by one driver involved in a motor vehicle accident from another driver, compensation is paid normally by way of a one-off payment of a sum of money.


Important considerations

Questions you should answer before considering any claim for compensation against another driver involved in a motor vehicle accident and/or collision in Perth:

  • Do I have a comprehensive private insurance policy for my motor vehicle?

  • 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?


Categories of compensation

A claim for compensation in the motor vehicle accident context can be categorised into the following:

  • Compensation for damage to your motor vehicle

  • Compensation for repairs to your motor vehicle

  • Compensation for other expenses incurred as a result of the motor vehicle accident

  • Compensation for harm suffered to you or your passenger(s) as a result of the motor vehicle accident

  • Compensation for not being able to go to work as a result of the motor vehicle accident
