“So you’re saying I can get more out of my rego?”

November 1, 2016

“SO YOU’RE SAYING I CAN GET MORE OUT OF MY REGO?” NOBODY enjoys paying bills – and registration bills for the majority of vehicle owners usually ranks from ‘necessary expense’ at best to ‘absolute nightmare’ at worst. But did you know that there might be more than just the benefit of keeping your car on the road by paying your registration? Compulsory Third Party insurance (commonly abbreviated to CTP) is built into your registration fee, but surprisingly few vehicle owners understand the benefit of this insurance – or even what it represents. In Queensland, CTP provides an insurance policy that covers for personal injury caused by, through or in connection with the use of an insured motor vehicle. An injured third party has a right seek monetary compensation from the person ‘at fault’ for the personal injury and other related losses. This means that if you have been injured, you can apply for compensation relating to health expenses and economic losses that have occurred from the injury – providing you are not at fault. This proved to be the case for Jadon who had been caught up in a nasty prang driving home from work. As a result of the accident, Jadon required regular visits to the physiotherapist and time away from work. As he was not at fault and was eligible to claim for CTP insurance, all of his subsequent visits to the physiotherapist were covered by insurance. If something has happened to you or someone you know on the road within the last 3 years, contact us here at Brandon & Gullo Lawyers. Blayde or Ash will be happy to provide you with a free case evaluation to see if you are eligible to submit a CTP claim.
