There are different forms an injured third party should complete if they wish to seek compensation in relation to injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. Before you complete these forms, you should read our General Insurance Privacy Collection Statement:

You can claim these benefits even if you were the driver at fault.

It must be lodged with the CTP insurer of the at fault vehicle within six months of the date of the subject motor vehicle accident.
