Motor vehicle accidents

Ward Keller can help people who have been involved in a motor vehicle accident.

All NT motor vehicle accident claims are first processed through the government’s Motor Vehicle Accident Compensation Scheme. This is administered by the Territory Insurance Office (TIO) and covers everyone injured or killed in a motor vehicle accident in the Territory.

We generally come in when clients have been through that first process and their claim isn’t accepted or there’s a dispute about an entitlement.

Ward Keller’s litigation team assists these clients to make a claim for benefits to the Motor Accidents Compensation Tribunal.

We also handle motor vehicle accident proceedings in the both the Local and Supreme courts.

If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, or your property has been damaged or someone close to you has died, Ward Keller can give you specific advice about your case.

Costs arrangements

Ward Keller also offers costs arrangements on some matters, such as pay-as-you-go and ‘no win, no fee’ arrangements.

We understand the effect of legal costs on our clients’ verdicts, and so we take time to help clients understand how legal costs are calculated and whether there is likely to be a significant benefit as a result of using our services.
