The majority of TAC claims are for injuries sustained as a result of a car accident.
You can lodge a claim for compensation if you sustained injuries either as the driver or passenger of a car involved in a road accident.
If you were injured by or whilst driving a motor vehicle which was unregistered at the time of the accident, you can still be covered by TAC as long as the vehicle was capable of being registered with VicRoads.
- Electric scooters and similar devices are unlikely to be capable of being registered for VicRoads purposes.
- A tractor on a farm hits into you and causes injury. As long as the tractor is capable of being registered, you will be entitled to TAC benefits.
If you are injured by a motor vehicle accident in a private driveway, you can also make a TAC claim. You may also be able to make a claim if the injury takes place on private land, for example a paddock, depending on the circumstances.
