All we want for Christmas is you!

All we want for Christmas is you!

Until Saturday 20 December, the north east area of Victoria Square will be MAC’s Christmas gift garden where you are encouraged to write the name of a loved one who you want to keep safe on the roads onto a ‘present’ that is then placed under the MAC Christmas trees.

By taking part in the Christmas gift garden, you can get behind MAC’s road safety message and tell family and friends how important they are.

Please remind them not to drink drive, to be patient on the road, ensure they have plenty of rest if they’re driving long distances, and stick to the speed limits. Read Christmas regional driving tips here and see our handy information on standard drinks.

MAC wishes you a safe and happy festive season.

Involved in a Crash

Making a claim

Involved in a Crash

Making a claim

You will need to comply with the legal claim notification requirements and complete an Approved Injury Claim Form, including a Prescribed Authority, provided by Allianz. The Injury Claim Form will require specific crash information and is designed to assist Allianz in making an early decision on your access to treatment.

Where Allianz obtains information using the Prescribed Authority, a copy of that information will be provided to you.

Once you have returned the completed Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority to Allianz, a claims consultant will contact you to discuss your claim.

MAC is committed to supporting early access to reasonable and necessary treatment to optimise your recovery from your injury, and providing a properly completed Approved Injury Claim Form and Prescribed Authority will assist MAC to achieve this goal.

How to make a claim

Step 1: Complete the Injury Claim Form including the Prescribed Authority using any of the following methods:

  • Print an Injury Claim Form
  • Complete the Injury Claim Form online
  • Call Allianz SA CTP on 1300 137 331; or visit Allianz at 89 Pirie Street Adelaide 5000 to obtain an Approved Injury Claim Form

Step 2: Sign and lodge your claim

  • Sign the completed Injury Claim Form including the Prescribed Authority
  • Send the completed Injury Claim Form including the Prescribed Authortity back to Allianz by mail to Allianz Australia SA CTP, GPO Box 2198, Adelaide SA 5001; fax to 1300 137 431; or deliver to the Allianz CTP reception desk at 89 Pirie Street, Adelaide 5000

Step 3: A claims consultant will then contact you to discuss your claim

Making a Fatality Claim

Contact Allianz SA CTP on 1300 137 331, or visit them at 89 Pirie Street Adelaide 5000 to discuss the process to make a fatality claim. The Fatality Claim Form can also be downloaded here.

Things you should know

If you have been injured in a crash and are eligible to make a CTP claim, your claim may be reduced if you:

  • Were not wearing a seatbelt
  • Were not wearing a helmet while riding a motorbike, scooter or bicycle
  • Were riding in the back of a van or ute
  • Were deemed to have contributed to the crash
  • Your driver had consumed alcohol or drugs

Instances also exist where you will not be entitled to make a claim (e.g. if the injury was caused as a result of your own negligence, hoon activity or illegal activity).

* Excluding children under 16 at the time of crash if the crash occurred in SA.

MRASA annual Toy Run 2014

MRASA annual Toy Run 2014

The aim of the Toy Run is to raise awareness and celebrate motorcycling, with a strong focus on assisting under-privileged children during the festive season. During the event, MAC promotes safe motorcycling behaviour, particularly wearing the right clothing while riding.

Motorcyclists have a higher risk of death or serious injury than all other road users. In South Australia, motorcyclists on average account for just above 3% of all registered vehicles but around 15% of all fatalities (2009-2013).

“Motorcyclists are more vulnerable on our roads because they more exposed, so wearing the right gear can be the difference between a nasty fall and injuries that prevent you from riding again,” MAC General Manager Road Safety Michael Cornish said.

“MAC urges motorcyclists to do everything they can to help ensure they can be more easily seen by others. This means wearing bright, reflective clothing including your helmet.

“When other road users around you are focused elsewhere on busy roads, you can take some positive steps towards boosting your visibility.”

The State Government recently announced the installation of motorcycle barriers beneath existing guard rails on 14 South Australian roads with the help of a $1.4 million investment from MAC’s Road Safety Infrastructure Fund. These barriers are designed to absorb the impact and reduce the nature of injuries in the event of a crash.

The Toy Run is on Sunday 14 December, departing from Victoria Park in Adelaide at 11am and proceeding to Callington Oval via Hutt St, Glen Osmond Road and the South Eastern Freeway. For more information, visit the MRASA website mrasa.asn.au/toyrun.shtml

What is CTP?

Find out about the recent changes to CTP

CTP Insurance is the most important insurance you can have and that's why it's mandatory in South Australia - heavy penalties apply if a vehicle is driven or found on a road without CTP. Once a vehicle is registered, part of the fee goes towards CTP, so you're automatically covered without having to do anything except pay your registration.

At the very least your car, or the car your child is driving, must be registered and automatically covered for CTP.

CTP Insurance provides compensation for personal injury to people injured in road crashes where the driver or owner of a South Australian registered vehicle is at fault. It may also cover crash victims where a passenger is at fault.

By paying your CTP premium you are protecting yourself from potentially being sued for damages if you cause injury to third parties.

Compensation payments are funded by CTP insurance premiums paid by all SA motorists as part of their vehicle registration.

South Australia's CTP insurance scheme includes reasonable treatment and other expenses.

The scheme does not:

  • Provide full compensation to persons who contribute to their injuries. For example, by not wearing a seatbelt.
  • Compensate the injured driver who is entirely at fault.
  • Cover damage to vehicles.

MAC's Claims Manager, Allianz Australia Limited, is responsible for processing all CTP claims and handling enquiries.

An injured person (or their relatives) should contact Allianz as soon as possible following a crash. Allianz can provide advice about whether the injured person is eligible to make a CTP claim.

MAC Rescue Helicopter

MAC Rescue is South Australia's rescue helicopter service and conducts more than 1,000 missions across the state each year.

MAC Rescue comprises three helicopters and is used by the health and emergency service organisations to undertake medical retrieval, policing, bushfire management and search and rescue tasks.

MAC Rescue covers all areas of South Australia.

MAC took over the sponsorship of the State Rescue Helicopter Service in July 2009, further strengthening its commitment to reducing the number and impact of road injuries and deaths from motor vehicle crashes.

Who uses MAC Rescue?

A number of State Government organisations use MAC Rescue:

  • SA Health (MedSTAR Emergency Medical Retrieval Service) and SA Ambulance Service use the service to transport critically injured and ill patients from regional South Australia to major hospitals.
  • The SA Country Fire Service uses the service to assist fire-fighting operations in the country areas of South Australia.
  • SA Police use the service for crime prevention activities, search and rescue operations and also in the pursuit of motor vehicles and suspects.

Why is MAC Rescue so important to road safety?

Despite under a third of the State's population living in rural areas, more than half the casualties of road crashes occur on rural roads. Over 7,000 rural residents have been seriously injured or killed this past decade. In the same period, MAC has paid over $400 million for injuries arising from rural road crashes.

MAC Rescue is a critical part of rural road safety due to the emergency response services it can provide. On average, the helicopters respond to at least one medical trauma every two days, with the majority of these relating to road crash injuries. Furthermore, the helicopters physically attend about 12 serious crashes on country roads each month.
