Making a claim

Allianz Australia Limited is the Motor Accident Commission's CTP claims manager. If you are injured in a motor vehicle crash, were not at fault* and wish to make a CTP claim, contact Allianz by phoning 1300 137 331.

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.

2016 Safe Cycling Awards

2016 Safe Cycling Awards

The Safe Cycling Awards will provide an opportunity to recognise excellence by South Australian local government.

Award criteria is based on initiatives that actively encourage safe cycling behaviours, where infrastructure improvements have enhanced cycling safety, and where councils have displayed active support for community cycling groups or programs which has led to safer cycling outcomes.

Along with the award and state-wide recognition for being a cycle safe city, winners of each category will receive a grant from the Motor Accident Commission of $2,000.

Councils will be divided into three categories based on location, size and capabilities:

  •  Metropolitan councils
  • Regional councils with a population under 10,000 residents
  • Regional councils with a population over 10,000 residents

Safer cycling elements are those that support safe cycling culture and education as well as providing environments that community members are confident to cycle in.

Contributions to safe cycling by councils in one or more of the following three areas will be considered in the judging process:

Physical – infrastructure that supports cycling and use of cycling equipment;

Cultural – behavioural change and awareness of cycling and safety; and,

Community – the support of community groups and events connected with cycling.

 

Applications open Monday 2 May 2016 and close Friday 2 September 2016.

Awards will be presented at the Local Government Association’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) October 20-21 2016, giving winning councils the opportunity to share their initiatives and accept their award.
