Been in a Crash?
If you have been in a crash, it is important that you report it to Police within 24 hours. If your car is damaged, contact your car insurance company.
If you have any pain, discomfort or injuries you should seek medical advice. If the crash was not your fault or you are a child under the age of 16, you may be entitled to make a Compulsory Third Party (CTP) Insurance claim for personal injury compensation. This can be done through contacting SA’s CTP claims manager, Allianz.
You can report certain crashes online instead of reporting the collision at a police station. While drivers are still required by law to report crashes involving death or injury to police within 90 minutes, other crashes may now be reported online, particularly those where no one has been injured and that involve less than $3,000 damage. To report a crash online and to understand the report criteria, visit www.reportacrash.police.sa.gov.au.
If you have been in a crash and deemed to be more than 25% responsible, you will be liable to pay an excess should someone lodge an injury claim against the crash
