Legal Aid WA has a new online self-help guide for car crashes. It can help you deal with damage to cars and property after an accident.
It covers what to do at the scene of an accident, options to cover the costs of having your car repaired, and what to do if you are asked to pay for damage caused to other cars or property. It explains how to deal with insurers and what to do if your case ends up at court, including if a judgment is made.
The guide includes checklists to use at different stages and examples of letters that can be sent to the other driver, insurers, and the Financial Ombudsman Service.
You can find the new car crash guide with our other self-help topics under RESOURCES.
