What is TAC?

  • Motor vehicle accidents can lead to significant injuries. Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission (the “TAC”) provides compensation to Victorians injured in motor vehicle accidents who qualify under the relevant laws.

  • If you have been injured in a motor vehicle, train, or tram accident that has occurred in Victoria, or a cyclist or a pedestrian injured by a vehicle, you may be entitled to compensation from the TAC. You may also be entitled to compensation from the TAC if you are injured by a Victorian registered motor vehicle in another state of Australia.​

  • Not everyone who is injured in a motor vehicle accident qualifies.

What compensation am I able to receive if I have been injured in a motor vehicle accident?


Medical expenses
If you have been injured in a motor vehicle, train or tram accident the TAC can cover all medical services that are reasonable and related to the accident. You should note that a medical excess will apply if you have not been admitted as a hospital inpatient.
To receive medical expenses, you will need to lodge a claim with the TAC. Loss of earnings benefits If you are unable to work because of a motor vehicle accident loss of earnings benefits are available for 18 months after an injury. After this period loss of earning capacity benefits may be payable for a further 18 months.
To receive loss of earnings benefits you will need to lodge a claim with the TAC.
Impairment Benefits If you suffer from a permanent impairment from a motor vehicle accident that meets the threshold you may be eligible to receive a one-off lump sum of compensation from the TAC known as an impairment benefit. The impairment benefit is open to adults or children. Common Law Damages If you have suffered a serious injury in a TAC accident and the accident was the fault of another person, you may be able to receive common law damages for your injury. Common law damages under TAC may be for both pain and suffering and for loss of earning capacity.
To make a claim for damages under TAC you will need to make a serious injury application to the TAC.
Please note time limits apply to making a serious injury application to TAC and you should seek legal advice regarding your rights.
