Accidents Happen

Accidents involving motor vehicles occur all too frequently—and even the safest of drivers can be involved in an accident. Our specialists team at MEJ are here to ensure that you get the compensation you deserve.

The claim process

If you’ve been involved in an accident that isn’t your fault then you may be entitled to compensation—but it’s important to act quickly.

The ACT has laws to protect you and your family but time limits apply, and the rules are constantly changing.

After you have reported the accident to the police, call MEJ and we can guide you through the process. If needed we can come to visit you in hospital or at your home.
