How Can I Make a TAC Claim?
To lodge a claim with the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), your accident must be legally classed as a ‘transport accident’ (an incident arising out of the driving of a motor vehicle, car, tram or train).
For your claim to be accepted, the TAC requires the transport accident to have been reported to the police, train operator, and/or tram operator. The easiest way to claim is to contact the TAC on 1300 654 329 and complete a claim document over the phone, which the TAC will then send through to you.
A claim for injury compensation must be lodged within 12 months of the date of the transport accident.
