Hi people, This is my first post here. My reason for joining is to hear people's dealings with TAC regarding serious personal injury incurred because of no fault motorcycle accidents. Although I have engaged a personal injury lawyer I'm curious as to hearing directly from people that have had dealings and their personal opinions. Mid last year I was riding my brand spanking new 2014 Ducati Streetfighter 848 through an intersection near home on a green light. Light traffic so I was travelling at the speed limit, 60km/h, and an elderly lady decided I was surplus to requirements and turned directly in front of me. I struck her vehicle directly on the B pillar so from all reports it was a dead stop from speed. This resulted in: Fractured skull Subdural Heamatoma Fractured cheek Lacerated cheek Fractured C5 & C6 Brachial Plexus Injury Fractured all my ribs on my left side Punctured left lung Bruised heart Bruised spleen Trauma induced hernia (2" tea right) Nerve damage to my left leg & knee Severely lacerated & fractured left ankle I ended up spending 14 days in ICU @ The Alfred Hospital and 2.5 months in the acquired brain injury unit at The Epworth Hospital. I had 3 surgeries so far, 2 nerve transfers to repair the BPI injury and 1 to repair the major abdominal damage. I'm still attending hospital based rehab 4 days a week (hydrotherapy, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, hand therapy) to try and get my arm working again and get some strength back to my leg. Also to try and get some strength and fitness back. I still have some memory issues and I'm still on medication for pain, nerve pain and mood stabilisers. Ultimately, and obviously, this has changed my life drastically. I've been off work for 15 months and physically I'm struggling with everyday, simple things like dressing, showering, cooking etc. My questions to anyone with experience or information are as follows: What is the process for compensation payments from TAC. I'm booked for assessment next month but what does this entail? And is it a pretty straight forward thing? As it was a no fault accident, what is your experience with that process? How long does the mediation take. Did you end up in court etc. Does anyone have links to past BPI injury cases that I can read through. As I said, I have engaged legal council but I'd like to hear from people that have been through it also. Thanks for listening!
