Motor Vehicle Law
The majority of lawyers within Moray & Agnew’s motor vehicle law practice group are accredited specialists in their field of specialisation.
At Moray & Agnew we have a strong commitment to alternative dispute resolution which produces exceptional results – over 80% of matters received are settled well prior to any hearing date being allocated by the Court. Indeed, of all matters received there is an average finalisation period of less than 25 weeks.
To achieve these outstanding results requires dedicated lawyers who maintain control of each claim from start to finish. This ensures not only continuity, consistency and efficiency in conduct of the claim but also maximum communication with all parties concerned. In addition, our up-to-date technology enables us to meet the most stringent reporting requirements.
Motor vehicle law is ever changing. An integral part of the service we provide to our clients are seminars on all aspects of legislation, recent judgments and practice. In addition, our lawyers are available at any time to provide quick and accurate telephone advice.
Handling the modern motor vehicle claim is not limited to just defending an action in Court or in the Claims Assessment Resolution Services. It requires fast determination of whether a claim should proceed along that course or rather, be subject to intensive and early alternative dispute resolution. Open communication between the lawyer and client, together with accurate reporting is essential. The lawyer must also be able to provide a method by which the client can be kept up to date of all changes that will affect their business. No one understands these challenges and duties better than the motor vehicle law team at Moray & Agnew.
In addition to motor vehicle claims, team members are also highly experienced in all aspect of catastrophic claims. Complementing the catastrophic claims experience of our motor vehicle law team members is a dedicated team of experts who specialise solely in managing multi-million dollar catastrophic injury claims. The practice group is centred in Sydney and provides services to clients Australia-wide. The integration of our motor vehicle law and catastrophic claims teams allows us to advise and represent insurers and self insured corporations in relation to the myriad of issues arising from motor accident, transport and other industrial claims.
