TAC & Work Safe
CommCare is a registered provider of attendant care and in home support through the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and the Victorian Workcover Authority (WorkSafe Victoria).
The TAC is a Victorian Government-owned organisation whose role is to promote road safety, improve the State's trauma system and support those who have been injured on our roads. The TAC pays benefits to people injured in transport accidents.
The funds the TAC needs to perform these functions come from payments made by Victorian motorists when they register their vehicles each year with VicRoads.
The TAC covers transport accidents directly caused by the driving of a car, motorcycle, bus, train or tram. The TAC can provide support services for people injured in a transport accident as a driver, passenger, pedestrian, motorcyclist, or in some cases, a cyclist.
The TAC is a 'no-fault' scheme. This means that medical benefits will be paid to an injured person regardless of who caused the accident.
You can make a claim if:
You, or someone you represent, was involved in an accident caused by the driving of a car, motorcycle, bus, train or tram, and
You, or someone you represent, was injured or died in the accident.
Pedestrians and cyclists who were injured or died in accidents caused by the driving of a car, motorcycle, bus, train or tram are also covered.
If you have made a claim and are entitled to receive services Commcare can provide these services and help you get the most out of your TAC funding.
