Motor and traffic accidents

If you have been injured in a road accident and require the services of a psychologist as part of your recovery, your state or territory government may fund the cost of the psychological service. This is administered through a government insurance agency, such as the Traffic Accident Commission in Victoria. Once you have made a claim to the agency, you will be referred to a psychologist. Contact your relevant agency to determine if it covers psychological services:
