What compensation benefits are paid by the insurer upfront?

The only benefits that are paid upfront by the insurer are in relation to medical expenses.

Occasionally if you are seriously injured an insurer will also pay for attendant care services. Attendant care services are services that provide assistance to people with everyday tasks and activities of daily living and can include personal assistance, nursing assistance, home maintenance and domestic services.

In the majority of claims however the insurer will only pay for the cost of medical treatment up front.

Your remaining entitlements to compensation are not payable until the conclusion of the claim.
