How to make a claim in Adelaide
Claims are usually made in within three years of when you first noticed you were injured to be eligible for compensation.
This timeframe isn’t concrete as there are many exceptions that affect the rules. The best way to find out if you are entitled to make a claim for your injury would be to talk to one of our specialists.
To make a successful claim your personal injury lawyer needs to prove that the defendant was partly or fully responsible for the accident that caused you injury.
How long do personal injury claims take to finalise?
Most personal injury claims can take in excess of one year to finalise. Some cases our lawyers handle such as minor car accident claims or whiplash claims can be settled within twelve months. As a rule of thumb, the more severe your injury, the longer the claims process will be. For some serious injury claims, the process could be much longer.
To estimate how long your claim may take to complete, call to us today with no obligation.
How much compensation can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your compensation.
The amount of compensation owed to plaintiffs depends on the severity of their injuries and the State in which they suffered them.
Some of the main things a solicitor will consider when negotiating your compensation will include.
- Any time off work and lost earnings
- Any future lost earnings
- Any changes in your ability to work
- Care or support, even if given to you for free by family or friends
- Any adaptations you might need to your home or motor vehicle
- Travel and accommodation expenses
At this stage it is impossible to give you an accurate estimation of what you could receive however, you can make your own assessment online, without having to speak to a lawyer using our compensation calculator.
