Making a claim in Alice Springs
Generally, cases must be made in within three years of having your accident.
This timeframe isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to reimbursement is to speak with one of our specialists.
To make a successful claim your lawyer will need to prove that the other party is the one responsible.
How long does a claim take?
Generally, cases take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor vehicle mishap and whiplash claims can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more serious your wounds are, the longer the case will take. For some serious cases, it’s not unusual that they take three years plus to settle.
How much can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your entitlements.
The amount 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 entitlements 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 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 online estimator.
