    Personal injury claims in Ballarat

    Claims for compensation in Ballarat and Victoria fall under the wrongs act. If you’ve had an accident that wasn’t your fault then you generally have up to three years to do something about it however, there may be exceptions if you’ve left it too late. In order for a personal injury lawsuit to be a success, your lawyer must prove that the other party (defendant) is the one responsible for your misfortune.

    When you speak to a personal injury lawyer he or she will discuss the ins and outs of the law with you and great detail and also let you know if you are eligible to take advantage of a conditional fee arrangement. If you are and you decide to take action, if for some reason your case is not successful, you won’t be left out of pocket.

    To get the ball rolling you can call us on 03 8804 5769. All calls are strictly confidential and you won’t be pressured into starting proceedings.

    How long does the claims process take?

    Unfortunately, if you’ve had a major accident or suffered a serious injury it’s more than likely going to take quite a while to settle your case. We usually say that minor matters can be finalised in twelve months while anything more complex can take up to three years and in some extreme circumstances even five. But rest assured, our panel of injury lawyers acting in Ballarat will push to get you maximum compensation in minimum time.

    How much can I get?

    There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating a plaintiffs entitlements. The amount that is owed to victims depends on the severity of their injuries and the state in which they suffered them.

    Some of the main things your solicitor will consider when negotiating will include.

    • Any time off work and lost earnings
    • 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
    • and 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 member of our team using our online tool.
