Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident In NSW. We have specialist lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Making a claim in Ballina
Generally, cases are usually within 36 months of having your accident.
This time frame isn’t definite because there are exceptions. The best way to know whether you can claim an entitlement is to speak with one of our lawyers. To make a prosperous claim your lawyer will need to demonstrate that someone else was responsible.
How long does a case take to finalise?
Usually, cases take more than a year to settle. Insignificant vehicle mishap and whiplash cases can be settled within a year. In most instances, the more serious the wounds are, the longer the claim will take to settle. In serious circumstances, claims can take more than 3 years to settle.

Claiming with no upfront fees in Ballina
When you make a claim with us, if your case isn’t successful you won’t need to pay any legal fees. If your case is a successful one, your lawyer’s fees that you will have already agreed will be taken from your final settlement. In most cases, the losing side will normally pay a large part of your legal expense.
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 wounds 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, using our online estimator.
How to find the best lawyer to act for you
All solicitors must be qualified in order to practice law, but the level of talent and experience varies. Lawyers specialise in several different areas of law. For example, some specialise in criminal law, while other lawyers may practice family law.
Choosing someone who has experience with cases like yours will give your claim the best chance of success. We work with some of the most experienced solicitors Ballina has to offer who specialise in all types of cases. To find out whether you can claim with us call our Ballina lawyers on 1800 106 107.

Do Ballina claimants have to use a local law firm?
You don’t need to pick a lawyer in Ballina to handle your case because most lawyers now operate nationwide. For this reason, you don’t need to choose a local law firm. However, if you decide to hire a national firm, check if they are partnered with local medical centres in Ballina. This is because you need to attend a medical to have your wounds assessed.
Millner and Knight are a national claims management company with lawyers and medical centres in Ballina.
