Millner and Knight have some of the best personal injury lawyers Bendigo has to offer. We handle all types of accident compensation via our No- Risk Fee Agreement.
Personal injury claims Bendigo
Personal injury claims in Bendigo are governed by the state of Victoria’s Wrongs Act of 1958.
Under the Act, you may be eligible for compensation if:
- You’ve been in an accident that wasn’t your fault
- sustained a personal injury
- incurred an economic or non-economic loss
- your claim isn’t statute-barred because youve missed the deadline
In most cases, claims in Victoria should be launched within three years of having your accident but you may still be able to launch proceedings after 3 years in certain instances. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to compensation for your injury is to speak with one of our lawyers on 03 8804 5769.
To make a successful claim your lawyer will need to prove that the other party is the one responsible for your injuries.
How long does a personal injury claim take?
In most cases, claims for compensation take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor accidents and injuries claims can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more serious your injury is, the longer it will take. For some serious injuries, it’s not unusual that they take three years plus to settle.
What’s my injury worth?
This is one of the most common questions we get asked by plaintiffs but unfortunately, there is no one size fits all solution for calculating your entitlements. However, you can make your own estimation by using our online calculator.
Some of the main things your lawyer will consider when negotiating with the defending party include.
- Any time off and lost earnings
- Any future lost earnings
- Any changes in your ability to earn money
- 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
- And more
Generally, the more severe an injury is, the more it’s worth.
