Millner and Knight have some of the best personal injury lawyers Bendigo has to offer. We handle all types of accident compensation on a No Win No Payment basis.

Claiming in Bendigo

In most cases, claims in Victoria must be made within three years of having your accident.

This timeframe isn’t set in stone, there are some exceptions. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to compensation for your injury 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 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.

How much can I get?

There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating what you could be owed.

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 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 specialist using our online.

How to find the best lawyer to act for you

Although all solicitors must be fully qualified to practice, the level of skill and experience varies drastically. Lawyers specialise in many different areas of law. For example, some specialise in family law, while others might specialise in criminal law. Choosing someone who specialises in compensation will ensure you get the maximum amount you deserve.

Do Bendigo claimants have to use a local law firm?

You don’t have to choose a lawyer in Bendigo to handle your claim. With many lawyers now operating nationwide, it is no longer necessary go with a local law firm.
