Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in Berwick. We have expert lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Claims in Berwick
Claims, in general, must usually be made within three years of having your accident although there are some exceptions. The best way to check 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 take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor accidents and injuries are occasionally finalised within 12 months. It’s an unwritten rule that the more serious your injury is, the longer proceedings will take. For some more serious cases, it’s not unusual for the claim to 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 how much you could be due.
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 lawyer will consider when negotiating your compensation 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 call our team using our calculator.
