How much can I get?

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 your payout 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.

Do Blue Mountains claimants have to use a local law firm?
You don’t need to pick a lawyer in Blue Mountains to handle your claim 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 Blue Mountains. This is because you need to attend a medical to have your injuries assessed as part of the claims process. Millner and Knight are a national claims management company with lawyers and medical centres in Blue Mountains.
