Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in Broken Hill. We have expert lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Claims in Broken Hill
Claims, in general, are usually within 36 months of having your accident.
This timeframe isn’t definite because there are exceptions. The best way to know whether you can claim compensation for your injury is to speak with one of our lawyers.
To make a prosperous claim your lawyer will need to demonstrate that someone else was responsible for your injuries.
How long does a case take to finalise?
In most cases, claims take more than a year to settle. For minor injuries, these cases can be settled within a year. In most instances, the more serious the injury is, the longer proceedings will take to settle. In serious circumstances, these can take more than 3 years 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 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 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, without having to speak to a lawyer using our online tool.
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 specialise in family law. Choosing someone who has experience with cases like yours will give you the best chance of success. We work with some of the most experienced solicitors Broken Hill has to offer who specialise in all types of cases. To find out whether you are eligible with, us call our Broken Hill lawyers on 1800 106 107. All calls are free, and we won’t pressure you into starting proceedings.
Do Broken Hill claimants have to use a local law firm?
You don’t need to pick a lawyer in Broken Hill 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 Broken Hill. This is because you need to attend a medical to have your injuries assessed as part of the claims process.
