Claiming for a No-Fault Accident in QLD. We have specialist lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Making a claim in Bundaberg
Generally, cases have to be made within 36 months of having your accident.
This timeframe isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to check whether or not you are eligible to claim reimbursement is to speak with one of our legal advisors.
To make a successful claim your lawyer will need to prove that the other party is the one at fault.
How long does a claim take?
Usually, cases take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor vehicle mishaps and whiplash claims can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more severe your wounds are, the longer the claim will take. For some serious cases, it’s not unusual for them to take three years plus to be settled.
How much can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your reimbursement.
The amount owed to plaintiffs depends on the severity of their wound and the state in which they suffered them.
Some of the main things a solicitor will consider when negotiating your entitlements 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 an advisor by using our online estimator.
