Claiming Compensation After Suffering a No-Fault Accident In NSW. Millner and Knight work with some of best personal injury lawyers practising in Cessnock. We deal all claims on a No Win, No Worries basis.
Making a claim in Cessnock
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, personal injury claims take more than a year to settle. Insignificant car accident claims and whiplash cases can be settled within a year. In most instances, the more serious the injury is, the longer the claim will take to settle. In serious circumstances, claims can take more than 3 years to settle.
How much compensation can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your compensation.
The amount of compensation 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 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 speak to a lawyer using our compensation calculator.
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 personal injury law. For example, some specialise in road traffic accidents, while other lawyers specialise in workplace cases. Choosing someone who has experience with cases like yours will give your claim the best chance of success. We work with some of the most experienced solicitors Cessnock has to offer who specialise in all types of cases. To find out whether you can claim with us call our Cessnock lawyers on 1800 106 107. All calls are free, and we won’t pressure you into starting a claim with us.
Do Cessnock claimants have to use a local law firm?
You don’t need to pick a lawyer in Cessnock to handle your claim because most lawyers now operate nationwide. For this reason, you don’t need to choose a local law firm.

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 Cessnock.
