This timeframe isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to compensation for your injury is to speak with one of our specialists.

How long does a personal injury claim take?
In most cases, claims take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor accidents and injuries can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more serious your injury is, the longer the claim will take. For some serious injuries, it’s not unusual that they 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 estimating your payout.
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 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 member of our team using our online tool.
