Claiming compensation after a no-fault accident in TAS. Millner and Knight have some of the best personal injury lawyers Launceston has to offer. We handle all types of accident compensation on a No Win No Drama basis.

Claiming in Launceston

Claims, in general, must be made in within three years of having your accident.

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

To make a successful claim your lawyer will need to prove that the other party is the one responsible for your injuries.

How long does a personal injury claim take?

In most cases, claims take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor 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, it’s not unusual for these to 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 calculating how much 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

Although all solicitors must be fully qualified to practice, the level of skill and experience varies drastically. Lawyers specialise in many different areas of law.
