This timeframe isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to check whether or not you are entitled to compensation for the injury you’ve suffered 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 or less serious 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 can 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 your payout.
The amount that is owed to plaintiffs depends on the severity of their injuries and also the State in which they occurred.
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 member of our team using our compensation calculator.
