Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in NSW. We have specialist lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for a no-fault accident.
Making a claim in Muswellbrook
Generally, cases are usually within 36 months of having your accident.
This time frame isn’t definite because there are exceptions. The best way to know whether you can claim, and what your entitlement could be is to speak with one of our lawyers.
To make a prosperous claim your lawyer will need to demonstrate that someone else was responsible.
How long does a case take to finalise?
Usually, cases take more than a year to settle. Insignificant vehicle mishaps and whiplash cases can be settled within a year. In most instances, the more serious the wounds are, the longer the claim will take to settle. In serious circumstances, claims can take more than 3 years to settle.
How much can I get?
There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your final settlement.
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 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 a lawyer using our online estimator.
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 law. For example, some specialise in criminal law, while other lawyers specialise in family law.
