Claiming after suffering a no-fault injury in NSW. We have specialist lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.

Making a claim in Nowra

Generally, cases must be made in within three years of having your accident.

This time frame isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to reimbursement is to speak with one of our specialists.

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

Usually, cases take more than 12 months to complete. Minor cases relating to minor injuries can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more complex your wounds are, the longer your claim will take. For some serious injury cases, it’s not unusual that they take 36 months 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 final settlement.

The amount owed to plaintiffs depends on the severity of their wounds 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 transport
  • 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.
