Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in Orange. We have expert lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Claiming in Orange
Personal injury claims should usually be lodged within three years of having your accident.
The timeframe isn’t set in stone as there are many reasons why this timeframe can be extended. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to injury compensation is to speak with one of our specialists.
To make a successful claim your lawyer will need to demonstrate that another other party is the one responsible for your injuries.
How long does a personal injury claim take?
In most circumstances, claims take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor injuries can be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more serious the injury, the longer the claim will take to settle. For very serious injuries, it’s not uncommon 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 calculating what 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 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 lawyer using our online tool.
