Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in Port Macquarie. We have expert lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Claiming in Port Macquarie
In most cases, claims should be made in within three years of having your accident.
This 3-year window isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to be certain whether or not you can claim compensation for your injury is to speak with one of our specialist lawyers.
To make a successful claim your lawyer needs 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 a year to finalise. Minor injuries can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. Generally, the more serious your injury is, the longer your claim will take. For some serious injuries, it’s not uncommon that they take three years plus to settle.
How much am I entitled to?
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 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.

Do Port Macquarie claimants have to use a local law firm?
You don’t need to engage a lawyer in Port Macquarie to act on your behalf. With many lawyers now operating nationwide, it is no longer important to hire a local law firm. However, if you do hire a national firm, it’s critical to find out if they are partnered with medico-legal centres. This is because you will be expected to attend a medical to have your injuries assessed by a specialist.
