Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in NSW. We have specialist lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Making a claim in Queanbeyan
The lodging of personal cases should usually be made within three years of your accident taking place.
This time frame isn’t set in stone though as there are some exceptions. The best way to be assured whether or not you are entitled to reimbursement is to talk with one of our legal advisors.
To make a successful case your lawyer will need to demonstrate that another party is the one accountable.
How long does a claim take?
In most instances, cases take more than 12 months to conclude. Insignificant vehicle mishaps and whiplash cases can sometimes be finalised within 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more grave your wounds are, the longer your injury case will take. For some severe cases, it’s not surprising when 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 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
