Claiming After Suffering a No-Fault Accident in Rockhampton. We have expert lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.
Claims in Rockhampton
Claims, in general, must be made in within three years of having your accident.
This timeframe isn’t set in stone as there are some exceptions. The best way to be sure whether or not you are entitled to compensation for your injury is to speak with one of our specialists.
To make a successful claim your lawyer will need to prove that the other party is the one responsible for your injuries.
How long does a claim take?
In most cases, claims take more than 12 months to finalise. For minor injuries and accidents, these can sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more serious your injury is, the longer the claim will take. For some serious injuries, it’s not unusual that they take three years plus to settle.
How much compensation 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 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 one of our advisors by using our online calculator.
