How long does a claim take?
In most cases, claims take more than 12 months to finalise. Minor claims sometimes be finalised in 12 months. As a rule of thumb, the more serious your injuries are, the longer your claim will take. For some serious matters, it’s not unusual that they take more than 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 entitlements.
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 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 vehicle
- Travel and accommodation expenses
