Our Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

What can I make a claim for?

You can claim for the following:

  1. loss of past income
  2. loss of future income
  3. pain and suffering
  4. out of pocket expenses (e.g. medications, hospitalisation, physiotherapy, surgery, chiropractic treatment) and
  5. any necessary care or assistance you have required or will require in the future.

Who can make a claim?

You are entitled to claim for damages as long as you are either not at fault, or if the accident was only partially your fault. You can also claim if you were a passenger in a car or on a motorcycle. You can claim if you were a pedestrian or on a bicycle and were hit by a car, truck, motorcycle, or any other registered motor vehicle. You can even claim if you were the driver or passenger and the crash happened because of a defect in your vehicle.

Are there any time limits to claiming?

You must lodge your claim within 9 months of the date of the accident, or within 1 month of consulting a solicitor. If you do not, you can still lodge a claim, but you will have to reasonably explain the delay.

Further, if you do not commence Court proceedings within three 3 years from the date of accident, then you will forever lose your right to claim.

How much will I get?

The worth or “quantum” of your claim depends on how the accident has impacted on your life, and importantly, your work and earning capacity. If the impact is minimal and you make a quick and complete recovery from your injuries, then your claim is likely to be modest.

If however, the injuries affect your ability to perform your work or even require that you need to change your employment, your claim is necessarily likely to be much more significant.

How much does it cost to make a claim?

Most of our compensation claims can be run under our “No Win/No Fee” policy. In other words, you will only need to pay our professional fees if there is a judgement or settlement in your favour.

The Claims Process

PROCESS

Our team of expert compensation lawyers will try to keep the claim process as easy and stress-free as possible for you.

1. We start with an initial meeting to discuss you situation and assess your claim.

2. We’ll lodge your claim with the insurer and check for claim compliance.

3. We’ll start to build your case by gathering all required evidence and investigating the incident further.

4. We can arrange with insurers to fund any required ongoing rehabilitation.

5. We will arrange all necessary medical and expert’s reports to support your claim.

6. Negotiation proceedings will take place next, and we’ll aim to reach a settlement for you with the insurer.

7. If court proceedings are required, we’ll prepare for this with you.

8. Once settlement has been reached – whether through negotiation or trial – we’ll make sure your payment is processed as quickly as possible.
