Claiming in Albany

Claiming After a No-Fault incident in Albany

We have specialist lawyers that can help you make a successful claim for your no-fault accident.

Claiming in Albany

Claims for compensation should normally be made in within 36 months 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.

The bulk of the work relating to your claim will be carried out by our lawyers in Perth.

Note: You will not be required to travel at any point during the case.

All meetings with your lawyer will be conducted at our Albany branch.

How long will the claims process take?

In most cases, claims for compensation take more than 12 months to finalise.

Small claims for minor injuries 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 injury claims, it’s not unusual that they take three years plus to settle.

How much are you entitled to?

There is no one size fits all solution we can use when it comes to calculating your final settlement.

The amount that will be 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 compensation 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 an advisor using our calculator.

How to find the best lawyer to act for you

Although all solicitors must be fully qualified to practice, the level of skill and experience varies drastically.

Lawyers specialise in many different areas of the law.

For example, some specialise in conveyancing and others might practice commercial litigation

We work with some of the most experienced solicitors Albany has to offer and specialise in all areas of no fault compensation.
