Claims In Cessnock

Claiming Compensation After Suffering a No-Fault Accident In NSW

Australian Accident helpline works with some of best personal injury lawyers practising in Cessnock. We deal all claims on a No Win, No Worries basis.

Making a claim in Cessnock

Claims, in general, are usually within 36 months of having your accident.

This timeframe isn’t definite because there are exceptions. The best way to know whether you can claim compensation for your injury is to speak with one of our lawyers.

To make a prosperous claim your lawyer will need to demonstrate that someone else was responsible for your injuries.

How long does a case take to finalise?

In most cases, personal injury claims take more than a year to settle. Insignificant car accident claims and whiplash cases can be settled within a year. In most instances, the more serious the injury is, the longer the claim will take to settle. In serious circumstances, claims can take more than 3 years to settle.

How much compensation can I get?

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

The amount of compensation 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 motor 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 a lawyer using our compensation calculator.

How to find the best lawyer to act for you
