What is a personal injury claim?

Personal injury claims aim to provide financial support to individuals who have suffered physical or psychological injuries as a result of negligence or misconduct from others. So, this could be a car accident, workplace accident, or other circumstances where you’ve sustained some kind of injury at the fault of someone else. Our personal injury lawyers are here to guide you.

Personal injury lawyers help with a wide range of compensation claims

Why use a personal injury lawyer?

In many personal injury compensation claims, you technically can represent yourself. There are three key reasons we recommend partnering with a personal injury lawyer. 

The first is that typically, if you’re claiming compensation, you’re injured or have been through something traumatic, you don’t need to add any stress to that scenario. The second is the time required — there’s so much time invested in the behind-the-scenes of these claims. And the third? The amount of compensation you end up claiming — your personal injury compensation claim will be worth much more if you invest in professional legal support.

There may be time limits around your compensation claim. Here’s what you need to know.

There are a few different kinds of personal injury claims — so there will be different time limits depending on the type of claim you have. A lot of different personal injury claims have a time limit of nine months from the date of the incident to notify of your intent to claim and three years from the date of the incident to commence court proceedings. To be sure about the time limits on your particular claim, be sure to contact a personal injury lawyer.

How long does a personal injury compensation claim take?

This will depend from claim to claim. Most claims will take somewhere between 12 and 18 months, but in some scenarios, your claim might be finalised in just six months or in up to three years. 

An important thing to note: a quicker claim is not a better or more successful claim. Often, to get the compensation you deserve, you will need to wait for your injuries to settle and for time to be invested to gather the necessary evidence to support your claim.

Are you eligible for personal injury compensation?

To determine if you have a valid personal injury compensation claim, consider the following factors…

Injury or illness

Your condition must result from an accident or negligence.

Liability

Someone else’s actions or negligence must be responsible for your injury.

Reporting

Often, the sooner you report the incident, the better the outcome will be.

Documentation

Medical records and evidence are essential to support your claim.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a lawyer for a personal injury claim?

No, you don’t need a lawyer to represent you for your personal injury claim. We absolutely recommend you do get one, though. 

Seeking legal representation will improve your chances of success, lead to a bigger claim, and take a lot of the stress and emotion out of the process for you, leading to an overall better experience.

How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?

The timeframe will vary case by case and depend on the claim you’re making. While most personal injury claims will have a time limit of nine months to notify the relevant parties and submit the relevant paperwork or three years to commence court proceedings, it really does depend on the type of claim. 

Regardless of the case or type of claim, though, taking early action is always beneficial, and the sooner you begin the claim and seek legal representation, the better.

What expenses can I claim in a personal injury case?

This will depend on the case and type of claim, but generally, you can claim these kinds of expenses:

  • Medical expenses: hospital bills, rehabilitation, and consultation fees from medical professionals
  • Lost income: past and future
  • General damages: other losses involved in the accident or as a result from the incident
  • Home care: from family or friends or professional care
