I was injured in an accident recently, but I’m not sure if I can take legal action. Who should I talk to about my ability to file a claim?
If you sustained an injury in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another person, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the person who caused the accident. It is highly recommend you do not talk to anyone before first speaking to an experienced and ethical personal injury lawyer at Sydney Compensation Lawyers Group. They can determine your ability to file a claim and will make sure you do not jeopardize your ability to get compensation by providing information to someone who may try to use it against you later in the claims process.
What types of compensation can I collect?
It is important to note, every case is different and the compensation awarded in each case varies. Some of the more common types of damages victims can recover monetary compensation for, include:
- Medical costs (doctor visits, medical equipment, surgeries)
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Other types of damages
Can I wait to file a claim?
The dedicated personal injury solicitors at Sydney Compensation Lawyers Group do not advise injured victims to wait to take legal action. Per state law, victims only have six months to file a claim against the at fault party. Six months can pass very quickly and once the time allowed by the state expires, victims will be denied the ability to pursue monetary compensation from the negligent party.
How long will the claims process take?
Due to the complexity of personal injury claims, it typically takes one to three years (from the date the accident occurred) to resolve a case. Although one to three years may sound like a long time, the legal process cannot be rushed.
