Got questions? We’ve got answers.

1

Yes, strict time limits apply. The limit is 3 years from the date of the accident for most claims, unless you were under 18 when the injury occurred. Some exceptions apply, we recommend seeking legal advice as soon as possible.

2

The majority of injury compensation claims can be completed within 12-18 months. Time is needed for your injuries to become stable to determine the likely long term impacts of the injury. Very complicated matters can take longer.

3

Compensation is paid by the insurer of the party at fault. For car accidents, this is the CTP Insurer of the vehicle at fault. For work injuries the claim is paid by WorkCover or the workers compensation insurer. Claims are not made directly against individuals.

4

We offer a ‘No Win. No Fee. No Catch’ promise, which means there are no upfront costs and you will never be left out of pocket. We explain our fees to you before we start your claim, and they are always calculated on the actual work we do (not a fixed fee or percentage).

5

The value of a claim depends on many factors such as severity of injury, liability, injury recovery progress & impact on future earnings. Two people with the same injury may have very different compensation figures. Our team will investigate your situation & get expert reports before providing estimates.

In short, no. Typically, ‘no win, no fee’ arrangements have some risks. For example, lose your case in court & you may be liable for the other sides costs. Our ‘No Win. No Fee. No Catch’ promise removes all risks. Nothing to pay us, or anyone else, unless we win.
