Are There Any Time Limits to Lodge a Claim?
The simple answer is yes. Different states have different time limits in relation to motor vehicle accident claims. It is advised to submit your claim as soon as possible to avoid any time-sensitive file lodgements. Our expert motor vehicle lawyers will be able to tell you when the best time to lodge your claim is and if there are any applicable time limits for your case.
How Long Will It Take to Receive Compensation?
This depends on your situation and the details of your case. It can take anywhere from between one to three years to receive any compensation. It may take longer because:
- Injuries sustained in the accident have not stabilised or resolved.
- Difficulties negotiating your compensation claim with the applicable insurance company.
- Court delays - if your claim needs to go to court
