Have you had an accident in Queensland or New South Wales? No Solicitor, irrespective of their experience or knowledge, is able to tell you how much your claim will be worth at the outset. This is because the amount your claim will be worth is based upon medico-legal reports which can not be obtained until the injuries stabilize and this can take approximately 6 to 12 months. Also, your individual circumstances including the impact of the injury may on your life in the long term.
At times liability considerations (e.g. contributory negligence on the part of the injured party) can have a significant impact on the quantum (or amount) of your claim. Once all relevant expert reports have been obtained and information considered your solicitor will be able to guide you through the negotiation process and recommend offers. However before such time any indication as the quantum of your claim is a mere ‘stab in the dark’.
