The duration depends on the claim and the law that applies. Generally, our personal injury lawyers settle our clients’ claims in 12-18 months unless they have had surgery which extends the time frame.
We would recommend you at least ask us:
- Whether you are entitled to compensation benefits or not
- What your entitlements are regarding your personal injury claim
- What time limits apply for your personal injury claim
- What the costs and disbursements are for legal service
- The estimated time it will take to settle your personal injury claim

- Motor Vehicle Accident Claims
- Workers Compensation Claims
- Total and Permanent Disablement Claims
- Medical Negligence Claims
- Public Liability Claims
At Withstand Lawyers our clients do not pay for our costs upfront for their personal injury claims. We also fund the disbursements required in order to obtain the evidence required. Withstand Lawyers deducts its costs from our injured clients’ settlement monies when they are successfully awarded compensation. Our team provides our clients with a No Win No Fee cost agreement that clearly outlines our No Win No Fee policy along with easy to understand details. We work hard to ensure you clearly understand our costs and the process.
The amount of compensation you may receive depends on multiple variables such as where you were injured, the extent of your injuries, financial loss, treatment you require, and pain and suffering you have suffered. There are generally four different entitlements:
- Treatment expenses
- Loss of income
- Domestic care
- Lump-sum payouts for permanent impairment, future lost income or pain and suffering
If you were injured in a motor vehicle accident, the maximum amount payable for the pain and suffering entitlement is $595,000. That is in addition to claiming a lump sum to take into account your future loss of income/opportunity.
In NSW, there are different time limits that apply depending on the type of claim. It is recommended to lodge the relevant form for motor vehicle accident claims, within 28 days, whereas the time limit for workers compensation claims is 6 months from the date of injury. Another important time limit is the time limit that applies to get your claim commenced in court should it be required to do so. The time limit for commencing court proceedings is 3 years from the date of injury. However, that limit may be extended in some circumstances, depending on the situation.
We recommend you contact our personal injury lawyers as soon as possible. The earlier you start, the sooner you may start receiving compensation benefits or at least understand your compensation entitlements, should you choose to claim them. With Withstand Lawyers by your side, you will have clarity as to your compensation entitlements and how to claim them.

Motor vehicle accident compensation is one of the most common personal injury claims, and it includes car, motorcycle, truck, forklift, motorbike, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents.
The main compensation benefits are medical expenses, income support payment, lump sum payouts for future loss of income and pain and suffering. You could also be entitled to claim a lump sum payout.
Even though the time limit is 28 days if claiming past loss of income, otherwise 3 months, our team highly recommends you get free legal advice to know your entitlements before making your claim.
Workers compensation is a type of insurance that supports injured workers. Depending on the injury level, all workers can be entitled to making a workers compensation claim to receive weekly wages, medical expenses, domestic assistance, lump sum payment and work injury payout.
The time limit to lodge your workers compensation claim is 6 months however it’s always better to talk to a workers compensation lawyer to understand your entitlements and how to claim them.
TPD Superannuation insurance benefits provide financial support if you are unable to work for any medical condition, depending on the policy. Depending on the Superannuation fund policy, anyone who has an eligible policy and eligible medical condition can claim TPD Superannuation benefits in a case of injury or illness.
There are generally no time limits attached to the TPD Superannuation claims subject to cover being active but it is recommended to you start your claim as soon as possible to receive your full entitlements and ensure you were covered at the relevant period that is required in your policy.
If you were injured due to negligence in a public or private place including but not limited to slips, trips and falls, you may be entitled to claim public liability compensation by way of a lump sum payout.

Medical negligence/malpractice claims can arise due to negligence of a healthcare provider such as during treatment, cosmetic surgery and GP visit. Medical negligence claims are relatively complex as they require multiple health care professional opinions.
