Are there time limits in bringing a claim?

There can be. Contact us immediately to see whether you are still within time for making a claim.

How long will my claim take?

Your claim can take anywhere up to 3 months and 3 years. This is because on some occasions we can have your insurer pay to you benefits a short time after we lodge your claim. On other occasions the insurer will refuse to pay you benefits and we will need to fight for you to force them to pay, which may include commencing court proceedings.

Do I need to pay a fee?

You don't pay us a cent unless you win your case and you are paid compensation.
