How long does the claims process take?
Personal injury and insurance claims processes vary depending on the type of claim and how complex the situation is.
It is always better to seek legal assistance from expert personal injury lawyers as early as possible and to make sure you’re meeting all the deadlines to help your case proceed faster.
Motor vehicle, property, business and other general insurance claims, can take between 1-3 months on average. Superannuation and life insurance claims (including TPD, income protection and death benefits) usually take as long as 6-12 months.
Personal injury claims vary depending on the extent and stability of injuries. It can take as long as 12-18 months to obtain necessary evidence and medical reports needed for your claim before you can reach the compulsory conference.
Having said that, there are indeed processes and timeframes that can make this process faster and help you access compensation sooner. The time frame does depend on how stable your injuries are and how soon you’d need medical attention, that’s why every case is different and we can provide you an estimated time frame in your initial consultation with us.
