Car accident compensation scheme covers injured people, even if the car at fault was unregistered or could not be located after a 'hit and run' motor vehicle accident.
City Lawyers and Consultants will work in all compensation claims on a NO WIN NO FEE basis, this means that we DO NOT require you to pay ANY up-front fees to pursue personal injury compensation claims.
We do not charge our legal fees until your claim is successful. At the conclusion of the claim, the insurer is likely to pay the majority of the costs and disbursements (or all of them in some cases).
Please note our fee structure in personal injury matters complies with recommended by the Law Society of NSW costs/fees disclosure.
There is a timeframe to lodge car accident injury claims and you need to act fast. If the claim is accepted, the Insurer will pay or reimburse you for your medical treatment expenses.
Claims for damages must be made within 3 years from the date of the car accident. If your injuries are assessed at 10% or less ‘whole person impairment’, you must make your claim between 20 months and 3 years after the MVA.
If your injuries are assessed as more than 10% ‘whole person impairment", you can make the car accident claim any time.
A person who was injured in a car accident could claim medical treatment expenses, weekly payments (loss of wages), funeral expenses, compensation to relatives in some cases common law damages. If the claim is denied by the insurer, the injured person can apply to the Personal Injury Commission to determine the claim.

Alex R., Unfair Will/Contesting Will
"I had a very positive experience with your firm and thanks to Lana and Vincent who completed my claim against my mother's estate who did not leave me a cent in a will in 2017 when she died. I would like to especially thank Lana. She has a perfect mix of professionalism and empathy plus an exceptional personal dedication to her clients to bring about the best outcome. She made me feel secure and confident and that is at the time when my own family let me down big time! She is positive, knows her stuff and tells things how they are, which is exactly what I needed. She is such a good listener! I appreciate what you have done for me!"
