“Every claim is different and success often depends upon the fine details of how one came to be injured,” Chris Sheppard, compensation division leader at RMB Lawyers said. “RMB can help claimants throughout the entire process from virtually the time of the accident, right through until the claim is resolved by way of a payment of compensation to them.”

It is vitally important the claim is lodged early, correctly and takes into account one’s personal circumstances. “Work injuries need to be reported as soon as possible following the accident and a formal claim made within six months of the date of the accident,” Mr Sheppard said. “Claims can be made after six months but valid and acceptable reasons have to be given for doing so.
“Asbestos claims can be brought forward at any time and are not subject to limitation periods. All other types of claims should be made within three years of the date of the event which caused the injury. Again, extensions of this three year period can be applied for, but it is safer to make sure you claim within this time frame.”
Injuries sustained in an accident can often lead to financial hardship and significant changes to one’s life in general (e.g. by not being able to work, enjoy recreational activities), RMB Lawyers will ensure they get the treatment they require and the financial support that they are entitled to by law.
Many injured people who often have a valid claim do not pursue it because they are concerned about the legal costs they may incur. With RMB Lawyers, they conduct an assessment of your claim on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis. If you have a valid claim to pursue you will not have to pay unless your claim is successful.
