How long will my compensation take?

A frequently asked question.


There is a common misconception that compensation claims take years and years of work before you ever see a result.

As a result, people are reluctant to claim for compensation because they believe the time and effort will not be worth the compensation they receive at the end of a compensation claim.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

While it is true that some compensation claims can take years to settle, the reality is most compensation claims take just over a year.

That’s because the biggest indicator of how long your compensation claim takes is the severity of your situation.

In Queensland, over 70% of compensation claims are for minor impact. These compensation claims typically don’t take long to settle.

While this might be the average time it takes to see results, each person’s situation is unique…

..and each person’s compensation claim time is therefore also unique.
