Injuries from car accidents
Your injuries can keep you from doing everyday activities and returning to work to earn an income. It doesn’t matter if you were the driver or the passenger, you may be entitled to make a car accident compensation claim.
Whether the incident has resulted in a whiplash injury, neck injury, back injury, broken bones or any other type of injury, we can help. When making a claim, the extent of the injuries you’ve sustained are taken into account alongside lost wages, medical expenses and future loses.

Common questions about Car Accident Lawyers
It is possible you will lose your right to make a compensation claim if you try to bring about a claim after the time limit has expired. Contact Shine Lawyers today to find out if you can make a claim.
The first step is to contact Shine Lawyers and have an obligation free first consultation. At this point you will get a good idea if you have a claim for compensation, and the next steps involved when it comes to bringing it forward.
The legal costs themselves are determined by the amount of work required to resolve our claim. The whole process is very transparent.
For the most part, it depends on things such as:
- How severe your injuries are
- How much you have lost and will lose in wages
- How much care you need
- How much you have paid out of your own pocket.
Damage taken to your own car or the contents within it can usually be claimed through your own car insurance provider. It is possible that the insurer will agree to pay for some or all of the costs for your ongoing treatment as well, so that you are not out of pocket while waiting for the claim to be finalised.
In most cases a monetary value is placed on the gap between your life path before injury and your life path since the injury.
Most people making car accident compensation legal claims choose not to act for themselves and instead engage an expert compensation lawyer. The best compensation lawyers can provide the knowledge and experience required to help guide a case to a successful outcome.
It doesn't matter if you are located close or far away from a Shine Lawyers office - we will always provide the same, expert advice and manage your claim with the same level of quality and commitment.

An opinion piece by Stephen Roche They say no good deed goes unnoticed. When you’re working hard someone is always watching. It’s a lesson hard to be mindful of.
