What should I do now?
The key to this process is ensuring that you provide sufficient detailed information, so the assessor has a clear understanding of how the offence has impacted your life. This information can take the form of a very detailed statement from you and/or medical reports from relevant treating practitioners or specialists. You must lodge the application within three years of the date of the offence. However, the assessor has the discretion to accept claims (filed outside of this three-year period).
All you need to do is call us and we will take care of the rest.
Will this cost me anything?
When you engage PPIL you won’t pay anything throughout the whole claims process. Once we have settled your claim, we’ll then determine how much our services cost. The majority of our fees will be covered by the insurance company, and we also place a cap on the fees you pay which is based off of your claim.
So, if you do end up having to pay anything, it would only come to a maximum of 10% of your claim.
(e.g. if your claim came to $50,000 then you would only ever pay a maximum of $5,000 as a contribution to the legal fees)
