No Win, No Fee

Our no win, no fee policy means that most personal injury claims have no upfront fees.

Key Points:

  • There are myriad factors to consider when seeking damages through the TAC

  • Law firms experienced in road accident claims will often get far better outcomes and larger settlements for clients.


Victoria’s Transport Accident Commission is the body that pays compensation and damages to anyone injured on the road.

A person’s personal circumstance, employment, earning capacity and extent of injury are all considered when determining compensation.

Case Details:

A man aged in his 30s was riding a performance motorcycle in Melbourne’s inner north. He gets cut off by another driver, causing him to smash into the side of a car. He’s thrown off his bike, over the car, and onto the road.

The accident caused extensive damage to one of his legs that would require three rounds of reconstructive surgery, including the insertion of rods and pins. He also suffered psychological trauma.

Carbone Lawyers represented the man in his TAC claim, arguing the extent of the injuries meant that he was unlikely to be able to return to his high-paying job. He would need considerable time and possibly retraining to re-enter the workforce.


The motorcyclist received a TAC lump sum settlement and other compensation entitlements totalling nearly a million dollars.
