FLOOD VICTIM? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

FREE legal assistance is available
FLOOD victims are eligible for free legal advice as they recover from the devastating rains over the weekend.
Lawyers from the Disaster Response Legal Service NSW team stand ready to provide legal assistance covering a range of issues, including insurance claims, tenancy, credit and debt, financial hardship, social security entitlements and employment.
 
Legal Aid NSW CEO Brendan Thomas said that civil lawyers from the Disaster Response Legal Service NSW were specialists in areas of law that are likely to impact victims of extreme weather events.
 
“All of our solicitors providing legal help at have undergone training about what to expect,” Mr Thomas said.
 
“This is important work at a difficult and stressful time in people’s lives, so part of the training is about how best to respond to the trauma experienced by those affected by disasters.
 
“Having an experienced advisor to help you navigate through legal issues can significantly reduce trauma and pave the way to rebuilding lives.”
 
Free legal advice is available to anyone effected by a disaster. For more intensive casework, a means and merit test is applied. Victims of disasters are priority clients of Legal Aid NSW.
 
Anyone needing legal help can call Disaster Response Legal Service NSW on 1800 801 529, or your local Legal Aid NSW office.
