PEOPLE affected by the Weerite-Pomborneit Black Saturday fire have until the end of April to claim compensation.
The Supreme Court approved a settlement last week, with Powercor agreeing to pay full damages to those who suffered as a result of the fire.
A full page advertisement in The Standard today provides details of the settlement.
Estimated to be worth more than $10 million, Maddens Lawyers commercial litigation principal Brendan Pendergast is hopeful the compensation rollout will be completed by December.
The settlement was approved in the Warrnambool Supreme Court by Justice David Beach.
Under the settlement, Powercor is required to pay victims 100 per cent of the losses to about 30 other Weerite and Pomborneit residents and groups.
People wishing to claim compensation have until April 30 to register.
