Workers' Compensation Claims

Workers’ Compensation Claims

Injured In A Workplace Accident And Made A Claim?

If you have been injured at work, our team of personal injury lawyers can help you with your claim for workers’ compensation for your injuries and loss.

We can assist you with your claim for the following:

  • Payments of compensation for loss of wages
  • Payment for medical treatment and travel
  • Payment for assistance towards vocational rehabilitation
  • Lump sum payments for permanent impairment

The workers’ compensation system is complicated, has time limits, has limits on the amounts to which you can be entitled and has significant penalties such as ceasing your workers’ compensation payments if you do not comply with the specific and detailed provisions of the Act.

We can assist you with all aspects of your claim including acting on your behalf at WorkCover if any disputes arise to protect your legal rights and entitlements.

We will take care of all matters necessary to bring your claim to negotiation of a successful lump sum settlement.

We recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible after the workplace accident so that we can help you to achieve the maximum amount of compensation for your claim.

You will not be charged for the initial consultation if you do not wish to proceed.

Workplace Injury Compensation

You will not have to pay any legal costs while the claim is running and all of your legal costs will be paid at the conclusion of the claim when you receive your lump sum payment.

We will pay for all medical report fees and any other disbursements which need to be paid while the claim is running.

At the conclusion of the claim your workers’ compensation insurer (in addition to paying a lump sum payment to finalise the claim) will make a reasonable contribution towards payment of your legal costs, however they are not required to pay for all of your legal costs and there is always a “gap fee” that is payable by the client.

The “gap fee” which you will pay in your case when it is settled will not exceed 10% of any final lump sum payment.

You are entitled to weekly payments of your salary, medical expenses, the services of a rehabilitation provider to assist you in a your return to work as well as travel expenses.

Yes. We can take over your matter and represent you. We first meet with you to discuss your claim and the outcome you are seeking. We know the claim is important to you and that passing it on may be a difficult task.

This is why we should discuss with you the assistance you require and the services we can provide before representing you. That way we know you have made an informed decision either way.

We can of course assist you with settlement of your claim and we understand that money cannot change what you have been through.

We will fight to achieve the maximum award of compensation for you.

If you live outside of the metropolitan area we can still assist you. You don’t need to personally attend our offices for the first consultation and we can arrange for home visits or teleconferences to suit your needs.
