Workplace Injuries and Workplace Compensation
If you’ve been injured or suffered an illness at work, you could be eligible to claim for worker’s compensation.
Suffering injury in the workplace can be a stressful and challenging part of your journey. We offer clear accurate advice as to your rights and entitlements under the relevant Workers Compensation scheme whether it is Federal or State, within NSW or outside NSW. Dealing with insurance companies can be frustrating and confusing. Our team can assist you every step of the way to ensure you maximise your entitlements.
Our team can assist you if you have been injured while working, during travel for your employment or at other work sites.
Workers Compensation legislation requires that “work is a substantial contributing factor” to your injury. It does not require that your employer was negligent. However, if we are able to establish the threshold you may also be entitled to sue your employer in negligence.
You have the right to weekly compensation, medical expenses and a lump sum compensation for injuries that result in a permanent impairment.
How is it funded?
The Workers Compensation Independent Review Office (WIRO) may fund your case. What this means is that you do not pay for the professional fees or disbursements as they are funded by WIRO.
If for any reason you are not funded by WIRO we can act on a no win, no fee basis (conditions may apply). There are strict time limits for making a claim so seeing a lawyer is important to ensure you are on the right path and know what you are entitled to.
