    Workplace Injury

    Injured at work?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    Workers Compensation almost always applies to work-related injuries for full-time, part-time, casual or permanent employees. If you have suffered as the result of a workplace injury, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation. As Work Injury Lawyers, we are experts at advising you on your rights for your workers compensation claim and whether your injury at work is a claim we can help you with.

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Workers Compensation insurance exists to help injured workers cover costs associated with their injuries; compensate for pain and suffering; and make up for any associated financial hardship. Whether it be through a WorkCover claim; a workplace or superannuation insurance claim; or through other means; we can help you to access the appropriate compensation. Your payout amount depends on:

    Your injuries or impairments

    Your age & employment history
    Your lost wages – short & long term
    Your expenses associated
    with medical treatment
    Your need for ongoing
    care or rehabilitation

    Motor Vehicle Injury

    Injured in a vehicle accident?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    If the accident happened in Queensland, and you were not the driver at fault, we can help you with your claim – whether you were driving a car, truck, motorcycle or bicycle. We are car accident lawyers and have expertise in injury claims for Queenslanders.

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Compulsory Third Party Insurance exists to help victims of car crashes, automotive accidents and motor vehicle injuries cover costs associated with their injuries; compensate for pain and suffering; and make up for any associated financial hardship. Your payout amount for the car accident claim depends on:

    Your injuries or impairments

    Your age & employment history
    Your lost wages – short & long term
    Your expenses associated
    With medical treatment
    Your need for ongoing
    Care or rehabilitation

    Away From Home Injury

    Injured while away from your home?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    A ‘Public Liability’ injury is one that happens on property you don’t own, like a café or shopping centre – or in a public space like a park or on a footpath. If you’ve suffered a ‘slip and fall’ accident or other injury while out and about walking or on public transport, you may be entitled to make a claim.

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Public Liability insurance exists to help the injured person cover costs associated with their injuries; compensate for pain and suffering; and make up for any associated financial hardship. Your payout amount depends on:

    Your injuries or impairments
    Your age & employment history
    Your lost wages – short & long term
    Your expenses associated
    With medical treatment
    Your need for ongoing
    Care or rehabilitation

    TPD - Total & Permanent Disability

    Unable to work due to illness or injury?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    Superannuation and life insurance policies commonly include insurance for total and permanent disability (TPD).

    Show us your policy, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    The details of TPD policies vary from insurer to insurer, but generally they allow you to make a claim if you’re unable to function in your usual occupation due to illness, impairment or injury.

    The amount of the claim you can make will be determined by the content of your policy, and
    policies can be difficult to understand. What’s more, it’s not uncommon for people to have more that one super fund, and therefore multiple TPD insurance policies. So, why not take advantage of our free consultation and find out exactly what your entitlements are.

    Institutional Abuse

    Have you suffered institutional abuse?

    Let us check your eligibility to make a claim.

    If you’ve been a victim of sexual, physical, emotional or psychological abuse, we’re here to help you receive justice and the compensation you deserve from the institution responsible.

    If you’re not certain an ‘institution’ was at fault for the abuse you’ve suffered, let us advise you. Institutions may include, but are not limited to:

    • Youth care facilities
    • Government detention facilities
    • Religious organisations
    • Public and private schools
    • Sports clubs and other associations

    Tell us what happened, we’ll tell you what to expect.

    Once we understand the details of your case, we’ll give you an evaluation of your prospects for a successful outcome, and an estimate of the compensation you may expect to receive.

    The amount will depend on a variety of factors, including:

    Pain and suffering you’ve experienced
    Your injuries or impairments

    Your need for ongoing care or rehabilitation

    Associated medical expenses

    Your employment history

    We can’t turn back time – but here’s how we make it better going forward.

    We can’t undo the suffering you’ve experienced, but financial compensation will ease some of the distress associated with your disability. We’ll be with you through the whole process, explaining, and guiding you through it all.

    WE CHAT

    It’s a free consultation.
    We have a chat about the circumstances and nature of your injury to determine if you have a right to make a WorkCover claim or a claim for compensation through or other means. We understand that taking legal action can be stressful, and we do all we can to ease your distress. The chat can take place at our place, your place, or by phone. There is no cost, no pressure, and no obligation.

    WE MEET

    A free detailed discussion.
    Once you know you are eligible to claim compensation, we’ll meet at our place or yours when possible, to discuss the incident in greater detail with a specialist lawyer. We’ll explain how your claim is likely to progress, so you’ll have an idea of what to expect if you choose to proceed. WorkCover claims and other work-related compensation claims are all different, so we can’t tell you exactly how long your claim will take to process – but based on our experience and your details, we’ll give you an estimate. We’ll also explain our fees and ‘No Win, No Fee’ payment method. Again, there is no obligation for you to proceed, and no cost for the meeting if you choose not to proceed.

    WE PLAN

    You say ‘go’ – we build your case.
    Once you fully understand what’s involved, and you’re comfortable with proceeding, you formally appoint us to represent you in making your compensation claim. We then gather all the evidence needed to present the best possible claim – such as witness statements and video footage, medical records and treatments, and documents to support your claim.

    WE LODGE

    We present your case.
    Armed with the evidence required, we lodge your claim with WorkCover; the relevant insurer; or other party. Claims are almost always made against the workplace insurer, not directly against the employer. Then we guide you through each and every step of proceedings, advocating on our behalf, and keeping you informed with regular updates.

    WE CONCLUDE

    We reach a settlement.
    Almost all WorkCover claims and other workplace injury claims settle out of court. Generally we’re able to achieve a fair settlement by negotiation, avoiding the additional cost and stress of a trial. Settlements are achieved when we and the other party agree on a fair payout figure for damages and compensation. In the unlikely event of your claim going to court, we will be with you all the way, presenting the strongest case possible.

    Important: Don’t delay!

    Work injuries can be very traumatic for you and your family. But recovery and rehabilitation must be your first priority. You can’t let money worries get in the way of your recovery – so it’s important to lodge your claim and access compensation as soon as possible.

    Examples of work injuries are:

    • Physical injuries, for example a fractured ankle, a lower back strain and many more.
    • Psychological injuries, such as depression, PTSD and anxiety disorders.
    • Aggravation of a pre-existing condition or pre-existing injury
    • A delayed onset injury or condition, for example asbestosis or mesothelioma
    • An over period of time injury, which could include repetitive-strain injury, psychological, industrial deafness and the like that may take weeks or months to develop.

    Determine your ability to claim – we can do it by phone, in our office, or we can come to you.

    The sooner we determine your eligibility to make a claim, the sooner we can help you access compensation, either through WorkCover, workplace insurance, your superannuation insurance or through private means.

    Strict time
    limits apply.

    Generally, you have up to six months to lodge –
    but the sooner your claim application is accepted,
    the sooner you can access benefits like:
    • Regular payments for lost wages
    • Payments for medical and
    rehab expenses

    FAQs

    Frequently
    Asked
    Questions

    How do I make a claim?
    To be able to claim for a workplace accident, you will have suffered an injury at work. This injury can take the form of a psychological or physical injury, and it has to have been contracted in the course of your employment. You don’t need to have been at your workplace, and in many cases, you can claim for injuries incurred on your way to and from work, and to workplace-related venues such as meetings or other related travel. Injuries that are the aggravation of existing conditions may also be claimable.
    How long will my claim take?
    With every claim having different factors to consider it’s difficult to assess how long your claim will take to process. We can provide you with a better estimate of how long your claim will take in our assessment meeting.
    Do I have to go to court?
    With most workplace compensation claims, we will reach a settlement before your claim proceeds to court. Going to court adds additional cost and stress, and we try to avoid this wherever possible while still getting you the best possible outcome. In the event that your claim does go to court, you can rest assured that we are here to prepare a strong case for your claim and will be by your side every step of the way.
    What kind of compensation am I entitled to?
    When working with your personal injury lawyer in establishing your claim, we will look at your injuries, your age, future expenses (such as surgery), your loss of income (now and in the future), medical bills and out of pocket expenses, and any care you may need.
