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.

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. 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

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.

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, the sooner we can help you access compensation, either through WorkCover, workplace insurance, your superannuation or through private means.

Strict time
limits apply.

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

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 work injury. We’ll be with you through the whole process, explaining, and guiding you at every step.

Step 1

We chat

We chat to determine if you have a claim – at our place, your place or by phone. No cost, and no obligation.

Step 2

We meet

Once you know you are eligible to claim, we’ll meet at our place or yours when possible, and go over the details. Compensation claims are all different, so we can’t tell you how exactly long your claim will take to process – but based on our experience and your details, we’ll give you an estimate. We also explain our fees and ‘No Win, No Fee’ payment method. Again, no cost for the meeting and no obligation to proceed.

Step 3

We plan

Once you decide to proceed, you formally appoint us to represent you. We then gather all the evidence needed to present the best possible claim – witness statements and video footage, medical records and treatments, and documents to support your claim.

Step 4

We lodge

Armed with the evidence required, we lodge your claim. Then we guide you through each and every step of proceedings. Generally, the claim is against the insurer, not directly against your employer.

Step 5

We conclude

Almost all 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. In the unlikely event of your claim going to court, we will be with you all the way, presenting the strongest case possible.

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.
