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