Workers Compensation Claims

Have you suffered an injury as a result of an accident at work? You may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation. This also applies to any injuries which occur at work or as a result of work and any pre-existing injury, illness or disease which is worsened by your employment.

You should report the incident to your employer, complete a WorkCover claim form and see your doctor to obtain a workers’ compensation medical certificate. The WorkCover claim form and medical certificate are lodged with your employer who will forward these documents on to the relevant insurance company.

If you claim is accepted by your employer’s insurer then you may think you don’t need our assistance. However, it is always a good idea to see a lawyer to make sure you are getting all of your legal entitlements and to make sure that you receive advice regarding the critical deadlines under the workers’ compensation system.

If you have been paid workers’ compensation payments you may find yourself in a position where the insurance company seeks to reduce or discontinue your payments.

Call Kate Dempster for a personalised solution for your particular situation who will either work directly with you or she will supervise another solicitor in her team to work with you. Kate and her team have a wealth of experience with a caring, individual approaches designed to deliver the best outcome possible for you.

Have you been involved in an accident? It doesn’t matter whether you were in a car or on a motor bike or cycling.
