A traumatic birth experience can have an immense impact on individuals and their families. In support of this, Brave Legal has formed a new partnership with Australasian Birth Trauma Association (ABTA).
Potential entitlements include compensation for lost wages and medical expenses.
If you suffer from a permanent injury, you may be able to access “no-fault” lump sum compensation; or if you were injured in negligent circumstances, you may be entitled to make a common law claim for your pain and suffering and past and future lost wages.
If a workplace injury has tragically resulted in a death, there are benefits available for family members and those affected by the loss including a lump sum, pension and counselling.
All WorkCover benefits have specific criteria you must meet. To ensure you are properly compensated, it is important to get guidance when applying for any WorkCover benefits.
Time limits often apply and getting early legal advice is recommended.Meet our lawyers
The WorkCover system can be difficult to navigate and it can be tricky to know when or if you need a lawyer.
A personal injury lawyer can help you navigate the system and advocate for you when dealing with an insurance company or your employer. An experienced lawyer will be able to tell you when to apply for compensation and the chances of a successful outcome.
Brave Legal has over 30 years’ experience in worker’s compensation claims and only acts on a no-win, no-fee basis. We recognise that the process can be stressful and we offer a free counselling service for our clients and their families through our “Brave Support” program.

The world of workers compensation is long, hard and confusing; but the team at Brave Legal always treated my case with kindness, respect and great understanding. They always had time to make sure that I knew what woould happen next and how I could best prepares. I am thankful for their expertise and could not have chosen anyone better understanding to represent me.Marlene A.
I wholeheartedly endorse Bree of Brave Legal. Her profound expertise, unshakable integrity, pragmatic mindset, and sincere compassion shine brilliantly. We were introduced to her by another lawyer in a different domain, and it’s abundantly clear why she was highly recommended. In an industry crowded with self-proclaimed lawyers, Bree distinguishes herself and truly stands out. From our initial interaction to the conclusion of our legal matter, our experience with the entire team at Brave Legal has been truly exceptional. If it were possible, I would gladly award 100 stars. Thank you immensely!Yasmin O.
I came to Bree after being treated appallingly by an ASX-listed firm that was only ever interested in making a profit for their shareholders. They couldn’t even get the name of the defendant correct on court documents let alone accurately outline the circumstances of my injury, but tried to bill me for their mistakes anyway! But from the moment I met her, Bree understood my claim and its significance, and genuinely wanted to help me get the justice I deserved. She kept me informed of the process every step of the way and I always felt supported – especially whenAndrea P.

Bree connected professionally and emotionally and was so caring and thoughtful. It was an amazing and supportive experience. Bree, thank you for your tremendous support during my case. It took so much pressure off and allowed me to focus on my recovery. You genuinely care about your clients and that’s very difficult to find these days.Christine I.
