Work injury

A workplace injury can be devastating. Finding a lawyer who is compassionate and an expert in the area is critical so that you understand the process and can focus on your recovery.

Our awards.

If you have been injured at work, you and your family may have entitlements under the WorkCover scheme.

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.
