Workers Comp

Any workers in Australia, regardless you are on a full-time, part-time or casual basis, under an oral or written contract of service or apprenticeship, should be protected by the workers compensation insurance.

Workers’ compensation is a compulsory statutory form of insurance for all employers in every state and territory in Australia and provides protection to workers if they suffer a work-related injury or disease.

If you were injured at work, or while you were travelling to or from work, or injured during your break, you may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation.

Workers’ compensation covers reasonable expenses including medical and hospital costs, occupational and rehabilitation expenses and potentially more.

We recognise that financial concerns, especially when you’re unable to work, can be overwhelming. To alleviate this stress, our lawyers work on a No Win / No Fee basis. This means you won’t owe us any legal fees unless we successfully resolve your claim.

Most frequent questions and answers

No. We offer free initial consultation. You don’t need to pay us anything until your matter settles. 

If you were injured at work, or while you were travelling to or from work, or injured during your break, you may be eligible to make a claim for workers’ compensation. 

You may be entitled to recover damages for your pain and suffering, past and future medical expenses, rehabilitative treatments, loss of wages, loss of future work capacity (also known as future economic loss), superannuation, care and assistance. 

Unfortunately we cannot give you an estimation until your matter is thoroughly assessed. Every case is unique and requires assessment based on all available medical and other evidence. 

It depends.

In addressing this question, we often use the 𝐀𝐓𝐎’𝐬 𝐬𝐢𝐱 𝐤𝐞𝐲 𝐟𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐨𝐫𝐬 to determine whether someone is an employee or a contractor:
🔹 Ability to subcontract/delegate: are you free to delegate the work to other workers to complete the work for you?
🔹 Basis of payment: do you get paid when you complete the work?
🔹 Equipment, tools and other assets: do you use your own tools and equipment to complete the work and does not receive any allowance or reimbursement?
🔹 Commercial risks: do you bear the risk yourself?
🔹 Control over the work: do you get to choose how, where and when the work is done?
🔹 Integration: do you provide services or perform work to further your own business?
If you are answering yes to the above, you are likely to be a contractor and you may not be entitled for workers’ compensation.

Each case is different, but there are four main things that can affect how long it takes to handle your claim. These are how serious and complicated your injury is, how many parties are involved, whether there’s enough evidence to support your claim, and the legal steps required for your claim. Having an experienced specialist handle your claim helps make sure no time is wasted and that your case is resolved as quickly and effectively as possible.

95% of matters resolve before court. Your lawyer will advise you whether your matter should proceed to court and the associated costs and risks.
