Workers Compensation Claim
Have you been injured at work?
If you were injured at work, you need to know your legal rights!
If you were injured as a result of an accident which happened at work or when you were travelling to or from work, then you have entitlements to receive Workers Compensation.
Talking to a workers compensation lawyer is the best way to determine if you have a workers compensation claim and they can advise you on what steps to take to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to receive.
Workers Compensation is a no fault scheme which means that you do not have to prove that your accident was caused by someone else’s negligence in order to claim compensation.
Our compensation lawyers will advise you of the types of compensation you can get through a Workers Compensation claim which include:
• Payment of benefits for time off work
• Payment of medical and rehabilitation expenses
• Payment of travel expenses for attending doctors appointments
• Lump Sum Compensation for your injuries and impairment
When the insurer accepts liability for your claim, they will usually pay your medical expenses and loss of wages automatically. What they usually don’t tell you about is your right to also claim lump sum compensation.
You are still eligible to claim lump sum compensation for your injuries and impairment even if you are no longer working for the same employer or even if your injury occurred many years ago.
Once your lump sum claim has been settled you are still entitled to receive ongoing payment of your medical expenses and wage loss from the insurance company.
Has your claim been denied? If your insurer does not accept liability for your claim your case will be prepared by a workers compensation lawyer for assessment by the Workers Compensation Commission in order to claim all of the workers compensation benefits you are entitled to receive.
Time limits apply to lodging claims, so before your time runs out talk to us about getting legal advice from a workers compensation lawyer who will evaluate your case for FREE.
